Jay Cutler Superstar

Will Jay Cutler Bring Back Memories of Rex?

In this edition of "What They're Saying About Jay", we present to you the most inflammatory words that we have read about Cutler since his acquisition. It comes from KC Joyner's "Fifth Down" at the NYT, and the post is titled "Sorry, Bears Fans, Cutler Isn't the Answer"

"I've said it many times and I'll say it again -- Cutler will make Bears fans remember Rex Grossman. He'll make just as many crazy passes but won't suffer the Grossman fate because Chicago's fan base is so in love with him that they will forgive the nutty throws he makes in ways that they never forgave Grossman."

What Joyner forgets is that Rex was once loved tremendously by Bears fans. We are not sycophants. We love our team. But if Cutler starts acting the fool and throwing picks, the honeymoon will be over in a hurry.

That is a ridiculous statement. If this guy thinks that Cutler and Grossman are on the same level, he needs to start writing about another topic.

KC Joyner has his facts right but misses the point. Like the Rex Cannon, JC is a gambler and a gundslinger with supreme confidence in his arm. He's going to make some questionable throws and, yes, turn the ball over. (18 interceptions last year, though he chucked it an awful lot so that number is a tad inflated.) The difference is that JC is a real QB and will offset his picks with big plays--highlight reel type stuff.

Cutler is not a "game manager" and I don't want him to be. Anyone who thinks he's going to suddenly turn into Steve DeBerg and throw four interceptions all year is going to be sorely disappointed.

"He's going to make some questionable throws and, yes, turn the ball over." Every QB including the greats do this.

"The difference is that JC is a real QB and will offset his picks with big plays--highlight reel type stuff."

I hope so!
