    Sadly, he's still better than anyone we have on the roster, and likely to produce better over the next 3-5 years than any of the projects we might pick up in the draft where we're picking.

    He doesn't "suck", but I agree he's not as good as many think.

    Yes he slings a bunch of TD's, but he also turns the ball over a lot and racks up a ton of sacks. But like Doug said, he's better than anything we've got right now at QB.

    If you want a franchise QB...a guy who will be the leaders of your team for many years then I do not think Cutler is that guy. You need to try and draft that guy. Just like we did with Locker. If you want someone who gives us the best chance to win next year then Cutler is probably your guy. I spend my money elsewhere to improve the roster and take my chances that either Locker or newly drafted QB steps up to be the franchise guy.

    We need to rebuild and cleanse ourselves of the Fisher era not put band aids over this big mess

    Locker is very close to being that guy for us, but he HAS to stay healthy. No one knows if thats possible, and honestly most of us are tired of waiting.

    A small piece of me is still okay with Jake Locker staying on as our starter, but Im damn close to being done with the kid. I love everything about him, but if he's unavailable to play, why is he here?

    Eh what?? As much as I like our receivers, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey, Earl Bennett and Martellus Bennett are head and shoulders above ours, without question.

    I wanted us to draft Cutler, but he didn't turn out like I hoped and I would pass on him now.

    No thanks to all 6. It's draft or nothing if those are our choices.

    Head and shoulders better? IDK about that. You could make a case, but they're not light years or whatever better than our receiving corps.

    In fact, lets look up the numbers.

    Brandon Marshall - 1221 yards, 11 TD's
    Alshon Jeffery - 1341 yards, 7 TD's
    Earl Bennett - 243 yards, 4 TD's
    Martellus Bennett - 744 yards, 5 TD's
    3549 total yards, 27 TD's

    vs.

    Kendall Wright - 1029 yards, 2 TD's
    Nate Washington - 880 yards, 3 TD's
    Justin Hunter - 354 yards, 4 TD's
    Delanie Walker - 542 yards, 6 TD's
    2805 yards, 15 TD's

    upon further review maybe you're right. but still we have a better future IMO with such young WR's

    I don't know if it's such a huge difference.

    We're playing stone age football with Loggains, and they've got Marc Trestman's offense. That alone will count for a pretty large discrepancy in #'s.

    Either way, we've got plenty of targets for him to throw to and an OL that should be able to keep him upright (in theory anyway).
