I dont think anyone wants or suggested to flat out replace him. Im saying going by the numbers despite all the hurdles things dont look good. There is allot to blame here from HC TO OC TO OL ETC.... But we still have to proceed with caution. Lets see how he does this season. Lets see if Emery is willing to continue to build around Cutler-and we will really see this with what they do with the oline. Then if things work out hell yeah show him the money. But if we show him the money now and all we get is SOS idk man if I can handle five years of shit offense. I know I have lasted this long lol but its different now. With all the new damn rules why is it still a struggle for us to have a competent offense?

It's delusional to think otherwise. I think some fans fail to realize just how many personnel issues Jerry Angelo left that man. The defense is a "house of cards" due to our key players aging, and the offense is devoid of talent, other than Cutler, Forte, Marshall, AJ & Bennett. Our best (and only decent) OL player is Louis, and we don't even know what we have in him now, after his injury.
Yeah, I don't see Emery as a stupid man. He's not going to add to his personnel woes right now.

Well in my own defense this somewhat explains why I get teed off at threads about who we should want rather than Cutler when there's not even a remote possibility of it happening. It is as I called it total mental masturbation.

The very thing that made the Bears HC spot so attractive to so many offensive minded coaches is the fact the Cutler IS the QB and they don't have to scramble to find one or develop one from scratch. Cutler needs some fixing the way a house needs repainting it doesn't need to be torn down and rebuilt even though Trestman may describe his process that way.
I guess it's just that the lack of reading comprehension, and ability to read between the lines, and the failed logic of it all escapes me at times. You've described the situation accurately and so just why would Phil Emery want to heap an unsettled QB situation on top of the pile he already needs to cope with?
He's trying to get this team into a SB NOW not rebuild it from the ground up and you don't do that by getting rid of your QB the minute a new coach shows up and if he's smart he won't force his MLB out either.
