    I use to believe that Cutler could be an elite QB especially after Trestman came on board however after this game I really have my doubts. I think he's a good QB but can't take that next step. He had a pathetic game. We need to draft someone next year.

    Even if we keep Cutler, I'd still like to see us draft a guy for Trestman to develop, unless he already thinks Matt Blanchard is that guy. Somebody with a high ceiling.

    That's the question that this last game raises. We don't know yet to be fair. But seeds of doubt remain and they are legitimate. What the homer fan-boys here (and I for one WANT THE BEARS TO WIN AND CUTLER TO KICK ASS) don't seem to realize is that:
    It isn't "just one bad losing game" (there's a pattern here of coming unglued going back years)
    It's not just "being off" (it's that's when he's off, he's really really off and comes unhinged w/ ball security losing games)
    It's not about Cutler being a "good QB" or not (its about whether he's good enough to go deep and beat the best)
    It's not a question of him being the best we have (it's about whether to commit big $$$ going forward LT or not)

    I have no problem with GOOD JAY. He isn't Manning and he never will be. That's fine by me. When he's playing well, his ceiling is plenty high enough IMO.

    I do have a problem with BAD JAY. His floor is currently too low. When he's having a "bad day" he needs to find a way to be LESS BAD. As in, not literally throwing any chance at winning away. He needs to raise his floor on his "off" days.

    Games in which he turns the ball over 3 or more times have to become a lot less frequent (as in, VERY RARE) to justify $15+ million going forward. I want to see him get his TO average down to < 1.5/game.

    I second that. They should be grooming someone to take over once Cutler's performance start on the down turn.
