    I am now on the fence at the beginning of the season I would have said yes easily now it's woo nelly. This lose could be a blessing in disguise if Jay does come back this season from ALL his injury's this year. Maybe Trestman will not be as hesitant to pull Jay when things go bad even in a playoff game if they miraculously limp in figuratively and literally.

    Now thinking on your question if the price is really George Halas right Jay could be the QB plus we keep Josh and we get a developmental QB at same time than I'm all for it. We need to build the D ASAP which would be a perfect time for developmental QB it's obvious Trestman is a QB's wet dream so lets give him 3QBs. Then we eventually move the developmental QB to starter Jay becomes 2nd and Josh is moved to QB coach. Because Josh will eventually be Trestman's replacement.

    So I guess that's a yes only IF all my demands are met and I never ask for much.

    Thanks for the nice compliment. I definitely appreciate it.

    I agree wholeheartedly with what you said. If Trestman can make guys like Scott Mitchell, Jake Plummer, Rich Gannon, and Josh McCown look really good, then we should absolutely put our trust in him to develop a new QB and also expect more from Cutler in his offense.

    That would be such a dickmove imo.. I'm not sure Marshall would be too happy with this and because of that he might not play on the same level as he had played on in Chicago...

    I have been a big Cutler supporter. He does make bad decisions under pressure and the decision to push for pkaying time before he was really healed was another bad decision. The guy is not stupid, but he does play someone who is on tv.

    I was fine with losing McCown a few weeks ago, but the guy can run this offense pretty well and has been able to stay healthy. I don't care is he is 62 years old. If he can win games for us and run this O, why let him go? At least keep him a BU. That has worked for us pretty well right now. Especially if we let Cutler walk. We need to have someone that we know can do the job on staff. And he is cheap.

    We need to draft a QB THIS YEAR! The 2014 QB class is very deep and is our best shot for one.

    His fantastic upside (great arm, can make any throw) is exactly cancelled out by his downside (poor decision making). If he was making progress on improving his downside, I'd give him a thumbs up ....but he isn't. He is currently surrounded by some fantastic talent in his supporting cast. If he cannot excel with the guys on the offensive side of the ball now... he never will.

    Sorry...
    But if Jay Cutler cant give you a better season then he has shown in a contract year... Then what can you expect from here on out. This is the year he HAS to play his best football... This is the best he can do... And up until this point I say he has been slightly above average to average in a QB friendly offense with all those offensive weapons that Brady, Rogers or the likes would kill for...

    I know QB's don't grow on trees and Jay is the best QB the Bears have had in probably forever... But does that mean settle for average. As someone pointed out earlier he isn't that great in big time games. Has a lousy record against the Packers... I guess for me its just too early to say yay or nay... I want jay to be the guy but I doubt he will settle for anything significantly less then what Romo received and I don't think he is worth that.

    That is part of the aggravation. He HAS improved. But he still makes those boneheaded interceptions, and then gets injured just when you think you are going to have a "must have" stretch of games to use to evaluate him by. He did get better, but how much better?
    Better enough to spend a FT or long term contract with? Add in that a journeyman QB has been able to step up and play extremely well in the same system, and you have quite a few question marks to try and sort out. And with Cutler injured, some of those may not get satisfactorily answered before a decision needs to be made.

    Some tough choices to be made here. Hopefully some better decisions are made than the one where they decided to play Cutler after 3 weeks of a groin tear.
