    I'll take him for another year simply because we don't have anyone better to plug in there. Five years is crazy.

    Yes because he finally has a supporting cast. I do not want a rookie or some lame dick FA unless Drew Brees demands a trade to the bears. Once we clean house of Jerry Angelo garbage picks we can move forward towards rebuilding this team into the most powerful force in the universe I will support Jay. Stop throwing him under the bus for every bad play he makes.

    I'm pretty on the fence as well. On the one hand Jay has had a merry-go-round of OC's and no long term cohesion. Honestly, I don't know how long it takes to get over being "shell shocked" and settling in to make better in-game decisions but if Trestman believed that he should take the rest of the season off in favor of Josh I'd be perfectly ok with that.

    I'm going with no.

    1. Injury prone
    2. Inconsistent
    3. "bad jay" all but gaurentees a loss

    I would not mind singing him to a modest 16-18 mil 2 year deal and draft a qb with first or 2ndr rounder (likely first) to be the starter. Very likely the kid would end up playing here and there in relief of an injured Cutler and when he is ready to take the reigns we let him assume that role (dosent matter if its TC his rookie year or not till his 3rd season, whenever he is truly able to succeed he can take over.)

    I honestly feel that Jay's pride would get in the way and he wouldnt accept such a deal, but if we have to use McCown as a "filler" until the kid gets ready. Long term I think its in our best interest to not tie up 100 mil into cutler, use that money to fill holes and let Tresty start fresh with a talnted rookie

    I'll say yes. The improvement in a short period of time with another new offense and coach is impressive (at least to me). It's going to take some time for Jay to get comfortable, while for JM he hasn't had to deal with the crap that was Lovie and his stooges both on the field (Oline) and off the field (Martz, Tice....).

    Only need to worry about next year since they'll franchise him at the end of this year.

    Not for 5 years. At least that's my opinion. I am more on the fence now than ever. I have seen a very mediocre QB (McCown) move the ball VERY well in this offense. That means that Trestman can probably develop a real stud if he gets the right guy --- wouldn't have to be the #1 QB pick (which we won't get anyway), so that makes having a very productive QB much more achievable than I would have thought before seeing McCown.

    What confounds me is that the better QB, the better they should do in this system. I believe (I think...) that Cutler is a much better QB, but one could even make the argument that McCown has been more effective. In this new O, Cutler HAS shown he can also move the ball (first drive against the Lions), but he continues to try and push things which normally don't end well with him.

    I am ok with keeping him longer to give him more time and I am also ok with moving away from him. We need to keep McCown one way or another though. He is a good inexpensive insurance policy that can run this particular Offense.

    I don't know about you guys but I'd rather go back to having 12 different QBs in 10 years. Lets face it. Jay has been the best QB we've had and to think that good QBs grown on trees is forgetting our storied past with them. I'd rather have Jay in the same offense growing with AJ and Bmarsh. I'd rather try some stabilty. Then again the next guy is going to be awesome......I can feel it

    Here's a thought. maybe Both Jay and McCown are both looking pretty damn good this year because we have the best 1-2 punch in the NFL at wideout with AJ and BM. Not to mention finally a very good tightend.
