    point wasn't that he won't have a #1 wr, Marshal is a top 5-10 WR that literally bails out Cutler from some really poor throws, and that most qb's don't have that and have to learn to throw w/timing and touch b/c of it, ie really bad idea for Teddy B side to be learning from those 2.

    I understand the logic there Ric and I concur.

    But if he does end up a Cleveland Brown though he will have Josh Gordon to bail him out.

    From the WR standpoint, Jeffrey training with them last offseason only seemed to help him. IMO, you might be over analyzing it. Cutler is not perfect by any stretch, but I think it can only help him.

    if teddy b-side was going to be a WR hell ya I'd be on board w/you. But Marsh knows nothing about being a QB.

    Well we don't know where he's going, so we don't know if he won't have that type of receiver. I think he'll be alright...I wouldn't read too much into it.

    yeah.. I know what you mean.

    Just not something I'm real worried about. Plus, I'm sure we have no interest in him anyways. Even if Cutler teaches him some bad habits (and I doubt it -- this is basically to help him put on a show - playing catch pretty much), he won't be our problem.

    I don't know how TB's arm strength compares to Cutler's (it's probably not as good) so I understand the point. Cutler has always gotten by via power over finesse. And brawn over brains so to speak. Jay improved last year thanks to Trestman but there were still a few times he forced the ball when he shouldn't have or threw a duck off his back foot thinking his arm was going to save him.

    On the other hand, and I know anyone can have a bad day, TeddyB was atrociously inaccurate at his pro day when every factor was controlled in his favor to make him look good. He just might need all the help he can get. I'm glad we aren't in the market for a 1st round QB and I want no part of this guy.

    MP gets it, and honestly it was meant to be a joke.

    Yeah, no one in their right mind is going to confuse Cutler with a "fine touch" QB. His game is his big arm and the ability to rip it. Sometimes that "arm confidence" gets in the way of better decision making. Trestman was brought in last year in large measure to work with Cutler and soften his edges. I noticed a positive effect last year (although Jay pissed me off big time in the first half of the Cleveland game) but there's more work yet to do.
