Jay Cutler Saga Finally Ends In Chicago

April 3, 2009 at 2:03 am 1 comment


Thank you, thank you, thank you. Jay Cutler is NOT a Washington Redskin. I honestly believe that this is one of the best moves the Redskins DID NOT make…and they rarely do anything right. Sure I love them, but they have to have one of the worst front offices in all of sports.

The rumored trade of Jason Campbell and two first-round picks for Jay Cutler fell through on Tuesday when the Chicago Bears upped the ante. The Bears sent a 2009 first-rounder and third-rounder, along with a 2010 first-round pick and Kyle Orton to the Denver Broncos in exchange for Jay Cutler and a fifth-round pick in this April’s draft.

When you have to give up as much as TWO first-round draft picks, I ask myself one question. Is the player we are getting in return the missing piece we need to make it to the Super Bowl? Not necessarily win the Super Bowl, but just get there. If the answer is ‘no’, then you do not give up your two first-round picks along with your half-decent starting quarterback. If the answer is ‘yes’, then you contemplate the idea for about 48 hours just to make sure and then you pull the trigger. But that’s just in my general manager mind.

The Redskins have a quarterback named Jason Campbell. He has the perfect size for an NFL quarterback. He had a decent run in college at Auburn, including one undefeated season. He has decent mobility to escape the pocket and he has a cannon for an arm. So why haven’t you heard of Jason Campbell? The Redskins enjoy changing coaching staffs and position coaches just for the mere fun of it, or so it seems. Therefore, Jason Campbell has played under a new offensive coordinator every year he has been in the pros…it’s ridiculous. But please do not get me wrong, I am not making excuses for Jason Campbell. There is no doubt that the guy has to step up and make plays, being a playmaker is how you get the money and recognition.

Dan Snyder and wannabe GM Vinny Cerrato agreed that it would be a fun idea to whip up some talks about trading away Campbell and bringing Cutler to D.C. So what does Cutler have to offer? Well, he’s 25-years-old with a cannon arm and decent mobility. He came from a horrible Vanderbilt football program that lost a lot more games than they won. He battles Type I diabetes. His name has been in the news a lot lately because of an apparent bad attitude and a love for the Denver nightlife. And so I ask my question: If Jay Cutler comes to the Washington Redskins, does he push us over the top and take us to the Super Bowl? And I would guess that my answer is the same as yours…

Thanks again Dan and Vinny for practicing a little thing normal people like to call ‘consistency’. It’s nice to have the team name thrown around in every football move there is, but don’t find your way onto Chris Mortensen’s short-list.

To the Chicago Bears: Your chances of making the Super Bowl do not drastically increase with the addition of Jay Cutler. However, it is a definite upgrade from Kyle Orton.

And to the Denver Broncos: You made out pretty well. You have some decent draft picks that you can use to assess your struggling defense and perhaps find a quarterback that Josh McDaniels can call his guy.

Be social…

    Crazy trade,. I think the Broncos got good value in return. Orton isn’t terrible, and if they want they can trade some of their picks in the draft for a rookie QB (sanchez, stafford?)

    Jay Cutler won’t do well in Chicago because they have no WRs!
