  • Is Cutler More Like Elway or Favre?

    Just thought I would make a thread to see some fun opinions

    Does Jay Cutler play more like Brett Favre or John Elway at this point in his young career?

    P.S. - no Elway homerism!

    Favre- not quite as athletic as Elway and more Accurate than Elway. Altho his 4th quarter drives are a lot like Elway's

      he reminds me of both qbs. favre and elway had cannons and of course cutler is known for his lazer rocket arm. but cutler can throw a pretty ball and he is also pretty elusive for his size with reminds me of elway. but then his favre instincts take over and is always looking for the home run play...which of course has got favre in trouble over the years (ints, fumbles) and has got favre a lot of miracle plays. also cutler throws from sideline to sideline like favre...its actually a work of art to see him do this.

      cutler does have some pretty good 4th quarter comeback wins like elway though.

      but he doesnt remind me of anyone else but these 2 qbs.

        He is hands down better than Bret at this stage of his career, and just slightly better than Elway at this stage.

          I said combination of the two, but he isn't UNSTOPPABLE. He's just a good combination.

                  I think he's more like... Cutler.

                  Seriously though, even though he has qualities of both players he really has a style all his own. He has a quirky setup and throwing motion. It almost looks weak but somehow he gets the ball there fast.

                    I Bet I Get Heat For This One...

                    Some of you aren't going to like my angle on this pertinent and oft-repeated question these days in Broncoland.

                    I think...in my humble opinion,...that Jay Cutler is better than either Elway OR Farve..."at this stage of his career."

                    And for several reasons.

                    1) Apparently, Cutler's experience at Vanderbilt, you know, having Wal-Mart door greeters block for you against Florida and Florida State every year...starting as a true Freshman...and all the rest, has given Cutler a poise that neither Farve NOR Elway possessed 11 games into their careers. Actually....not even close. Either that or his parents raised him right. LOL!!!

                    2) Cutler already has more 4th quarter come-from-behind wins than either Elway or Farve had 11 games into their careers. Elway, while relieved for about 5-6 games by Steve DeBerg in his rookie year, didn't manage his first "come-from-behind" victory until the last two games of his rookie season....against the Clevand Browns and the (then) Baltimore Colts.

                    3) Neither is anywhere near as strong as this kid apparently is. And I know, I know....strength is not supposed to be a real factorable attribute in a QB....but consider for a moment...at the Scouting Combine, Cutler lifted more weight than all but 3 players IN THE ENTIRE DRAFT THAT YEAR!!! And he was just goofing around too. Then he followed that up with a 400 lbs single lift. To put that in perspective, Jay Cutler lifted the same weight that Marcus Thomas did this year at the Scouting Combine. The strongest lineman I ever heard about in Bronco lore was Rubin Carter, and he benched 525 lbs. in one lift. This kid is S*T*R*O*N*G. This is a dimension to the position that the NFL simply has never seen before, and to be quite honest, I have no idea how it will play out. But one thing I DID notice against the Steelers and others. When he scrambles Jay cuts to the middle of the field, not the sidelines, and I've seen him literally stiff-arm LB's out of their cleats (Vanderbilt runs). Palomalu wasn't exactly intimidating on his ring-around-the-collar saving tackle.

                    4) Cutler is more accurate and more productive. Brett Farve didn't throw for 300 yds+ until his 28th professional game. He didn't throw for 3 TD's in a game until his 13th game. After 11 games, NEITHER JOHN ELWAY NOR BRETT FARVE owned a single NFL record. Jay Cutler does.

                    I could go on, but why bother. The numbers and my own eyes speak for themselves. Jay Cutler is better than either Farve OR Elway....at this stage of his career.

                      P.s.

                      Oh, and for the record, I think that John Elway is the greatest QB to ever play the game....so far.

                        All I gotta say is:

                        Cutler/Marshall > Brady/Moss........

                        C + M > B + M
                        ____________

                        That's right!

                          my first opinion of him was that he was like CArson Palmer. But now I would have to say he is more like Farve.

                            Jay reminds me of John Elway more. Jay Cutler has proved that he has the drive, and moves his team into field goal range to win a game. Before long, Jay will start diving the Bronx down the field for winning TDs. But Jay throws the ball alot better than Elway. When Elway got into trouble, he used his feet to run away from that trouble. Jay is the type of QB that makes plays through the pass in sticky situations. Thats what Favre does too.... Ok, so i take that back....Jay is like Elway and Favre combined. All i can say is that Jay Cutler will be one of the Best QBs Denver has ever had.

                              I like Cutler but this is very unrealstic.

                              Favre made the playoffs his first year starting.. and won a playoff game and only threw 13 Picks at the Rate Cutler is going he will throw 20.
