    It's not an insult. It's a fact. Your assessment of Cutler wasn't even good enough to be remedial if I'm being perfectly honest. There's no shame in it. It's like you saying to me, "You don't know the first thing about how to engineer a bridge." I'd say you're right.

    It's not important how I know QBs and the game of football. I just do. I've put the work in to know what I know. I've played the game as long as anyone without semi-pro or pro experience.

    I'm not Josh McDaniels. The only thing I do know is what I've seen from the Patriots. The Patriots got rid of Drew Bledsoe. Why? Bledsoe had a great arm, he had some Pro Bowl seasons. Belichick couldn't make Bledsoe work? Maybe Bledsoe was too talented for Belichick? Was Bernie Kosar too talented for Belichick? That's absurd.

    And yes, McDaniels can even know Cutler as a football player by watching him on film. You can tell an incredible amount about a QB by watching film. You can tell his work ethic. How good are his mechanics? Good mechanics takes a lot of work to develop. It takes a lot of attention to detail as well. How good is his understanding of defenses? What's the first thing he's looking at as far as pre-snap? Does he make adjustments based on defensive alignments? How well does he know his own offense? Does he linger on his primary receiver? How fast does he go to a secondary read? Does he go to a third read? A fourth? How quickly does he make decisions? It's one thing to understand defenses, but it's a completely other to process that information quickly enough to make decisions at the right time. How much courage does he have? Does he stand in there and take the shot to deliver the ball? Is he a leader? Does he elevate the play of the other players around him? Does he alienate them? How mentally tough is he? Does he get a little jittery in the pocket after taking a shot? Or does he stand in there again? Does he get intimidated? Does he trash talk back to people who trash talk him? The list goes on and on. There are so many intangible things that you can tell about a player. You might not know the guy on a personal level, but you know things about the guy that even people who do know him on a personal level don't know.

    The Patriots also knew Cutler. Wasn't that obvious when the Patriots played against Cutler last season? Does 17 of 26 for 168 yards 1 TD and 2 INTs ring a bell? Yep, they knew Cutler too.
    So I guess that is why he said he was looking forward to working with Cutler? That he thought Cutler would do well in his system? And no I do not know all about QB's or football, never said I did. I guess everyone that thinks they know a lot should all have the same opinion on it as you? So what is there to debate? There is none, it is clear if you watch the film, you know all you need and everyone would come away with the same opinion.

    Nice! needing to throw insults make you feel like a big man!!Me the little woman cowering, hardly. Your opinions of me mean NADA so save the insults. I am not the stat lover here!!!!! I dont give two sh*** about the stats. You think you know alot about a QB because you have spent so much time with him! Or is just watching the games that make you an EXPERT? When can we see you call a game in the NFL oh mighty one? McD Couldn't handle one with real talent, he has to try to dig it out of them. How the hell could he KNOW Cutler, what a week or two and he KNOWS him, yet no time with Orton just watching some film and he KNOWS Orton.So he wants a so so QB, that's all you needed to say! Now go eat a ding dong and lighten up!!!!

    Well he didnt! And what actions? Showing up and trying to work with the man? No it wasmore like McD not liking Bowlens " Jay is the man around here now" comment and having to show him who was boss.

McD also saw how quickly Cutler picked things up.

    When it came to the rumor about Cutler's drinking and McD being put off by it, it should also be noted that the same speculation said that Cutler's football knowledge, or lack thereof, scared the heck out of McDaniels. I don't know if that's true, but it seriously fits with the actions that took place after.

    You obviously don't know much about QBs except maybe what's on a stat sheet. That's okay. Just don't try to pass it off like you do.

Elway was a gunslinger to the end, he just learned how and when to use it. What if we gave up on Elway early? Again to think that Cutler should know all after two full seasons, is just dumb. I dont know if McDaniels is lessor of a coach, thats why I had question marks. I certainly think he jumped to conclusions about Cutler, and I believe it was his thinking from the beginning.

    Listen, I have a simple statement here. Joe Montana. Was not the most athletic. Did not have the strongest arm. Was not the fastest.

    But he was the smartest guy on the field. He did make good decisions. He did have good accuracy in the mid passing range.

    He had a coach that knew how to play to his strengths. He had a GM that knew how to draft guys to compliment him.

    Joe Montana was not the most physically gifted QB out there. BUT, with the right TEAM surrounding him and him knowing what his strengths were, he was able to elevate himself and those around him.

    It isnt always about physical gifts. This is why we dont talk about Ryan Leaf or Jeff George anymore.

    It is about a team and a system that fits what your QB can do.
    I hope you're not comparing Orton and Joe Montana.

    By miscalculated other team's defenses, you mean he didn't read the defense right, right? I agree with that.

    I also think Shanahan ran him out of the pocket so often so he could cut the field in half giving Cutler less to read.
    Yes, something that will be learned after more time and the right coaching. Again OPPORTUNITY, he should have been given one, with McD.

    It was when Elway stopped being a gunslinger and started handing the ball off to TD that Elway started winning championships. Elway picked his spots in the passing game, but relied more on his running game to get the job done. What made it great is that Elway did this after carrying his team for so long. He let the team support him.

    When Elway put up his career stats, what was the Broncos record? When Elway averaged 3,256 yards 25 TDs and 12 INTs per season what was the Broncos record? So with the decrease in yards, the increase in TDs and the decrease in INTs, he didn't seem to take nearly as many risks over his last few years. He trusted Shanahan, TD, and the system. That meant championships.

    I'm not saying Cutler can't do the same thing. But, the question is, does Cutler want to do the same thing? At this point? Probably not. Look how long it took Elway to change. Favre never changed.

    You yourself said that McD is supposed to be a "the right teacher". Why? Because McD knows QBs, maybe? But it's easier to think McD doesn't know what he's doing for you. Then you go on to speculate that McD is lesser of a coach because he didn't want Cutler. Well I have a "maybe" for ya. Maybe Cutler isn't smart enough to handle the system. Maybe Cutler doesn't understand what he's supposed to do when he sees zone coverage. Maybe Cutler locks onto his primary receiver and is lazy going to his 2nd and 3rd reads. Maybe Cutler makes too many mistakes.

    What Cutler could read were the "tea leaves" and he didn't like what he read or what they told him. BTW, he does still look good in orange and blue!!

I don't blame him for all the interceptions, some were on the mark the receivers just didn't deliver. I think sometimes he needed better control of the arm, and how hard he threw it. I will say I loved watching him, that strength, and how good he is out of the pocket. I didn't like that sometimes he would risk himself by running the ball, like Elway did, but I guess sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. I think with more work (yes some on offense, but that does not include giving up our QB) we would have gone all the way. But it wasn't givin a chance, not even a season.
