    So it sounds like you are becoming a believer!!!!!!

      I always thought Cutler was a good QB. I just did not see any reason to use him this year unless Jake was hurt.

        I still don't see any reason to use him in more than spot duty unless Jake is hurt. I sure feel more confident with him as the backup than having BVP all last season. If needed he could come in and play well.

          I really wish I could have seen the play myself... but I feel tnedator would be fair about giving the criticisms as well, and to be honest (going by the title of the thread) was expecting quite a bit. Obviously pre-season doesn't mean anything, but the good reports in pre-season is much better than the alternative (for some).
          I've got the game taped on my Tivo, what Tned is saying isn't overhyping in the least. Cutler looked very poised. There is no doubt the kid can throw a pass with touch.

            So... honest question....

            Did anyone else notice that he threw off his back foot a number of times? They ended up being good throws, and completions... but isn't that a habit we'd like him to get out of?

            Or am I making it up?


            Don't get me wrong... I was very impressed, and I look forward to seeing more... especially in '07 or '08
            Thanks, Reid!

              I can recall at least one time but I'll have watch again to make sure.

                The thread title is misleading and insulting. It should be called:

                Jay Cutler Play by Play breakdown: The Good, the Great, and the Superhuman
                Victory and defeat are matters of the temporary force of circumstance.



                Thanks, Snk16!!

                  I've now looked a large portion of his throws fromt he first half. I even put them on slow mo. He didn't throw off his back foot, what I did see that only needs about half-a-step forward on his front foot before he makes a throw.

                    I agree. I started looking for that towards the end of the game as I was breaking it down, and meant to mention it, but forgot.

                    I had heard a knock on him was throwing from his back foot. While I didn't track it every play, I can't say that he never did, but it would have been very few times.

                    I agree, it is deceptive. At first glance, if watching live, it almost looks like he is, but what he does is take a short step forward and fire the ball very quickly, but not off his back foot.

                    While I am by no means even close to a QB expert, his fundamentals appeared very sound to me.
