    If you answered no, and Dan Marino was the only rookie QB to EVER take a team to the superbowl (he still lost), than Jay Cutler can't fix our team. (we need alot of help).


    If you answered yes, well.... You're probably a Vanderbilt fan.
    I keep thinking about this post more than I should... but....if we don't get to the SB then Jay can't fix our team. Maybe he can IMPROVE our team?! That's the main point...no ONE guy can get a team to the superbowl.

    He also never made another superbowl...so is Dan Marino rookie better than any other Dan Marino in any year? Is a superbowl the only measure. Even that standard doesn't work. I guess Dan never improved since his rookie year?

    The odds are no, but what in world kind of question is this...let's see him play. I'll answer though; I dont' know and neither does anyone.

    The answer is no! He's better.

    This is a stupid thread. Denver fans are really taking a strech even using Marino and Cutler's name in the same sentence. The guy is a rookie, hes never taken an NFL snap, hes been in the league hardly long enough for it to hit him that hes in the NFL.

    And hes been behind a horrid QB, who makes some of the worst QB decisions ever. He's not exactly in Philip Rivers situation where he sat behind a great QB for 2 years.

    I think this thread is based on desperation, because they are already comparing Rivers to Marino, you guys think you have one too. Maybe he is, but theres a better chance that hes not.

    now, if we can put a rookie in, have him playing better than our quarterback who is absolutely terrible this year, and the rookie gets experience? this is a bad idea how?? if we go to the super bowl, there is no way jake is going to take us there. how did he do in the playoffs last year?? did he not throw any interceptions that led to touchdowns against pittsburg? i seem to remember he did... and last year was the best regular season of his career. he has regressed TERRIBLY this year... i was always a plummer fan until this year, when he became a rookie again for some reason, making more mistakes than any rookie quarterback playing this year.
    Funny that you brought that up. When Jake first came here, I loved his style of play. I thought he fit in PERFECTLY with this offense and he would make a great addition. He did- for a while. He played well for the most part last year and I think part of my resentment for him this year is the fact that I did have so much faith in him.

    I argued with anyone that put him down and this year, have found myself on the other side of the coin. I wish he could be more accurate, I truly do. He plays with heart and that is important, but he isn't getting the job done anymore and it is affecting the entire team.

    I don't expect Cutler to be the saving grace for this team, but I think, if nothing else, simply putting Jay in for ONE game could be a much needed wake up call. Let him play one and then watch Jake in practice. Maybe the snake will shed his skin and come back to life- I'd really like that

    DING DING DING

    We have a winner!!!!

    I seriously doubt Cutler takes us to the superbowl. But, as the season has gone on, it's become painfully obvious that Plummer will not either. That being the case, let's at least give Cutler the shot.

    All season I've been for Jake to start this year, and Cutler to sit and learn…UNTILL Jake started costing us games. His play has been a huge factor in the last 2 losses. It almost cost the game in Oakland also.

    All season I've wanted Jake to put it together and start playing like he has in the past. If he is going to get it together this year, it would have been by week 11. One or two bad weeks is a slump. This is not a slump.

    Realistically, with Jake at QB, the Broncos have no real shot at the superbowl. So, let's get the kid in there to get experience, and at least see what he can do.

    GO BRONCOS!!!!

    Dan Marino didnt take the Fins to the Super Bowl his rookie year. As I recall he came on late in the season during a Monday Nighter,threw a couple of late TD's,and palyed well the rest of the season.His second year he thre for an NFL record 5,000 yards and led the Dolphins to the Super Bowl which they lost to the Niners.

    How about we dont put pressure on this kid and let him be the next Jay Cutler.instead of Marino,Elway or Favre

    No... But Phillip Rivers is. 2 Marinos in 1 era... well rivers is closer to marino than big ben is but ben has a bowl. Cutler being the next marino is just not likely although I do think cutler can ball. Maybe he is the answer but HE WILL stumble early putting him in now when the playoffs are still in reach would be foolish. If your like 7-6 or something then ONLY MAAAYBE do you throw him in once you 7-8 or maybe 7-7 it is for sure that a head start would be good for the next year.
    So you actually think leaving Jake in there it's full steam ahead to the playoffs?

    There's a first time for everything. But the situation has to be right. Roethlisberger almost did it his rookie year. Eventually I believe somebody will do it.

    Basically, the odds are not good that we'll go to the Super Bowl with Cutler at the helm. But they might not be any better with Plummer at the helm.

    Let's see how Cutler plays (IF the move happens) before declaring the season a loss.

    Cutler could be the next Marino/Elway/Montanna or he could be the next Ryan Leaf.

    The most likely case is that he will fall somewhere in between those extremes. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see him play like Elway or Favre, but those great players are very, very, very, very rare in the NFL and the odds are that Cutler is not one of them.

    However, I certainly hope that Cutler defies the odds and becomes the next _____ (insert the name of your favorite top 5 QB of all time in the blank).
    Your correct here

    83 4 great QB's came out Elway, Kelly, Marino , Kubiack 6 #1's and 17 total
    84 Esiason 0/15
    85 cunnigham 0/11
    86 2/15
    87 testverde, gannon 4/18
    88 0/11
    89 aikman, 1/16
    90 George, ware 2/20
    91 Marinovich, Farve 2/12
    92 Maddox, 2/21
    93 Bledso 2/8 this year the 7 round draft started
    94 Dilfer? 2/9
    95 Mcnair, 2/14
    96 0/8
    97 Plummer 1/10
    98 Manning, leaf, greasy, Hasslebeck 2/8
    99 Couch, Mcnabb, Culpepper 5/13
    00 pennington, Brady, 1/12
    01 vick?, Brees 1/11
    02 Carr, Harrington, 3/14
    03 Palmer, Leftwich?,Grossman? 4/13
    04 Rivers, manning, Ben, 4/17 Mauch and BVP count in this 17
    05 Smith?, frye? 3/14

    Marino, Elway, Kelly, Bledso, Mcnair, Manning, Hasslebeck, Farve, Mcnabb, Brady, Palmer, Rivers, Ben. Are the QB's I consider to be true franchise QB's 3.9% of those drafted or 24.4% of the first rounders, not many more than that are great QB's mostly journeymen. 307 drafted 49 in the first round.

    The odds are not great for cutler to become are slim IMHO. Hope he is cause it is gonna set back this program a long time in the search for Elway part deux
