  • Cutler Hasn't Performed Up To Expectations In Chicago

    The article briefly compares Orton and Cutler thus far.

    "Really embarrassing" indeed!

    BEREA —

    This much was clear: Denver was never going to be the same without Jay Cutler.

    Who knew different would be better with Kyle Orton?

    After Cutler pouted his way out of Colorado, he was supposed to be the reason the Chicago Bears broke through to Super Bowl contention. Instead, the Bears are licking their wounds from a 45-10 loss to Cincinnati as they await a game Sunday against Cleveland.

    Orton was supposed to be a joke, a liability who would make it unlikely for Denver to match last year’s 8-8.

    Instead, his Broncos ride into Baltimore with a 6-0 record. Bears fans thought it was automatic that Cutler would elevate them, yet they are 3-3.

    Through six games, Orton leads Cutler:

    • 1,465 to 1,452 in passing yards.

    • 7.55 to 6.95 in yards per attempt.

    • 100.1 to 82.9 in passer rating.

    The Browns, however, are in no position to assume an upper hand against any quarterback, least of all Cutler.

    As a Bronco last Nov. 6, Cutler came to Cleveland for a Thursday night game. The Browns were out of touch with the playoff race at 3-5, but energized by the fact Brady Quinn was making his first NFL start.

    In retrospect, it was by far Quinn’s finest hour as a pro. He passed for 239 yards and two touchdowns. With help from Joshua Cribbs (three carries, 48 yards) and Kellen Winslow Jr. (10 catches, 111 yards), he had the Browns leading 30-27 in a shootout, based on a 78-yard touchdown drive that ended with five minutes left.

    Cutler had a career game of his own. He answered Quinn’s drive with an 80-yarder, part of his 447 yards passing and three touchdowns.

    It amounted to Cutler’s last hurrah in the Rockies. Denver lost four of its last seven games. Head Coach Mike Shanahan was fired. Cutler was steamed with new Head Coach Josh McDaniels over issues that got him traded out.

    Now, Cutler is being looked at as a 26-year-old prima donna whose ability to win isn’t nearly as big as his ego or arm.

    Sunday’s loss may have humbled him a bit. The Bears trailed, 28-0, before he threw a late touchdown pass to Devin Hester.

    “It's really embarrassing,” said Cutler, who threw three interceptions in the game and now has 10 on the season.

      Goes to show just what many of us have been saying on these boards for a while about Cutler. I wonder how Bear fans are taking this?

        For some stange reason I like these Cutler bashing articles. I don't think he feels like a fool however after the contract he just signed. I am sure he would have had to do a whole lot better than 3-2 (before the last embarasment) to get a contract like that.

        In response to who thought that Orton might do better in Denver, I think McDaniels did. In the Denver fanbase, I do think there are several that are not that surprised that Jay plays amazing one week and like s... the next. There are very good reasons that his winning streaks are so short.

            As much as I love Cutler bashing, and believe me I do, please move the thread to another forum section. He's not a bronco anymore, and now he's an enemy.

              Oh I agree he's getting paid - but you don't think his is looking to the 6&0 Bronco's and re-thinking the entire situation?

              I would venture he would still be here if he had this team last year - who's gonna jump off the boat on a team playing well enough to make a run at it .

              Thus my point - Personally I'm thinking he's like "jeeeeeeeeeeez", lol

              I love it

                He is still somewhat connected to the Broncos. Our 1st round pick next year depends on his/Bears performance this season.

                  I have been preaching this all along. He is a clown, a prick, and is very overrated and I am 100% glad he is gone.

                  Hope Bears fans are happy with thier savior, I projected 20+ INT's this year, I will up that to 25+. He is the worse game manager and leader in the league and he DOES NOT deserve to be paid like Peyton Manning or Tom Brady!

                    Because the expectations for Jay in Chicago were 16-0 and a super bowl trophy?

                      Screw Jay.

                      Anyone else thinking he was sitting on the sideline in Cincy thinking what would have been for him in Denver?

                        Actually..... :doh:

                        There were a few "experts" saying that the Bears would be in the SB. I didn't buy it. Still don't.

                        More to the point, what does it matter if he isn't living up to their lofty expectations? I'd rather have a guy like Orton, for whom the "experts" had ZERO expectations, who is winning consistently. I couldn't possibly care less about Cutler, the Bears, Chicago, etc.

                          Basically, yeah. That was the general expectation.

                          Jay Cutler's phenomenal, downright freakish, physical abilities were supposed to allow Ron Turner (the chuckleheaded OC of the Bears) to finally "open up his playbook all the way" and start challenging Defenses vertically. His awesome scrambling talents were supposed to take all pressure off of a truly horrid Bears o-line. His unmatched arm strength and pinpoint accuracy deep was supposed to transform a mediocre WR corps into an All-Pro Bowl lineup. His truly unique skill of being able to pass off of his back foot while running full speed was supposed to defeat any possible blitz. His incredible leadership abilities were supposed to lift the play of the entire Offense, the spillover affect giving the struggling Defense a much needed break.

                          Now however, it's the o-line can't block so Jay's constantly running for his life. None of the receivers can catch anything and it's their fault that Jay's thrown so many picks. The entire coaching staff are drooling buffoons who all need to be fired right now. Matt Forte isn't supporting Jay due to his inability to run for 10 yards per carry. The Defense is allowing opponents to run up the score before Jay has a chance to do anything.

                          It's everybody else's fault. None of the blame is to be assigned to Jay...

                            The funny thing with Cutler is Chicago brought him in to win games but he has never been a winner. Its all about reading the label before you buy into the hype.

                              Does cutler look like he is getting really fat???
                              anyway, what did chicago expect out of cutler? The most they should have expected out of cutler is an 8-8 record. That's all he has ever done.
                              If you expect a SB out of cutler, then you should expect Orton to be placed in the hall of fame. right...
