Disclosure: Long-time Bears fan here. Putting on my flame suit now, but I spend a fair amount of time on chat boards for the Bears and the NFL at large, and I'm astounded how much negativity is directed towards this guy. Most recent example. Cutler was asked if he'd like to have Terrell Owens on the Bears. He said Owens is good but he doesn't think he'd be a fit. He also said he liked the WRs they have and is looking forward to working with them. Immediately the comments are that Cutler is naive, stupid, etc. when just a few months ago he was criticized for doing the exact thing (throwing his WRs under the bus in public) that he was expected to do now. Also: - They say he's a hot-head, arrogant and demanding. Really? Or does he just want to win and expect his teammates to do likewise. - They say he's stupid. Interesting, considering the first time he and Mike Martz met before Martz' hiring the first thing they did was find a chalkboard and work on plays. Oh by the way Martz -- widely considered one of the smartest coaches of the modern era -- categorized Cutler's intelligence as "intimidating." - They say he's selfish. Yet not once last year did he complain publicly when the worst OL in the league had him running for his life (when he wasn't rushing throws and/or getting hit). - They say he's a loser. Chrissakes he played for freakin Vanderbilt. Losing is just part of the deal there. Denver's D was atrocious and Chicago's was no better. I personally think the Bears would not have won more than 3 games last year without him. OK, I'll admit, I cursed him out loud several times last season for his ridiculous interceptions, way too often in the red zone. But I also saw him make throws I haven't seen any Chicago QB make my whole life and probably not more than 1 or 2 other QBs in the league today could make. My theory is that Chicago fans hate him because we he cost us two 1st round drafts (which our moron GM would have wasted anyway), and he didn't singlehandedly take us to the SuperBowl (irrespective of a terrible OL, green as grass WRs and a moron of an offensive coordinator); Denver fans hate him cause... well, I don't know why. And the rest of the haters are scared poopieless at what he could do in this league if he ever got his mind right and had a good team around him. It seems like Cutler is the 3rd most hated QB in the league -- behind only JaMarcus Russell and Mike Vick -- and for the life of me I don't know why. Discuss.
