Much complaining today in the local papers today about Jay Cutler going to play for the Chicago Bears instead of coming here to the Vikings. As a Packers fan I don't have a dog in this fight, so I can be somewhat objective about this. While I understand why Vikings fans are not enamored with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson as potential quarterbacks, I don't think Cutler was the droid you were looking for.
The guy had a big year statistically last year, but he also got his coach fired in Denver and then whined when the new coach wanted to look at someone else. As a longtime observer of prima donna quarterbacks, I think that the Bears wildly overpaid for a guy who hasn't really proven much of anything. Cutler played his college ball at Vanderbilt, the perennial footwipe of the SEC, and he wasn't any more successful in Denver than Jake Plummer was. And given the dismal history of quarterbacking in Chicago, I think Cutler is likely to be just the latest in a long line of disappointing Bears quarterbacks. And considering the aging defense and the lack of receivers in Chicago, I'd guess that the Bears are more likely to finish last than first in the division.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that Aaron Rodgers is still the best quarterback in the division, although we'll have to see what happens in Detroit. Meanwhile, there are still candidates out there for you, Vikings fans!
