Jay Cutler sucks.

Chris Cook's picture

Cutler (this year) has been doing as well or better than Rodgers with a much inferior offensive line. Cutler rules, TPacker sucks.

Nothing like a bears fan to perpetuate a mildly personal attack on someone behaving in a light hearted manner. Sir, I believe you and your effective (as of only recently) qb should lighten up... I always did thing "big boi" Culter was a mopey fellow.

And I'll admit that Rodgers has had his share of problems this year. And I'll also give you that he has had to endure poor offensive line play that is true but I what I never said was that Rodgers was currently playing better than Cutler. For all you know is that I think they both suck. What I do know is that Rodgers, although playing "poorly" as of the moment, has a much higher ceiling than that of Mr. Cutler. It could be said that Cutler is only a big armed bimbo who has had only two good games. Which is entirely accurate. I respect your loyality to your team, but I find it is extremely misguided to assert (especially at this point in their careers) that Cutler is the superior quarterback. His potential is simply not there.

TPacker's picture

And your assertion of his "much" poorer offensive line play is bull in and of itself. Although Rodgers has gotten sacked 3 times this year as compared to Cutler's 5, his blockers have struggled in run blocking. And although you are right in asserting that offensive line play has a fairly large impact on QB performance, how would you explain Rodgers' far more impressive performance last year while standing behind what was unanimously declared the worst O-line in the league? The answer comes in his superiority, talent, and accuracy that helped him out preform almost every qb in the league (sans Drew Brees) as well as our good friend Jay.

I respect your opinion but I would make one slight correction. I believe that the male version of the term "bimbo" is actually "himbo" or alternatively "bob-bo". As to say Jay Cutler is a himbo or Jay Cutler is a bob-bo. Other than that small correction, I totally agree with you.

TPacker's picture

Yeah, next time before launching a tirade I should check the genders of my insults. haha.

Big game. Winning this one I think will give us a huge momentum boost. Man, I want to see this series evened up. 9 wins away from the head to head lead. Let's get one Monday, boys!

Chris Cook's picture

100% correct, this game is HUGE for both teams. But your Packers team is already expected to go to Superbowl and would certainly rebound if they lose. The Bears are not expected to go anywhere this year and may not rebound from a crushing loss to the Packers. This should be a great game, but I think the Bears have more to lose and I am hoping they pull this one off at home so they can split with the Packers this year. Here's hoping that neither team suffers any serious injuries. GO BEARS!!!

Bears are something like 5/25 on 3rd down conversions, def. going to lose to the Packers if that stays the same.
