OK Bears fans, at least it has been announced that the Bears will be players for Jay Cutler after the Broncos announced they will indeed trade the disgruntled signal-caller.
It shocks me a little, I really expected the standard “we’re the Bears, we like our own players, we have Kyle Orton so why would we look at any other quarterback, we don’t make major trades,” etc. So at least we have this going for us.
And obviously, the Broncos are going to hold out for maximum compensation for their Pro Bowl quarterback. This is actually unprecedented, a Pro Bowl quarterback entering his prime being on the block. Question to you fans: do you really think the Bears will be able to land Cutler?
For once I don’t think it will be of the Bears’ doing, but I just don’t think they’re going to be able to get it done, not with the moronic-spending Washington Redskins and Dan Snyder expected to be major players.
Surprised I didn’t think of this before, but for the first time since the Hershel Walker trade, a situation is being compared to the Hershel Walker trade. As a refresher, in 1989 the Minnesota Vikings traded a large part of their 1990 and 1991 drafts, and some picks in 1992, to the Dallas Cowboys for Walker. How did that work out? Walker played 2.5 unremarkable years in Minneapolis while the Cowboys built a dynasty with the picks.
If the Redskins decide to trade 3 first rounders, two seconds and two thirds, gutting their ability to put any talent around their quarterback, would any of you out there want the Bears to beat that deal?
I actually don’t think I would. What do you think?
