I hope it is alright that I posted this here but this is a comment I put up on Mile High Report, I wanted Chicago fans to know that we don't all hate Cutler and we don't all think that you guys will suck just because you have Cutler. Another thing I wanted to add was that my Brother-in-law lives in Minnesota so I pull for you guys to sweep the Viklings every year. He and I have pulled numerous practical jokes on each other over the years and I might post that story here sometime as it has been very entertaining at times. Anyway here is the comment, hopefully it will show you that we Bronco Fans havent all jumped on the Hate Jay bandwagon and are hoping for the Bears failure just because we lost our QB.
Losing Cutler may or may not hurt our ability to win. It is definitely debateable whether or not it was partly Cutlers fault, but we haven’t won much with him at the helm. Say what you want about Cutler, but he is very talented and I think he will be at least decent for Chicago. Sometimes a change is needed, that may be the case for the Broncos as well as Jay. Do you think Joe Montana would have been as successful in a different system? We will never know for sure. Personally I don’t think Cutler would have worked for us under the current coaching regime, whether or not Orton will remains to be seen. I think Orton will be better for us than he was for Chicago, the question I have is how much better? None of us know for sure yet, but I am impressed so far and will give Orton a year or two before I make up my mind.
My personal opinion is that Orton will have success here in Denver and I hope he is VERY successful. We are going to find out over the next couple of seasons. Another question that comes to mind when I consider the Cutler trade is that I seem to remember that Chicago tried to air it out more when Grossman was the man, will they open it up more with Cutler under center? Bronco fans, myself included, have said that Cutler will fail in Chicago because they have no recievers and they are a running team who only uses their QB’s as game mangers not to mention the difference in our O-line vs Chicago’s. Well I think they may make some changes with Cutler under center and you will see a more open attack provided the receivers they have can get the job done.
Now I am not trying to start another Cutler Vs Orton debate but I am saying that I think Orton will benefit from a change in systems and scenery while at the same time, Cutler has better than average chance to be successful in Chicago. Could it be that both sides win in the deal?
