Broncos agree to trade Cutler to Chicago Bears
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)—Jay Cutler got his wish Thursday: a ticket out of Denver. And the Chicago Bears have a franchise quarterback for the first time in decades.
The Broncos on Thursday traded their disgruntled Pro Bowl passer to the Bears, who’ve gone through a bevy of quarterbacks without much success ever since Jim McMahon was calling plays in the 1980s.
The Broncos get quarterback Kyle Orton in return, along with two first-round draft picks and a third-rounder.
You got a real winner. He shoots himself out of Denver, then cries when they decide to trade him.
Hmm... Okay, Mel Kiper, I'll bite. Who are the "real" winners and which of them are being traded this year? We upgraded. That's all you can hope for, dum-bass.
Nice Babblelot, like how we were talking about your bears with who haven't had a decent QB for the past, 4-5 seasons?, now you get this guy. the guy is an awesome player so I hope it works out, as far as him living up to the hype
You're being too generous, there, Monky. Good Rex had a nice 9-game stretch at the beginning of their run to the Super Bowl, but Bad Rex was so awful the second half of the season that he got benched and we didn't know who our starting QB was going to be heading into the playoffs.
Prior to Rex
off the top of my head: Kyle Orton, Kordell Stewart, Jim Miller, Chis Chandler, some dude Harris(?), I must be forgetting about a dozen. You have to go all the way back to 1987
, when Eric Kramer set all the Bears passing records. But even then, his one season was an abberation. He didn't do much after that.
