It is no secret that Jay Cutler could be traded here in the weeks leading up to the NFL draft. I will have my thoughts on what the Bears should do with the draft in the next few weeks. But for now, all I can say is that if Jerry Angelo does not at least make a legitimate attempt to get Jay Cutler, then he should be fired without question. This guy is the real deal. As I mentioned before, I am a big Kyle Orton fan and I believe he will be good if given the help on offense such as wide receivers and an an offensive line that can protect him.
But if all of a sudden, a Pro Bowl quarterback becomes available, you go for it. If Drew Brees starts complaining that he wants to be traded, you at least try to see if a deal is possible. The same goes for Cutler. As much as I love Orton, he is not Jay Cutler. Cutler is more mobile and he can throw a deep ball more accurately. If the Bears can get this guy, he will still need the players around him. He is going to need a better line as well as wide receivers who can actually catch the ball.
Knowing Jerry Angelo though, this seems like a long shot. He said in his press conference a couple days after the regular season ended that to build an offense along with a winning team, it starts with the quarterback. “You win because of the quarterback” he said that day. So what does he do? He goes out and gets Brett Basanez. Yeah. Brett fucking Basanez. That guy has Pro Bowl potential. I mean, he was on the practice squad of a team for a couple years. That guy can be great one day. Oh fuck it. This sucks.
Jerry Angelo, you dip shit, pick up the damn phone, call the Broncos and see what they want for this guy. Just try to make a serious attempt. That is all we fans ask for. Please.
