It'll keep the Bears competitive instead of beign on the perverbial slide that all teams are on, when they don't refresh some personnel, etc.

Herschel Walker?


Exactly!!! My co-workers thanks me all the time for the 3 Super Bowls that the Vikings have.... Because they basically GAVE the cowboys 3 SB rings w/ that Walker trade! LMAO, bc he's right!

If Cutler doesn't pan out, that would be typical. THe Bears have had more failed players than superstars...but they did get to superbowl recently 8)

I think he'll be fine. He's a Bears fan. Has a good arm and he's young. It will be a new era for the Bears to have a good to great QB.

In a sense, I'd like to see Orton get out of the "Bears' stigma" now, and have a chance to grow w/ another coach, another team, and see if he can build a career yet. I firmly believe in it taking years to develop a calm, experienced QB in the NFL, so here's his chance!

(just pulling for him bc he's a local boy)

He'll do very well. Chicago is my secondary team, pair that with my hatred for Minnesota, Denver, and Tampa this is a win-win-win-win for me.

I disagree with the overpayment thing. Maybe it's because I'm a Saints fan, but I'm more inclined to believe it's because I'm realistic, but draft picks, especially in recent years, have been grossly overrated. The bears have epitomized mediocrity at the QB position for a very long time, and for them to have a chance to get Cutler, whatever price they paid was the right price.

They'll be able to pick up some good core receivers late in the draft, Marques Colston didn't come out until the 7th round, so they're there... With Hester improving at that position they should be a fun team to watch this year.

Just better hope the defense doesn't suck again this year.

As a Vikings fan I think this was a win-win for both teams. Denver is on the decline and with a new coach it's a good time to start rebuilding. They gained a lot of draft picks that will help them reach a more long term goal of building a solid team from the ground up. They also get a serviceable QB for the meantime in Orton. The Bears have been in the shitter as far as QB's go for a long time now and this gives them a great chance at actually building a solid team around one. They also suck ass at drafting quality players, so losing all those picks wasn't a major issue. I think the draft is highly overrated as rookie salaries are absurd. Most teams would be better off trading them away for a quality proven player. Plus many times a proven, reliable player can usually be bought much cheaper through free agency, a commodity many team not over paying rookies can afford to purchase. I think it was an awesome deal for the teams involved; the deal would have been ludicrous for any other team.

As far as giving up draft picks, well, they've been rather useless for the Bears anyway. Angelo is better off giving them up for a Pro Bowler.

I can't believe how excited you guys are for Cutler. Up until last year Jeff George was still shopping his services. They are identical QBs. Big arm, big stats, no heart. Give me Shane Falco.

so im curious... now that the Pats made Cassel a franchise player, does that mean they get cash as well for him? or does that just give him a bigger paycheck from the Chiefs?

He just gets the franchise salary from the Chiefs for one year. They'll have to work out a deal to keep him longer.

Cutler will still only be the 2nd best QB in the North! I think Denver got great value out of the deal since they will have 2 first round picks this year and next year. Chicago's offense is nothing compared to what Cutler had in Denver. Marshall and Royal are easily better than whoever Chicago has.. i really dont know who Chicago's receivers are... Hester (sort of) and who else?
Holy shit we got a psycho in league! Don't piss that kid off!

Great move for Chicago, and I agree, giving up draft choices shouldnt be a problem for the Bears, they draft shit every year.
