The Chicago Bears have done just about everything humanly possible to help Jay Cutler succeed over the last two off seasons by giving him the players around him to succeed. They've done this by improving the offensive line and adding two of the best receivers on the roster perhaps in the history of the franchise. Adding a veteran pass receiver in Brandon Marshall, Cutler's all-time favorite target, and drafting Alshon Jeffery gives Cutler two legitimate wide receivers, both with the talent to be number one receivers on any NFL roster. Signing Matt Slauson to be an anchor in pass protection along the interior while drafting Kyle Long to develop in pass protection at right guard will clear Cutler's line of sight so he can scan the field. Now the most important player in the history of the franchise must take the next step on his own.
Jay Cutler is without question the most talented quarterback in the history of the franchise, and arguably the most talented QB in the NFL drafted over the last 10 to 20 years. From a physical standpoint no player possesses a better combination of arm strength, overall athleticism, competitive fire and toughness. Cutler has it all, and enough between the ears to be an elite NFL quarterback capable of carrying his team on his back into the playoffs on an annual basis. Every year we have seen flashes of greatness from Cutler, but every year we've been left wanting more from him. He has yet to put together a complete season that fully encompasses precisely how great he can be as a QB in the NFL.
