Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Remember when the Lions got off to a good start this season? Eugh.

Now I don't know who to support this playoff season.

Bears re-sign Cutler through 2020, and also retain Tim Jennings and Matt Slauson for four years each.

I'm irrationally relieved that Emery didn't listen to the talk radio chowderheads and let the best quarterback the team has ever seen walk.

Emery knows that every INT isn't the QB's fault.

I wonder if they can talk McCown into staying.

Good thing about Jennings & Slauson too.

Thereby saving 31 other teams from having to consider Cutler as a viable "option".

Methinks he knew his value to Chicago was greater than his value on the open market.

I would disagree. Cutler was indisputably the #1 quarterback target on the market. The other options for teams looking for a quarterback (Houston and Cleveland, notably, although I expect Houston to draft Bridgewater, and Minnesota, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Arizona and Oakland are all likely to be shoppers) are Vick, Henne, Freeman, possibly Ponder ... and McCown.

That's a murderer's row of dogshit, right there.

That and despite what people think...Cutler is pretty damn talented. There isn't a throw on the field he is incapable of making. Hell he can make better throws than most off of his back foot.

Well, when Cutler starts throwing from his back foot I start reaching for the Tums, because it's frighteningly reminiscent of 1998-99 Brett Favre before he got his mechanics straight, but he does have one of the top three arms in the league -- it's just that he gets dangerously inaccurate beyond 20 yards and he has a little too much of a funslinging mentality.

He's still the best quarterback the Bears have ever had and I'm glad they've locked him up, even though it's effectively a three-year contract.

Sigh. That was very sad and disappointing.

What the hell happened?! We had a 20+ point lead going into the second half and it just evaporated!

Grrrrrrr.

All the same, we had a good season over last year and at least we now have a decent coach and QB. We got a lot further this season than I expected (I predicted 9-7) and, well, we almost won this game but the injuries really cost us.

Actually, like the Oilers in '92, it expanded ... before the bottom fell out.

Tough loss. But give credit to the Colts. Exciting game!
