I’ll still take Alex Smith over Jay Cutler all day

New, comments

The Chicago Bears have reportedly made Jay Cutler available in a trade. ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reports:

Teams around the league are now aware of Cutler's availability while the Bears attempt to garner draft compensation for their eight-year starter, and conversations are expected to heat up during next week's NFL scouting combine.

There was at one point, I’m sure, a debate over Alex Smith and Jay Cutler. I hope history remembers that I was on the side of Alex Smith, who is a better quarterback than Jay Cutler.

Cutler has started all 16 games just three times in his career. In those three seasons, he has thrown 26, 18 and 14 interceptions. Could you imagine cheering for a team that threw 26 interceptions? I mean ...

Cutler has a big arm so someone was always falling in love with him. I’m not writing this to sing Alex’s praises, although he is better than Cutler. I’m writing this to remind you that when Jay Cutler is your quarterback, you will lose.
