Cutler vs McCown: I'm Thinking of Cheating on My Quarterback


Following is a letter that we received regarding the quarterback controversy brewing for the Chicago Bears:

Dear Ginny,

I have to admit, I am starting to have thoughts about cheating on my QB. I met this new one that is not as wild, but a lot safer. Dependable. I still have a lot of feelings for my QB, as we have been through a lot together. Some really good times, and some bad ones.

I didn’t even realize that our relationship was unhealthy until I met Josh. We were able to go on just a few dates and I immediately noticed the difference from being with Jay. We just did normal stuff, putt-putt golf one time, dinner and a movie on our other dates. Nice time and nobody got arrested or woke up with a “smoking Jay” tattoo.

What makes this really hard is that they both have great qualities, I wish I could combine them both. Jay takes me to places I’ve never been before as a Bears fan, but Josh pays for everything and never asks to borrow money.

Who am I kidding, I love the bad boy. I am destined for a life of pain. I swore I’d never go through this again after that Rex/Kyle fiasco of 2008 where I ended up picking Kyle because of all those late nights crying over Rex. Then I dumped Kyle just because Jay rode into town on that chopper.

My Mother thinks Josh is the best thing for me. She hates Jay. She says that, but I see her catching peeks at him in the fourth quarter. When Josh is playing she knits or falls asleep.

I have spent so long defending Jay, that it feels like an emotional investment. Josh is much more vanilla, but seems to be genuinely concerned for me.  At least when I get separated from Josh at a party I know that it’s not because he’s dancing topless on the bar.

The dilemma here is that I liked the topless show and so did everyone else at the party, but at what price?

Yours Truly,


What do you think?  What advice would you give “Confused”?  Cutler or McCown? McCown or Cutler?  Let’s see you play the role of Dear Abby (or Dear Ginny in deference to Bears matriarch Virginia McCaskey) and give your two cents on which quarterback is the right one for “Confused.”

    If Cutty will sign a deal for THE RIGHT PRICE I’d say keep him but I’m seriously starting to wonder if he can stay healthy for a full season. He ain’t gettin any younger. Maybe draft a rookie in Round 1 to learn behind McCown for a year & get defensive help from free agency & round 2??

      I agree. Cutler has done a lot for the Bears as far as the team building around the offense to adapt to changes in the NFL. I’d hate to lose him though, and that could be when he takes off like Kurt Warner. He had done very well this season prior to injury, except for the at Lions game. I think what happened for fans is that the injury brought up memories of old Cutler behavior as well as the injuries when we needed him the most. McCown playing well amplifies the issue. It’s the “something else is always better” mentality. Another factor is Marshall. He is an upright citizen now. I’d hate to see him lose Jay as much as he would. Alshon is under B-Marshes wing, too. The ripple effect from not renewing Jay in Chi-town would be catastrophic. Wow, all the more reason to not cheat on our QB. Chime in fellas, what are your thoughts? I love responding to readers, I couldn’t do what I do without you. Comment even if it’s to tell me to go @#%* myself. Show your passion, I live for it.
