To keep or not to keep Cutler, that is the question. This has been the most hotly debated issue of the season for Bears fans. No matter who you talk to you can’t get everyone to agree on whether Cutler should stay or if he should get traded or cut. The debates about Cutler can cause endless arguments as fans are very passionate about what he has done for the team and his future.
Cutler has not been the quarterback that many thought he would be. He does make mistakes at critical times, has been injured often and seems to struggle at times. On the flip side, he has had some stellar wins for the Bears, made some great plays and has done some good things.
But some people will argue (and it’s a good argument) that Cutler has had to endure so much while he was with the Bears. Some of what he had to go through, that he couldn’t control, included changes in the offensive line and changes at offensive coordinator spot. He also didn’t have solid wide receivers and had to go through head coaching changes.
So perhaps some of what Cutler wasn’t able to do was on him and not on him. Either way, Cutler’s tenure in Chicago was not a productive one and the Bears are not much better off.
The Bears have been silent regarding what they are plan to do with Cutler this offseason. There are many that feel that they are going to try to trade him and get some draft picks. Others feel that they could retain him for another season, draft a future starter and let this starter develop behind him.
Consider what the Bears are going to do with Cutler undecided. It might be beneficial to see him back for one more season teaching a younger quarterback the ropes. But if they can trade him and get some additional draft picks that might be much better. Consider this a huge flash point for the Bears this off-season.
