Well said. Numbers never lie... when you read the numbers behind the numbers.

i wouldn't mind cutler his certainly not my first option but i don't think his has bad as some suggest
It's NEVER a great year for QBs when you draft 19+. Why doesn't anyone get that? The future is NOT Jay Cutler.
"Why don't we just draft Russell Wilson, the Seahawks did it".
31 teams try to draft that 3rd+ round QB of the future EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Most end up like Mike Glennon (poor at best).
2011 was a year that was supposed to have solid QBs too, the only team it worked out for was #1 pick - Cam Newton. Come the start of 2014 I imagine picks #10 and #12 are jobless while #8 pick is given 1 final chance which he ultimately fails at setting these franchises back 3-4 years each. Oh yeah and one of them will have wasted arguably
the greatest RB in NFL history doing so.
