Agreed. The only reason to sign Cutler is as a stop gap. So we're not forced to start our young QB.
I hope McNair is truly in win now mode... not willing to accept a losing season in 2014. To me, win now does not start with rookie QB.
That doesn't stop us from drafting a talented QB. It doesn't stop us from drafting Bridgewater. Heck, Bridgewater, Mettenberger, or even David Fales could start if they beat out whoever we sign in training camp, proving that he is ready to start.
I'm not saying that a rookie QB means we won't win in 2014. Luck, RG3, Russell Wilson are examples where that wasn't the case. But signing a veteran QB hedges our bets.
