These are the reasons why I think Cutler will be good for the Browns.
1.) He wants to win. He is a winner. All those people who keep talking about his record. Well he never had a defense to speak of. He had to throw and score every time he had the ball. His defense did not produce any turn overs. The man still threw and threw and tried to win. He will put his team on his shoulders and drive them to win. There are only four QBs that I know of in the current NFL. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Kurt Warner (recently) and Drew Brees who do this consistently. All of them have at least eight years in the NFL. And of that Cutler and Brees are the two guys without defense.
2.) To all those people who call him a cry baby. Lets put it this way. The man isn't paid as much as Brady Quinn is being paid. All he wants is some loyalty. I don'tknow if anybody who writes about how he is a unprofessional yadayada yada blah blah blah... knows anything about team sports(for that sake team anything...). If people in your group, team, or committee don't believe in you, that you are the guy, it is hard to win, hard to just move forward. Not only you are playing against your opponents but also your coach. Cause he doesn't believe in you. Money cant buy security. It has to be as a team you win together or die together. Cutler brings that to the team to. If you do research on his work ethic you will find his team mates saying he is comes ready everyday. And you will also hear about his film study methods. The man stabs himself with needles during each game during after the first quarter. You want more proof that he is a man's man?
3.) Brady Quinn was not drafted by the so many other teams who needed a QB because he is an average QB at the best. He threw for 500 yards against army and navy. He never won a big game. He went to three bowl games and got spanked in all of them. (I will give him the close game against USC). Quinn was over hyped by ESPN and Charlie Weis. The Browns were stupid to trade up to get him. Don't you think there is a reason why DA started all those times. If Quinn was so good in practice he would have been starting. Romeo finally threw him in after the Browns season became a disaster, and oh he hurt his pinky. Oh please, Brett Favre played with a broken thumb for an entire season. I like to see him gone. And with him gone we have some room to pay for a decent receiver. He can keep his EAS commercial.
4.) Mangini not liking Brett Favre, and Cutler being a Favre hence Mangini not going to like him...blah blah blah...Mangini is a smart coach. Cutler and Mangini like to win, Mangini doesn't have to coddle his QB, just be a straight shooter. That's all Cutler wants. (Mangini named his son after Favre, so much for the Favre feud huh). Cutler doesn't have to be a gunslinger when he doesn't have the pressure to score every time he touches the ball. He plays smart. For a 25-year-old he is a beast.
5.) We finally get a franchise QB with a swagger. When did we last have one? Somebody please remind me. He can become a QB that makes defense queasy. Give him a half way decent run game and a defense that is at least average and watch Cutler work magic. (Did anybody see his rockets when he played against the Jets in the rain?).
6.) And we can get a Jersey that we can proudly wear for about 10 years.
