Today, I was watching ESPN Around the Horn, eating some Cinnamon Raisin Toast and enjoying life when I see on the bottom of the screen on the ESPN Ticker, the words, "Denver Broncos QB Jay Cutler traded..." and I wonder to myself what this means for the Redskins, seeing as they were expected to come up with the Pro Bowl quarterback.

Instead, I see the Chicago Bears as the team that landed the Pro Bowl quarterback, and I then start to wonder a new though.

"Where was Jerry Angelo in all of this?"

However, I am excited for the new quarterback.  Terms of the deal have yet to be released but we will wait to see how good of a deal this really was.

Either way, the Bears have a Pro Bowl quarterback, and I have just one more thought.

"The Bears have a frickin Pro Bowl quarterback."

Yes, I know it's a weird thought, but it's something I can surely get used to.

Update: The Denver Broncos received Kyle Orton as well as the Bears 2009 and '10 first round picks and the Chicago Bears received a third round pick according to

Another Update: The Bears have also landed Pro Bowl offensive lineman Orlando Pace.
