In a surprise move, the Chicago Bears have emerged as the winner of the Jay Cutler sweepstakes, trouncing the thought of several doubters and second-guessers. 

In exchange for Cutler and a third-round draft pick, the Bears will send two first-round picks and QB Kyle Orton to the Denver Broncos.

Since the Bears have a history of poor first-round drafting, this will assure Jerry Angelo's drafting takes a backseat.  Orton will have a good offense to run.  Both sides will win here.
