The Jay Cutler drama is now over. Denver has traded Cutler to the Chicago Bears for Kyle Orton, two first-round draft picks and a third-round pick.

If you're a Bears' fan you've got to be happy that your team acquired an excellent quarterback. However, if anybody says the Bears' offense is on par with the Broncos', that person needs to see a psychologist.

As for Broncos' fans, it's going to be tough not watching the same high-octane offense they have had the last two years. Kyle Orton is a serviceable backup and Chris Simms has seen his fair share of NFL action, but it won't equate to the level Cutler brought.

But as most smart fans know, the NFL is about building for the future. Two first-round draft picks for Denver's organization will work wonders down the road. Just watch.
