I got home from work tonight and saw the Cutler trade. I was shocked to see that the Bears were actually able to pull this off, but I'm not writing about the trade itself but the potential to see an amazing rivalry revived with two top tier quarterback's in the NFC north now.

Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler both are very young quarterbacks. Rodgers, in his first year starting, threw for 4,038 yards and 28 touchdowns. No one else last year threw for even close to that in the NFC North.

Cutler has been developing nice over the past three years. People had even said that he had become the next Elway in Denver. This quarterback has an amazing arm. He will also turn those mediocre wide receivers into better ones. Cutler will definitely help in the development of Greg Olsen at tight end, being that position was one of his favorite targets in Denver. He also will be able to take advantage of Devin Hester playing wide receiver because of his quick release and strong arm ability.

The rivalry between these two teams should be amazing to watch for the next decade. Any real football fan should be pleased with seeing this trade happen, just for the fact of seeing two great quarterbacks face off against each other at least twice a year.

With this being said, the Bears should pursue another former Ram this offseason in Torry Holt. He would become a clutch receiver for Cutler. He will also be the No. 1 receiver in Chicago if this were to happen.

Think about it. Tory Holt, Devin Hester, and Greg Olson for Cutler to throw to. Cutler would definitely have the tools set in place to have a great offense if this were to happen.

So Football fans, rejoice. Our decade gets to see a great rivalry with two great quarterbacks.
