Jay Cutler Headed to the Windy City

Well, the saga of Jay Cutler and the Denver Broncos is officially over. Cutler was traded to the Chicago Bears yesterday, a trade Chicago thought was best considering past experiences with quarterbacks.

Not to mention the Broncos were ready to get Cutler out because he simply wanted out of the Mile High City.

So here's the breakdown of the trade between Denver and Chicago.

Denver gets: Kyle Orton, 2009 first-round (No. 18), 2010 first-round, 2009 third-round (No. 84)
Chicago gets: Jay Cutler, 2009 fifth-round (No. 140)

It has been an ongoing feud between Cutler and the Broncos, ever since Shanahan was canned and they hired Josh McDaniels, who attempted to acquire Matt Cassel when he was still with New England.

We know Cutler is good, but his attitude is quite the opposite. He needed to just shut his mouth and go out to play, but he apparently did not like the challenge or the inkling of a thought the team was trying to get someone else.

God forbid Cutler gets hurt and Denver has no backup plan. That's Cutler being Cutler.

Now he is Chicago's problem, or will he be the person to now allow wide receivers to go and not die? As many remember, Carolina Panthers WR Muhsin Muhammad said Chicago is where receivers go to die.

Let's see if Chi-town gets a big name receiver to complement Cutler.
