Cutler Traded to Bears
The perennial question of who will be the next Bears quarterback has been answered at least for the time being. The Bears, an underdog suitor of Jay Cutler, pulled through in the deal, giving up neckbearded Kyle Orton and a slew of draft picks, including two first-rounders, to bag the pro bowl quarterback.

While the Bears still have lots of offensive problems, mostly pertaining to their receiving corps and the Devin Hester Experiment, Cutler makes the Bears a viable threat in the mediocre NFC North.

Quickly after the Cutler deal was completed, the Bears also picked up Orlando Pace to strengthen their offensive line.

It is clear that the Bears took a gamble on Cutler, mortgaging the future for the present, and the debate will wage on into the future. While the Pace pick-up seems like a no-brainer, it does come as a surprise from the fiscally conservative team that often chooses to build through the draft and not spend the big bucks for talent. This change is character has the Cheeseheads and the Viqueens nervous with the off season action out of Halas Hall. The Vikings especially -- since they chose not to pursue Cutler.
