And is it not coincidence that when searching NFL teams on photos on this site the first picture that comes up is of Jay Cultler in a Bears' practice jersey?
But is Jay Culter going to cause the Bears to become Super Bowl team?
Are they going to play T.O. and the Bills?
And have the Chiefs really found there own chief quarterback?
Being a Jacksonville Jaguars fan for my entire life, I remember the hype of last year. For the first time in almost all my life, Maurice Jones Drew graced the cover of SI, and an article was written about the Jaguars' receivers stepping up and bringing home a Super Bowl trophy for the first time ever. I even remember Peter King claiming that he had thought it might finally be the Jaguars' year.
And that worked out really well didn't it?
So what a makes these teams any different?
Jay Culter, to me, is an overrated quarterback. How many seasons has he made the playoffs? If I'm not mistaken he has not made the playoffs once. Now with a Bears' team whose receivers could possibly be argued as worse than the Jaguars, versus having wide receivers that included Eddie Royal and Brandon Marshall to name a few, how do people expect the Broncos to perform?
I don't find why people think Jay Culter is the savior of the franchise.
The argument of the better defense may be true, but the Bears' defense has dropped in recent years.
Matt Cassel is also overrated. What quarterback wouldn't win in New England? They stockpile every veteran who was ever good and add new fresh talent. Throwing to Randy Moss and Wes Welker is not a very tough thing to do. Even with them, he was not able to reach the playoffs.
So what differs from the Chiefs? Dwayne Bowe is a great receiver, but the Chiefs lose Tony Gonzales...Dwayne Bowe and Larry Johnson are the weapons. So what makes you think that Matt Cassel will do well?
I question taking him in the first place. Tyler Thiegpen played excellently at the end of last year, and although his record fails to show this, he kept the Chiefs' in a lot of close games.
And not much has to be said of T.O..
Yes, he will certainly make an impact, but what makes you feel like T.O .wont destroy the chemistry behind this team as well. And a lack of team chemistry can kill a team.
So my question for you is: Why do we embrace the players that will probably not rectify a franchise?
Because unfortunately there's nothing better to do but hope and pray football season comes faster.
