Now onto the most polarizing player in the NFL, Jay Cutler.
Cutler hasn't played in a real NFL football game since the NFC Championship, and we all know what happened there.
Cutler is still facing criticism from NFL fans, players and analysts about his injury and many are still, ridiculously, questioning his toughness.
While I don't see Jay Cutler as the type who is going to give a damn about what ESPN says, I can at least hope he will come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and want to prove everyone wrong.
With that said, Cutler didn't have a bad season last year, not at all.
Cutler threw for 3,274 yards last season, extremely average, and had a 23-16 touchdown-interception ratio, also solid.
Cutler was also sacked 52 times last year, by far the most in the NFL.
Playing behind a terrible offensive line with an offense lacking quality, skilled position players, Cutler still managed an 86.3 passer rating and helped lead the Bears to the NFC title game.
Had Eli Manning, Joe Flacco or Matt Cassel done the same thing, they would be praised.
Instead, Cutler is constantly criticized for not only his lacking toughness, but his play on the field.
His smug remarks to the media and general not-giving-a-damn attitude may warrant a lot of this, but not nearly as much as he gets.
It comes down to the fact that no fans outside, and even a few inside, Chicago really like the quarterback, and that's what drives the media.
Now we've proven Cutler is a good quarterback who had a solid season last year, but what makes him a playmaker?
Simply put, his arm, but we could even say his entire body, makes him a playmaker.
Cutler has the ideal body for an NFL quarterback: athletic, mobile, a cannon for an arm and overall strength.
The problems Cutler has run into are in the decision making aspect of the game, which isn't always necessary for a playmaker.
Cutler's arm gives him the ability to fire a 40-yard dart between two defenders into the hands of wide out.
Cutler's legs allow for him to scramble for extra yards and get away from the defensive linemen who will inevitably be chasing him down every play.
I expect a big year out of Cutler in his second season in the Mike Martz offense, and he should put up better numbers.
