Jay Cutler has been in limbo all week, as you probably have already heard. I was getting a little tired of all this back and forth ranting until today, when word out of New York was that the Jets had expressed interest in Cutler.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm more of a Giants fan than I am a Jets fan, but just the prospect of Cutler coming to New York is wonderful. If the Jets could get a wide receiver (preferably Jeremy Maclin) the Jets would have an above average offense and a great defense.

With Cutler, Maclin, Thomas Jones, Jericho Cotchery, and Leon Washington, "Gang Green" would be a fun team to watch.

Now I know there are skeptics out there. What if he can't take the pressure from the fans and media, and that point should be taken into consideration. Many quarterbacks do not thrive in New York.

But, what if Cutler were to play well in New York. An AFC Championship would certainly be a possibility, and who knows, maybe one or two years down the line a Super Bowl wouldn't be out of the question either.

All I'm saying is that the Jets' quarterback position looks pretty dismal at this point and wasting a draft pick on one would be a waste.

Cutler has proven himself enough in this league to be given the shot to play in New York and if the Jets were to put the right pieces around him, I'm sure he and the Jets would share great success.
