The CTL panel debates where Jay Cutler stands in comparison to another quarterbacks throughout the NFL - 12/27
Earlier this ballgame and they do still have two more things to play for Matt Stafford needs 305 passing yards to become the first quarterback in history -- back to back 5000. Yard seasons I guess that's a big deal Calvin Johnson wants one more record if he gets a hundred yards that's twelve he breaks Michael Irvin to record for yardage in a season. Other than that you know I just don't understand why these guys should show up they obviously don't listen to their coach very much. The one thing I will say I was up there last week I did the -- game of the mood radio national radio broadcast. They got down 213 with about six minutes left in the second quarter and expect them to go home and they didn't -- that they put on a pretty good comeback that they were still -- -- For Calvin Johnson's record you can always tell he was getting close. But they didn't quit well. Sweets I'm not so sure you can say at the Bears get -- a couple scores will go home but I think the Bears can get a couple scores that the Bears starts so slowly that's a concern you at your Bears fan because this is a team that if the Lions are interested. The dangers but they have nothing to lose Stafford was gonna. You know -- probably forty to 45 times they have big play capability. Did Jay Cutler's here you situation like this because you just not had that he just hasn't performed the big game in big moments in the clutch. And if they start as slowly as he has historically started. You know you you give the Lions a reason to hang around at least in the state of reason to stay interested otherwise there's really no excuse for the Bears to lose this game because. They're playing for everything and the Lions have nothing against. Double B well at the Bears have managed to kick to sleeping dog her -- and continue -- run your mouth -- it's it's it's unbelievable to me. Then you move to attempt to provoke the same Lions who. Yeah -- have a couple records of maybe put forward -- pointed out Mets hit they'll have their cars run and during the game ready to. The burn rubber out of Motown and now there probably a little bit ticked off at least some of. Do you think it's Henry Melton speaking up you made the pro ball. They feel a little bit -- know so it's a bit mayfield Toyota Maurice oddities senate before an improbable basically admitting to some that I. I know I know the comedy guy who. -- -- Kind of a goofy guy is that does that mean the Bears have done a lot of talking in December I mean we have seen. Yeah and -- at least Lance Briggs and Brandon Marshall guys that you know should be able to say whatever they wanna say they can back it up. That's for -- by Henry Melton I mean even though made a pro boy should be doing this this have any reflection on Lovie. I I don't think so I don't think glove he's real happy about it we saw DJ our little -- and is not that -- early on in the season. I think -- not -- the Pro -- says more about what a -- the Pro Bowl isn't anything else and in my got guys Jeff Saturday and made the Pro Bowl the week after he got demoted by his own team so. He you know let's let's not get carried away here. Yeah you get back to the Lions a lot of people think the reason that there are not a playoff team themselves as there's no character on this football team so I. I don't know three to listen to the -- get -- top and I couldn't agree that bred more. But I'm not overly concerned the Lions are listening because they just haven't responded to any. Well let you -- mountain called out. The leader. -- Matt Leinart Grail or in the today I came out and said Henry Melton said. Well it doesn't belong in the pro ball right so whom. So if you're gonna call -- -- -- called out there. -- Last guy you should call out lines like -- let me ask you offensively at the preview I said the -- Full size you're available to be the quarterback going forward if your team you can have Matt Stafford you can end Jay Cutler going forward there and -- to take the. Question at Stanford there's a debate anymore out and Jimmy Stafford younger. He's got better numbers he probably guy you who is more quotable I think Dickau has got tremendous upside still you can still work with him a lot of things about his. You don't skill set that excite you coach but. There there's a it's a lower ceiling with him then there's a Stafford. Guys that I've been on record have taken before for four years now there -- things about Jay Cutler that I'm not convinced of fixable and I think each year we've learned that a little bit more. I'm a while about Matt Stafford either and that's some of the worst mechanics I've seen in a long been addressed to and where he goes out of his way to throw side arm and submarine -- doesn't have to do sometimes and so. Is he more coach of -- I don't know I'm not sure what kind of -- patriotic but I think maybe younger not as many. Black marks on the record you probably have to go Stafford. Now I think I think Stanford's gotta be more approachable and -- Jay Cutler who. But it goes through coaches should be you know -- about the Jays and coach what do you mean you just speechless okay when it until you're going forward you can have today. Russell Wilson or Jay Cutler retail although there and I don't and if the link and that want. I'm blessed Russell Wilson's had a great year guys what's what a year Retief does to him next year trust me and I'll figure it out but but I'll -- -- what I would take -- look at RG three both. Oh -- in a heartbeat. Belfour and Turco who intake Russell Wilson I wouldn't know this was new. I don't know what went out Russell Wilson that is fascinating. I know sure I'd I know that the that the league will catch up with them -- -- the playoffs and as a rookie. -- -- -- and I don't think -- great defense I mean a great defense but he's he's you know giving the -- the other is that the great on defense. Great running back -- with many receivers have to work with -- I -- -- that's -- that's true but if he's as good is Golden -- is allowed to push off and I think it. There are things that happened during the course of the football season though I defy anybody to explain to me the Indianapolis Colts on the -- like Andrew Luck a lot. His numbers aren't that good. Things have happened with the Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson had a nice year I'm not taking that away from but you can't coach height. And again once teams see what they're doing get a chance to take some other way I don't think that offensive line is particularly unique -- clogged the passing lanes on them. I just I think Russell Wilson has had his best. You're in the title let's talk about Lovie Smith do you believe that Phil Emery. Already has made his decision but he's looking to see what happens on Sunday in the motor city. Well I think you probably should have but I I don't have any information that he has -- and I think that he's. Probably needs to fire or keep I'm not saying that he decided -- right right well I think I I think if they missed the playoffs and they lose Sunday. And they are prepared and they look like they talk their way into a nine in seven record. Then that I do you think the probably there's the possibility that the Phil Emery does something thought I would think if I had that. Answer yes -- no I would say that his he probably have not made up his mind 100% I think Sunday still matters.
