    Anyone who says that Romo is the biggest part to the mediocre record the last 3 years doesn't understand football. That's not opinion. That's not me being a stan. That is simply fact.

    Some of the most respected minds in the business Cowboys and otherwise could not disagree with you more.

    What you're saying is not smart.

    You're entitled to an opinion. Opinions can be wrong. You're wrong.

    Okay, clearly we aren't going to agree on anything. You think I'm wrong, I think you're wrong.

    That's what good QBs cost, and people complained about Romo's contract? If you're not willing to spend 16-18M a year, then chances are you'll have some scrub/average QB unless they're in their rookie contract.

    If Cutler left the Bears, he would've gotten around 16-18M, which is market value for a QB around his caliber.

    So does McCown stay, or does he go to a team to be a stopgap starter while the rookie QB they draft sits and learns, e.g. OAK, HOU, CLE, MIN etc.?

    He mentioned not too long ago about possibly not playing next season. Who knows.

    Where did I say it was dumb to give either Cutler or Romo these contracts?

    The Bears passing yards record sucks. I already pointed out 5 QBs with Dallas that compiled more yards than that. You do realize Troy Aikman ranks 31st all-time in passing yards. He ranked 19th at the time he retired. Perhaps when Cutler retires he will have compiled a nice team record for the Bears for future QBs to strive for, but breaking a record of around 14,900 passing yards it not that impressive. Consider that over those same 5 seasons Cutler did that, Romo has put up just over 4000 more yards.

    Anyway you cut it, your original statement of Romo accomplishing less than Cutler was just wrong.

    This talk about Cutler not being able to win a Superbowl is just silly.

    Cutler's production is easily comparable to both Joe Flacco and Eli Manning who both won championships in recent years. Not to mention people like Trent Dilfer or Brad Johnson.

    In the last couple years (including this year) he spends half the season on the bench due to injury. Yeah I remember him getting crushed because of the lack of an O-line and inadequate receivers but he has the entire package on offense now to get the job done and he still failed. It's not like he faced a top tier defense with Green Bay. The fact is he was in the confines of his own home stadium with two beast wideouts with a O-line that's playing well and he still had issues scoring on Green Bay for a good stretch of the game.

    Cutler is overrated hot garbage IMO.

    Well, to a certain extent ROMO let his own career tick away.

    As if top quality NFL people have never been wrong about anything...

    Look, this isn't a matter of fact; it's a matter of opinion. I think both contracts are stupid and it's even more stupid to think that Cutler's deal is ridiculous while Romo's is justified.

    That's it. Over.

    With the details coming in this is a good contract for the Bears... 3 year deal that takes Cutler into age 34 with no guarantees after since there was no signing bonus...

    What a waste of money. Cutler's a decent QB. Nothing more.
