    Is anyone surprised by the Jay Cutler meltdown in Chicago? It's so funny to hear Bears fans so surprised by 1) the interceptions, 2) the red zone inefficiency, 3) the lack of leadership by Cutler, and 4) the excuses and finger pointing at everyone by Jay Cutler. What were they expecting, seriously?

    FOOLISHNESS. how about we compare Payton Manning's INTs in his first four years to Cutlers… He had twice as many!

    BTW He's pretty good, huh?

  • broncosfaninal

    Manning didn't have twice as many if you look at the number of passing attempts. His INT rate was 3.64% in his first 4 years while Cutler is at 3.465% in his first 4 (so far). Manning also had a .500 record after 4 seasons (and 2 winning seasons) which Cutler would be lucky to see.

    they just noted that stat during the game the other night… count the # of Int's if you want to do the leg work… do 4 & 5 years…

  • WhidbeyBronco

    oh and really? 3.465 v 3.4 kind of makes my point. It takes time in this league to master the qb position… it turned out pretty well for peyton!
