An ESPN banner this morning – which lingered for a good long while on screen – hyped Brandon Marshall’s statement that his QB, Jay Cutler, could be MVP this season.
I remain amazed at the perception of Cutler – an eight year veteran who has won exactly one playoff game in his career and whose performance is the very definition of mediocre. And the Bears passing attack last year did notably better when the legendary Josh McCown was at the helm. McCown signed with the Bucs in the off-season, his eighth NFL team. He also made a pit-stop in 2010 with the Hartford Colonials. Oh – you didn’t know they were an NFL team?
The Cutler Cult remains one of the most baffling in pro sports.
