Glad to read Cutler is in the final year of his contract. So happy we didn't give up two 1st-rounders and a bunch of cash to get him a few years back.

LOL! Good luck with the Bears. They're shreds of where they were five years ago.

Terrible hire. He'll be out in a year. The fact that Sid loves him should tell you all you need to know.

Now if he can talk Mike Grant into the offensive coordinator position all will be well in Sid's world. It just might happen.

MEMO to Vikes......there are at least six QBs up in Canada who would be a significant upgrade over Ponder. Now somebody point Spielman to the North and tell him to go get one.
