I'm an SEC guy and I even have to admit I haven't seen nearly enough tape of Jay Cutler to make an honest judgement. I am wondering where all the "Jay Cutler has bad mechanics, Jay Cutler can't win, Jay Cutler doesn't make those around him better" quotes are coming from? Could it be that you simply are reading the "experts" and running with what they have to say?
I saw the Vandy/Tennessee game. Jay Cutler is not Josh McCown
. He has a command of the huddle and field presence that McCown does not have. I saw Cutler bark at his linemen, give instructions to his recievers, not bang his helmet like McCown, and not kiss his coaches butt like McCown. Plus he has a cannon for an arm.
I don't know if Cutler is going to be good. Lets be honest folks, none of us do. But I think its time to take a chance on a quarterback in the first round and if it is Jay Cutler so be it.
