A good read for Cutler fans.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Point taken...my only fear (and I think this is a valid point) is that we never really have seen him perform under adversity. I saw a couple of USC games and sure...Leinart looked great.....he also looked relaxed and it seemed ...

Point taken...my only fear (and I think this is a valid point) is that we never really have seen him perform under adversity. I saw a couple of USC games and sure...Leinart looked great.....he also looked relaxed and it seemed to me that he almost always had time to make good throws. Now, even AB made some spectacular throws when he had ample time to do it. You also make another point that scares me. He is used to winning. That's great. This is New Orleans. Winning has always been rather difficult for us. How will he react to....losing? Or at least struggling to win? Cutler has been there and done that. Its like Manning...had he played on a winning squad you know Archie would have retired with rings. Truth is....he had garbage. And he did such a good job with garbage that he won MVP in '77. I just feel that Cutler is of the same mold. The way I see it, with that kind of fierce determination, if you gave Cutler a decent squad...how well could he be? How much more accurate could he be with an effective line? We honestly don't know either way do we? But me personally, I would rather bank on the guy that can find the diamond in the rough than the guy that was fed the silver spoon. (I know you understand the metaphor.)

Either way....this is all about one thing...the Saints! Regardless of what happens...I will still be the only (or at least one of the very few) people in this city (Miami) wearing black and gold in a sea of orange and teal. ;0)

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: A good read for Cutler fans.

I'll make that wager. Whatever you want. And don't give me this comparable teams BS, cause both are being picked at the top of the draft, which generally means both will go to sucky teams
Comparable was for the first two years as a starter. Lord knows that San Fran and Houstan lack alot less of an offensive line than New Orleans or the Jets Do. Thats why I threw that in. And neither of those two teams are going to fill the holes immediatly.

Now when we talk career, how do we rate them pure stats, wins, or what? I'd rater look to the stats, cause unfortunatly wins are a team effort.

And I'll let you pick the wager and lets keep it reasonable so no tax laws get violated

But name the price.

Ticket to a future Saints game? I like that. I definitely can get down with that. Seems fair since we are all Saints fans. But, they have to be good tickets, not the nose bleed terrace where you get vertigo from looking down the steps. At least Club, Plaza, or Loge level. That's what, $140 max? Again, seems fair to me. We can do it for every two years. So we will be judging both in two year intervals. I think stats is a fair enough judge cause that is an individual goal, as opposed to wins which is more a team goal. And if either wins rookie of the year, I thinkt hey hands down win the first two years. Does that sound fair to all who are betting?

Agreed. on my part. Nothing get the blood flowing like off season wagering.

Only one caviat. They must see playing time in the same season. Can't be riding pine for two years while ones taking his lumps. (Ah hell screw it let em play)

Your on

Okay, we'll do this. For a season to count, either has to play a minimum of 8 games. That allows for squirrely things like injuries. I think half a season is a fair enough barometer to where you could prorate the remainder of the season if they get hurt or something. If they get benched cause they suck, no prorating. Only in the case of an injury. And if the injury is career ending, the guy who's player got hurt has to buy tickets for that interval, and then the bet is over at that point. Hopefully they both get significant playing time next year.
