Saw him play a bunch of times the last 3 years. Probably 15-20.Gunslinger. Leader. Huge arm, good wheels. Tough.His only issues will be: Stop throwing off of his back footRealize that he doesn't have to make EVERY play like he did at Vandy.This guy can put a team on his shoulders.Will he make it as a starter? Who knows.Will I be surprised at all if one day he's mentioned with the best to play QB? Not in the least.

 
The only game I watched him play was against LSU and he looked horrible. I'm sure a lot had to do with him being on his tail all day. But I saw twice where he had a guy wide open deep and missed him badly. From what I'm hearing about this guy, it must have just been a really bad game for him.

Favre?

I said in another thread, dont feel like searching for it:Culter will either be the next Brett Favre or the next Mike McMahon. Hes got all the right skills, a great attitude, and is a natural leader, but my biggest concern is him playing within a system, instead of having to walk on water to keep Vandy in the game.

Im leaning towards the Favre path.

 
Saw him play 5 or 6 times this year. Great movement in the pocket and he was the Vanderbilt offense. One game that was interesting to watch was LSU. HC for LSU made his whole game plan to stop Cutler and it worked, probably his worse game of the year.One thing that worries me is his attitude. He seems very cocky.

FWIW, Chris Simms was on the radio after the Rose Bowl saying if he was a GM knowing what he knows of QBs, he'd take Cutler over Leinart. He's a real deal guy. Expect his stock to continue to sky rocket.J

 
I saw him in person versus the Gators and he tore that defense up. He had a real good long ball in that particular game.

 
My main concern is before the draft (and now) people knocked Peyton for never winning the big game. Has Cutler ever BEEN in a big game?

Bowl game no, but played at Athens, Knoxville, The Swamp, etc many times.Against Florida, he completed 28-42 for 361 yards and four scores in the double overtime thriller as he rallied the Commodores to 21 fourth quarter points to tie the game at 35-35 with just 54 seconds left to play.

In his last college game at UT he was 27-39 for 315 yards, 3 TDs, the last coming with just 1:11 remaining in the game to give the Commodores their first win over the Vols since 1982.

2005 SEC Player of the Year (SEC’s leader in touchdown passes with 21 and total offense with 3,288 yards, 3,073 passing yards)

2005 SEC Offensive Player of the Year

A finalist for the Unitas Golden Arm Award

He is also playing in the Senior Bowl on Jan 28th.

Hi Az,Total non factor in my opinion (just like it was for Manning not beating Florida) Cutler beat a Tennessee team in front of 110,000 in Knoxville to knock them out of a bowl game. That was a huge game for him. He'll be fine on the "big game" front.

Works for me. Since I've never watched him, I just want to make sure any preconceived notions I have of this guy are based on fact since my two favorite teams are being discussed as possible destinations (Cards, Lions).

Was this really a non-factor?

Has Vanderbilt ever been in a big game?? The Vandy seniors made their last game of the season (at Tennessee) a huge game in their own minds. Cutler was incredible and led them to a win with a very Farve-like, come-from-behind final drive, which ended when on the run with people in his face, he rifled the ball into the smallest of openings for the game winning TD. It was more than just that drive too. He was 27-39-315-3tds-0picks-- and he was under constant pressure the whole game. It's not the only time he played so well. He was already being discussed as a 1st rounder, and a couple anonymous sources, a scout and a team personnel director, had already been quoted claiming Cutler > Leinart. Since this game the hype has really been piling up though.

I suppose that depends on what it's factoring in. ;) Heismann voting? Sure.

Success in the NFL - obviously not.

One thing that worries me is his attitude. He seems very cocky.
So is Ben Roethlisberger, Favre, Manning, Elway... basically any successful leader, which is what I want my QB to be. Maybe he overdoes it, I really don't know, but there's a world of difference between super-confident and cocky. From what I hear, he's more of the former.

 
The few times Ive seen Cutler in person around Vandy and being interviewed on local news, Ive never seen anything that would lead me to believe hes terribly cocky or had a bad attitude.

 
I've watched him on the telly in a couple of games this year. He has all the tools, and for pete's sake, he played at Vanderbilt. They were on the cusp of bowl eligibility all season, which is remarkable for the only private school in the SEC. He could be a steal in the draft, but my sense is he goes earlier than people may expect at today's date.

Please rate his cockiness on a 1-10 scale.1(Kurt Warner).........10(JP Losman)

Hes pretty much a consensus 1st rounder right now...how far up in the 1st do you see him going?

4 or 5. He has some of the brashness youd expect from any 22-23 year old, but nothing I see as debilitating. Hes always been quick to deflect success from himself to his teammates.

Mid - first. Miami seems to be a popular choice in many mocks.

That would be a great place for him, almost the perfect scenario...
