Summary

While Cutler put up some fairly strong numbers in 2014, the numbers don't tell the full story. Cutler set career-highs in completion percentage (66%) and touchdowns (28), while throwing for the second-most yards of his career (3,812). The full story involves Cutler playing in an offense that preferred "dink-and-dunk" over moving the ball vertically down the field. Yet somehow he led the league in total turnovers, ahead of 2014 first-round pick Blake Bortles of the Jacksonville Jaguars. This is going to be the year when Cutler figures it out, when he figures out how to efficiently manage an offense. Helping him do so will be new head coach John Fox and new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler is going to be asked to do things much differently this season. Gone are the days when he throws the ball 48 times to only five Matt Forte runs. Gone are the days when he freelances at the line of scrimmage. Expect a more level season from Cutler. Behind an improved offensive line and a speedy wide receiver to help spread the field, Cutler should be able to throw for between 3,700-9,000 yards with 25-30 touchdowns and say, 12 interceptions? Though, who really knows when it comes to Cutler, the immensely talented quarterback who everyone loves to hate but secretly love. Don't go out of your way to draft Cutler. If he falls into your lap, just shrug your shoulders and say "DOOONNN'T CAAAARRE," just like Jay would. (May 22)
