Football fans and media are dying to hand this season's award to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning after his inspiring comeback from multiple neck surgeries. But if "valuable" is the key word in the bestowing of this honor, Cutler should win it.

The Bears' eighth win, a decisive 28-10 victory over the division rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, is only a tiny slice of the evidence. Chicago was horrendous last Monday with Cutler out with a concussion, getting crushed in San Francisco, 32-7. Sunday, with Cutler back, the game was nearly as lopsided in the other direction. That's been the case with the Bears since Cutler arrived in 2009.

I still believe Manning wins it, but the author makes great points.

Yeah, hasn't Cutler had a couple horrendous games, throwing like 5 picks? No chance.

He has had arguably had the worst o-line in the league the last few seasons, and until they signed Brandon Marshall, had absolutely no one to throw to.

I agree with Mike....it's Manning.

That being said, he's the most underrated QB in the league by a hundred miles.

Unlike teams like the Packers, 49ers, etc.....if he is out, they never win.

If we end up in the playoffs, there could be an argument for Griff. Peyton has a great defense, we do not. Now if the Broncos end up going deep in the playoffs, it's a done deal...Peyton wins it.

Cutler?

The writer of this story is stretching it.

As a quarterback and only as a quarterback, Cutler gets more flack than he deserves. Because he's a douchebag and that people have schadenfreude against people they think are "soft"( even though most would crumple in pain and sit if they actually had a torn knee ligament), Cutler is treated as an incompetent quarterback. At the same time though, he's not MVP though. The dude is at least definitely above Sanchez tier and Jason Campbell tier.

Most underrated QB in the league? Ehhhh...I guess I can agree with that, but only because there really isn't anyone else. However, Cutler would never win MVP because he's no leader.

I think this post pretty much encapsulates how I feel about Cutler. He is a VERY good QB, and probably very underrated, but I don't think he is MVP this year. Peyton will get a lot of looks, but don't rule out Luck or Griff if either team makes a playoff run. Without Luck, they were 2-14 last year, and now they are poised for the playoffs? Impressive.

Cutler? Hah.

Second coming of Jeff George, with more over-rated-ness.

I dug around a bit in Cutler's stats and discovered a couple of interesting-if a bit odd-things.

First, he has done better in the 4th quarter this season than in the first three quarters.




Secondly, his performance seems to improve dramatically one he's thrown thirty passes. The interesting thing I noticed was the lack of INTs after pass attempt 30-that seems kind of counter-intuitive. One noticeable feature is his passing seems to improve in general the more passes he throws.

It takes him a while to get warmed up, I guess.

I wonder if his 4th qtr stats could also be from defenses tiring out...not saying that it is, but something that popped in my head right away.
Oh there are certainly other contributing factors in any QBs numbers but the improvement in Cutler as the game wears on and he passes more and more at least indicates something about his passing game-how much would require an in-depth play-by-play analysis that I, unfortunately, lack the time-and frankly the interest-to do.

Lanky, I agree he often both looks and acts like a petulant and almost emo kid.

The Bears without him, however, are like the Steelers without Big Ben.
