You might vaguely recall the Chicago Bears once mortgaged their future to land a temperamental young quarterback named Jay Cutler. The year was 2009, and then-Bears general manager Jerry Angelo was beaming after pulling the trigger on a trade that sent his starting quarterback (Kyle Orton) and three draft picks, including two first-rounders, to Denver to acquire a true franchise cornerstone. Fast forward five years: Angelo is no longer with the team, fired in 2012 after a decadelong run as GM. Cutler remains entrenched and recently signed a new deal that could keep him in Chicago through the 2020 season. Time seems to have changed Angelo's feelings on the quarterback. In a write-up on TheSidelineView.com, Angelo wrote candidly about perceived deficiencies in Cutler's game.
