Expensive, but Quality Costs

The deal is a risky one. But it also was an aggressive move that could pay off in glory.

Bearing Holiday Gifts

Chicago benefits from Denver's dysfunctional combination of ego, immaturity and miscommunication.

This trade officially gives the Bears their first true franchise quarterback in the last two or three decades.

Cutler Not A Cure-All

Cutler will need receivers who are reasonably quick, with good hands, who run precise routes.

Helps More Than Hurts

This is one of those trades that will take five years to know who got the better end of the deal.

Cutler Not a Good Fit

Based on the personnel he'll have around him in Chicago Cutler would have done better staying put.

Redskins, Like Every Team, Should Consider Cutler

If Zorn is on board with the decision to pursue Cutler then he either feels that Cutler is special, Campbell is not, or both.

Better Catch Cutler

If the Redskins weren't all-in on the Cutler chase before, they need to be that way now.

A Different Path

At this point Cutler is a better quarterback than Jason Campbell, but this isn't about superstar talent.

Snyder Likes Roller Coasters

It seems like a splashy move for Washington to make. But is it prudent? Well, Snyder has an affinity for roller coaster rides.

Several teams will be looking to pick up the Broncos quarterback, chief among them, the Redskins and New York Jets

Avoid the Temptation!

Giving up several top draft picks for a player statistically similar to the one you already have doesn't make a lot of sense.

April 2 Winner: JHARRINGTON1

The worst draft pick ever was Rocky Thompson, a wide receiver from Bermuda by way of West Texas A&M, drafted number one (18th overall) by the New York Giants in 1971.

April 1 Winner: wprioleau

I've heard that Al leaves more football knowledge in the "bowl" than most folks will ever know, but when a man drafts a kicker in the first round of the draft at 17 it's time to put his wheelchair on cruise and point him in the direction of the bright warm light.

Hindsight Is 20/20, Except for Janikowski

I believe the worst offensive pick -- at least in modern football times -- occurred when the Oakland Raiders selected kicker Sebastian Janikowski from Florida State with the 17th pick of the 2000 draft.

Schlichter Gelded the Colts

Schlichter not only was a bust, he busted up the Baltimore Colts

An All-Bust Offense

Since the "Worst Draft Pick Ever" is a no-brainer (Hello, Mr. Leaf!), I thought I'd put together an All-Bust Offense.

Can it be Elway?

Elway went on to be one of the five greatest quarterbacks (perhaps players) in the history of the sport. The Colts? Be them in Baltimore or Indianapolis, they never won more than nine games in a season during Elway's career (1983-1998).

The Mandarich Misstep

Taken behind Troy Aikman, and sandwiched in between three Hall of Fame players, there's no doubt that it was this MSU mammoth worst pick in draft history.

Leaf Never Turned It Around

Ryan Leaf was so unpleasant he made Heath Shuler seem positively Joe Montana-like.
