I say yes, the Bears got crushed in the Cutler-for-Orton trade. I say this because this trade was a deal for a quarterback that is leading a 4-5 team and a quarterback that is leading a 6-3 team.

I say this because Jay Cutler has thrown 17 interceptions while Kyle Orton has been playing like a decent quarterback, and leading his team like a QB should.

Last week against the 49ers on the 10 yard line for the game winning play, Cutler reminded me of a panicking eighth grader on a Madden game.

While having a clear run to the endzone he throws up a duck that gets picked. Not good.

While the Broncos have not been playing there best football as of late, the Broncos definitely got the best out of that trade.
