Warner on Cutler

| 10 Comments | No TrackBacks

Kurt Warner appeared on the "Mully and Hanley Show" on WSCR (AM-670) on Monday morning and said when Jay Cutler's mental ability in the new offense equals his physical skills the Bears could have something special.

"Not any guys can throw like he can," Warner said. "If he can mesh those two things together, if he gets confident in what he sees and what he sees the defense doing, where he can let the ball go a little bit quicker, that system and everything comes along, but he just if he just separates himself from the pack if he can do that."

Warner also talked about his brief flirtation with the Bears before signing with the Cardinals after the 2004 season. General manager Jerry Angelo was looking for a backup to Rex Grossman at the time.

"When I came there and they wanted me to come play, they told me that I was going to be the No. 3 quarterback, not that wouldn't be a starter, not that I couldn't move up and beat the other guys out, but that coming in they had a couple guys there in the system. I was going to start as the No. 3 guy. After what I'd been through the last couple of years and what had happened in New York, it was hard to put myself in a situation where it seemed a little more out of my control. So even though I could've competed for it and they told me that, to have to jump a couple guys and make thos strides and earn that position was just a hard call for me to make in my life, so I had to take my skills elsewhere."

Seriously how can Cutler do anything when the tackles just let guys come off the edge untouched? I agree Cutler looked lost but my god the tackles looked like they were on another planet. I just had enough Jerry and Lovie have to go

Maybe Warnre can comment on some games he actually watched on a team he actually follows. He also seems to forget his history with the Rams. He also seems to forget who he played with and the level of talent he had. He seems to forget Martz benched him and the Rams cut him. He has forgoten his hand being broken 3 times. His mediocre play with the Giants in 2004. Warner seems to forget that when he wasn't throwing the ball to Fitgerald, Boldin, Breston, Holt, Bruce, and Faulk that he was not all that special. He also seems to forget that his wife had a personal fued with Martz because of how Warner was being beaten up and not protected. For a guy benched twice with the Rams and once with the Giants he seems to think it sure is easy.

Come out of retirment Kurt and show us all how it is done behind this Bears line with these recievers and backs. Please shock the world.

God Angelo. We probably would have beaten Indy in the Superbowl if we had Kurt Warner as the starter. Letting Kurn Warner go just proves Jerry Angelo does not know how to evaluate talent. We need to FIRE this guy ASAP. He hasn't drafted anyone worth talking about in the last 5 years. Too many 1st, 2nd, 3rd, round busts.

This is good advice for Jay. I think he needs to study the game a bit more maybe watch some more film on his free time. We all know he has talent some quarterbacks only dream of but he needs to get his head sraight too.

Listening to Kurt Warner can only help as he is a good Christian man who has accepted and embraced the love OF Jesus into his life UNLIKE SOME OF YOU DESTINED FOR AN ETERNITY IN HELLFIRE. I KNOW THAT SOME OF YOU LAUGH AN CALL ME CRAZY BUT IN THE END I WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH!!! REPENT YOUR SINS NOW AND SEEK THE RIGHTEOUS OR SUFFER FOR AS FAR AS TIME WILL GO. THE END OF DAYS IS NEAR BUT IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THEN GO ON AND CONTINUE TO MOCK ME BECAUSE YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED. ACCEPT CHRIST AND LIGHT OF LOVE IN YOUR LIFE NOW!

Warner should thank his lucky stars he was deterred from playing in Chicago.... aka where quarterbacks go to die (literally).

dosent look to good, there are a number of q back that move back shot gun, pats, jets, giants, manning about 1/2 the time

I find it amusing to hear Warner's comments. Being a Bears fan here in Arizona, all the talk today on sports radio was if Mike Martz would be fired this week for his stubborness and completely ignoring the running game against a weak Seattle line. Former Pro Bowl Special teams player Ron Wolfe hosts the morning drive here in Phoenix, and suggested Mike Tice is probably ready to punch Martz in the face , ala Buddy Ryan and Kevin Gilbride.Hey, I'm a Bears fan, and they are laughing at the Bears here in AZ.

Bill, I really respect your authority because you have my idol, Jerry Angelo, on speed dial. Jerry really respects your draft recommendations but has lately expressed frustration with some of their play and having to take the fall for them.

As a Christian, you should remember what the Apostle Paul said to Timothy in the Good Book: it's good to drink some wine now and then.

I've discovered MD 20/20 and now Thunderbird. Give them a good spin, Billy, and I'm sure they'll remove a little bit of the uptightness in your life.

Well said Creighton. I like Warner, but him and all these other so called professionals on TV need to put themselves in Cutler's shoes. I'd like to see them do any better right now. Only Jamie Dukes called it right. "Protect your quarterback!!!"

Dear Billy, I am probably joining Kevin in the hellfire with some Maddog 20/20, and while some people may think that you have lost it and might want to see a psychiatrist I totally understand your state of mind. If the Bears offense doesnt start coming together soon I am going to start telling people to burn in hell also. It sounds like the devil may be in Halas hall. Maybe Martz is listening to the voices in his head, "pass", "pass","pass". Whatever is going on there I hope that they are working it out or its going to be a long long season out in the desert with my Moses sandals. Martz! Let my rush game go!!!
