    Thats what Im hoping a bit. I know that shitty contract kind of put the Bears in a hole, but this may be the perfect opportunity to shop him as well.

    Ive historically been an advocate of keeping Cutler, because they are not going to get anything better. The reasoning for that, however, is not because of his talents, but the talents around him. Asssuming Marshall is gone, and this is Forte's last year, I say cut your losses and shop him.

    It's time to cut him and swallow the medicine. This coaching staff and front office are doomed if they don't.

    Tennessee Titans expressed an interest, but the Bearsj ust hired Dowell Loggains (from Tennessee) as the QB coach. If anything, thats more of a premonition that Cutler is remaining in the captains seat.

    There's the rub right there. Even with no contract, who really has a need for him in their system?

    You can cut your losses, but who's going to want him with that contract?

    I'll be sad tomsee him go, but the Bears are good at WR. shop Marshall and get someone younger, clear some salary cap too.

    I'd like to see Forte finish his career as a Bear.

    He was a pretty decent teammate in Chicago by all accounts.

    It'll be interesting to see if stories start now that he's gone, though.
