With Jay Cutler gone, I thought I'd repost my 2013 re-crap of Jay Cutler's career. I wrote it when I thought the Bears wouldn't be dumb enough to re-sign him.

After five historically important seasons, Cutler led the Bears to three Super Bowl appearances, in two Super Bowls he set records for touchdowns thrown and pa...
