Cutler just throws way too many of them compared to his touchdown percentage, which is also actually quite lower as well. Same thing goes with yards per attempt. All considerably lower. I won't really knock on Cutler too much with his first season in Chicago since he was in his first year with a new team. But even back in Denver, Cutler wasn't that great. He may improve, but I'd be surprised if he becomes significantly better than the player he already is.

    But people shouldn't really have to look at stats to justify the reasoning. The play on the field speaks for itself. Cutler just doesn't make that many good decisions with the football to be considered better than Romo in my opinion. And doesn't make nearly as many big plays.
    As the token Dallas fan on this thread I have to agree with Ness this time. Romo has a much better head for the game, has a better arm than he is credited, is a very good field general & nobody looks off safeties like Tony Romo, just ask the Eagles.

    As for Scott McCloghan leaving the team, I posted this on the Pro FB pg. & although repeating posts isn't my habit, I think it's relevant here:

    See what happens when you say you want draft Tim Tebow?

    Just kidding.

    Jed York, youngest GM in waiting in the NFL, has already assumed most of the mgmt. & admin. responsibilities of the franchise. Maybe this will complete that process. Unlike other 2nd generation owners in the league he actually is getting some hands on experience in the real NFL including the draft, can't say the same for Mark Davis in Oakland or Stephen Jones in Dallas, who won't be anything more than placeholders until their fathers are 6 ft. under.

    The 9ers pulled out of their downward spiral last yr. with dramatic defensive improvements (from almost dead last in points given up in 08 to 3rd vs. the rush in 09) & a whole new attitude imparted from Singletary, not bad for a team who didn't have their top draft pick signed & on the field until mid-October. With the departure of many pay me or say goodbye FA superstars in Zona, the complete rebuilding in Seattle & the joke that is the Rams under new ownership, right now the 9ers are the most stable team in the division & s/b the favorite to win it this season.

      You lost me right there LizardState. A Dallas/Niners combo fan is an oxymoron. :)

        It looks like that if it happens, it will happen quickly. According to Maiocco's post last night, they already started moving files from his office. NOT GOOD.

        The idea that this would happen with this horrible timing pisses me off.

          Reminds me of the Norv ordeal, how could this crap keep happening to us? Holy Jesus.

          • This has to be something personal...Jed would not fire McCLoughan for a football related matter 5 weeks before the draft

              Apparently the brass was talking about Scotty Mac's future with him yesterday at their meeting. Something went wrong at that meeting.

              I'm wondering if this will affect them possibly signing Chester Pitts, who is supposed to visit today after meeting with the Lions for the passed two days.

                  Well, it seems like he's out of SF. I havent always been a fan of McCloughan but at least he was smart and seemed like he knew what he was doing. Now, its up to the Yorks and Singletary. UGH!!! My head is hurting.

                  And is it true that Singletary wanted to pass on drafting Willis back in 2007? Because if so, me being a fan of Singletary has taken a hit.

                  A sad day for 49er fans and thank God that Bill Walsh isnt alive to see what's going on with the team he made great. Of course, im sure he's turning in his grave right about now. UGH. :( :( :( :( :(

                  • This is indeed strange, strange timing. I wonder if Scotty Mac truly had "personal" issues or if there were business/football reasons he's gone as this is a horrible time to lose him a GM.

                    I have a lot of faith in Sing as a motivator and Coach, but not as a GM. I know he's doing a lot for the Draft process, but if he has GM added to his duties and makes all the teams picks in the Draft, I think it will end up being a fail as it's too much for someone with his lack of football operation experience. I thought he and Scotty Mac made a good partnership, as they had different strengths.

                    According to reports, their Draft board is already tentatively set. I'd hate to see bad blood with the Niners and Scott, as he may be tempted to go to a rival team's FO and spill our plans, etc.

                    All I can say is R.I.P. Bill Walsh. We need a visionary to lift this franchise back up again and build it the right way.

                      Letís not jump to conclusions yet. Adam Schefter is reporting itís only a leave of absence. He is also making it sound like the team doesnít want McCloughan gone and that itís more a personal issue he has that isnít related to football.

                      Schefter is also claiming they will move responsibilities over to director of player personnel Trent Baalke and director of pro personnel Tom Gamble before York takes a role in things.

                      • A reliable poster from another board said that McCloughans wife filed for divorce...could be a peice of whats goin on..

                        • Mike Singletary with GM responsibilities, head coach responsibilities, and being a father of seven children. That is a lot on a person's plate.

                            Yeah here is the post I think you are referencing:

                            "I WON"T POST ANY SPECIFIC BECAUSE YOU MUST DO SO YOURSELF.

                            GO TO SANTA CLARA"S SUPERIOR COURT WEBSITE, GO TO CASE INFO

                            LOOKUP CIVIL CASES

                            LOOKUP ANYONE BY LAST NAME

                            MAKE SURE TO USE CORRECT LAST NAME

                            MAKE SURE TO SEARCH ALL CASES IN THE LAST WEEK OR WHATEVER

                            MY DISCLAIMER IS THAT I DON"T KNOW ANYTHING AND I AM NOT CLAIMING ANYONE (INCLUDING SCOT MCLOUGHAN) HAS ANY CASES (CIVIL OR CRIMINAL). MANY PEOPLE HAVE SIMILAR OR SAME NAMES.

                            THIS IS A GENERAL HOW TO. HAVE FUN!"

                            I haven't checked but people are saying there is a divorce and paternity case filed there under Scot's name. This is also really consistent with Adam Schefter's report. I really think Maiocco blew this way out of proportion. Its understandable why he did, as it was suspicious when no one responded to him, but its possible the Niners are just trying to respect McCloughan's privacy, as Shefter is claiming.

                              Singletary gets good effort out of his players and has been successful, but lets be honest, the guy can barley string a proper sentence together.

                              Director of player personnel Trent Baalke, director of pro personnel Tom Gamble, or an outside hire would mist likely take over if Scot left for good. Baalke and Gamble seem to be taking on Scot's responsibilities while he is gone at least.

                              • Although the Niners board might already be semi set, i think its pretty clear that this is Singletarys show to run now. Maoicco was on Chronicle Live earlier and apparently Singletary has been very involved in this draft this year, from attendance at the combine, to holding interviews, calling old coaches and even going to schools for private workouts (apparently he was at Univ of Cincinnati last week)..point is..he is THE trigger man now in the war room..so we will see how Singeltary the talent evaluator is..which imo is still something thats up in the air.
