I posted these takes in another thread.
I think Rotoworld sums up Cutler's performance accurately:
Sacked seven times by a swarming Packers defense, Jay Cutler completed just 11-of-27 passes for 126 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in a 23-10 Week 2 loss at Green Bay.
Talk about a debaculous fiasco. Cutler spent the week daring the Packers to press his receivers and responded with one of the worst games of his career, barking at his overwhelmed offensive line despite his own penchant for holding the ball too long. Five days after starting 1-of-10 for 13 yards against the Colts, Cutler was 1-of-3 for -2 yards deep into the first quarter. Throwing lazy passes off his back foot, late down the middle and into double coverage, Cutler's mechanics, field vision and decision-making were appallingly bad. At one point in the fourth quarter, his passer rating was lower than his total rushing yards. The concern for fantasy leaguers is that Cutler has been unable to move the offense in 5-of-8 quarters to start the season, including the one quarter that Dwight Freeney was on the field for the Colts. He's a shaky QB2 option versus the Rams in Week 3.
Cutler wasn't very good last year, and his oline this season is just as bad. Despite the addition of Marshall, he'll have many of the same issues, and more games like this. Will he improve on last years numbers? I think the answer is slightly, but not as much as some people think. Over the season Marshall will get his numbers, and Cutler will be up & down. His mechanics have regressed. The results of a QB throwing off his back foot aren't a whole lot different than if a pitcher does. Home run! Interception!
I don't believe his overall numbers for this season are going to be a whole lot better than last year. If you're in a small league you can drop him for somebody else who has a good match up. If in a larger league he's a dicey play because he can implode at any time. I prefer him at home, with a good match up. Other than that, he rides the pine, or should....
