shanahan made it official today and named cutler the starter. im sure the success of rivers and romo make this change easy, but those guys arent rookies. i cant believe shanahan is throwing the towel in on the season. maybe hes looking at the situation the steelers were in with ben a few seasons ago, knowing cutler cant be any worse than the incumbent. this does seem to be the year of 1st time starting qb's. personally, i want this to backfire and see the chiefs and chargers make the playoffs.

are the bears the next contending team to make a change?

I can't belive he's changing like that right in the middle of a playoff run.

He knows if they make the playoffs as a wild card with Plummer they are 1 and out anyhow in a road game with any of the 4 AFC division winners.

Gutty move, but it shows how much job security Shanahan has that if it blows up he can afford to chalk it to building for the future.

shanahan: "he gives us a chance to win now",

"this is in the best interrests of our football team"

Yeah Denver doesnt get the coverage here like the suckhawks do.(being surrounded by both fans here) But watching the Denver game, theres alot more wrong with that team than just Plummer. But gotta blame it on someone.

But gotta blame it on someone.shhhhhhh. no one wants anyone to know that in the 1st time in years, denver cant run the ball. (or that elway without a running game was 3X the choker that p. manning has been w/o a defense)
