Who got the better of the Cutler trade?

If you factor in the possibility that Cutler might have pulled a Manny-being-Manny (when he quit hustling, so he could get out of Boston) on the Broncos, I suppose Kyle Orton and a couple of No. 1s is better than that, but overall, I think Broncos’ owner Pat Bowlen and their new coach blew it. In the end, they dug down into the sandbox with Baby Jay, got their feelings hurt, and weren’t professional enough to rise above Cutler’s immaturity.
Orton is a decent NFL QB, but Cutler may wind up a great one if he gets a handle on his emotions and grows up ” that’s a decent-sized “if,” however, so given the circumstances, the Broncos did OK.
But will they be better because of it? Nope, I think they mishandled the situation to the detriment of the team. And the Bears, who haven’t had much in the way of quarterbacks since Sid Luckman (Billy Wade? Bobby Douglass? Jim McMahon?), will win more games than the Broncos, this year and maybe as long as Baby Jay plays for them.
The truth about this trade is: There were no winners, only losers.
The Broncos lost because they got rid of a Pro Bowl quarterback. The Bears lost because they got rid of two draft picks. This was just a BAD trade.
If I had to pick a winner, I would say the Bears because they don’t have to sweat out any Rex Grossman “adventures” anymore.
