Has your perception of Jay Cutler changed?

Has your perception of Jay Cutler changed? | NFL Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
There is arguably no more polarizing a figure in all of Chicago sports than Jay Cutler. He plays the highest profile of positions on the most popular sport, so he obviously has a lot of eyes on him.
Micah James's insight:

If he can stay healthy throughout 2014, and judging by some of the warm fuzzies in this article...Cutler just might finally deliver on those QB1 potential numbers fantasy owners have been clamoring for.
