That's actually an interesting trade.

Initially I thought I rather have Cutler. Then when you break them down, it's not as easy to say:

-Both are elusive and can play well behind a porous OL. Cutler makes up for his OL with arm strength and an ability to throw with poor mechanics, Romo is mobile and shifty in the pocket.

-Both are relatively accurate.

-Both have had their share of success and failures. Cutler has had more playoff success but Romo has been better statistically.

-Both are not known as great 2 minute drill quarterbacks.

-Both have their flaws in progression reading. Cutler stares down his targets and fits it into the primary too much, believing in his arm strength at times when he shouldn't. Romo is the opposite, he's shy to pull the trigger and won't fit the ball into tight windows unless he absolutely has to.

-Both have similar regular season success rates.


This is about as close of a matchup as you can get. If I had to choose, I go with Cutler. I think Cutler did it with less talent around him. And he also has more playoff pedigree. But then again, Cutler had much better defensive talent around him than Romo as well so it's a wash.

It's damn close. If you asked me this same question last year I probably say Romo. In fact if you ask me again tomorrow I might say Romo. I really don't know who I go with.

It's a very interesting question.
