As talented of a quarterback as Cutler is, he has never had consistent winning success throughout his collegiate and pro careers. At Vanderbilt, Cutler led terrible teams to losing records. In the NFL, he has established a 56-48 record while leading a team to the playoffs just one time in his eight seasons as a starting quarterback. The veteran QB is just not a winner.
