Jeff George isn’t Jay Cutler; and Jay Cutler will not be Jeff George

Jeff George had a distinguished college football career with the Illini; transferring to Champaign from Purdue, and that’s something you never see today, transfers within the same conference. It was also fortuitous, as Jeff George signed with 7 different teams during his 13 year career. Like Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, he’s also from the Hoosier state. George was drafted #1...

Comparing Jay Cutler to Jeff George is a stale bit

There’s this idea floating amongst the NFL Punditocracy that Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be this generation’s answer to Jeff George. It’s an interesting comparison, as Jeff George was signed by the Bears in 2004. There are some statistical similarities. Jay Cutler has a much better record as a starter, but the passing stats are close. Both Rich Gannon and Boomer Esiason...

Is Jay Cutler the next Jeff George?

Brian Billick made an interesting comparison today, wondering if Jay Cutler is the next Jeff George. Naturally, bears fans should be terrified by the prospect, though many of them were dumbfounded when the Bears gave him a monster contract extension. The comparison may be appropriate in that both men have great arms along with a gunslinger mentality when playing the position. But...

Jay Cutler won’t become this generation’s Jeff George

There’s an idea floating amongst the NFL Punditocracy that Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be this generation’s answer to Jeff George. It’s an interesting comparison, as Jeff George was signed by the Bears in 2004; but never took the field. He’s also a local Midwest guy- drafted #1 overall by his hometown Indianapolis Colts in 1990 out of Illinois. Jeff George had a distinguished...

Jeff George is Now Christian Ponder's Teacher

This week is one of the Minnesota Vikings Organized Team Activities, or OTA's, or I don't know what they're doing. I haven't been paying attention. I've been far too busy remembering that Purple Jesus is a god. But apparently things aren't going too hot for Christian Ponder.

Jeff George present at Vikings OTAs as 'guest coach'

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jeff George has been a name that has tantalized Minnesota Vikings' fans since his 12-game run with the team back in 1999. George, the 12-year NFL quarterback and former first-overall pick in the 1990 draft, was back on the field for Minnesota this week.
