Jay Cutler 2014 NFL MVP?

Cutler

Chicago Bear’s WR Brandon Marshall has shown nothing but love for his starting quarterback this offseason, which every wide receiver should do if they want a piece of the receptions.  But it got me thinking, does Cutler really have what it takes to have an MVP caliber season.  We’re going to closely examine the last 5 NFL MVP Quarterbacks and see how far off Cutler is.

The MVPs

As the table shows, the requirements for winning MVP has definitely changed over the years as the passing game changes to be the focus of NFL offenses.

Bears Career Projected Average35832417
201326211912
2013 Projected38122817

As you can see from the table provided, Jay Cutler was projected to have a better season in 2013 than his career projected average while in Chicago.  Some stability with his coaching staff should contribute to another above average season based on his projected averages.

Conclusion 12-13 cruze bears packers 21

Now that we have all the information in front of us, what can we conclude?  Nothing really.

The main contributors to winning an MVP award are as follows; be an NFL QB, throw for more that 4,000 yards, throw 35+ touchdowns, all while keeping Ints at 10 or fewer.  In order to do any of those things you must stay healthy for a full 16 game season.  Something that Jay Cutler has only done once since joining the Chicago Bears.

Cutler is definitely in a good situation having offensive weapons like WRs Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and running back Matt Forte, that could propel him to some monster 2014 season numbers. But unless he can stay healthy for 16 games and keep his Ints down (a symptom that has hurt New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees win himself an MVP), I don’t foresee Cutler winning MVP any time soon.
