I'm not sure I'd like the comparison if I were Cutler.

I can't see why all the hype for Croyle, period.

I think the comparison for Croyle was based on both players' propensity for being seriously injured throughout their careers. Croyle is the real deal when he is healthy though, but the question is can he stay healthy.

Interesting I thought also

Looking at the comparissons I thought was interesting also.Maurice Drew compared to Westbrook? Haven't seen alot of drew but westbrook is a great receiver and quuestionable runner.Lendale white vs Bettis? Hmm,I think White is faster and powerful not as much as bettis.Maroney and portis good comparision,Deangelo White vs martin interesting.Jimmy williams vs jammer if thats the case and williams is available we better not pass on him.Cromartie vs bailey I think is stretching it,cromartie before the injury had some holes in his game while bailey has dominated.Huff vs Williams tough guy to pass on but I don't think huff will be available.Ko Simpson vs Sharper would be nice to have a dominate safety.Darnell Bing vs lynch?

Man I really hope we trade Schaub for another 1st rounder or top 2nd rounder.We need starters not guys on the bench if we are to get to the promised land.
