How good is Jay Cutler? It depends on whether you gauge wins & team success as your most important category (not the only one).

Its apples and oranges. as the most important player on a 53 man roster although he does not kick, punt, return, or play defense, you simply cannot lay a team's record entirely at the feet of the QB.
If we define an individual's success soley by the record of the team in the most team oriented sport in all major sports, then Jeff Hostetler, Mark Rypien, Trent Dilfer, and Brad Johnson would all have been considered Hall of Fame QB's before Dan Marino. It would also mean that David Tyree is a better wide receiver than Randy Moss, Larry Fitzgerald, Terrell Owens, and on and on.
It also, for you jbolt, makes san diego one of the worst franchises in the NFL. At the bottom are:
Cleveland, Detroit, New Orleans, Jacksonville and Houston -
Then - San Diego, Tennessee, Carolina, Atlanta, Seattle, and Arizona.
But if that is how you measure an individual - ok. I don't really see it that way.
