Cutler, what is he worth to you?

Alot has been said about Cutler and whining. Lets remember:

While at Vanderbilt, Cutler was a three-year captain and four-year starter, setting school career records for total offense (9,953 yds.), touchdown passes (59), passing yards (8,697), pass completions (710), pass attempts (1,242) and combined touchdowns (76) http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=498&contentID=5907

He was also voted team Captain by his teammates in 2008, so yes, he is a leader.(source)

And not to mention:

So if I can trust Wikipedia, the only injury this guy has had is a concussion, and he still finished the second half of the game. Whiner?

He also is fairly community minded:

Cutler does volunteer work for mentally challenged young people through Vanderbilt's "Best Buddies" program.

During the 2007 offseason, Cutler started the Jay Cutler Foundation, which partnered with Mile High United Way’s Youth Success Initiative to help at-risk youth overcome obstacles and graduate from high school.

On May 1, 2008, Cutler announced that he had been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and needs daily insulin shots. He is responding well with the insulin treatments.

Cutler works with Dedicated to Diabetes, which is a Denver-based organization that aims to improve public knowledge about diabetes.

I'll take him. What's to complain about when it comes down to it?

If you're going to say he's a whiner, back it up. This situation sucks, sure, but it has been thouroughly raped for a story and it could be what gives us a chance to snag him. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. That said, please post all the times he's whined - links or it didn't happen - so that we can stop having bullshit insubstantial assessments of how much whine Cutler is able to dispense.
