Agreed about Coleman not being his best in '06/'07. But I'm talking about '01 and '09 Cutler. '01 Cutler would demolish Phil if phil came in looking like he did in 2011 (his all-time best). This speaks to how good Ronnie actually was, no doubt about that. But '01 Cutler was incredible. If it weren't for Ronnie being there Cutler would have smoked the competition.
2001 Cutler still didn't have much of a back. Cutler has been gifted many of his placings. In fact, if you look at his competitive history, he has had the biggest push and gifts probably of any pro since the 70s.
