The pipe dream most 49er fans had (or was it just me?) of landing Jay Cutler is over. The Broncos sent Cutler to the Bears for Kyle Orton, a first-round pick in 2009, 2010 and a third-round pick in 2009. The Niners were never mentioned as being serious suitors for Cutler but the Bears beat out the Buccaneers, Lions, Redskins and Titans who were all rumored to have been involved in trade talks. Check out what our Bears blogger on the FanSided.com Sports Network has to say about the trade: http://beargoggleson.com/

About the Author
Eric Melendez has been a life-long 49ers fan that bleeds Red and Gold. While growing up in Orange, CA he was behind enemy lines when the Rams played in Anaheim in the ’80s and most of the ’90s. This however allowed him to see the 49ers every year when they came into town as his dad had season tickets for the Rams. Having lived in San Francisco since 2008, his appreciation for the Niners has only grown as he is able to cheer on the 49ers with locals at the bar and attend home games.
