Jay Cutler Trade Talk

I don’t know what it is about the Jay Cutler situation that I like so much.  It is likey not football related, more just the drama of it all.

A first year head coach attempts to trade his teams star QB a month into his job.  Whether that is a good decision or not, I am not really qualified to say.  It sure sounds stupid, it actually sounds like the dumbest thing any coach could ever do, let’s be honest here.  If you talk about trading your star player, you better trade him or there’s going to be a lot of upset people in the organization, not the mention the fans.

Then there’s Cutler, walking around all sad, shoulders sagging like Charlie Brown.  I think his brain’s got diabetes, because normal adults don’t whine for this long after our ego gets checked.  I know it would be insulting for your team to seek trades in order to get another QB, but your actions become questionable when you mope around about it for 2 weeks.  That said, I’m glad he is acting like little 6th grade boy, pouting about getting picked second last for recess basketball, because his friend Mason Medinski was one of the captains picking teams and he thought that he should have been picked first.  It makes for a far more entertaining free agency period.

Even though Cutler could have sucked it up by now, I feel the fault lies in Head Coach, Josh McDaniels’ initial attempt to trade Cutler and bring in Matt Cassel.  First of all, Id rather have Cutler any day.  Secondly, what’s next, trade Brandon Marshall, so you can bring in that future star Desean Jackson?  Cutler made the ProBowl last year, Cassel played good in a handful of games and who knows how much of that was Moss either bailing him out with his ball skills, or Moss drawing double teams so there were easy passes elsewhere.

Whatever the case, keep on duking it out boys,  I’ll be here reading.  What’s that Jay, you’re selling your house in Denver?... oh, it’s just a second home, not your primary residence…what’s that, your parents are selling there house too?  I guess you guys are both just trying to take advantage of the super hot real-estate market in America right now.  You’re just cashing in while the getting’s good?..or…

I love it.


  1. I thinkthat you would haven to be the dumbest guy on earth to trade Jay Cutler.

  2. I think you are right Brian Murphy. How often to franchise QB's come around? Not even one per draft.
