That’s how the Cookie Crumbles
No doubt about it. Josh McDaniels has certainly had an impact as the new head coach of the Broncos. Not quite the one we all had in mind. To take one of the NFL’s most stellar franchises and turn it to ashes in the first few months takes an exceptional talent. Honestly, I’m dismayed at the reaction to all of this. Sure, Cutler can share the blame, but ultimately, the complete implosion of this lies in the hands of a kid named Josh. A kid who hasn’t the foggiest idea what it takes to be a head coach in the NFL, and who has absolutely no credibility to run a team. Yet I hear the banter on the various sports talk shows around town whose hosts are steadfastly supporting McDaniels through this whole mess. My guess is that certain members of the media in Denver don’t want to rankle the new kid in town for fear that McDaniels might hold a grudge and be less apt to give them a story somewhere down the line. Objectivity has been completely thrown to the wind. McDaniels is simply a Belichick wanna be and it’s beyond my comprehension what Bowlen saw in him to give the kid the job in the first place.
Think on this
Would you rather have a 25-year-old quarterback named Jay Cutler who just returned from the pro bowl, or Chris Simms? Really now? You can’t be serious. So here’s the elephant in the room and I believe is the basis for the Broncos wanting to trade Cutler in the first place. Could it be that the Broncos are concerned about Cutler’s diabetes diagnosis? The folks at Dove Valley will deny,deny and deny that Cutler’s health has anything to do with their decision making. But it does and I believe is a factor behind all of this. Worried top brass at the Broncos are concerned whether Cutler can remain healthy long term. So out he must go. For Chris Simms… Can you say 3-13? 2-14? 1-15. That’s your future with Chris Simms. And just trading Cutler for somebody else isn’t going to work now. The Broncos have lost any bargaining power. So don’t expect Detroit to give up that number 1 pick now.
Questions of the day?
Should the Broncos trade Jay Cutler?
And if you were Pat Bowlen, what would you do?
