ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen recently released an article saying that Jay Cutler has formally asked to be traded from the Denver Broncos.
The disgruntled quarterback said that he "felt antagonized" by new head coach Josh McDaniels during their meeting on Saturday, where he then told his agent Bus Cook to request a trade.
Now, I can see why Cutler is upset, but at the same time, he has made this situation far worse than it needed to be. Here are five reasons why I feel Jay Cutler needs to shut up and play football.
Now, the I am sure yo are wondering why I have put Josh McDaniels on this list. If you take a close look at the picture, who is McDaniels with and what game are they playing in?
For those of you who don't know, he's with then NFL MVP Tom Brady and they happen to be playing in the Super Bowl. Seeing as Jay Cutler has never been to the postseason, and Josh McDaniels made Tom Brady a MVP and Matt Cassel a bona fide starter in this league (for now), working with him would make any young and inspiring quarterback salivate.
The additions of Brian Dawkins from Philly, Renaldo Hill and Andre Goodman from Miami, and Andra Davis from Cleveland will boost a defense that was by far one of the leagues worst last season.
You can count on the Broncos also having a defensive mindset in the draft, along with the usual offensive linemen they are known for drafting.
Marshall caught 104 passes last season for 1,265 yards, but only six touchdowns. Brandon Stokley had 49 receptions for 528 yards and three touchdowns. He also had a receiving average of 10.8 yards.
Jabar Gaffney recorded 48 grabs for 468 yards and two scores. His yards per reception was 12.3 yards/ catch.
Now some of you may not think anything of these stats, but what they are saying is that all three of these receivers are capable of moving the ball down field.
Yeah, we all too would be smiling if we were getting paid millions of dollars to play a game.
You signed a six-year, $48 million contract in 2006. That came with $11 million in guaranteed money, along with performance escalators and other incentives.
If your ego is getting in the way of you making something like $5 million this year, then find a different job, please.
You were quoted saying that you have better arm now than John Elway did in his prime. Now, I don't look into this at all, but the fans that cheer for your current team do.
I am willing to guarantee you that most, if not all, of the Denver Broncos faithful took that comment out of context and now think that you think that you are better that John Elway.
You put your foot in your mouth, now you have to stay and prove to them that you weren't lying. Stay in Denver and win a couple championships. Then, if the Broncos try to trade you, then you can throw your little temper-tantrum.
