Why Would Any NFL Team Want Jay Cutler?

I just have one question for all you Jets, Redskins, Bucs, Browns, Lions, Panthers, and fans of any other team that might be seeking the services of still-Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler.

Okay, several questions, but they all make the same claim.

Do you actually want your team to have as its quarterback someone who will bring huge amounts of controversy to your locker room?

Do you really want a quarterback who is fast becoming a prima donna that will make fans forget Terrell Owens?

Do you really want a quarterback who, when fortunes for your team go south, will become an instant media and locker room target even if he is playing well?

Are you sure you want a quarterback that looks as if—if the Broncos are telling the truth that is—he has no problem lying to those who will be paying his salary? According to the Broncos organization, Jay Cutler, who claimed not to receive any phone calls from management over a period of ten days, is telling a lie.

Denver phone records ought to be able to see just who is lying here.

Are you sure you want a quarterback who, after playing one year, just might demand to be traded based on possibly even flimsy excuses?

Do you want to be constantly yelling at your team's quarterback every time you watch ESPN or NFL Network or FOX Sports or whatever media, to, "Get over it, Jay! Be a man!"

Because, in my opinion, there is only one team Cutler might go to that will satisfy him, the Broncos, and everyone, and this team right now does not need a quarterback: the Chiefs.

If the Broncos trade Cutler to the Kansas City Chiefs for Matt Cassel:

1. Cassel gets to play for Josh McDaniels again, the coach who made Cassell a good quarterback that was forced to lead this decade's "dynasty" after Tom Brady got hurt.

2. The Chiefs get a quarterback who most certainly will be motivated to lead his new team to victory at least four times during 2009—against the Broncos—and the team that dissed him: the San Diego Chargers.

3. Both teams get a quarterback who is in the "good-to-outstanding" range skills set-wise. The Chiefs will get their quarterback to lead them out of the wilderness while the Broncos finally get one who will lead them back to the playoffs.
