Cliches and Rumors Aplenty: Broncos QB Cutler Is Selling His Houses In Denver

Eric QuackenbushSenior Analyst IMarch 15, 2009

The latest rumor being churned through the mill is that Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler has put two of his houses in Denver up for sale.

Clearly unhappy about the handling of personnel moves made by the Broncos front office; the firing of Mike Shanahan being the most significant, and the trade talks being made behind his back by incumbent head coach Josh McDaniels for a second rate quarterback in Matt Cassell, Cutler has been requesting a trade be worked out.

The Broncos are almost at the point of no return, and if things aren't patched up fast, they will have an irate leader on their team.

Personally, I would like to see amends made between quarterback and coach, as well as ownership. Cutler has a promising future with this franchise, and trading him would be disastrous to the Broncos.

Cutler's been called a crybaby and been told to grow up. He's heard the rants and he's heard all the cliches, but I have to agree with what's been said. Strap on your helmet, be a man, and stop whining. Prove to your new coach that you are a leader! That's what the "C" on your jersey represents: Leadership.

I am also against this whole "C" on the jersey thing in general, but that's for another rant. Just do your job, Jay, and stop whining.

Sell your houses and get something smaller to live in. Be more economical. Get to work on time and when the coach tells you to jump, don't ask "why," ask "how high?" Earn the respect of your coach and teammates. Be somebody they can look up to.

Brian Dawkins is already questioning your motives. He might not say it outwardly, but he's thinking about it.

Set the example, don't be the example.

Food for thought: Be careful what you wish for; you might get the trade you're requesting, and while it may be to a team that might not suit your liking, I can assure you the Broncos will get what they want out of the deal.
