Denver Broncos Drama: How Would You Feel If You Were Jay Cutler?

michael lavimodiereContributor IMarch 17, 2009

I know this issue with Jay Cutler wanting to be traded is tearing out the hearts of some Broncos fans.

The best way to deal with this is to resolve it like men. Jay needs to swallow his pride and show some humility, and Coach Josh McDaniels needs to admit his wrongdoings in handling it all. Pat should have already stepped in and taken control of his franchise.

But let's look at it from Cutler's perspective. Imagine you are a Pro Bowl quarterback who just came off a franchise record season. The next thing you know, a new unproven head coach comes in and wants to trade you for an average QB (which scares me, if McDaniels has control over the draft picks, because obviously he has a hard time recognizing true talent).

Imagine how John Elway felt when Dan Reeves came in. He didn't want to change, but he adapted to the system and won two Super Bowls to cap off a Hall of Fame career.

If I'm building a franchise, I'm choosing a proven quarterback almost every time, and if the decision comes down to McDaniels or Cutler...well, Pat, I say follow your past examples and keep the quarterback.

Denver fans know talent and see the potential in Cutler and in the 2009 season. Let's hope the team officials see it too.
