Wheelin' and Dealin' at the Highest of Prices... (Or the rumor game.)

The truth about this whole rumor business is that it is business, Schefter, Williamson and all the other sports writing spin doctors out there could care less about the truth as long as it can be exciting and/or controversial with just a hint of truth to it. It has been a while since I have written here, well anywhere, due to my move and more truthfully a lack of passion. Last night passion smacked me in the face and maybe someone already said it or perhaps somebody said it better but I've yet to see it and I'm saying it now.

WE KNOW NOTHING!

Which brings me to my next point. This is all Josh McDaniels' fault and not because he might have thought about trading Cutler, (which would be stupid) but because he let whatever matter he was involved in get to the the press without a deal made. If the trade had happened then he would just look stupid but by letting this leak he has made the entire organization look bad and he has put Cutler in an awkward position where he may not feel as though he can play for a man he doesn't trust or respect. McDaniels is showing how inexperienced he is and the heart of the matter is that there are very few things to do about this but none of them has been done.

 

First thing is first, a press conference or at the very least a meeting with Cutler and the brass followed by a team statement is essential. If that isn't enough, then you stick to your guns if you don't plan on trading the kid show him how much you believe the words that are coming out of your mouth, in the universal language of zeroes, yes contract extensions say I love my quarterback better than anything else does. If these two things don't resolve the issue then Bowlen has a choice, trade your QB and push your Super Bowl expectations back by at least 5 years or fire your coach and well it looks bad but your team is still on the rise and coaches are a dime a dozen anyhow.

What actually happened became irrelevant once the rumor game was played. Whatever happens, Cutler is who I'll side with and I'm sure his teammates feel the same. McDaniels' Wheelin' and Dealin' ways may cost the Broncos the one guy who gave us any hope of winning a championship in the next ten years. Perhaps the right thing will be done though, it needs to happen soon.
