As you know, posts from La La Land are a little different. They are not for the purpose of starting an intellegent debate, being MHR's village idiot I don't understand 'intellegent debate'........nor want to. I really hadn't planned a post 'till after the draft--but somethings bugging me (which is not allowed in the land) --so I need to write something so I'm no longer bugged. The McJaygate situation has to be resolved. Not that Josh or Jay get resolved--we as fans get resolved. For this post I pulled some 'stuff' from John Henderson's article at the Denver Post (here) so we could resolve (no matter what happens) Jay is a good guy.........and because he is our QB...........We love him.

Here is some of the things Jay does when he's not on the field. Doesn't sound like a spoiled cry-baby some writers have tried to paint him. Looks like a caring person that we could love. I personally love and am happy he is our QB.....you should also.
On the other hand, this is a quarterback who dips into his own pocket to fly a Broncos public relations employee to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. He meets diabetes patients in Honolulu and Tampa, Fla. He shows up on his day off after victories to analyze film and urges teammates to join him. He has the toughness and down-to-earth qualities that make him "one of the guys" in the locker room.
"I've seen the word 'surly' used to describe him a few times, and I disagree with that," said Trey Holloway, his center at Vanderbilt. "The biggest misconception about Jay is that people call him an arrogant punk, and that's not true at all. At the end of the day, he's competitive."
Here it sounds like Jay is very loyal to his team........something you can love.
Cutler's high school coach in Indiana, Bob Clayton, said his former star's perception of a lack of loyalty by the Broncos led to an outburst by Cutler when he learned the team entertained trading him for the New England Patriots' Matt Cassel last weekend.
"Jay's fiercely loyal to whatever organization he's with, whether it was Heritage Hills, or Vanderbilt, or the Denver Broncos," Clayton said. "The thing about these athletes, a lot of them come from a high school and college system where loyalty is reciprocated. You don't get that in the NFL."
"You have to know Jay," Clayton said. "Jay is not a blabbermouth, not a chatty guy, but if you ask him a point-blank question, if he feels strongly about it, he's going to give you an answer. He gave an honest answer and it becomes a nationwide media issue."
If you were to ask me at this point I think Jay got pissed and is no politician When you consider the mess politician's have made of this country you have to love that also.
He opens his house to friends--you have to love that.
At Vanderbilt, he often invited players to his home in Santa Claus, Ind., during holiday breaks so they wouldn't spend them alone. He made a point to hang out with the offensive linemen and earned his props by running over Southeastern Conference defensive backs.
I have been a Bronco fan since 1962 and have seen (and thought) a lot of funny things. I remember when we traded I believe Criss Hinton for John Elway and was upset. "Why would we trade for a cry-baby dictating his own terms," I thought to myself. Funny me..........
Then again, if old-time Broncos fans remember, another quarterback went through the same thing. After three years, John Elway was 27-10 but hadn't won a playoff game and was clashing with Dan Reeves, his coach.
"People were saying, 'He's a loser. Keep Reeves. Trade Elway,' " Clough said.
The bottom line is I hope Jay Cutler reads this. He needs to know that we love him and stand behind him reguardless what happens. I personally have to believe that Josh and Jay ten years from now will be best friends with five Super Bowl rings with their name.
Remember that all comments in this land have to be positive, we will make the playoffs this year, and we are going to the Super Bowl until we don't.
