It has been almost a year since Cutler was traded to the Chicago Bears. It has been an up and down year for the Denver Broncos. We suffered through more drama this season then anybody. There was no way this off season was going to be as stressful as the last one. On Sunday, Denver traded for Brady Quinn. It is a news worthy story, but nothing like the Cutler fiasco. Today, I come across this video and this just boils my blood.
These analysts start talking about how the Denver trade was pretty good for the Broncos. After the 10 seconds of positive, they go directly into bashing the Broncos. First thing they talked about was trading Cutler. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! That was last off season. It was handled poorly, but it was handled poorly on both sides. Cutler stopped communicating after finding out about Cassel. He played the "poor me" card and cry babied himself out of Denver. He then showed his maturity by bashing us, the fans. I never will forgive him for that. That is just classless.
Then they start talking about us trying to trade Brandon Marshall. They say we are trying to get rid of our best playmaker. That is so false I don't even know where to begin! We would all LOVE to have a hard working, mature Brandon Marshall on our team. It would be a dream come true, but we don't have him. We have the immature, all about me Brandon Marshall. So yes, we are going to listen to offers for him. His talent is unquestioned, but there are enough questions about his attitude to complete a game of jeopardy. They conveniently leave out how Brandon didn't want to play week 17. Whether he said it or not, he didn't want to play. He got his 100 catches and 1000 yards and decided "okay that's enough for a big contract, I'm done." IMO, Brandon and the Broncos are finished. Too many chances have been wasted. I don't care how many pro bowls he makes. He is a cancer to the locker room. I am on the side of Champ and the others who supported McD in benching Marshall.
They are also saying how Denver is getting rid of "their best tight end" in Tony Scheffler. Tony Scheffler is NOT the best tight end for the Denver Broncos. Denver's offensive scheme calls for good blocking tight ends which is the exact opposite of Tony Scheffler. Daniel Graham is the best tight end in Denver. The best tight end in Denver would never give up at the end of the year (WHILE WE ARE STILL IN CONTENTION FOR THE PLAYOFFS!).
Then they start talking about how Denver "let go" of Mike Nolan. At this point, I was furious. Denver and Mike both agreed it was best for them to split ways. They had a friendly split and that was the end of it. They promoted Wink at the recommendation of every veteran defensive player that we have grown to respect and love. But the MSM decides to paint Josh McD as the bad guy. They say "they released him because they didn't agree with his play calling on game day". If Denver had truly released Mike without some kind of willingness on his side, we would have heard about it. Unless I am totally wrong, the fact is that they both decided it was best to split.
Some of you might be asking what the point of this post is. Quite frankly, it's too point out how dumb and biased the MSM is. I also want to see if I am the only person who feels this way. These analysts sit there and act like they know everything about the Broncos organization when they don't. I would bet that half of the people who post regularly on this site are know more about the Broncos then the actual analysts who are getting paid to comment know. I'm sick of these people sitting down and condemning every move that the Broncos make. Was trading Cutler the best move? Probably not, but it is totally unfair to keep the blame all on McD. Was the benching of Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler a smart move? Strategically No, but from a coach's perspective I would have done the exact same thing. I don't want anyone playing unless they want to win. Players like Brian Dawkins want to win. You can see it on their face how much they want to win. They deserve to have players out there on the field with them who want it just as bad. Brandon and Tony did not want to win.
People have been against Josh since the day he got hired. They kept saying he was really young and inexperienced. Then, the Cutler situation happened, and they have never changed their views about him. Never mind that he took a team who was projected as 5-11 at best and nearly took them to the playoffs. The main stream media is acting like a child. Make one mistake and they never let you forget it. Dear MSM, Your job is to report the facts. Stop giving us your biased opinions because nobody wants to here them.
