Cutler Right to Be Angry


The verbal jousting going on between Jay Cutler and the Denver Broncos could turn into a significant distraction that ultimately could harm the Broncos' chances at success next season.

By showing anger and surprise at the thought that he'd be traded, Cutler has invoked the wrath of sports fans and media. Trades are part of the game, after all.

However, Cutler, in my opinion, is right to be angry. He's a talented young quarterback who provided the heart to a team lacking much of it, at times, last year. He's highly competitive and has handled the inconsistencies of an offense without a steady running game and a young, erratic receiving corps.

The Hall of Fame career put forth by John Elway makes it easy to forget that he was originally drafted by the Baltimore Colts and refused to go there, forcing a trade to Denver. Eli Manning, similarly refused to go to the San Diego Chargers... Amazing how Super Bowl victories help quarterbacks shed the "diva" status...

I'd be stunned if Cutler doesn't show up for Denver's off-season workout program that begins Monday... If he doesn't show up, Denver has a legitimate problem to deal with and Cutler is more of the "diva" and less the competitor than I think he is...
