They'll Work It Out


It's still too early to say what will happen, but I believe they are both mature enough to resolve their problems and go about business. They haven't even had an opportunity to talk yet, let alone practice together. I will be willing to bet anything that the differences will be resolved by the start of the season.

Josh McDaniels, who may only be a few years older than Jay Cutler, is still developing his coaching style, and every coach is different. There's no right way. I know of players who were traded and never even spoke with their coaches. It has happened. Now that wasn't my style, but it's not to say it's wrong.

Up until now, Jay Cutler hasn't come across as a high-maintenance quarterback, but he has to get over it. It's more important that the player forgets than the coach -- his job is less secure. This is the NFL. The grass may seem greener on the other side of the fence, but Cutler's got a pretty good situation going in Denver. Who's to say the next team he plays for would be as good?

Like I said, though, it's still way too early. Once they get working together, the differences will be forgotten and football will become the focus.
