A good day morphs into a terribly shitty day



This grinning moron right here here tried, unsuccessfully, to trade Jay Cutler today. The supposed deal would have sent Cutler to Tampa, some undisclosed compensation from Tampa to NE and Matt Cassel here. Obviously it didn't happen, because Cassel was eventually shipped to KC (great) for a 2nd round pick.

So how does Cut feel about being dangled for a guy with half his talent? Well, if you believe Bill Williamson's source, pissed:

The relationship has been tarnished," the source said. "I think it's beyond repair."

Jesus.

"It's like a knife to Jay's heart," the source said. "It will be hard for him to get past this."

Awesome. What else?

In the aftermath of the trade Saturday, Cutler asked permission to find his own trade partner but was denied by the Broncos, according to the source. Cutler is still hopeful he will be traded because he feels betrayed by McDaniel, the source said.

The source said Denver is no longer interested in dealing Cutler, who made the Pro Bowl in 2008, his second full season as a starter. The source said Tampa Bay, Detroit and Chicago could be possible destinations if Cutler gets his way and is traded. The source pointed out that until Cutler heard about the trade talks Saturday, he was completely happy playing for McDaniels and being in Denver.



Granted, Bill Williamson's "source" may be that 3 week old gravy stain on his polo shirt, but Vic Lombardi's hearing the same thing.

Is it true? Who knows? Dangling the best young arm in the game and the future of the fucking franchise, especially when that guy is kind of a sensitive head-case already, is a terrible move.

If Cutler gets traded over this I'm going to be very, very, angry. Clock tower angry.

"Tried" to trade him? Doesn't pass the smell test. If McD tried to trade Jay and the Pats were going to get the 19th pick in the FIRST round out of that deal, why did the Pats end up trading Cassell today for a SECOND round pick instead? Are the Pats morons too?It's more likely that Tampa and Detroit called Denver about Cutler as part of a fishing expedition, which happens all the time, and the so-called "moron" head coach laughed his ass off when he found out he was essentially trading Jay straight up for Cassell. The press should choose their words a little more carefully--"trying" to trade someone isn't the same thing as listening to a team make an offer. If McD wanted to get rid of Jay so bad, why didn't the deal get done? The Pats would have got a first rounder instead of a second. NE doesn't have the rep of bailing out on deals favorable to them. This whole thing smells like the press trying to start a fire if you ask me.

Do you think they would let you up into the top of the old May D&F tower?

Let the Jeff Garcia era begin!
