Did Poor Jay Get His Feelings Hurt?

Wah, wah, wah! How dare you think about trading me! Wah, wah ,wah! I am your star QB! Wah, wah, wah! Call me WonderBeard or I'll quit!

Jay Cutler is mad that the Broncos and new head coach Josh McDaniels may have had trade discussions regarding Cutler. The possible three-way trade would have sent Cutler to Tampa Bay and brought Matt Cassel to Denver from New England. The Broncos do not deny the fact, but state that other teams called them and they listened. Now, Cutler is pouting that his beloved team may not think he is so great and feels the team is still trying to trade him. It is not a no confidence note in Cutler. Regardless of whether or not the trade talk is true, Jay needs to quit being a cry baby and understand that it is just part of the game.

There are only a handful of players who are honestly hands-off in trade discussions (both Mannings, Tom Brady, LaDanian Thompson, etc.). Trades are less frequent in the NFL than in the NBA or MLB, mainly because teams do not seem to get as much for a player as you do in the other leagues (i.e. Matt Cassel AND Mike Vrabel to the Chiefs for a second round pick in 2009). I don't think there is a GM out there who would not at least listen to an offer. He may laugh at you or deny you on the spot, but most would at least listen.

McDaniels is coming from New England and worked with Cassel last year. He saw what Cassel did coming off the bench for the injured Tom Brady and I cannot blame him for possibly wanting to bring Cassel in. Cutler needs to grow up and understand the NFL is a business and there WILL BE a time when the team will trade him or boot him to curb when his price gets too high or his output gets too low. Not MIGHT BE, but WILL BE. It is a fact of life in the NFL. It happened to Marvin Harrison this year due to his high salary cap hit. It will happen at some point in the future to Peyton Manning. Colts fans just hope it will be many years down the road and much later than sooner.

Hey, Jay! Keep whining and well keep making Jeff George comparisons. I think we still have a few cases of some vintage 1993 J&G 4th&20 whine? You interested?

I'm not sure who this LaDanian Thompson is. Is he the running back for the Chefs?

Also, should there be a "WonderBeard" tag?

"1993 J&G 4th&20 whine"--that's funny.

OK, brain fart on my part. I'm not sure what the fuck I was thinking, but yes, it should be LaDanian Tomlinson.

Added the "Wonderbeard" tag as well.
