Invesco Field at Mile High
In today’s Mile High Sports Daily newsletter James Merilatt runs down some of the reasons why the Denver Bronco’s once dedicated fans are a dying breed. It is generally a good article and he makes some good points. What really stood out to me was Cuter’s statement. I remember seeing the headlines about him making some disparaging statements about Denver fans, but I did not bother to read the article because I have no desire to know what a 14 year old whiny girl thinks about Bronco fans. Alas, I could not avoid his statements.
My thoughts are this:
This guy is playing for the Broncos next season. Who cares what is happening on offense.
As we all know, the Broncos have a new QB folks. He will undoubtedly bring something that has been missing from the Denver quarterback position for about three years: facial hair. In fact there has been a curse left upon us since Jake-the-Snake shaved his god awful porn-stache. Big Ben threw a beat-down on us in the 2005 AFC Championship, the ‘stache was shaved, and we haven’t been to the playoffs since.
Roger Goodell proposed to NFL owners this week a plan to add either one or two more games to the regular season. While the reasons for this are fairly simple (make more money), this writer believes the regular season should be left alone.
Here are the reasons why:
1. More games will be harder on the athlete’s bodies
It is rare for a player to play an entire season as the regular season stands. The season is very hard on players. More games adds more stress on their bodies.
2. Players deserve more money. Owners don’t like to give more money
Since the players are playing more games, they deserve more money. Which is fine, but will the owners shell out a fair share? This will further complicate the collective bargaining agreement negotiations. If an agreement on a new CBA is not reached by early next year, we could be headed toward a work-stoppage in 2011. Nobody wants that to happen.
Unhappy starting quarterback demanding a trade. Players not attending voluntary workouts. Contract negotiations.
Starting running back’s name being mentioned as a client in the trial of an alleged drug dealer?
According to ESPN, Broncos QB Jay Cutler and his agent, Bus Cook, met with head coach Josh McDaniels and GM Brian Xanders in Dove Valley on Saturday. Apparently the two parties met for approximately 20 minutes, and Cutler left unsatisfied with their conversation. He said that he does not plan on attending the team’s first meeting on Monday, and will not attend voluntary workouts. After reading various reports, it seems that not much has changed after this meeting between Cutler and McDaniels.
I’m sure by now, everyone knows what side I stand on in this McDaniels-Cutler debacle–(see Letter to Jay Cutler). But, McDaniels handling and Cutler’s mishandling of this situation in the past few weeks was merely reinforced in their meeting Sunday. The bottom line is that Jay Cutler needs to grow up.

Dear Jay Cutler,
The Denver Broncos organization has been around since 1960. They have won their division 10 times. They have been to the Super Bowl 6 times. Twice, have they had the privilege of calling themselves World Champions.
Since you have been quarterback of the Denver Broncos, they have won 0 division titles. They have been to the Super Bowl 0 times. In fact, the Denver Broncos have yet to reach the playoffs with you as a member of its team. Continue reading
