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:
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.

Broncos QB Jay Cutler upset over trade rumors.
In an attempt to acquire New England QB Matt Cassel, the Denver Broncos were offering to deal Jay Cutler, according to Bill Williamson from ESPN. However, the deal fell through, and Matt Cassel was traded (along with longtime LB Mike Vrabel) to the Kansas City Chiefs for a second round draft pick, earlier today. Bill Williamson’s source claims that the Broncos are no longer considering trading Cutler. However, the Pro Bowl QB is now livid, and is demanding to be traded.
Josh McDaniels may have just made the first HUGE mistake as a head coach in the NFL. Continue reading
