It looks as if we’re coming to the end of an entertaining, fascinating soap opera. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen issued a statement Tuesday night saying the team is seeking to trade disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler.
This makes me sad because this has been a great show.
For the past month, Cutler has superbly played the role of confused, spoiled, self-centered modern athlete. If he’s this sensitive and this clueless, he will suffer through a sad ride in the NFL.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels is, in my mind, the secondary villain in this drama, but he’s also made his share of mistakes. He inherited one of the game’s best young talents, and he almost instantly alienated him. McDaniels has been offered a painful lesson. Let’s hope he learned from his mistake.
For Broncos fans, it’s been a month of bizarre fun. There’s something weirdly interesting about watching two grown men act like children.
What do you think? Who’s the bad guy? Is it Cutler or McDaniels? Or both?
