Things I don't understand

That a team with a 25 year old Pro Bowl quarterback that threw for 4,526 yards and 25 touchdowns in his third season would hire a coach that had any other ideas besides working with that 25 year old Pro Bowl quarterback.

That a team with a 25 year old Pro Bowl quarterback would try (or, if you prefer, seriously consider) trading that 25 year old Pro Bowl quarterback.

I also will not understand it if a team with perpetual quarterback issues doesn't try to swoop in and exploit the tensions between a team and its angry 25 year old Pro Bowl quarterback.

(see ESPN).

    It was my understanding that someone inquired about trading for him. They listened. I don't think they openly said they wansted to trade him.

  2. That's what the Broncos are saying now (and if I were running a team, I would listen to every trade offer, too), but given that no trade happened, I think they sort of have to say that. I don't think at this point it is clear how actively the Broncos engaged in discussions.

  3. Word now on PFT is that Cutler asked to be traded before this all went down because of his QB Coach leaving for USC.

    Either way I don't understand why a team that has no sign of a franchise quarterback wouldn't step in and say we will give you X and Y for him.

  4. This year I felt safe that my heart wouldn't be torn in Free Agency and now the Vikings are talking to T.J. and Cutler is demanding trades in Denver and I feel like my heart is destined to be broken with neither wearing the purple and gold. If the Vikings internally are thinking that they can't go after Cutler because of the Rosefels transaction they are idiots.

    There is no chance Cutler will end up in Minnesota. I just can't let myself believe that. Us Midwesterners have to temper our dreams for the Sages of the world.
