THE BRONCOS GET WHITE-GLOVE TREATMENT FROM THE MEDIA.

From Ed Hatem of Richland, Wash.: "Don't you think the Broncos, as an organization, has gotten an incredible pass from the media considering the bungles of the last two years. Consider the fact that two years ago Jay Cutler struggled through an entire season because the team doctors couldn't figure out the man had diabetes. These are the same doctors and nutritionists who apparently let the team lose a tremendous amount of weight over the course of last season. [Cutler gets traded, then] we have another player who wants out and the coach says it's not going to happen even while the owner is saying he is going to try to help facilitate a trade. Now, I understand it was en vogue to bash Cutler... but isn't Denver's free pass in this about up? Is this organization in disarray and the media is just being polite about it?''

Polite? Maybe I'm not reading enough, but the Broncos got bashed in at least half of the post-Cutler-trade columns I read, and I've heard plenty of media people who've said the Broncos would be setting a terrible precedent by trading Brandon Marshall. There are several issues here, but the basic one is this: It's fair to argue the Broncos didn't give the Cutler fire a chance to die down before dealing him, and it's more fair (to me, anyway) to argue that the team would be making a huge mistake in agreeing to trade Marshall because of the bad precedent it would set for any dissatisfied players in the future. Overall, I'm not sure you can kill the Broncos now because we don't know how the decisions are going to work out. But I think if Mrshall is dealt and the team goes 3-13, they deserve all the criticism you can muster. - Peter King

Better than the latex glove treatment, I suppose.

That guy must not be reading the same articles people are posting on the Mane. Because it seems to me that at least 80 or 90% of the mainstream media articles are absolutely killing the Broncos and McDaniels over this offseason...

The one point he brings up that I completely agree with is the one about the training/medical staff on the team. The evidence is anecdotal, but it is strong. In the past few years, there have been eyebrow-raising situations that make me question if we have the right guys there.

Should every team each offseason get 50% positive and 50% negative write ups?

Or do the actions of a team generally provide the content for the tone of articles.

Absolutely not. Where did I say that?

The question you posted was about the Broncos receiving "white glove treatment", which (in my opinion) is absurd. The response from the media to this offseason has been overwhelmingly negative. How is that white glove treatment?

Nah...only teams that go 6-26 and lose more games than the Detroit Lions over the last two seasons.
