Default Extending Cutler now.

Burger-and-fries Bill suggested in his quaint (by that I mean largely dumb) article that Denver should extend Cutler now. (Discuss that article in particular here).

I'm curious what the mane thinks of this as a means of mending some fences. What will it cost? Is it even remotely realistic? How far would it go to repairing the relationship between Cutler and the Front Office?

(Poll coming.)

I voted Yes

It proves your backing up your no trade stance to Cutler words won't do it now.

If he plays well this season, extend him. Right now I wouldn't.

Jay needs to prove he can play in this system first, and win games to deserve an extension.

If we make the playoffs this year or he plays like he did last year then extend him.

Do you guys seriously think that Cutler can't play in McDs system as good if not better than Cassel did?

I don't think Cutler will have a problem with the system.

Isn't Cutler the one who has been working with Mc since the Pro Bowl on learning the new system? On HIS free time? Then almost gets shipped outta town for his troubles?

But he's a baby? We should reward him for not tellin' Mc to eat **** and die, and tellin' McDouche to have fun with Chris Sims.

Agreed, No one should be extended until they prove themselves adaptable to the new Regime's system.

I don't think Cutler will have a problem with the system.
I don't think he'll have a problem with the system either, but he does need to prove that he can be the leader of this football team.

To me there are some serious questions that have arisen regarding whether Cutler is coachable. Before I extended his contract he would need to prove that he can handle all the responsibilities of a franchise QB.

And on a simply pragmatic note we should wait until we know whether there's going to be a salary cap in the future.

This illustrates the apparently unending dumbassery of this regime. The smart coach is the one that adapts his style and system to his players, not imposes something from some ivory tower. This is why its also stupid for them to be shopping Scheffler. He's a near pro bowl quality recieving tight end. If the Patriots offense doesn't really utilize recieving tight ends then the answer is to change the Patriots offense accordingly. McDaniels does not have a monopoly on wisdom. He's just a 32 year old kid. That's all he is. That he's insisting on a square peg when he might have some round holes illustrates his immaturity and stupidity and lack of basic competence.

It's clear it's going to be the Patriot Way or the HWY under McDaniels. Stupid or not, that's just the way of it. The onus to adapt and change is on the players, not the coach and his schemes.

Yes Culter was coming in to learn the system and hang with the new coaching staff on his own time.

He does deserve some blame, though, for being naive. He should have known better than to make a good faith attempt to work with snakes. They're snakes for a reason.

Actually the OC and position coaches should be one telling the Head Coach, what if we do this instead. Right now it seem McKid is only listening to himself and Kidd.

As much as I like Cutler, there are too many warning flags to merit an extension:

1. His health. I actually think that his diabetes causes more problems for him during games than is acknowledged. And diabetes-related health issues only deepen over time.

2. His immaturity. He's not a rookie any longer. And yet he pouts and sulks and whines like one. (And apparently parties like one.) He needs to show that he's a leader on the field and off.

3. His decision making in games. Again, he's not a rookie. Yet he makes too many rookie mistakes, particularly in the Red Zone.

4. His ego. It's entirely too big, given what he's accomplished in the league thus far. A little humility would serve him well.

This is shaping up to be a make-or-break year for Jay. If he grows up and plays well and manages his health and wins, then he'll put himself in a position for a nice contract extension. If not, he'll be gone next season. And deservedly so.

I know folks are blaming Cutler, but when Stokely comes out and bash them for releasing Leach, it tells you something about our new coach and how he operates.

If the rest of the Belicheat ex-coach act this way, no wonder they are failures.

I'd give Cutler a year in "the system" to see how it goes. If he is on the right track and performing reward him, if not we still have a couple years to find the right fit and get some trade value. To this point jay has shown the skills and upside to be the quarterback we need long term but certainly not the leadership or mental stability needed in that position.

Perhaps that's what Pat needs to realize what he threw away. Perhaps he needs to feel what real failure feels like, not .500 failure. REAL failure.

Maybe that's what he really needs.

Well...."that" and a clinic.
