Default McDaniels: I'll take care of it

McDaniels: I'll take care of it
By Mike Chambers
The Denver Post

New Broncos coach Josh McDaniels met with his team for the first time this morning as a group and addressed his ongoing feud with quarterback Jay Cutler, who did not attend the meeting and has asked to be traded.

"He said, "I'll take care of it,' and that's pretty much it," said defensive lineman Kenny Peterson. "(As players), you can't control it. You got to control what you can control.

"Let them handle that. My job is to play D-Line and that's it. I don't know the ramifications of what's going on with that. It's a business. Let them handle it, let (management) deal with it."

Peterson said players were eager to begin workouts this week for their new coaches.

"Definitely exciting, definitely you can see the changes, along the walls, the new faces in the locker room. New beginning. Day One."

As for what McDaniels talked about, Peterson said, "Just his philosophy of how he's going to conduct things and what he expects of us as players. Pretty much the basics. He's the head coach. He could be 20, 40, 50, 60 years old, he's the head coach, and he's going to get the respect. He's very methodical, very articulate. I have nothing but respect for him."

Veteran cornerback Andre' Goodman, recently signed as a free agent, said McDaniels asked the players not to talk about what he said in the meeting about Cutler.

As for the controversy in general, with Cutler trying to force a trade after feeling disrespected, he said, "This is nothing new for me. I'm not shocked that a lot is going on, because every team in the league is adjusting. For me, it's not big deal."

He did add, however, that not having Cutler around is a big issue.

"The quarterback is the face of the team," Goodman said. "When you take the coach out of it, (the QB) is the face of the team. Everybody will tell you it starts with the quarterback."

He said it's up to the players to not be distracted by what's happening between McDaniels and Cutler.

"It's only hard if you allow it to be hard," he said. "If you're a professional you don't allow it to be hard. It's all about the approach you take as individuals."

McDaniels told The Denver Post Sunday night that he wants to talk to Cutler further before considering a trade.

"I would like to talk to Jay before we go on and start to discuss some other type of alternative," McDaniels said. "In the last couple weeks, we've been all about trying to communicate and resolve his unhappiness with what happened which we understand and that's been our direction."

The Fan just said Scheffler was at the meeting but elected not to work out. Interesting.

"I'll take care of it"

Because I am 32, a 1st time HC, and was outcoached in the SB.

Careful... I got neg-repped for posting essentially the same thing (that McD's efforts to talk to Cutler haven't done much so far except to exacerbate the problems).

Sounds to me they told him the deal, told him no one is above the team, they will listen to any offer to make the team better, and that they aren't going to trade him. Cutler is throwing a fit because they won't treat him special.

Can't see where McD went wrong with it, EXCEPT, how he handled the initial fallout and the time between the report and this weekend. But to me its Cutler who is making this the mess it is.

Reading that article you can just tell this is a locker room on the brink of mutiny. McDaniels' days are numbered; they want justice for Jay!

McDaniels is the one who lied here, I'd be pissed too. Imagine if your company merged with a bigger one, and you got a new boss. They are laying people off left and right, but the new boss calls you in and tells you your the star of the company and they want you to be the next in command and start things off on the right track. They say they want you around for years to come and even give you a raise! Then you find out the next day they are interviewing for your job!? I'd be looking for a new job too. Who knows when you'll be out of work anyway and besides, you can't trust them! You people forget, this is a game to us, but it's his job! He makes his living doing this, and this guy just comes in and starts fuhking with his life! I'd be pissed too!

I think if the Cutler fiasco didn't happen you would find another reason to eventually knock the guy for his age. Is that your main issue with him?

Nope, his EGO is and "I'll TAKE CARE OF IT" cements it.

Think Apa, if he didn't have such a huge EGO this would not have gotten so out of hand.

His Ego is making Shanny's look small.

He had better keep time with Cutler who is stamping both his 25 year old feet.

Please Cutlers Ego is the one driving this. McD may have one but it pails to The HOF QBs(in his own mind) Ego.

That is a problem when you have a young team and a young HC, no one is there to change each others diapers.

Other than the fact Shanny was collecting his 3rd Lombardi when McDummy was a waterboy, I haven't heard anyone complain about his age.

Shanahan was young too, but he had a hell of alot more credentials before Denver RE-HIRED him.
