Default Cutler-Plummer Article

Didn't see this posted, apologies if already posted:

So now Jay Cutler is mad as hell and sure looks like he's not going to take it in Denver anymore. Great. Almost makes you wish the Broncos never disposed of Jake Plummer, huh?

Well, it does me. If ever there was a quarterback done wrong it was poor Jake. He didn't throw the tightest spiral. He took too many chances. And he threw unnecessary interceptions. He was booed at home, booed on the road and shredded weekly by the hometown media for his flaws. In short, he was embraced like the Avian flu.

So what's to like? This: He was 40-18 as a starter. All the guy did was win.

He took the Broncos to the playoffs in 2003. He did it again in 2004. He had them in the 2005 AFC Championship Game. Yet he was gone two seasons later, shuffled off to Tampa Bay to make way for Cutler, the second coming of John Elway.

With all the old baggage getting dug up, maybe this will end up cathartic.

In some sense I agree with the theme of the article in that Cutler needs to take the high road in this, however blaming the entire past season on him when the defense was terrible...I definitely do not agree with...

Yes but Cutler also had room to grow too. People talk about this juggernaut offense. They were great btw the 20's but they were average in points. Defense had most the blame but Cutler has room to grow. So yes he should shut up and play but its ok to criticize him too.
