Default Jay still not answering McD

Sorry if this has been posted:

DANA POINT, CALIF. Josh McDaniels may be saying Jay Cutler is his quarterback, but Cutler is not ready to call McDaniels his coach.

According to an NFL source, McDaniels sent a text message to the disgruntled Cutler before arriving here at the owners meetings. Cutler did not respond.

Cutler, who finished the past three seasons as the Broncos' starting quarterback, has formally requested a trade primarily because he's at odds with McDaniels.

McJaygate began when McDaniels attempted to deal Cutler on Feb. 28 in a proposed three-team swap that would have brought former New England quarterback Matt Cassel to the Broncos. McDaniels was New England's offensive coordinator and Cassel's coach last season. Cassel was instead dealt to Kansas City.

Although Cutler has said he understood McDaniels willingness to acquire his former pupil, he has come to distrust his coach. Two conversations between Cutler and McDaniels since the proposed trade have only aggravated the disagreement.

McJaygate has captivated the NFL nation as it pits a 32-year-old inexperienced coach in McDaniels against a young star quarterback in Cutler, who set a team record last season by passing for 4,526 yards.

Cutler skipped McDaniels' first team meeting last Monday and has yet to appear for the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program.

Cutler's trade request is serious enough that he's forfeiting a $100,000 workout bonus. More than 10 teams have contacted the Broncos, either through e-mail, text or phone call, to at least inquire about Cutler's availability.

McDaniels has shunned the Denver Post here at the owners meetings, deciding instead to interview with the NFL Network here Monday morning. In that interview, McDaniels said of Cutler, "he's our quarterback." McDaniels will be available for all media here Tuesday morning at the annual AFC coaches' breakfast.

It's possible the next watershed moment in McJaygate is April 17-19, when the Broncos hold a mandatory minicamp. If Cutler doesn't attend, the Broncos may step up efforts to acquiesce his trade request before the NFL Draft begins the following week.

It's funny how the preferred method of communication between players/coaches/reporters is the text message. And Jay, it wouldnt kill you to answer it./

A number of coaches and athletes I know only communicate through text now. It's bizarre as hell.

And with this - Jay, answer the ****ing text, you p***Y.

I call BS.

Once again, it's a random "source" and not McDaniels or Cutler verifying any of this.

It matters what the message is.

Jay I am going to give you a call after the owners meeting to set up some face to face time.

or

Baby come back, you can blame it all on me. I was wrong, and I just can't live without you.

How dare you.

Don't you know what Jay has ben through? You think he's got the emotional strength left it requires to push several buttons on his cell phone?

He's devastated. You're an unfeeling bastard to even ask such a thing.

McD blew this in the beginning but, Jay's lack of maturity is showing again and again. I'd have no problem making millions and being brought up in surprise trade talks. Why can't he respond with trade me at least.

I don't know what to believe anymore. If Jay is still unhappy why isn't Jay demanding a trade again. They should sit down a resolve this one way or another.

I think the local outlets are pissed in general because the Broncos and Cutler have been going to ESPN and NFL Network over them.

I wonder if this is why McDaniels is commenting to the media. He's trying to reach out. I kind of enjoy this.

For those who have gone "all in" with McDaniels, yes. Because whenever an unsubstantiated claim comes out in their favor, then it is fact. Turn it around, however, and they want a full, written report with first party quotes and certified as accurate by the league Comissioner before they'll even entertain the notion that it might be true.

That could be part of the problem. Cutler probably added McDaniels' # to his junk/spam folder.

I don't think it's totally out of the realm of possibility with how thing's have been going that this would happen.

It's not anything ground breaking...more like status quo.

Txt messaging! Wow, thats showing a lot of f'n effort. I can't believe Jay isn't responding to this!!

I think it is more and more likely the Broncos are going to call his bluff and wait it out until "mandatory" sessions start. This is a PR battle, and this would then lean towards the Broncos if Jay doesn't show. I don't see any reason to pull the trigger on a trade until then
