Default ? (Aikman's take on Cutler/McDaniels)

Troy Aikman on the Cutler trade...

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

Yet he’s still baffled by the falling out between Jay Cutler and new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, a rift that resulted in the young Pro Bowl quarterback being traded to Chicago.


“I just don’t get how it got to that point in such a short period of time,” Aikman said. “It seems to me that McDaniels had that in mind before he even got that job. That’s what was bizarre to me.”


Aikman wonders whether Broncos owner Pat Bowlen would’ve hired McDaniels had he known the coach wasn’t committed to building around Cutler.


“Maybe (Bowlen) did know it, I don’t know. But it was pretty obvious, based on the timing, that Josh McDaniels knew that he wasn’t real high on Cutler, if he’s trying to make a trade for Matt Cassel within his first few weeks on the job,” Aikman said. “Could Jay have handled it a little better? Yeah, I think maybe he could have. But I certainly don’t begrudge him for being as upset as he was.”

Aikman's response is more lucid and realistic than just about every take I have read on orangemane.

Troy Aikman with a sensible, logical take on the situation. Good post, and difficult to argue with, although I'm sure the McPantywaist crew will find ways

Figures.

Why is every sports outlet so desperate to get Aikman's opinion? Talk about a guy who knows nothing about this franchise and its players...


Guess he just couldn't resist whipping out his sausage.

No, it is not sensible and logical, because Aikman makes the assumption that McDaniels TRIED to trade Cutler, rather than just being approached by offers and listening. Yeah, yeah...I know McDaniels lied about that, never mind the utter lack of evidence and the fact that Belichek has pretty much confirmed McDs version (yeah, he lied about it too---never mind the fact that he has nothing to gain by doing so).

An opinion based from knowing nothing about the situation. typical.

Yeah, real "lucid and realistic", especially given that he admits he knows little about the situation.

No mention that Cutler asked for a trade before McDaniels came on board.

Yeah. IF King is right that Jay demanded a trade prior to the trade fiasco (I'm not convinced he is, but King seems adamant about it), the timeline was that it happened after Bates was sent packing. That didn't happen until McDaniels was on board.

Except that is completely wrong.

McDaniels met with Cutler almost as soon as getting the job and that first meeting was exciting for both of them. McDaniels and Cutler were both excited to see what the offense could become with cutler.

McDaniels didnt come in thinking to get rid of Cutler, at all. Thats a retarded assertion from a retarded concussed former QB.

you people just dont get it. McDaniels listened to offers, one was a three way trade for Jay cutler. McDaniels may or may not have pursued that offer but he is OBLIGATED to at least listen to it. Cutler felt slighted because in his stupid ass ****ing mind he thinks he is a great QB (he is not great but he thinks he is and he is aided by the slack jawed yokels in Denver who think he is too) and is untradable.

Cutler is a ****ing choker and Im glad he is gone.

Get over it you piece of **** loser.
