Adopt-a-Bronco:
Mr. Bruton
Default McDaniels learns from his mistakes

I've been critical of McD here and there, but I'm really glad to see he seems to be learning from his mistakes:
Quote:

Scheffler, Moss stay. While the Broncos' second-round selection of tight end Richard Quinn seemed to lift Tony Scheffler to the trading block, the truth is the 260-pound Quinn more closely resembles the playing style of Daniel Graham.

With Scheffler making $535,000 this season and Graham scheduled to make $3.2 million, could it be that the Broncos look to move Graham? Not likely. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels thinks so much of Graham, he called the veteran before the draft to inform him of the team's interest in Quinn.

A former Patriot, Graham figures to be a leader McDaniels can ill-afford to lose from his locker room.

Great judgment...he reserved the upfrontness and honesty for the blocking TE but not the franchise QB. I don't care that he "learned", who gives a ****? He needed that months ago, not after the fact. That he finally learned it doesn't bring Cutler back, so I couldn't care less what he learned.

I haven't ever heard a single thing negative about his player-relations, aside from one malcontent who didn't want to be in Denver. The entire team sounds almost giddy about this upcoming season.

So, I'm not sure what he had to learn about. Has anyone heard Graham complaining about a TE being drafted?

Of course not. He's a pro.

I don't see how this shows him repairing a mistake. So he spoke to Graham about a TE? Was he not speaking to Graham before?

They got inquiries for Jarvis Moss, but couldn't (according to another report) trade him for a 7th rounder

The article mentions one post draft bronco free agent signing - anybody hear of others?

I guess that Dan Graham is pretty important! Moreso than Cutler, that's fo sho.

Some people still don't understand that Cutler wanted out before the trade rumors even started. In fact (yeah this is going to sound like a light rail story) but here it goes.

A friend of mine that I lost touch with just visited my house. His family is good friends with the Cutlers. Long story short as soon as Shanny was fired Cutler had already decided with his father that they were going to try and force a trade. The trade rumor was just icing on the cake.

It makes sense if you look at how Cutler played this thing with Bus cook.

It's all a moot point anyway but if you want to lay blame on Cutler leaving put it on Bowlen for firing Shanny and not McD for picking up the phone and doing his job entertaining trade calls.

That story is consistent with what Adam Schefter said in an interview on KOA Radio a few weeks ago - that WHOEVER the Broncos new head coach was that coach was going to have a problem with Cutler.

Even if his learning results in your favorite team being good?

And please don't insult my intelligence by responding with "getting rid of McD as soon as possible is the best thing for the franchise."

Probably because he didnt expect the franchise QB to be a huge b**** and figured he'd act like a professional

He's not supposed to be learning on the job, anyway. This is an elite job. Not a training ground.

He didn't offend the blocking TE, are we supposed to give him a medal now that he finally got a passing grade in Personal Relations 101? Great job, you learned something that's common sense.

Don't forget he also learned that Jay Cutler is a whiney b****.

I trust you completely, don't doubt you heard that for a minute.

But it would mean a heckuva lot more had he told you that BEFORE the blowup started.

Ahhh... so, if McD would have told Cuter that he was on the trade block, Jay would have been just swell with it and showed up to all the team workouts, huh?



As I've said, there's only one player in the league with a grievance against McDaniels, and his character is questionable, at best.

IMO Cutler wanted more money plain and simple. Only reason he has no decided to wait asking for a new deal in Chicago is because they now have to formulate a new plan. Probably play the yr out, hope it goes well, then demand new deal next yr. With next yr uncapped without a new CBA Cutler could score big. Or Bears could say nope 2 more yrs still left on deal and make him play it out. That could result in a Cutler holdout.
