Default Cutler wants say in final roster

HAHA, you guys should be rejoicing about this guy being gone. He is the biggest primadonna and whiner in the league.

Cutler wants say in final roster

Posted by Mike Florio on August 13, 2009 8:22 AM ET

And so as the last quarterback who mistakenly believed that his job duties included the functions of a General Manager fades (we think) into the Mississippi sunset, a new candidate for player-executive emerges.

Jay Cutler.

Cutler, per the Arlington Daily Herald, intends to give his input on the team's final roster.

"I think they're definitely going to ask me," Cuter said. "If they don't ask me, I'm going to tell them what I think because I've got to be the one throwing to them on game day, and I've got to trust them."

Look, the extent to which the starting quarterback and his receivers work together has to be a significant factor in shaping the depth chart. But there's a line, somewhere, that the quarterback shouldn't try to cross.

Publicly indicating that he intends to chime in on who should stay and who should go probably is on the other side of that line.

And if the Bears don't nip this in the bud, it won't stop with Cutler telling the media that he plans to tell the coaches which guys should be turning in their playbooks. What if they keep someone he doesn't want? Will Cutler make his feelings known outside the organization?

Or what if Cutler isn't happy with the offseason decisions that the franchise is making? Will he make like Lord Favre (and, to a certain extent, Donovan McNabb) and make his displeasure known?

Caveat emptor, Chicago. We know you wanted him, but just how closely were the powers that be paying attention to how this guy was behaving as he was trying to get out of Denver?

Yeah, I just praise God for the day that we dumped Cutler in favor of Orton.

So glad!

Yeah sure Buff, but they don't take the ego trip to the media like they own the joint. He's proposing a bold new front office structure there. When they're in the huddle, they're not just playing pitch and catch with their QB, that's their boss. Cutler will sign the paychecks someday, he's ahead of his time.

What? What new fo structure?

You guys and Florio can kid yourselves Jay is some kind of prima donna, but my eyes are wide open. Guy is a stud, period. Makes Leinart and VY look like jokes.

I wish I could look forward to saying "I told you so," but by then wtf will care?

If we only knew what Buff and Taco looked like in person...and oh yea, replace Battier with Cutler...



Seriously, Cutler could slap some poster's wife and they would get mad at their wife for getting in the way of his hand.

Probably but not many tell that to the media.

He should watch tapes of interviews by a QB like P. Manning who would have said something like: 'I trust the coaching staff to make the correct decisions on the roster'.

In all fairness, so does Kyle Orton.

And Buff, honestly, you don't see the problem with 1. how Cutler worded it and 2. the fact that he said it publicly?

I'd bet a damn kidney that by the end of his career Elway had a LOT of input in our offensive personnel, especially WRs, but he never came right out and said it. Hell, Peyton Manning is the defacto offensive coordinator in Indy and reporters around the team have alluded to it. Manning has been a massive dick at times in his career. He's never actually mentioned that publicly.

In legal terms this is the equivalent of you standing in front of the podium at a presser and saying "I don't care if my client might be guilty, I'm going to get his potentially murderous ass off. If he wants to go stab someone else again then so be it." Of course you'll try your best for a client even if they're scum, hell you might even say the rough equivalent of the above to your client or your colleagues. But you wouldn't say it publicly.

i think you need to review the list of super bowl champions. the vast majority didn't have "elite" qb's like orton heading up the roster.

While it is probably wrong of me, some part of me does enjoy things like this.

It makes me feel better about the direction of my team when I read articles like this. I feel as if our managements' decisions are to an extent vindicated. Not completely obviously but it certainly helps

Ummmmm.....since 2000 the SB's have been won by Franchise Qb's. Go Figure!

Denver will never win a SB with Orton.....plain and simple.

Drek I'm not sure I see a problem with what he said. He made no claim to having veto power, or even much influence ... in fact, I kinda like that a QB wants to give his input, to me it shows confidence and pro-active participation. His two cents is just two cents after all.

And too, he was responding to a direct question:

Quote:
"I think they're definitely going to ask me," Cuter said. "If they don't ask me, I'm going to tell them what I think because I've got to be the one throwing to them on game day, and I've got to trust them."

None of this matters though ... he's irrelevant to us now.

Which begs the question : Why did we let a nitwit Bolt fan start us up on this again?
