“I’m upset. I mean I’m really shocked at this point I could see why they want Cassel. I don’t know if they think I can’t run the system or I don’t have the skills for it. I just don’t get it. Or if they don’t think they can sign me with my next contract. I just don’t know what it is. I’ve heard I’m still on the trading block.”
As quick as I was to jump on the Tyler Thigpen bandwagon, I friggin hi-jumped on the Jay Cutler bandwagon.
Of course, then Vaughn McClure of The Trib went out of his way to tear down this blog before I could even get it started:
Although ESPN reported that an irate Jay Cutler wanted to be traded, don't expect anything to happen with the Denver Broncos quarterback and the Chicago Bears.
ESPN's Bill Williamson listed Chicago as a possible destination. But Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, told the Tribune he has heard nothing about any connection between his client and the Bears.
The Broncos and their quarterback are at odds. The Bears do not have a quarterback.
And this, from McClure again, will always puzzle me about the Monstrosity of the Midway.
The Bears might bring in a veteran backup behind Kyle Orton, but it is highly unlikely they would trade for a bonafide starter such a Cutler. The organization already has expressed great support for Orton and doesn't want to betray him.
Don't know who Sid Luckman is? Kids, open your history books. Not those new, shiny books. I'm talking about the old ones falling apart at the seams.
Yeah, that one.
