Cutler(s) put Denver home up for sale
The Denver Broncos disgruntled pro bowl quarterback, Jay Cutler, has just shown another sign that he doesn't want to be in Denver.
And no, this is not a re-post. This is an ongoing story that will not stop until Jay Cutler is traded. According to the Denverpost, Jay Cutler's parents home is up on the market. The house is selling for $835,000.
Now as I said before, us spectators may be looking a little too far into this. But after further consideration, yeah, no. There is no outside the box to this situation. What you see is what you get. It is what it is. I'm going to say it's pretty safe to assume that Denver Broncos QB Jay Cutler has played his last game as a Denver Bronco, and the Broncos are going to have some extra draft picks on the weekend of April 25th and 26th to help shore up a defense that needs it.
Which brings me to this.
Before all you Denver fans get upset, frustrated, and start a mob headed for Josh McDaniels office. You have to realize what this situation is indirectly doing to the Denver Broncos team. As much as it seems that he is ruining it, he's not.
If we trade Cutler, and we bring in a guy like, oh, I don't know, let's say... Aaron Curry(the top LB prospect in this years draft out of Wake Forest), or B.J. Raji (the best defensive linemen prospect in this years draft out of Boston College), do you realize the ramifications it would have on the defense?
With Curry, the Broncos would get a young presence in the middle of the defense that would bring a fierce, versatile style of play, along with irreplaceable vocal leadership qualities that you can't find in just any player. Curry can play both OLB in a 3-4, and a 4-3, which is exactly what the Broncos need. Not only would he impact the defense alone, but he'd make others around him better. Most noteably, Broncos LB, D.J. Williams. We'd finally get to see Williams with a supporting cast, we'd finally get to see the developed veteran LB at his best. We saw the potential in his rookie year, when he was playing at his natural LB position at the WILL(Weakside), and playing next to Broncos great, Al Wilson.
Curry brings that back.
And just think of this lineup in a 4-3. Williams - Davis - Curry
And now this lineup, in a 3-4. Dumervil/Moss - Davis - Williams - Curry
That has the potential to be very, very dangerous.
So now let's talk about B.J. Raji. What would he do for the defense? Well, he'd become the Broncos 3-4 NT that they crucially need if they want to have any chance at running the 3-4 scheme. Not to mention, they'd have a great 4-3 DT as well. Raji can do it all. Very athletic, and would create a disruptive presence, that would allow the second level of defenders(The LBs), to come in a make plays.
Either way, the Broncos can't go wrong with either of these two men. But if we had the #1 pick through a Cutler trade, and we'd have the ability to take either, or? I'd take Curry in a heartbeat.
But back to the Cutler situation, I'm going to leave it at this...
I don't think Josh McDaniels signed QB Chris Simms earlier this month, to be a backup QB.
There will be a deeper analysis in a video later this afternoon.
