The Cutler Trade That Wasn't

Cutler has not shown the ability to manage a game and as funny as it seems that you would decry a guy who is a prototypical guy at the position physically for not being a "game manager", it's exactly that deficiency in his game that is keeping him from becoming a great quarterback.

The story of the three way trade that almost went down involving Denver quarterback Jay Cutler is astounding if only because of the number of teams that seemingly think Jay Cutler is worthy of being traded for. Jay Cutler? Seriously? The kid has been in Denver for three years now and he's definitely plateaued. That's not a good thing. Sure, he has the tools but that's not enough. Cutler has not shown the ability to manage a game and as funny as it seems that you would decry a guy who is a prototypical guy at the position physically for not being a "game manager", it's exactly that deficiency in his game that is keeping him from becoming a great quarterback. Obviously, the Lions and Buccaneers think they can refine his game. I'm dubious that he will ever get there. The interesting thing is that now that this hornet's nest has been poked, it would certainly seem that Cutler has played his last down in Denver.
