Denver QB Jay Cutler Asks to Be Traded; Chiefs Fans Laugh

I forget where I read it but someone described this Jay Cutler/Josh McDaniels temper tantrum fight as the gift that keeps on giving, referring to each and every twist of this story that was like turning a knife in the Broncos wound. First, Cutler was angry because he thought the Broncos were trying to trade him. Then they said they weren't. Then Cutler and McDaniels met face to face and both came away with completely different perspectives on the situation.

And now, after a lot of "Cutler said/McDaniels said", Denver quarterback Jay Cutler has asked to be traded. Anyone else just love watching this team go down in flames?

Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler has formally asked to be traded, a request he made Sunday through his agent, Bus Cook.

For now, the Broncos are hoping to appease Cutler's concerns and reach an understanding so they do not have to trade him, coach Josh McDaniels told The Denver Post on Sunday night.

The real problem behind all of this? New Denver head coach wanted current Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel instead of Jay Cutler to be the Denver QB (Peter King breaks this feud down in his MMQB article this morning).

We weren't in there but about 20 minutes, (McDaniels) did most of the talking, and as far as I'm concerned, he made it clear he wants his own guy. He admitted he wanted Matt Cassel because he said he has raised him up from the ground as a quarterback. He said he wasn't sorry about it.

Am I ever glad we got the Scott Pioli, the experienced professional out of New England, and not the in-over-his-head first time NFL head coach. 

Just wait. This story will get even better. Now we have two AFC West teams that are disintegrating before our very eyes (The Raiders have been disintegrating for years already). Check out Mile High Report for more on this story.
