No! No Cutler you idiot! He's a head case and he forces too many passes for interceptions. With their running game and offensive line you don't need Cutler. What good is selling tickets if you can't win?
Wallace rule #1 for a writer is write what you know about. You obviously know nothing about football. Please stick to writing about basket weaving or matchbox cars.

Hey Wally,
Aren't you the genius who wrote that the Mets just "had" to get A-ROID when he was a free agent out of Seattle?
Face it, you don't sh_i_t about sports or the players that play in it.
Stick to what you do best, which is complaining about something sports related. That's all you're good for. Your knowledge of players is clearly not up to par. You think you would have realized that by now.
HACK!

Sorry guys, he's right.

Cutler is a competent starting quarterback. Not great, compentent. Probably 1 of 24 currently in the league. With 32 teams, you do the math. When a competent quarterback is available, you get him. You don't leave your future on the hopes that Kellen Clemens develops.

I am one of the first to rip Matthews for his terrible articles. However, this article is spot on. I absolutely agree with Wally that the Jets should do whatever it takes to get Cutler, if he is to get traded. Cutler is a franchise quarterback, hands down. He is only 25 years old. If the Jets got Cutler and picked up a wide receiver (Torry Holt), they would immediately be a team to reckon with and have to be considered a legitimate threat to New England in the division. With a revamped defense and Cutler calling the shots, the Jets would be very tough to beat. Cutler's career record is only 17-20, but Denver hasn't had a defense since they won back to back Superbowls. That's not Cutler's fault. Go get him Jets, do the right thing for your fans.

Cutler is the BEST QB that is "available". In the draft, most GM's take the Best player "available" whether you need that position or not. Take Cutler, the QB's in house now are unproven, and with all of the FA's brought in last year, the team is built to win now, not in 2012.

Ya know Matthews, your just waiting for the Jets to sign him so you can say it was a waste of money. The first time he throws an interception, you will nail him to a cross and berate the Jets GM and HC.

Wow more brillance from the mind of Wally here. For the Jets good luck on selling the Broncos Kellen Clemens as there QB for 2009. For this trade to work the Jets need to get a third team involved with a serviceable QB. Cleveland's Derek Anderson or Arizona's Matt Leinert. Cleveland sends Anderson to Denver also gets Vernon Gohlston from the Jets , Cleveland gets the Jets first rounder, and a fourth rounder in 2009+ and Denver gets a conditional pick in 2010 on Cutlers performance and the Jets recieve Cutler. Its a high price for the Jets but thats how it will work

Get real
This kids a cry baby. You actually think he wouldn't melt like Ryan Leaf under the pressure in NY, and the relentless NY media.
He's got a strong arm, whoopdeedoo.
Good and great QB's lead their teams to wins.
Marino never had a great D, but he consistently won,a nd was consistently in the playoffs.
Matt Ryan, didn't have a great D, but he managed to get his team into the playoffs.
Winners win, that's all there is to it. And this kid hasn't shown he is a winner yet, and with his crybaby attitude, he never will.
This would go down as one of the dumbest moves the Jets ever did if they went after this headcase. The fans and media would be all over him if he went through a bad streak and then what? He'll demand to be traded again? Scr-ew that. He's wayyyyy more trouble then he's worth.

Sorry but Glauber is the one who has it right, NOT WALLY!

Matthew's is such an idiot.
Who are the Jets going to give up for Cutler...Draft picks?
If Denver's going to trade Cutler, they are going to want a QB in return. I don't see the interest in Clemons. There aren't going to be any "franchise QB's" where the Jets will be drafting.
It makes no sense for Denver to trade him to the Jets.
Since when did common sense and Wally Matthews ever go together?

Please do not get this guy. He is so thin skinned that New York would eat him alive. This is not the first time this guy has thrown a temper tantrum because someone said something he did not like. He is also the moron who said he just as good as John Elway but that he had a better arm then Elway. Can you imagine someone coming after Namath had just retired and claimed he was nothing compared to what the new guy was going to accomplish. It's one thing to have confidence in yourself it's another to disrespect the legends that you would hope to replace. This guy is a blowhard with a me first attitude. Sure he is a pretty good QB but he still only has a .500 winning percentage and that was playing for one of the best QB head coaches there is in Mike Shanahan. I say go into the pre-saeson workouts and evaluate what we have and if worse comes to worse there is always a guy like Jeff Garcia or Byron Leftwhich out there on the free agent market. Do not give up any first rounders for this head case. The Jets did not finish 9-7 last year only because of Favre. Out secondary was terrible and the pass rush non existent. We need some more young studs on defense and a breakaway wideout. It has already been proven that you can be very successful without a great QB, he just has to be a good field manager. You know like a guy like Pennington.

"You can sit back and watch Mike Tannenbaum waste them on another bust who will never amount to anything..."

Yep, another bust like Darrelle Revis or Nick Mangold or Leon Washington or D'Brickashaw.

Tannenbaum's track record isn't perfect (whose is?), but he's drafted some pro bowlers.

You people that want CUTLER with the JETS are MORONS! Do you people want ANOTHER FAVRE!!!???? Why are JETS and JETS fans always wanting some one ELSE players, instead of OUR OWN? At some point you have find out what your YOUNG QBs can do! What would the JETS have to GIVE UP, to get CUTLER anyway? Way too much probably.

I find you trade scenario intriguing. I'd throw in Clemens as well.

"You can sit back and watch Mike Tannenbaum waste them on another bust who will never amount to anything."

I can't believe they wasted their picks on:

Ferguson
Mangold
Washington
Revis
Harris
Keller

So because Gholston did nothing in his rookie year, that means Tannenbaum can't draft? Moron.
