Cutler shows he's no leader

Full story: Newsday

Had this been an April Fool's Day report, I'd have understood. But when word came down late Wednesday night that quarterback Jay Cutler now says he's surprised the Broncos have decided to trade him, and that he didn't want it to come to this, it signaled the latest bizarre development in a drama that has taken on Terrell Owens -like proportions.

A team's history is often misleading nowadays considering all the personnel changes---from the front office to coaching, etc. But I think about the Jets ignominious history coupled with the fact that they haven't taken a QB above Ken O' Brien's 23rd place in the first round since Richard Todd. Why does this team always think of QB as an afterthought...whether it's getting a retread (O' Donnell, Boomer) or just kindasorta draft one in the latter stages of Round 1 or 2 (Chad, Clemens)?

This Cutler thing's an issue. On the one hand, a team doesn't want a character like Cutler. But on the flip side, there's no one there that's better. I think that most fans and Rex sees this QB as either/or: trade for a "franchise" QB or go with some Ainge/Clemens thing in August. I say that they do neither: Get Jeff Garcia, trade up for a chance at Stafford and go from there with a Garcia with Clemens in 2009 and plan for Stafford for beyond.

But this is dangerous at Florham Park: Rex Ryan is clearly a defense guy and probably sees a lot more upside to drafting defensive players. He might (might) also think that with his defensive acumen, it won't matter much who's at QB. And that is why they won't even pursue Cutler and that'll he'll wind up in Tampa and we'll be stuck with Clemens/Ainge and some Patrick Ramsey character in the mix.

Cutler shows he's no leader, leaves lame Broncos to become one.
