Cutler's Ride

drew1128toon.gif

And so it begins. Cutler get his turn and Plummer takes his place in holding the clipboard. It's going to be an interesting end to the season.

For me, it's going to be a bit like losing Richard Nixon. Plummer had become an easy target especially this season with Cutler breathing down his neck. I'll miss Jake. But I'm sure I'll manage a few more cartoons about him before he rides off into the sunset.

Cutler's task will not be an easy one. There are plenty of problems on offense that go far beyond the Quarterback position. That said, I think the Broncos will be better off in making this move. Maybe not this season because I don't think they have what it takes to be a Super Bowl contender in their present state. Give them an off season of draft picks and free agents (running back, defensive end, wide receiver) and a half of a season under Cutler's belt and they will be primed to make a real run in 2007. I'm not sure even Elway could salvage the rest of this season. But who knows, Jay might surprise us.

    Speaking of rides, as a previous Jake supporter, it`s been difficult to stay loyal when looking to the sidelines. Who wants to ride in a Honda with a Ferrari sitting in the driveway!?

    Changing NFL QB's mid-season is much like changing jobs in the same profession. Consider this a Bronco “2 weeks notice” but don't expect much of a difference until wholesale changes are made…

    My question is what happens if Jay has no more success than Jake? Putting a rookie in with only five games to go when you are int he middle of playoff battle is not usually considered the best move. I guess here is hoping Cutler turns into this years Ben Rothlesberger (minus the motorcycle...)

    Drew, classic toon... I Love It.

    Cutler is in a GREAT position. He is expected to win, but will be given a VERY WIDE BERTH in the event he doesnt win. If he does win, he is the hero.

    I just want to see him launch the ball 80+ yards down the field...that will get people talking...

    I'm going to play the bad guy, and state that we should all expect a very average at best evening from Cutler.

    I see maybe a 16-30, 170-some yards, 0 touchdowns, 2 inteceptions (both on long pass attempts), and I see him getting sacked a few times.

    The running game will continue to fail. I see maybe 60-80 yards on the ground.

    Seattle wins 27-15. Elam is the only one to score.

    Just a prediction.
