Josh McDaniels to Trade Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler Pictures, Images and Photos

Mark my words.

Jay Cutler will not be the long term answer for the Denver Broncos. He may last a year, maybe two, but I ultimately see him leaving. Everyone here agrees the kid is a stud on the field, but time after time he has shown immaturity and a real lack of professionalism off. And who cares about the trade..I'm referencing back to Shanahan days.

Mike Shanahan left Josh McDaniels with a Quarterback that basically can do whatever he pleased without consquence. Bret Farve no. 2 in every since of the word. McDaniels has already shown he is not playing after cutting Dre Bly and 5 defensive starters along with him.

And to those that say "fire the coach!" it won't happen. Too much dead money is tied up in Travis Henry and Mike Shanahan right now. On top of that Pat Bowlen is a guy that in the past has let "masterminds" work independently and judged by the results.

So ask yourself this:

Can the stern, by the book coach and the unorthodox gunslinger Quarterback co-exist?

Personally, I dont think this marriage isn't going to last long.

Chase hit that magical 6' mark in his combine measurements. Some team will take him in the 6th round this April and get a serviceable backup. (New Orleans?)

Andre Smith Walks Out NFL Combine

Andre smith Pictures, Images and Photos

Andre Smith, are you serious? You don't walk out the biggest job interview of your life. The reports say that he walked out due to wanting to get a jump on training. I don't understand this. For the last two months you knew the combine was coming up, and you wait until AFTER it starts to get in shape? Smart one 'Dre. Real Smart.

First Mock of 09!

Couple of days before the combine:

2. St. Louis - Eugene Monroe OT, Virgina

3. Kansas City - Michael Crabtree WR, Texas Tech

4. Seattle - Andre Smith OT, Alabama

5. Cleveland - Beanie Wells RB, Ohio State

6. Cincinnati - Knowshon Moreno RB, Georgia

7. Oakland - Jeremy Maclin WR, Missouri

8. Jacksonville - Aaron Curry LB, Wake Forest

9. Green Bay - BJ Raji DT, Boston College

10. San Francisco - Mark Sanchez QB, USC

11. Buffalo - Brian Orakpo DE, Texas

12. Denver - Rey Maualuga LB, USC

13. Washington - Jason Smith OT, Baylor

14. New Orleans - Everette Brown LB/DE, Florida State

15. Houston - Sean Smith S, Utah

16. San Diego - Tyson Jackson DE, LSU

17. NY Jets - Vontae Davis CB, Illinois

18. Chicago - Darrius Heyward-Bey WR, Maryland

19. Tampa Bay - Peria Jerry DT, Ole Miss

20. Detroit (Dallas) - Michael Oher OT, Ole Miss

21. Philadelphia - Brandon Pettigrew TE, Oklahoma State

22. Minnesota - Josh Freeman QB, Kansas State

23. New England - Aaron Maybin LB/DE, Penn State

24. Atlanta - Ron Brace DT, Boston College

25. Miami - James Laurinaitis LB, Ohio State

26. Baltimore - Clay Matthews LB, USC

27. Indianapolis - Hakeem Nicks WR, UNC

28. Philadelphia (Carolina) - Eben Britton OT, Arizona

29. NY Giants - Larry English LB/DE, Northern Illinois

30. Tennessee - Percy Harvin WR, Florida

31. Arizona - Max Unger OL, Oregon

32. Pittsburgh - Alex Mack C/OG, Cal


Sean Smith the top rated safety over Delmas right now.

I won't have SF picking a QB next mock, they seem bent to try a free agent.

I personally would take Brown over Rey, but I have no idea if Denver wants a OLB or a ILB. Free agency should fill some gaps and make it clearer.

Matt Cassel Will Be the Lions Starting QB in 2009

I'm calling this now.

The Lions will send the #20 overall (their 2nd first rounder) and a fourth rounder to New England for Matt Cassel.

With the #1 overall they will select Eugene Monroe or Andre Smith to protect him. They can then grab an offensive player to spice it up with Kevin Smith, Calvin Johnson, and Cassel and focus on drafting new defensive players.

You heard it here first... Cassel to the Lions.
