McDaniels Talks on Cutler to NFLN Tonight

Posted by Eric Allen on March 23, 2009 – 6:04 pm

If you get NFL Network and have some free time tonight, you might want to tune in. On this evening’s installment of “Total Access” at 7 p.m. ET, network correspondent Scott Hanson’s exclusive interview with Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels will air.

And to nobody’s surprise, the two men will talk about Jay Cutler. To promote the segment, released a little tease this afternoon, a 1:22 video and an accompanying news story.

“He’s our quarterback, period,” McDaniels tells Hanson. “We can’t predict the future. He’s our quarterback, we want him to be our quarterback, we made that very clear to him and we hope he feels the same way.”

Cutler, who arguably owns the strongest arm in all of football, has requested that the Broncos trade him to another club. He was miffed that the Broncos had talks with New England about acquiring Matt Cassel before the Patriots shipped their 2008 interim starter to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The talented 25-year-old Cutler, who passed for 4,526 yards and 25 TDs last season, has a 17-20 record in his three years as a starter. Even though he’s never played a playoff game, he’s had a most impressive start to his career in completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 9,024 yards with 54 TDs and 37 INTs. In addition to his obvious throwing prowess, Cutler has very good feet and showed a propensity for moving well outside the pocket.

Citing multiple unnamed sources, the New York Daily News reported today that the Jets would have interest in trading for Cutler if he were on the market. But to this date, the Green & White have publically maintained that they feel good about the trio of quarterbacks on their roster, Kellen Clemens, Brett Ratliff and Erik Ainge.

    at 25 years old jay cutler and proven himself with impressive numbers……he could be a jet for a decade….and bring some stability to the position…….keep the option open…….also VICK is close to returning to the nfl.

    I love the idea of bringing in Cutler.. We havent had a “franchise” qb in a loooong time maybe since Todd.. With Cutlers age and arm we would be good for a long time at qb.. The d is coming along phenomenal o-line is imo the best in the league, running game is great, after cutler all we need is another wr and if all goes well Rex n the gang could just meet Obama.
    Do whatever it takes to land Jay

    Cutler is a winner. Clements is not. Do anything you can to get Cutler. Somehow, with no running backs, and a porous defense, Cutler was in every game last year (and beat the Jets, too). If you can pry him from the falling Broncos, it is an investment worth doing.

    Hey EA,I like the “citing multiple unnamed sources,the New York Daily News reported”. I have spoke to several higher ups in the white house this morning,who chose to go ananomous because they are not allowed to speak about it,But It is Confirmed that the Easter Bunny has assumed a role in the Pentagon.See,I can work for the Daily News!

    Good, we are built to win now, so lets get a franchise QB who has been proven. So long as Cutler doesn’t go Favre on us and doesn’t throw INTs, which shouldnt happen because he wont pass as much, I’m fine with this trade.

    EA, Whats happening my man? This Cutler story is amazing. Well just watched McDaniels and he looks like he had no confidence at all. And i wouldn’t trust him either. The NFL Network also reported that the Jets want in on the Cutler trade. I think the Cutler trade will happen within the next two weeks. And he will be a Jet. And Eric you’re right about his mobilty and he sees the entire field well.

    Here are some interesting #’s, Cutler was 100-167 for 1200yds and 11 TD’s and 4 INT’s in the 4th QT of games this year. And as of the 2nd QT of the Jets game this past year he had 14 TD’s and only 1 redzone INT. Lets give Lowery some credit. He did get his 1st INT vs Cutler.

    We need Jay Cutler because he is a proven player. The Pats will be stronger and the other clubs in our division will be stronger as well. If we are going to get to the “Big Game” we need a solid young QB. Our best option is Jay Cutler..

    Forget Cutler! Clemens can do this!Fill the small holes on the defense.Cushing 1st pick! Will back is what we need! Last year we could’nt cover anybody out of the backfield or tightends!Lock up Leon!TJ please dont hold out!!White 2nd pick!!!Build team to beat Pats up!!Best place for Tom Brady on his back on the field!!!Several times!!Go JETS!!!!

    CUTLER???? I hope CUTLER is not another BRETT FAVRE. Poor Kellen Clemens, Brett Ratliff. Kellen Clemens and Brett Ratliff are probably saying, here we go AGAIN! When will KELLEN CLEMENS and BRETT RATLIFF get their chance?

    I could see it now,a PSL commercial with Donald Trump walking down the tunnel in a fur coat again only this time with Jay Cutler,they look like father and son,They Already Have The Same Hair Style! PLEASE,I Do Not want to look at this guy after every Jet Game.Between his face and Eli Manning I might have to move out of state!

    I was the first to call this several weeks ago and have been consistant throughout Tanwoody needs to do whatever it takes to get Cutler he is a franchise QB not even in his prime yet. The O is going to be a disaster this year with the shaping up of another knucklehead contract issue with TJ, an inexperienced QB and a shaky O-Line. Cutler’s mobility and moxy will mask these shortcomings.

    I feel for #11 also but this is about winning and he cant do it, he will be beat out by ratliff in mini camps and for all those who remind us of #11 and 3rd stringers, dont hate the player he did what he was told and smoked them,thats the guy I want behind Jay Cutler.our division is loaded with star talent like us the difference is they all have solid QB’S its time for the jets to have that leader

    i hate to say it,but we might need cuttler or a garcia this year..
    if WE want to go to the playoffs,i dont think clemmens will ever be a franchise QB,and knowing rex ryan and tanwoody,you know theay want cuttler,i could tell
    by the talk going around that tanwoody and ryan do not have 100% faith in the 3 QB’S the jets have now,if theay did,theay wouldn’t be showing interest in cuttler

    this is simple JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN get the deal inked, cut the crap and lets get some wins in a row, if we dont we will be screaming ,kicking and clawing, for heads to roll” no team will fear /respect “us with KC or BR at the helm in 09 but Cutler and the New and Improved Defence. teams are going to worry.especially Belichek and the Tuna/Sporano.lets face it those teams will be a challenge in 09

    Frank, Shaky o-line? How can you say that. Their blocking led the offense to be the 9th leading rushing team in the league with an avg of 125.2 yds per game. They had the leading rusher in the AFC and the team totals 2004 yds rushing which isn’t anything to sneeze at. Oh and btw i said this team would rush for 1800-2000 yds last year. And Cutler most get done and will. GO JETS!!!!!

    I sure hope the offensive genius’s in NY realize that Brad Smith has to have the ball in his hands. Last year saw his talent squandered again by inept play calling and Shotty’s inability to figure out how to use B.Smith. When is someone going to “get it”, get the ball in this kids hands if you want to win. He has big play ability and great allusiveness. And he is still probably the best QB on team

    You guys are wearing me down with this Cutler stuff. The Jets will look stupid here, there is no way Cutler ends up here regardless of what we offer to overpay. I can see the Bears, Det, or Tampa, but no AFC team, & McDaniels will not betray Belicheck & send him to the Jets. This is a bigger mistake than the Favre deal & will guarantee us the same, nothing, thanks Brett. Build the “D” to win.

    We saw what Clemens could do a couple of seasons ago when Pennington was out…needless to say, it was a season most of us would like to forget. Now I know it’s not fair to place all the blame on Clemens but THIS TEAM NEEDS JAY CUTLER.

    Are you serious to say that someone with a losing record is a franchise QB? His own teamates Dont even like him! Its rediculous to say… do whatever it takes to get him when we could begiving up on a great future especially when we dont know what we have in Ratliff who could verywell be a Tom Brady in waiting… “Dont Sacrifice what you want most for what you want right now” Words of the Great 28

    Frank – what do you mean “shaky o-line”
    MAYBE Clemens and/or Ratliff can run the O, but Cutler DEFINITELY can.

  22. By Ira on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    Mike Mc, If by some chance the Jets and Cutler doesn’t get done [i doubt it] i am just fine with going to camp with Ratty and Kellen. If the Cutler blowup didn’t happen we all would be talking about something else.

  23. By uncle joe on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    Everyone keeps talking about Clemens had his shot two years ago and failed.Clemens & Cutler were in the same draft & two years ago if Cutler was our QB with that team that we had,what do you honestly think the results would be? I would love some one to answer,what did Clemens do bad in last years Pre Season when he was in with all the starters,besides bounce the ball off every WR’s hands & chest?

  24. By Ray on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    All this fantasy football talk is so exciting!! The harsh reality of getting Cutler is that it is going to take a hell of a lot. There are no less than 10 teams that have contacted Denver to say they are interested. Several of them with picks better than ours. So we need help from the team who is coached by the guy we just canned. And we are dealing with a team coached by a guy loyal to his..

  25. By Ray on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    …former coach in NE, who also dispises us. And you think all it will take is a 1st and a 3rd?? How about if we add next years 1st or 2nd to that? Get ready to sell the farm because that is what it will take. Be careful what you wish for you just may get it.

  26. By Jets 4 Life on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    I want to correct my last statement I meant #5 regarding the playing of the 3rd stringers, Rattlif is the better of the 2, I was thinking also of Clemons and his 1st win against PIttsburgh as I read comments. that game was to the wire. the running game helped us big time but it was the kick return from Leon that set up the game winning FG in OT my point is that KC is not our answer.time will tell.

    Well just got my PSL seat selection form for the new stadium today. Forget Cutler, they better make a move for Peyton Manning, Larry Fitzgerald and whole lot of other stars for the money they want me to spend. I’m at a loss for words and cash for that matter. The jets need star power to peddle these PSL’s, I really believe winning is secondary to draw power at this point.

    Hey Randy,Why Come no one here is talking about Cleveland’s WR Braylon Edwards.The Giants could’ve got him for a 2,a 5 and their WR Smith.Doesn’t ANYBODY think the Jets should send a 2,a 6(we have no 5) and OUR WR Smith.Mangini loves Smith.Why Come No One Sees This,WHY COME RANDY WHY COME?

    Unclejoe, Braylon Edwards drops more passes than McCarrins & T.O. combined, great size & speed but if you can’t make the catch what good is he.

    uncle Joe,
    The Jets aren’t going to give up 2 picks for a WR when they can get one in the draft if they choose to. And i would take Holt for 2 years anytime.

    What you have to ask yourself is, ***(will CUTLER be too SENSITIVE for NY and the NY media????)*** If CHAD PENNINGTON had been this sensitive when CHAD’s name what mentioned SO MANY times in a QB trade, then CHAD would have asked for a TRADE a long time ago! CUTLER might be too SENSITIVE for NYC.

    STOP STOP STOP with all the Cutler stuff , looks like the FAVRE thing all over again. If I wake up hear and see Cutler is a Jets I’m going to disown them, Im in biggets JETS fan, there are a few things i want to write about y i say that . But Ill cut my Jets tattoos out , burn all my JETS stuff , erase sept.23 06 week 3 against the fins out of my memory bank , same game i shed a tear when mr. chrebet talked to the fans. Then become a New England Patriots fan.

    Uncle Joe, you are definitely making sense now.. I also think the guy that said B. Smith needs more touches is totally correct. We cut our best WR, our best TE, and for some reason we think our offense is going to be better with Jay Cutler. With the exception of the 6td game vs Arizona, we couldn’t stay with the big boys or sustain drives. We should change the O, not turn into the Ravens…

    I like the sounds of the 3 teams who all have the same agenda getting together and making something happen, the DB can get Quinn and be done with the Drama in denver. Mangini and Tanny can hash out what can be respectfuly done in Trade for Cutler.Mangini gets what the Browns need to fill some of there needs.and the Jets get the Qb that will be there10-12 year fix a spot that has been a thorn to us

    TAKE JAY CUTLER NOW!!!! Without him, we can’t stretch the field. When we can’t stretch the field, there’s 8 men in the box. With 8 men in the box, we have a terrible run game. SO JAY CUTLER IS THE KEY TO OUR OFFENSE!!!

  37. By Jetsman on Mar 24, 2009 | Reply

    I have an idea, if we dont get Jay Cutler, lets start Brad Smith at QB! He broke a few QB records at Mizzou, and personally I don’t think Clemens or Ratliff can do better. Clemens throws 2 INTs for every TD, and Rattliff can only play good against scrubs with good WRs

    Wait people ! Cutler is not Farve . He would make an exceptional QB in New York. Someone with talent .Young enough to build around . Derek Anderson is still at cleveland too. ( wasting time there) . Tory Holt has got good size at reciever . Tony Gonzalez is still wasting time in Kansas City too. The jets need to make some bold strokes right now .

    If we’re rebuilding, our three QBs are fine for now. If we want to win big sooner — and I feel ya, MikeMc, on that PSL — getting Cutler makes perfect sense. Another Favre, with 16 less seasons on him? Yeah, right! Nobody on Denver likes him? Good, then let him start over in sports-crazy, big-hearted New York City. Just don’t trade Leon or Revis for him, like some idiot on the NFL site suggested.

    As much as I would like to see A stable quarterback on the J E T S….Lets not forget we had Chad he was pretty good but traded on a whim and a prayer…In other words we can not blame the quarterback alone. The entire offensive system looks malignant at times it needs to be overhauled. I am excited about the defense but it will be all for not if we cant move the ball.
