The Denver Broncos just traded Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler for Kyle “Neckbeard” Orton. I haven’t been this relieved since those antibiotics the Old Chief prescribed me made my piss stop burning (kidding).
On a serious note, though, I was extremely worried that the Broncos would trade Cutler and then draft USC’s Mark Sanchez. I believe that Sanchez will not only be better than Jay Cutler, but also that he has the athletic talents and leadership abilities to be league MVP someday.
Cutler has all the tools, but he is reckless and selfish. I just don’t see him carrying a team to a championship. Meanwhile, I can see Sanchez doing just that. The kid blew away his pro day yesterday at USC and has teams drooling. And, personally, I think Cutler is the most overrated player in the league. I really do.
For those of you thinking the Donks still might draft Dirty, it’s not gonna happen. The Broncos have signed vets and seem to want to win now. Plus, there is no way Sanchez slips to 12 after yesterday. Ain’t gonna happen, folks.
But instead of drafting Sanchez, the Broncos look ready to hinge their Super Bowl hopes to…Orton? Yes, the guy who’s known for his love of Jack Daniels and his neckbeard — not his football accomplishments. Sure, the Broncos get two firsts, but two firsts aren’t going to do anything for you as long as you have a loser QB. Sorry, Kyle, but your game is about as good as your facial hair.
And to think, all of this came about because the Chiefs finally brought in a franchise quarterback in Matt Cassel. Get on Twitter and tell King Carl (so he says) that this is what happens when you grow a pair and bring in a QB.
