Cutler: Didn't trust McDaniels

In this Chicago Sun Times feature on Jay Cutler, the Bears QB makes some interesting comments about Denver coach Josh McDaniels.

Obviously, McDaniels wanted nothing to do with Cutler and traded him away. Two seasons later, Cutler says he didn’t trust McDaniels either.

From the story:

''I wasn't his guy, and he told me I wasn't his guy when he got hired,'' Cutler said. ''He had totally different intentions, which is fine. I understood that.''

What Cutler didn't understand was McDaniels' reluctance to own up to the trade talks when the quarterback called to ask his new coach about the rumors.

''He acted like he had no idea what I was talking about,'' Cutler said. ''Then it took him two or three days to finally admit that he tried to trade me.''

Even before a scheduled March 14 meeting -- one that included Cutler; his agent, Bus Cook; McDaniels, and Broncos general manager Brian Xanders -- the young quarterback was encouraged enough that he shipped his belongings from Nashville to Denver. But during the meeting, Cutler was put off by McDaniels' message: Any player, including Cutler, could be traded at any time.

''By that point, I was like, 'You know what? Just trade me now,''' Cutler recalled. '''I mean, just do it now. Let's get it over with.'''

That apparently is not the relationship Cutler has with Chicago coach Lovie Smith. Perhaps it’s because Smith hasn’t wavered in his idea that Cutler, despite a mediocre season last year, is his man on offense. You’ve got to love a coach who continues to believe in you.

Cutler: Didn't trust McDaniels

Who can believe anything J-Cry says... The impetuous little twit.  How'd you like your 10 sacks in 5 quarters on the team you wanted to go to.  Even Jake Plummer thought you were a fool, and Denver was hardly an easy town for him.

Urlacher had it right: Jay Cutler is a Pu$$y!
