Jay Cutler: I never wanted to be traded

This kind of cracks me up/makes me want to hit my head against the wall.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler

"I was surprised they decided to trade me this soon," Cutler told Glazer in his first comments since the statement was released. "I didn’t want to get traded. This wasn’t me. (The Broncos) had been going back and forth saying things, wanting me to be their quarterback and then they didn’t."

"I really didn’t want this. I love Denver. I really like my teammates. I didn’t want it to get this far."

It makes me wonder if this was an attempt to get a new contract rather than force a trade.  Cutler had two amazing receivers, a good offensive line, and an offensive minded coach and owner.  Now he is in a city with a mediocre offense, no high draft picks, and a team that thinks run first.

Now Denver will go out and draft Matt Sanchez and he will get to drive the Ferrari that is Denver’s offence.
