Jay Cutler Superstar

Denver Broncos Fire Josh McDaniels - The Cutler Angle

The Denver Post reports that the Broncos have fired head coach Josh McDaniels.

"My decision to relieve Josh McDaniels as head coach was not taken lightly. I will always be appreciative of his passion, enthusiasm and hard work, and I thank him for his efforts.

In the end, I was not satisfied with the results and the direction this team was headed. The decision to make a change was extremely difficult but one that needed to be made for this organization and our fans," Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said.

So rewind a bit. If Josh McDaniels doesn't anger Jay Cutler and subsequently Brandon Marshall in the process, maybe those two players -- Pro Bowl caliber players -- remain on the team. Would McDaniels still be the head coach of the Broncos? My guess is yes.

But his first course of duty was to inquire about obtaining Matt Cassel. Justifiably, Cutler was miffed, and asked for a trade. Marshall left too. Oops. Bad move, Josh.

The funny part is that he will probably be a head coach in the NFL again sooner rather than later. Perhaps in his next position he will adopt some better practices in player management. Because when you dump your two best players on offense, success is a difficult thing to obtain.

The only part you are missing is that the Broncos were a losing team with Cutler throwing to Marshall and the fact that their offense is not the reason that they are losing. Now with the Bears, Cutler's wild are is under control and Marshall is doing nothing in Miami.
