A New Era

The Jay Cutler era begins this Sunday at Invesco Vs The Seahawks. Your thoughts?

It'll only be a matter of time before people are calling for Plummer again.

Doubt it dude. This kid is special. He is going to be the next big thing here in Denver since Elway!

No one knows about the kid, that is what makes it exciting! We know he was a 4 year starter at Vanderbilt and yadda yadda yadda but no one knows if he's the 2nd coming of John Elway or just the next Tommy Maddox. We will wait and see so that is all we can do now until he plays his first NFL game.

People had just as high hopes for Brian Griese and after his terrific first season, it was rough for him until he left.

Here's the bottom line, Cutler can't get better without playing. But throwing him to the wolves against a Seattle defense, 3rd in the league with 37 sacks, should make for a long day if you're a Denver fan. The offensive line is struggling (it was obvious even with Jake under center), the running game is questionalble, and I'm not sure a rookie QB is going to resolve the lack of offensive productivity.

But who knows...that's why they play the game. I am hoping Cutler can come out and toss for 300 yards, 3 TD in a winning effort to get Denver back on track. Right now, Denver is at its low point, mentally. No confidence in the QB, no confidence in the offense. This is having a cascading effect in all areas of the game, so the defense is playing horribly, field position on our punt unit has become worthless. What I think Shanahan is doing here is trying to get that spark back to give people confidence in the QB and the offense...I pray it works!!! Go Broncos

rejoice my brothers, for the savior has arrived!!!!....... j/k

But really, we have many problems on this team right now. O-line, injuries to the secondary, musical chairs in the backfield, lack of confidence/passion, etc. I think one of the other major problems right now is Rod Smith. He really looks like he is the slowest person on the field. Defenses can focus all of their attention on Javon Walker because they know Rod Smith is not a threat. Rod Smith is a beloved Bronco, and provided us with many fond memories, but enough is enough. His role needs to be diminished, Brandon Marshall looks good, he is a big target and has made some big plays. Kircus is even a bigger threat to defenses right now than Rod Smith. With Tatum comming back (even though I'm not a big Tatum fan, I've been extremeley disapointed with Mike Bell) I hope this team will rally around Jay and allow him to showcase his talents. His talents are certainly night and day different than Jake Plummer's.

Well it's about 16 hours till game time and i'll be there live to see Cutler get his 1st win as the starting QB for the Denver Broncos. I don't care if he comes out and throws 300 yards, I just want to see him manage the game better then Plummer did. He is going to tear it up baby! Cutler Rules!

First half grade...


I think a lot of butterflies contributed to this, but it certainly is a slow start. I was going to give him a B until that wonderful interception he threw that was returned for a TD. If he is supposed to be better than Plummer, he isn't showing it yet!!! I'll see how the 2nd half goes.

That had to be the most rediculous defensive line holding penalty I have ever seen...congratulations to the refs for giving Seattle a free 3 points...

Oh thank heaven for Branden Marshall

10/21 for 143 yards 2 TD (really good receiver plays on these) and 2 INT...I say a C- for an overall grade. As I mentioned in other posts, I don't think Cutler gives Denver the best chance to win, so lets chalk this season up to a rebuilding year and lets look forward to next season. I'm good for getting Cutler some playing experience and I'll be interesting to see what he can do when he starts to feel comfortable and Shanahan can start to open the playbook.

Well, it's evident that Jay Cutler can come in on his first start and (despite the first game jitters) yield the same results as Jake Plummer has. A sub-par offense that at times shows glimpses of its past virtues. It was encouraging to recognize that he has the ability to convert a third down pass which is something that hasn't happened here in a while. His timing with his receivers is obviously out of sink, but after a couple weeks of practice that will defiantly improve. Also, when the game time temperature is that cold, everybody is going to be tight. Even Hasselbrick's throwing motion was out of sink.

Look, the Broncos weren't going to be a contender this year anyway, they were going to be lucky to even limp in to the playoffs. So it shouldn't be a surprise to anybody that this is being "chalked up to a rebuilding year". That happened when we lost to the Charges at home, and couldn't get it done in KC (under Plummer).

I would also like to emphasize my earlier comment about Rod Smith. His osteoperosis isn't allowing him to hold on to the football anymore. What more does Brandon Marshall have to do to be the #2 WR in this system.

A whole other can of worms – Play calling…….WTF???

I couldn't agree more with you about Rod Smith man. The dude is a weak link and he always has a face that says he is still mad about white people or something. Brandon Marshall, now there is a cat who can play. i totally think we need to get him more play in the offense. Cutler will have a good game and lead an upset over the Chargers and silence the critics this week. What was up with the prevent defense at the end of the game vs the Hawks?

DAMN! Cutler showed us something in the Chargers game, nobody can deny. The Broncos have a whole bunch of problems like,DARRENT WILLIAMS, Special teams, the safety position, DARRENT WILLIAMS, Rod Smith, play calling, and DARRENT WILLIAMS.
When your down by 8 and momentum is in your favor, Tatum is having a great day, you plan on going for it on fourth, why call 2 pass plays out of Shotgun? That is crazy! Line up and pound it, if you can't get 2 yards on 2 running plays then you don't deserve to win. The play selection is awful right now, and this team has no identity.

Thank you jamezwp - this is exactly what I have been saying all along...Plummer or Cutler behind the center will NOT make a difference this year as long as the rest of the team is playing the way it is. The first half for Cutler was not that impressive, but that 2nd half was really impressive...looked like a solid veteran and I'm excited to get that consistency out of him, but it doesn't matter with the other problems Denver has right now.

I still think the Cutler move was the right one, Plummer was never going to take us anywhere, and we were right to get Cutler ready for next year.

Also what I've been saying all along.

Choosing to go with Cutler was basically Shanahans way of saying he threw the towel in on this season. No wonder you guys can't win any games. Everyone is giving up. Donkeys are back to them good ole selves. Broncos will NEVER win a title again!

I was just reading our discussion we had on 2/16/2005 regarding Jeff Garcia vs. Jake Plummer. And I must say, it feels good to be validated 2 years later. He is playing great!

We should of brought Jeff Garcia in when we had the chance 2 years ago. He would of been a much better mentor to Jay Cutler.

I was thinking the same damn thing james. I do wish we would have brought in Jeff Garcia. With a good team this guy is a kick ass QB, not to mention a great leader. Who knows with jeff Garcia at the helm last season we would have been Super bowl champs instead of the Steelers.
