Cut Too Deep

I had contemplated writing an extended bio for my first blog post, but decided to concentrate on a major issue at hand.

The Jay Cutler-Broncos situation has now hit the irreconcilable differences stage. The more we hear about this story, the more it seems like we will never hear the complete truth. Each side continues to give us some truth, but inevitably contradicts the other in the end.

Though head coach Josh McDaniels said the team wasn’t trying to trade Cutler, he also admitted that he did listen to offers. Cutler took that as the team was actively trying to trade him, which has obviously bothered him to the point that multiple conversations with team to smooth things haven’t helped, and in fact may have made things worse. While Cutler is taking this as a betrayal by the team, he needs to understand that this is a business. McDaniels would not be doing his job if he refused to explore all options to make his team better. Last I checked, the Broncos didn’t make the playoffs last year, and McDaniels was hired to fix that, so is doing whatever it takes to do that.

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
