Cutler looking better these days

I was a little scared off my boy Jay Cutler this year, but I’m feeling better now. I’ll feel a lot better if they address the offensive line in the draft, which they likely will.

Too often in the NFL we see high expectations for a player or a team for a given year only to see the player or team fail to meet those expectations. Then, the next year, while expectations are low, the player or team seemingly surprises and plays very well. That could be the case in Denver this year. After all, coming on and performing well when no one expects you to is a classic Travis Henry move, one he did last in 2006 in Tennessee.

I am still concerned about the line, so it’s not all rosy in Denver, far from it.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
