Noted Seahawks backer Captain Caveman delivers again on KSK today, taking the Broncos to task for royally frakking things up with franchise QB Jay Cutler.. The key passage:
My point is, Jesus CHRIST I would LOVE to have this guy taking snaps for my team for the next 7 years. And so would Vikings fans. And Jets fans. And Titans fans. And Raiders fans. And any of the other teams who are living with Trent Edwards. Kyle Orton. Fucking Dan Orlovsky.
This shit blows my mind. Do they not realize how rare and wonderful a real, live, young, GOOD quarterback is? Hell, Ben Roethlisberger’s won two Super Bowls, and Pittsburgh fans are still justifiably terrified when he holds on to the ball for more than three seconds.
And why would the Lions or the Seahawks or anyone else risk drafting Matthew Stafford — a great prospect, but obviously unproven — with their #1 pick when they could trade that pick and some other parts for a rare proven commodity?
Regular readers know that I'm a radical Hasselbeck loyalist, but if Cutler could handle sitting behind Beck for two more years, he'd be ready to take over in 2011 at age 28 with very little wear and tear and a loooong career in front of him. Or, if you want to be cutthroat about it, it would be nice to have Cutler around if Hass suffered a horrible injury or a sudden erosion of his skill set.
Obviously, this has almost zero chance of happening.. but here's the question: If you were running the Hawks, would you trade our #4 pick for Cutler? Why? Why not?
