Cutler mess started when Shanahan was fired

Jay Cutler’s agent Bus Cook recently said that the quarterback’s feud with the Broncos started when head coach Mike Shanahan was fired.

Jay CutlerBroncos owner Pat Bowlen challenged a claim made by agent Bus Cook to on Wednesday morning that he had lied to quarterback Jay Cutler, a Cook client. Jay was disappointed in the firing of Mike Shanahan and met with the owner,” Cook told “The owner assured him everything would be fine. The owner said he had the second-best offense in football and would leave the offensive staff intact. Jay was good with that. Then he hires an offensive coach who gets rid of the staff.” Bowlen said Wednesday afternoon that he did not recall meeting with Cutler during the coaching search. Cutler left Denver the day before Mike Shanahan was fired and did not return until February. Bowlen said he would like the Pro Bowl quarterback to stay with the Broncos but was unable to predict if that would happen.

When Cutler met with new head coach Josh McDaniels last weekend, he said that McDaniels made it clear that he could still entertain trading him and that he wants his own guy at quarterback. But McDaniels said nothing like that was ever uttered. And now Bowlen is denying that he ever had a meeting with Cutler to reassure him about the Shanahan firing.

There’s a lot of he said, she said happening right now and at least to me, it appears that Cutler is stretching the truth as far as he can. It seems like this kid has wanted out since Shanahan got fired and will stop at nothing until he burns down every last bridge in Denver.
