rest - http://www.denverpost.com/broncosmai...cdaniels-worthMike, with all the drama the Broncos have gone through since Mike Shanahan's firing, I think it's time to re-evaluate the Jay Cutler trade and the impact it's had on the makeup of this year's team. I feel we have a better chance to win a Super Bowl now (I'm optimistic about Peyton Manning's neck), than if we had held on to Cutler. But I'm not sure it was worth three years of pain and mediocrity. Was it?

You have mixed feelings and many thoughts, all in one mailbag-opening letter. To begin, the Broncos would not have gone through so much misery from the second half of 2009 through the early part of 2011 had Josh McDaniels not let his young male pride get in the way of his relationship with Jay Cutler.
This was a 26-year-old quarterback coming off a Pro Bowl season in his third season. McDaniels chose the Broncos ahead of other head coaching opportunities because of Cutler. Instead, it was two petulant children who couldn't get along. Only in Denver.
