April Fool's ... ?  :-\

Given that this has been tossed around for a good month now, I think the chances of it being an April Fool's joke are pretty slim.  Not like Denver was going to contend this year anyway with Shanny gone.   ;)

This week's SI has comments on the whole kerfuffle in Denver as well, so I doubt it's a joke.  The SI article was interesting, if short.  Denver coach says nothing ever came of the Cassell talks because they were too late, essentially outing himself as being interested in Cassel (which is fair, but dude, smarten up).

The reports are that the Jets and Bucs are the most likely destinations.  

I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, want the Bucs to pull this off.  I'd give up this year's 1 and 3, and next year's 1 to make it happen.  I'd throw in a player or two if that's what it took.

That said, it's definitely too good to be true, so I expect him to go to the Jets (second time in a calendar year that the Jets out-do the Bucs for a quarterback) or Daniel Snyder will get it in his head that he wants Cutler and will give anything to make it happen - when that guy gets fixated on something there's no stopping him.

Mort is reporting that the Bucs are the front runners at the moment, and Bus Cook (Cutler's agent) is saying a deal could be done within 24 hours.  The only real advantage I see Tampa having is that they're in the NFC.

Please oh please oh please let him go to Tampa.

(sorry Ryan)

Reports all over have Cutler going to the Bears.

Allegedly for this year's 1st rounder, next year's 1st and 3rd, and Kyle Orton.

Good for you.

Now that he's not a Buc, I hope he flops.

Kyle Orton? We might as well just start Simms...

I would have MUCH rather they went after someone like Briggs. And Chicago only has the 18th pick. What a ****** trade. >:(

Trust me, you do NOT want to start Chris Simms.

The guy sucks.

Oh I'm well aware of that. I don't think Orton is a whole hell of a lot better. This season is going to suck.

For you and me both.  I'm thinking the Bucs will be picking in the top 3 next year.

Woo-Hoo!  The Bears finally have a QB that can accurately throw the ball more than 10 yards for once this decade.  The problem is, they have no receivers that can catch the ball once it's thrown to them...  Ought to be another roller coaster of a season for us fans.

And now we have the exact opposite problem. So much for Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal's development...

That's not a very nice thing to say.
