Trey Wingo Does Not Care About The Plight Of Jay Cutler

Thursday, March 26, 2009

I've long been a fan of Trey Wingo on ESPN. Sure we've had our run-ins, but the guy is honest and cares about the Sport he covers. You can't really ask for much more. Well, Trey was "On The DL" today and talked about NFL rule changes, and ESPN's role within Sports, but it was the Cutler talk that seemed to stick out the most....

“You know what? Players lose in the NFL. That’s the way it goes. Everybody is a commodity...Everybody is tradable. If Joe Montana was tradable I’m pretty sure Jay Cutler is. And I think Jay Cutler is a very good quarterback -- I think he’s a top-10 quarterback in the NFL. I think he has an unbelievable arm and he’s got a great future.

“But you know what? Get over it. Things happen in the NFL. And players are treated as commodities and that ain’t changing anytime soon whether it’s you, or anyone else.”
Up until recently, I've been on the side of Cutler, but I'm starting to see why Denver may not trust in him. The guy does great things for the diabetic community, but couldn't be more of a baby at times. Anyway, great interview and you should certainly check out the rest.

I'm surprised that Wingo was able to do this interview. He usually makes out with Schlereth when he isn't on the air.

Wingo and SVP are the only two people ar tWWL that aren't afraid to show their fandom, and that's why I like them. Ryen Russillo occasionally lets his show(like his complete lambasting of A-Rod a year or so ago on The Baseball Show), but he pretty much keeps it reigned in.

For all of those out there saying quit whining Cutler this is a business, just remember "this is a business" goes both ways. McDaniels should have been honest with Cutler from the beginning. As always, management wants commitment from the employee but doesn't give the same in return - see IBM in the last 24 hours. Be careful, Cutler may make reference to "it's a business" when he shows up only when mandatory, reports out of shape, and throws numerous picks. Remember, the contract states he has to play football, says nothing about his heart having to be in it.

In case your curious, Trey gave more comments regarding the situation during an interview with a St. Louis TV station while covering the Women's Final Four (Trey used to work at the station before going to ESPN). The video can be found here:

The question and answer about Cutler is with about 2:30 left in the interview.
