    Javon Walker dropped the first bomb of the Broncos' offseason this morning.

    In a rambling briefing with the press, Walker essentially said he no longer wants to be with the Broncos.

    "It's not for Javon," Walker said. "It's not for me."

    Walker bounced and back and forth and said that he'll do whatever the Broncos decide but he concluded by saying that being here is not for him.

    Walker even suggested a return to Green Bay. The Broncos acquired him from the Packers in April 2006 for a second round draft choice.

    Think he ever regrets NOT coming to New England?

    Boo hoo. You chose to go to a QB-less team. Deal with it.

    Not that I'm drinking the Cutler kool-aid, but the Denvers are, at worse, a middle of the road team at QB.

    Javon just got there, what the hell's his problem?

    What a chucklehead. I'll bet he's extra pissy about the Brett Favre revival now.

    They should trade him to Minnesota as punishment, where there is no passing game to speak of.

    Javon was so, so, so, desperate to make a pile of dough and get out of Green Bay. Even though he tore up a knee but collected his paycheck nevertheless, for sitting on his arse for the Pack, while contributing zilch.

    Now he wants out of Denver. He deserves a healthy dose of rookie QB training. A tour in Atlanta, Miami, KC or Oakland ought to do him fine, for a year or three,trying to catch chucks from Matt Ryan?, Brian Brohm?, Brady Croyle or Jamarcus Russell... If the Jets draft a QB he could go there also, but then KC is virtually a rook so its a good place as well for him. Let him get barbecued by the NY press, and the Jets jolly fandom.

    I suspect he hopes to go to the Clots and take Marvin's old job, catching passes from Pay-me-a-ton.

    He should text his buddy Deion and tell him thanks for nothing for warning him not to come to NE 'cause you'll never get your money... all they'll do is match you up with a HOF QB and hand you some stinkin' rings.

    We gave a 4th-rounder for the best receiver in the league. What do we give for Walker? A 7th? :D

    You don't give nothing for him. Pats wanted to trade for him, got him plane tickets twice and he refused to get on the plane. He preferred Denver, so that's where he was traded.

    You think the Pats are going to give him plane tickets again?!?!

    He's a great candidate for Baltimore with the strong QB tradition of the Ravens.

    I thought it was the Patriots' choice not to trade for him, as opposed to him not wanting to come here. Now I'm confused.

    I say we offer Denver Matt Cassell contingent upon Walker restructuring to a 3-year/2-million-per-year/no-signing-bonus offer.

    Nope, he was scheduled to visit here, but between Deion warning him he would NOT get his $$$$ here and Shanny extending the interview and likely throwing the old if you leave the area code the offer is off the table card, he never got on the plane Friday. They signed him Saturday and we drafted CJ an hour later. If they hadn't signed him they were reportedly set to draft CJ. Of course at the moment it's looking like a wash...

    Thanks for the info. I hope CJ can get healthy so that we can see what he has.

    Cutler is already one of the top ten-to-dozen QBs in football and he's just finished his sophomore season.

    Sorry, but this is wishful thinking on your part. Guys I'd take over Cutler include:
    Brady, P. Manning, Palmer, Hasselbeck, Brees, Bulger, Romo, Anderson, Warner, Roethlingsberger, Kitna, Garrard, Farve, Garcia, and Schaub.

    Is Cutler getting better? Sure. But there is better n the league currently.
    Cutler is middle of the road right now.

    Wishful thinking? Plenty of evidence that supports Cutler is a top 10-12 QB right now:

    Cutler is tenth in the 2007 Football Outsiders DVOA QB ratings:

    http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/qb.php

    Ranked 12th in the NFL in QB rating:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/statistics?stat=pass&sort=rat&league=nfl&season=2&year=2007

    Scouts Inc. recently rated him as the 11th best in the league:

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/news/story?id=3147842


    You really show your insanity when you mention you would rather have a mid-30s Jon Kitna over Cutler. A mediocre QB that has thrown more picks than TD passes in each of the last two seasons.

    Hmmm.. I show my insanity because I think that Cutler is over-rated by Denver fans?

    As for Passer Rating, thats a useless stat in my book. I look at wins, losses, completions, attempts, TDs, and Ints. But I also look at the TEAM.

    Cutler has a great running game and O-line to help take pressure off him. Kitna doesn't. The Detroit O-line isn't that great. Cutler is 8-12 as a starter with a Denver team that has a good offense with the likes of Walker, Marshall, McGahee, et al.

    BTW, even if you take Kitna out, there are still 14 other QB better than Cutler.

    As for Scouts, give me a break. They are a bunch of over-rated blowhards. I can remember them putting an article in ESPN The Magazine 2 years ago about how to beat the Patriots Defense. The only problem was that the defense they showed the Patriots running as their base was the 4-3 defense. One that the Patriots weren't running with any great regularlity.

    DVOA is another one of those fictitious stats that show nothing unless you are a fantasy geek.

    Yes, really. I'd take Kitna over Cutler with the Denver offense.
