Funny, I was just thinking about this.
Last night, I was talking to a friend, saying, "Wouldn't it be funny if the Jets turn to Mangini and the Browns to help out for a Cutler trade?"
"Fat chance," he said.
Maybe, but you could say many things about Mangini, but stupid isn't one of them. And having two quarterbacks on his roster only hurts him. Constant speculation hurts his team. If Quinn has a bad day, the "Put in Derek Anderson" chants begin and he has nothing but headaches. In short, it behooves Mangini to get something for one of his QBs and go from there. It makes sense.
And Quinn learned under Charley Weis at Notre Dame, so he's schooled in the way Josh McDaniles runs his offense. So it makes a lot of sense for Denver to trade Cutler and get a kid that already knows McDaniles offense and can grow with their new coach in Denver.
For the Jets, the trade makes sense as well. Obviously they can use a QB. The only question is do they have enough to get him. Say, Shaun Ellis, Abram Elam and a no. 1 pick for Quinn and maybe a 5th rounder. Then trade Quinn and next year's 1 for Cutler. Would Denver and Cleveland go for this? Would the Jets?
Would you? Let's here what you have to say?
