Dear Josh McDaniels,
Remember that time when you sent that guy who appeared to be the future to the Windy City? Well whether or not it was a good deal remains to be seen. However, what is evident is that I lost out on two freaking $70 jerseys and a $15 “Got Cutler?” t-shirt.
His ostracism riled up Denver fans into fits of pyromania. That infamous August caused fans to cremate whatever memories they still obtained in an attempt to materialize their anger. The rest of your tenure has not led fans to dissimilar actions. If I owned a Kyle Orton jersey it would have been cauterized well before the fourth quarter of the final Chiefs game.
Coach, what you need to recognize is that good old Mike Shanahan was never a fan of keeping around the guys whose jersey’s people like to purchase. Josh, you’re not variating from this philosophy. Thank god they don’t make Mike Nolan jerseys.
2003: I bought a Clinton Portis jersey ($70).
2004: Clinton Portis was traded to the Redskins (which I’m not complaining about).
2005: I bought a Trevor Pryce as well as a Jake Plummer jersey ($140).
2006: Trevor Pryce was signed by the Ravens in free agency.
2007: Jake Plummer was traded to Tampa Bay and he decided to retire. Shortly soon after I purchased a Jason Elam jersey, a sure fire investment I thought ($70).
2008: Jason Elam was signed by the Falcons in free agency. So I bought a Jay Cutler jersey for myself, one for my girlfriend, and a “Got Cutler” t-shirt after his first full season starting ($160).
2009: McJayGate. My parents were generous enough to bestow me with a Brandon Marshall jersey that Christmas ($70).
Somewhere buried in my closet is $440 worth of throwback merchandize, please keep it from totaling $510. I’d like to see B-Marsh truck through San Fran’s secondary in London and Id like to see Elvis Dumervil wreak havoc in the backfield again.
Orton? Well he’d better be cheap and Tom Brandstater should get more looks come pre-season. Orton would still be fine if a guy like Sean Canfield or Jimmy Clausen is drafted.
The bottom line is Coach, I’m more than willing to support you for another season as long as you don’t let Elvis leave the building.
What about you Bronco nation? How many jersey casualties have you suffered over the years? How badly do you want to keep Doom and B-Marsh? Air it out!
