Cutler, Yes, “But Not At Any Cost”

March 24th, 2009

Count WFTS-TV sportscaster Al Keck as one who is not in the tank at all costs for disgruntled Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler.

Writing on his station’s website, Keck admits he’s love to see Cutler wearing Pewter and Red, but within reason. Keck doesn’t believe in giving up the farm for the almost-Bucs quarterback.

I can understand a first and a third. Even that is stretching it. If your scouting department is doing its job, a first and third should translate to a dominant starter and a solid regular.

But a pair of first rounders? The Buccaneers are just starting to recover from giving up 2 first-round picks to the Jets for Keyshawn Johnson and two #1’s and 2 #2’s for Jon Gruden.

That’s upwards of 6 starters. Obviously, nobody would expect the Buccaneers to hit on all six, but if three panned out think about how much better this team would be.

Joe is likeminded with Keck. Sure, Joe would love to have Cutler. But giving up two first round picks (at least) is crazy for a quarterback who is a glorified spoiled brat who hasn’t logged time in a playoff game yet.

Can anyone say “Jeff George?”

Sure the Bucs gave up two first round picks for Chucky. But the Bucs were banging on the Super Bowl door and needed a push to knock it through. The Bucs are a far cry from a Super Bowl contender, even with Cutler.

    I didn’t even know that Al Keck was still doing sports in the area? Between him and Tom Korun you’re lookin’ at two of the biggest sports doofuses.
