Did Mangini’s Past w/ Favre Cost the Browns a Shot at Cutler?

How close were the Browns to actually landing now Bears QB Jay Cutler? The Plain Dealer reports that the Browns were in, but Cutler was not. The paper reports that the Browns had a deal on the table for the Pro Bowl QB that would have been a three-way deal that would have moved Brady Quinn.

The report also says that the Redskins were involved. Before it could really get going though, Cutler told his agent – Bus Cook, that he didn’t want to play for new Browns coach Eric Mangini. The dislike for Mangini comes from a reported tense relationship that Mangini had last season with then Jets QB Brett Favre.

Mind you Cook also represented Favre, so he likely would have had intimate knowledge of how the relationship between Favre and Mangini really was.

So now, it appears that Derek Anderson and Quinn are here to stay, and if the report is true, Mangini has cost the team a chance to land a Pro Bowl QB.

    OMG! You are such a loser. Get a life, dude! I questioned the other day whether all you did was restate old rumors that had no validity and pass them off as new ideas. Today, you’ve proved it again.

    Yeah but the Crazy Browns, and the Plain Dealer are fueling the Trade Rumors still of Quinn to Denver
    no way, no how, Do I trade Brady Quinn
    and leave the team with erratic Derek Anderson
    trade Anderson, and give the Job to Quinn
    Quinn is a better QB then Anderson and will be a better QB then Cutler
    Though Quinn might want out of Cleveland especially if John St. Clair starts at tackle
    because whoever is the QB will be running for their lives.

    I would have taken Cutler in a heartbeat. The kid is going to be incredible. He has a much better track record than either of the two QBs the Browns have now.

    No way I would give up what chicago did to get cutler. How longs is it going to be til he starts crying again? We need tough hard nose players not flashy wannabe super stars who bitch and moan everytime they dont get their way

    Amen John. The Bears paid way too rich of a price for Cutler. Old croc tears needs to take his soother and pablum and hit the road.

    garbage reporting and rumors and comments llike these are more proof of the lack of good coverage here in this area. it is sad that an area like greater cleveland, which is so positively supportive of sports, is so underminded by cheap shot artist reporters, reporters who are capable but lose out to weather reports with colorful maps and 12 to 15 minute time slots over 2 to 3 minute crappy sports coverage. but junk like this really cheapens what it is the rest of the sports world sees of us. what, are you trying to start a riff between fans and mangini already, to make a ending comment like above.

    I love this. What better option do the Browns have at quarterback. Regardless of what the story says, he would have added a lot of talent to the roster.

    Nobody wants Quinn to go and we all know the Browns need their draft picks. But Jay Cutler has a lot of talent and he is only 25 years old. I see Derek Anderson only with an accurate short game and better mobility.

    With a different offense, head coach, etc., it doesn’t matter, talent is talent and the Browns roster is not full of it right now.

    winslow added talent.

    T.O. adds talent.

    B.E. adds talent.

    You can go on and on with talent that you don’t need. this kind neutralizes itself with all the problems and distractions. I’m sick to death of millionaire crybabies in sports that don’t know how to spread the ball around.
