Jay Cutler goes to Miami by Ashley Wright

In wake of Ryan Tannehill’s injury, the Miami Dolphins elected to sign quarterback Jay Cutler to a one-year, ten million dollar deal on Sunday. Jay Cutler chose to forgo retirement and a broadcasting career to rejoin Adam Gase (who was the Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator) in Miami.

Jay Cutler has been called many things during his time in the NFL. Many people question his leadership abilities, and his decision making as a quarterback. Granted Cutler recorded his best touchdown to interception ratio under Adam Gase, but many people are still skeptical of Cutler, as they should be.

Recent statements by ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith were very intriguing as he stated “He [Cutler] is the worst leader in the NFL… He is a joke… He is a horrible quarterback.”

In Cutler’s first press conference as a Dolphin reported by Conor Orrhe joked “The good thing is I play quarterback so I don’t really have to be that good of cardiovascular shape, but I’ll be fine. [Dolphins head coach Adam Gase] knows kind of what I’ve been up to, so we’ll figure it out along the way.” He is literally the only “leader” that would make such a comment. You will never hear other quarterbacks such as Ben Roethlisberger , Eli Manning, or Tom Brady make such an atrocious joke! A true leader wouldn’t blatantly disassociate himself, or his position from the other guys on the team who are working hard in hopes of winning a championship.

Cutler’s former teammate from 2013 to 2015 with the Chicago Bears, Martellus Bennett in a report by John Breech ripped Cutler’s quarterback ability “I’d be open and he’d throw into double coverage,” Martellus said. The signing of Cutler was a huge mistake on the Dolphins part, and Cutler will prove everyone who is criticizing him to be correct.

Jay Cutler over Colin Kaepernick, a proven leader who was three completions away from a championship against the Ravens? Interesting move!

Kobe or LeBron? by Ashley Wright

There’s no debate that Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are two of the greatest players the NBA has ever seen. However when current Hall of Famer and NBA great Michael Jordan was asked who is better between the two he stated [in a report by MIKE CHIARI] … 

“Would I rank LeBron over Kobe in terms of best of all time? No. There’s something about five that beats three. Now he may be better than that, but Kobe won five championships. LeBron won three.”

… Granted LeBron’s career average of 27 points, 7 rebounds and, 7 assist is better than Kobe’s 25 points, 5 rebounds and, 4 assists, Kobe holds a 5-2 record in the NBA finals which is not only better than LeBron’s 3-5 record but that also means Kobe has won more titles than LeBron in less games. LeBron averages are slightly higher than Kobe’s but isn’t the goal to win championships rather than average more points than the player across from you? LeBron is obviously below .500 in the finals whereas Kobe has a winning record. Some may argue that Kobe needed Shaq to win his first three and after Shaq’s departure the help of Pau Gasol to win his last two. Other’s may rebuttal that argument and claim LeBron needed to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to win his first two and Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to win his third. It’s true both players had a hand in winning their championships but didn’t Jordan have the help of Pippen and Rodman? When it comes to Jordan’s statement of Bryant being the better player than James, it is almost inarguable because almost every NBA player will agree the common goal is to be crowned the NBA champions at the end of the season. LeBron James is still an active player in the NBA and has the opportunity to win more championships, and perhaps pass both Jordan and Kobe.

Greatest Basketball Team of all Time by Ashley Wright

On this day 25 years ago the original Dream Team that won the gold medal at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona took the floor and started their historical run. The Dream Team was nothing short of a phenomenon at the time. They dominated the Olympic competition, beating their eight opponents by an average of 48 points. The Dream Team put on performances that we will never forget. In their opening game they routed Angola, winning by 68 points. NBA Hall of Famer and former forward Charles Barkley helped by posting 24 points 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the opener. Barkley also led the team in points per game during the 1992 Olympics averaging 18. A team that also included Jordan, Bird, Magic and Ewing is still one of the most popular US men’s basketball teams to date, but were they the greatest?

Comments about Michael Vick pursuing coaching by Ashley Wright

 

 According to an article by Joseph Zucker …  it was reported that Micheal Vick has begun pursuits in a coaching career …

My views are …

It’s no secret former number one draft pick Michael Vick is one of the most talented Quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. Through his 14 year career Vick threw for 22,464 yards and 133 touchdowns while completing 56 percent of his total pass attempts. Although Vick served a 23-month prison sentence that doesn’t take away from the talent he displayed during his playing time in the NFL. With Andy Reid’s help Vick can absolutely become a great coach in the NFL.
