The Porcine Oddysey #106: Welcome Jay Cutler…and Gus too!

Jay Cutler

Gus the Can

Hey Dolphin faithful… What are you looking at?  I gotta right to be here…

I’m Gus.  “Gus”?  you say…”Who are you”?  I should just say what’s to you?  But you don’t know me so I’m gonna educate you:  All you gotta know is wherever Jay goes, I go!

I’m Gus – the can Jay likes to kick!

Some of you think you got it all figured out (Gus spits on the floor).  You say “Jay Cutler, that pouty brat who acts like he is too cool for football, why did we sign him?”

 

CutlerBears1

Well let me tell you right now…You don’t know what you are talking about. Me and Jay go way back.  He’s been kicking me since college.

And I’m here to tell you Jay gets a bad rap.

VanderbiltCan

 

Sure Jay pouts a bit on the sideline but that’s no reason to judge him.

I first met Jay as a freshman when  he was at Vanderbilt.  I was a nerdy can who was nervous to be away from home. Jay was a big time college quarterback.

Candorm

We were roommates.  Jay was always good to me…he let me carry his books for him, pay for his lunch and sometimes I even got to watch the halls to make sure no one was watching when he had a girl in his dorm room.

We were great friends!

Cutler Vandy

In four years Jay threw for over 8600 yards and 59 touchdowns.  Everyone knew he was going to play in the NFL and probably gonna be a first round pick.  He was the biggest thing at Vanderbilt.

Vandy doesn’t put a lot of players in the NFL..but Jay’s talent was too much to ignore.  His arm was a cannon and NFL scouts coveted him.

He was the most popular kid in school!

You think that might go to his head right?  But no, not Jay.

Jay never cared what people said.

He always made time for me.  Whenever Jay had a bad game he would say to me “hey”  and I was like back to him “hey”.  We nodded our heads at each other like cool guys do.  Then he flicked his cigarette on the floor and then he would look at me and…

Kicked cann

Jay was always my Fonzi…

But college would’t last forever.  It was time for Jay to move on to the NFL.

On April 29, 2006, Jay was picked in the first round.  He was the 11th pick overall and the third quarterback taken in that draft after Vince Young and Matt Leinart.

Mile High Staidum cans

Both of those guys are probably giving foot rubs for nickels right now…but Jay would go on to have a good career and I would be with him the whole way!

First stop:  Denver!

Those were great times.  In three years Jay threw for 54 Touchdowns and over 9000 yards.  His final year in Denver was particularly impressive, he threw for over 4500 yards!

But they always say nothing good lasts forever.  The Broncos fired Coach Mike Shanahan after the 2008 season and hired Josh McDaniels who built himself quite a reputation as an offensive guru for the Patriots in 2008.  McDaniels wanted his guy so the Broncos traded Jay to the Bears for Kyle Orton, a 1st rounder and a 3rd rounder.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears

The Broncos would go on to draft Tim Tebow in the following draft.  Hah Hah – they deserved him!

Jay kept kicking me in Chicago.  Jay had a pretty good first season with the Bears passing for over 3600 yards and 27 touchdowns.  However, 2009 was his best year in Chicago for some time.

I’m not going to lie – times were tough in Chicago.  There was a lot of can kicking.  But it wasn’t always tough – in 2015 The Bears brought in Adam Gase as their OC and they set a franchise record for offense with over 5500 offensive yards.  That brings us to Miami where, as you all know Adam Gase is the head coach and managed to bring Jay Cutler out of retirement.

So this season look for me I will be at all the Dolphins games.  You can kick me if you want…

    How can a hurricane out of the East shift east? It can’t it can start heading north, then less to the west, but it can’t start shifting east until it’s going straight north. Lol😁

    • stangerx says:

      Coming from the East means you are heading West If it did a 180 wouldn’t care less if it did south or north in btwn.

      • steveccnv says:

        Exactly, that’s the only way it can shift east, so why do we keep hearing if it shifts east…?

      • stangerx says:

        Because the projected track already includes a shift north, but exactly how far east it ends up makes a huge difference. You lived here….so you how that can mean the difference btwn losing your house or just a big rain.

  5. jetsssuck says:

    here’s some social media report6s from local people on the islands that have been impacted so far

  6. ocalarob says:

    If the projected path shifts a little farther east S FL may be in the clear

    here’s someone who live on the beach who got directly hit with the outer bands several hrs ago.

  8. steveccnv says:

    Walker: the NFL made the right call to postpone, that’s horseshit. You should’ve asked the players, before making a decision. The NFL basically didn’t want to deal with it. The excuse was the players needed to time for storm prep., but they didn’t ask them.

    • ocalarob says:

      This is a serious situation, this storm will kill people, making jokes about the heading and worrying about a game being postponed from the comfort of your basement in Nevada is lame

      • steveccnv says:

        This is a football board, if you want to cry about the storm go to Twitter.

      • steveccnv says:

        What joke I’m pissed they fucked up our season. So these guys leaving town to play in say Atlanta has exactly what to do with storm stuff that can’t be handled by someone else in the players family? What if the game was originally scheduled to play in Atlanta, they wouldnt have cancelled it, why is that different?

      • steveccnv says:

        So because you’re in “Ocala” it makes you the authoritarian on the storm?

    • jetsssuck says:

      the players being asked probably was part of the equation but I think their input was small. The safety of the fans was consider also with several other factors. It seems like the news stations have determined the tv coverage is too much. They are playing regulary scheduled progrogram now.

    Ray Lewis went to bat to get Kaep to the Ravens, but here is how it turned out. Mika would be proud.
    ——————–

    According to Ray Lewis, the Ravens were just about to sign Kaepernick, but: “Then, his girl goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. Steve Bisciotti has said it himself, ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?’”

    The “racist gesture” Lewis is referring to is a tweet from Diab, which uses a still from the movie “Django Unchained” to paint Bisciotti and Lewis as master and slave:

      Thanks JS. That is comforting. Know am at least as safe as relatively could be. And no glass in my doors…..you’d need some weapon they don’t legally sell to punch a bullet through them. Am more worried about the after. How is your hurricane prep running?

  14. herdfan says:

    After they canceled the game in Miami and mentioned Pittsburgh as a possible neutral site I got sort of excited. Had my sister all ready to go with me again and this is her birthday weekend as well. Would have been fun. Oh well…..,

      When they are little i get so nervous handling them because they feel so breakable. My last one had to be taken a little early and she was between 5 and 6 lbs and they just feel so crazy small.

  16. manitobafinfan says:

    HEY Herd: are you able to make Live draft tonight 20:00 PM ESTT ??

  17. D says:

    They probably picked him up just to keep us from re-signing to our PS, or to lay claims to him while they figured out what they would do with Kerley. Re-signing Kerley probably put him as a PS type player for them so they had to cut him and hope he passes waivers in order to sign him to their PS, which means we have another chance to pick him back up, if of course he is someone we liked as much as we let on we did.

    • D says:

      Sorry this was to be in reply to Piggy about Stringfellow.

    • D says:

      Im still under the assumption we are working something out with another player that will be put on pur 53, and we are leaving the PS position open so we can re-sign whatever guy we kick off the 53.

  18. D says:

    Guess we will be waiting for week 2 to finally watch a Phins football game.

  19. CavalierKong says:

    I haven’t seen any of the Fins or Bucs players/coaches opinions on the storm and what they would have liked to seen the league do. I am actually pretty curious about how they feel about the decision to postpone rather than play a neutral site. My natural assumption is they would rather be on hand to take care of them and theirs, but maybe that assumption is wrong. They do have resources most of don’t have.

    just completed our fourth hurricane drill and things are looking up for these kids. Another 2-3 times and they may break their fastest time to assemble and do all the before hurricane drill. Watching these kids working together really makes feel proud.

    Here’s a tip for you concerning electrical power outage.. You can use your back up battery for your computer for lights if you don’t want to use your gas generator or if you don’t have one. Use a 4-5 watt night light and it could last a long time if u take it out of socket. you can also use a flouraestant 14 watt light bultb ibstead of 60-90 watt. You can also charge you phone battery with back up battery. Turn your phone off during night to conserve battery power.Both you and wife don’t need both phones on at same time if your in the home .Tell everyone now to try either phone if one is turned off.. Get 100-200 feet of outside hose and place it in sun to use for hot water to take shower. Unscrew the pressure nozzle and disconnect the hose ends and have one end of hose elevated walking toward the other end of hose. Cook several meals in advance so u don’t have to use power generator as much..fill your freezer with filled water jugs then transfer them to refrig to keep the refrig cold longer in the event of losing power and if you have generator the refrig will work less and in additrion u can use the melted water as clean drinking/cooking water..

    • stangerx says:

      “.fill your freezer with filled water jugs then transfer them to refrig to keep the refrig cold longer in the event of losing power” like that one……and just did it.

    • jetsssuck says:

      another thing you could do for your phone is buya extra battery for it- the retail electronic stores are not that busy and having a extra charged could power your phone longer.Have your smart phone internet favorites minimized to just the essentials and find weather radio channel. You don’t need to waste battery time so get on and off phone as quick as possible.The weather news casters will be able to provide you with information.

      • stangerx says:

        Thanks JS — will suggest to my wife. Don’t even use a cell phone, but the battery thing might some in handy later for her. You are real tech savvy though for a guy your age….my hat is off to you.

      • jetsssuck says:

        “your age”—– LOL

        We’ve met JS…..given you props for being more on the tech curve than me.

  23. Mike E. says:

    Kong

    I posted something that Landry said yesterday about him and the team, that they’re ready to play, and hope they can play and keep the BYE week. Not sure if he’s speaking for everyone involved, but it makes sense. If they were playing the Raiders in LA, there would be no question if they would play, it was only because the game was scheduled in FLA. All these guys have their families taken care of. My neighbor has 2 kids that are U of M, and they had to fly them home. If they can do it, I’m sure any player can make sure their families are safe. As for their houses, not much they can do but wait.

    • Mike E. says:

      But Jarvis Landry explained Tuesday why that’s unappealing: “Listen, it’s a long season. Let’s be honest about it. It’s a long season, and I think the stretch after our bye week is probably one of the toughest – if you want to be real about it – probably the toughest in the NFL. That bye week will give us an opportunity to kind of get some guys healthy. In this NFL, in the league, you’re going to get banged up week in, week out.

      “For us, that bye week, it comes at an appropriate time. For us, to keep it there would be huge; but I know there are unfortunate situations and it’s out of our hands and it’s up to the NFL and the teams to decide what happens; but we could use that bye at that time.”

      • steveccnv says:

        The but at the end says it all, he’s pissed they’re losing the bye week, but it doesn’t matter what the players think Ocala says they should play the game week 11, so that’s word.

      • jetsssuck says:

        I heard him yesterday approve of the decision strongly. He must be bi-polar or maybe he learned how to win at every decision by playing a politician by speaking out of both sides of their mouth and that trump wants to get rid of in the swamp. He wants to get rid of these guys. Do you like how I doubled down on this…

      • Mike E. says:

        Once it’s done, they may as well try and put a positive spin on it, but I can guarantee you when week 11 rolls around, they’re gonna wish they had a BYE week.

  24. Mike E. says:

    I think it’s bad for us to lose the BYE week. I’m sure it would have been a challenge for them to schedule the game at a neutral site, but I have a feeling if the Patriots were in this situation, the NFL would have found a solution better than what we got.

  25. ocalarob says:

    Wow, Just got done battening down the hatches, what a job!

  26. ocalarob says:

    I think we’ll be all right without a bye, not to long ago no one had a bye, one week to rest up should be plenty,

  27. stangerx says:

    Turns out Irma won’t hit FL after all…….but yeah the headline is “This is how big Hurricane Irma is compared to Iowa.”

  28. Mike E. says:

    I’m glad it’s not going to hit MIA, but shit, can’t they put the game back on, maybe Monday night?

  29. ocalarob says:

    I hate Byes, 2 weeks without watching miami sucks

  30. ocalarob says:

    south and north carolina should be paying attention

  31. D says:

    Not having a Bye keeps the players more focused. Now they might be focusing on their injuries, bruises, or general soreness and fatigue, but they will definitely be more focused.

  32. jetsssuck says:

    Lets not get overconfident,it can still turn earlier or later. We saw this last year or year before with hurricane going up the coast without it hitting directly. The predictive models are showing about half showing a different turn time. The outer hurricane wind bands are still getting affected by the islands. This could have a impact on speed and directions. South Florida is not out of danger yet.

    In Dolphin news the dolphins took down the bubble built by saban for only the 2nd time.

  33. Brian in NY says:

    I don’t understand why the game couldn’t have been moved to Thursday or Friday.

    • pheloniusphish says:

      Because the 100’s of first-responders that it takes to put on a game will be busy managing the evacuation of people.

  34. jetsssuck says:

    Univ. of Miami cancelled their game without a make up date.

  35. D says:

    We have a hospital in Sint Maarten we work with and i have been working with closely over the past few months. I am hoping they all came through this ok, today was the day it passed over their island, and i see reports that are really bad, but nothing conclusive to know what level of devastation they endured. I mailed them just now, and since hospitals are one of the first places that get opened back up maybe ill hear from them and get an update. Im sure the french side of that island is obliterated, since most the houses there are just thrown together with whatever they can get their hands on to build with. Dutch side, where this hospital is is a bit more structurally sound, but a lot of it on that side is in the same boat. I know some of the islands were reporting 90% destruction and approximately 60% of the population is now homeless.

    • jetsssuck says:

      There are websites that have live views of web cams on all the different islands. Face book and earthcam are some web sites to check out. This is better that the news stations in s.florida

      • D says:

        Alot of the web cams got taken out, or at least two footages i have seen you watch until it goes to static when the gamera gets ripped off its mount.

    —————————————-
    Thats the nice answer, but if you want to know the real answers just follow the money.

    My bet is the television revenues would be hurt and economically that made the owners vote to just close out the bye week. The contracts they have with Sunday Ticket, which are blacked out by the Thursday night games, and there are no contracts drawn up for a Friday game, so someone was going to lose money. They probably couldn’t get contract work done with another team on using their facility and working out how to split the gate three ways, etc.

    As easy as the concept of just moving it to a different day within the same week was, and the fact that it would work out best for the players if they kept their Bye, and the fact that first respondents in a different town could have been available, point to this being about the NFL and keeping their contracts fulfilled with TV, along with still having the same splits in revenues internally.

    • D says:

      Friday would have made the most monetary sense as it would be a day they weren’t competing with other games for revenue, there are no blackouts because no one has a contract for Friday games yet. Still that kind of negotiating takes months to work out so no way they could have gotten that done in a short time. They also figure the bitching and moaning about moving the game to a day that most people couldn’t attend would have the attending fan base in an uproar, so giving them 11 weeks to work out the schedule flip was better, and would have kept more people for demanding a refund. Again, it boils down to money and which was going to cost them the most to change it. The one they chose was the most acceptable financially.

    • D says:

      Sorry i should have said, that’s the nice answer, now let me give you the version from this D-bag lol.

      • jetsssuck says:

        I don’t think financial loss would come into play because most business’ have business interruption insurance which usually is covered under most commecial policies for large business.
        My works for the big bad walnart people that most think and says about them. She told me some small business’ in houston that didn’t have insurance and lost everything and was n’t given or offered help in low interest loans from feds were given FREE restocking from Sams to help them stay open as small business’. Costco hasn’t done this. Now really all this bad talk about walmart is just not right.

  40. pheloniusphish says:

    D – As you may or not know from the board, I do business in Key West running the airport screening operations. The last three days have been spent on evacuation and that will continue into Friday. 10’s of thousands of residents are evacuating into and through Miami-Dade and that’s not counting tourists. All of the hospital patients are being flown up to Miami area hospitals and as of Friday morning there will be no medical services in the Keys. None. Now they are starting to evacuate parts of Miami-Dade. It is an incredible strain on emergency responders. I really don’t think money was a factor.

    • jetsssuck says:

      I recieved a email message from Miami VA and they are closing Thursday till Monday. This according to them has never been done. Jackson being a locally paid hospital across the street from va. I don’t know what their status is. Maybe they have to stay open?

  42. herdfan says:

    If you think just about playing a football game, yes, the game could have been played a few days earlier but this isn’t just about this game. So many other factors, not the least of which is making sure everyone is prepared and hopefully evacuated. I don’t think throwing a professional football game into the mix is really anything they need to add to the list.

      Leave it up to Mando to come up with some retarded scenario like that. So what are they going to do with all the tickets they’ve sold? I believe the Saints winning the SB after Katrina had something to do with league favouritism, they seemed to get every call that year. Maybe we can be paid.

      Greetings from across the pond mob.

      Good to see FFR and D back and hope FFR is keeping his SOH – sounds like he needs it.
      Happy Birthday to everyone!
      Congrats on being a Grandpa Son.

      Just a quick comment on this – the Wembley game sold 90k tickets in less than an hour. The Bucs Fins game wasn’t sold out a week ago and there’s less than 70k capacity for HRS now? Fans are travelling from all over Europe, from Israel I saw one tweet and many from the US, all of whom have booked flights and hotels. Also, I’m going. So the idea of moving the game back to the us sucks (sorry ER).

      Anyway, onto the bigger issues. Our prep for this season has been beset with setbacks, but I think Gase is a great motivator and he will keep the team together. Out of adversity, sometimes great things can happen. Even if not this year, this adversity will make us stronger for the next campaign.

      The even bigger issue is Irma, though. That is like nothing I can imagine, as we don’t really have events like that. I’ve flown on the very perimeter of Sandy and in other storms, but this beast looks like something from nightmares. I really hope this thing avoids land or at the very least takes as few casualties as possible. Much as we all love the Fins, football isn’t life and death it’s just entertainment. This hurricane looks like it has the capacity to cause devastation and even wreck the new stadium if it has a mind to. Stay safe Floridians and get the **** out of dodge.

      All the best

    The house we own in West Palm Beach should be boarded up by now. It’s about 8-10 miles inland, so sea water damage will not be an issue. All home owners protected by Citizen’s Insurance are liable if the cumulative damage from Irma in Florida exceeds the assets of the fund. The VAST majority of Florida owners have their coverage thru Citizen’s, including us. Home owners COULD be looking at paying the fund an additional $5,000-$10,000 or more, depending on the total damage amount statewide. Cases of “Our house got blown away and WE STILL OWE another $8,000 to the fund” could be numerous.

    CRUNCHED the numbers on the issue of play/don’t play Bucs/Dolphins game Wed. or Thurs. nite.–Some time after the storm, I’ll run them on this site. They are VERY interesting!!!

    Tampa area could get winds of 25-40 MPH from this storm. But everyone in this area should be safe. Those who decided to “cut and run” yesterday are staring at several days of sitting in traffic jams on I-75, and NO HOTEL ROOMS, food, or water to go to.

    Based on satellite data, Hurricane Irma’s eye is roughly the size of metropolitan Detroit, at about 1,300 square miles (3,400 square km), the Detroit Free Press reported. Hurricane-force winds (at least 74 mph, or 119 km/h) extend 50 miles (80 km) from the center of the storm, and tropical-storm-force winds extend 185 miles (298 km) from the eye, according to the National Hurricane Center.

    Here’s something interesting Turkey nuclear plant is being shut down and to start it back up they are going to evacuate the surrounding area. I remember when this nuclear plant went on line and we didn’t evacuate anywhere in fact the news stations was having a field day reporting from outside of the gates.
