This Laguna Beach episode between Jay Cutler and Josh McDaniels is getting pretty funny.
The man who you have blatantly stated to the media as “our quarterback” won’t respond to a text message you sent him? Things are far from being patched up. You guys are not on texting grounds right now. That’s like telling a girl you want to start seeing other people and then a couple days later TEXTING her and saying, “We r cool, rite?”
McDaniels: Yo J! Wats up bro? Jst wnted 2 let u no dat ur r guy dis czun! Cant w8!
Cutler: WTF, Josh? U xpect me 2 jus 4get evrything from b4?
McDaniels: IDK, I wuz kinda hopin u wuld. Juss LOL it all off?
Cutler: OMG, u r such a pig! Mandi told me evrything u sed. U wuld trade me if u culd.
McDaniels: I wuz JK. Ur r QB. Dis czun wont b da same w/o u!
Cutler: K. Fine. Wanna get cheez fries @ Diner wit Connie n Chuck?
McDaniels: Sounds gr8! Meet u there?
Cuter: Deal. TTYL!
I feel like I am witnessing 7th grade girls argue back and forth using ESPN and the NFL Network as their platforms. I’m almost as sick about hearing about this dilemma then I am hearing about Obama’s March Madness Bracket!
I know technology is all around us and times are changing, but text messaging is still a lame way to get in contact with someone. A.G. Bell would be PISSED if he knew we had portable cellular phones and we used them to type messages instead of talking. Is it too much to have a short convo over the phone?
Now that he didn’t respond, are you going to try and AOL Instant Message him? Maybe Skype him? Write on his Facebook wall? Constantly check his Twitter feed?
You look stupid when you try and make important contacts through technology.
(Yes, I’m still bitter.)

Or how about in 9th grade? I had a friend who’s girlfriend broke up with him through an e-mail.
And that’s not the worst part…
He didn’t check his e-mail until 3 days later.
“Will U mar-e me, plz?”
I know Cutler is being pretty childish too. I know he is acting pretty spoiled, but when it comes to being the bigger man and making ammends, use the phone, or fly to where he is and do it face to face. Nashville is nice this time of year! (Or so I hear.)
Sack up and make this better or else you may be looking at picking up free agent quarterbacks like an Aaron Brooks, a Charlie Batch, or even a Jon Kitna to salvage your ’09 season. Or you could maybe give Bubby Brister a call, or excuse me, text and see what he is up to? You could ask him if he is busy at all next fall. I’m sure he would come back for one more go around. At least then you could use Cutler’s jersey and just change the name on the back.
So let’s all start to act like adults. Better yet, let’s start to act like our parents acted before all technology was introduced. Anything would be better. Why not write a letter? You know how much that would mean to someone today? A handwritten letter. Jay would want to retire as a Bronco if you did that, Josh. Heck, smoke signals would even probably be better. Morse code. ANYTHING!
If neither of you are going to change, please someone call MTV so we can start recording this and get it on the air. I would much rather watch some drama filled reality show than another rerun of Parental Control.
