19 Days to Go

Something I was thinking about as Jay Cutler whined his way out of Denver: under no circumstances do any of you trade Big Ben for two first-rounders, a third-rounder and Kyle Orton, right? Of course not.

But if he bellyached about his feelings being hurt for six weeks straight, and wasn't returning Mike Tomlin's text messages (good lord), then, well, I'd actually think we'd all be happy if the Steelers got what the Broncos did. Assuming everything else is the same, I suppose Pittsburgh then re-signs Byron Leftwich, maybe makes a play for Mark Sanchez with the 12th-overall pick -- or, even better, drafts a freaking offensive tackle.

Luckily, it's not something we have to worry about, but stuff I contemplate given that nothing else happens this time of year.
