Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It's hard to know who to be more frustrated with: the brand-new, Bill Belichik-style youngster, who'd barely figured out his I-25 from his I-70 before dumping half the team and infuriating his star quarterback, or the pouty, preening, interception-prone quarterback himself, whose skin appears to be thinner than the mountain air.

Get together and figure it out Josh McDaniels and Jay Cutler, and not via telephone, like you apparently attempted to do earlier this week. Look at one another in the eye.

Oh, and don't let the millions and millions of dollars between you and the hopes of an entire city bother you. Make sure you treat the Denver Broncos like a backyard-fence line, perfect for passive-aggressive antics, seething anger and big-dick contests.

Wake us when its over.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
