There are far more serious issues in the world to be focusing on right now but let’s leave that very serious stuff alone for a bit and put all of our focus on a move that ESPN could pull off that would make all of our lives so much better in the fall, that is if there are NFL games being played.
I’m talking, of course, about ESPN chipping away a bunch of money and offering it to the legendary Jay Cutler to become the new color analyst on Monday Night Football.
So there is now only one man who could turn our Monday nights in the fall and early winter to gold, and that’s Cutler. Have you seen how big of a star he has become on that reality show with his wife? He’s basically the Smoking Jay Cutler meme come to life, just without the smoking.
We were so close to having this gold every Sunday a few years ago but the Dolphins stole Cutler away from Fox Sports right before the season was going to start and right before his broadcast career was set to begin.
Thanks for nothing, Dolphins!
But now is a perfect time to bring Cutler back to TV in a spot where he could really have a chance to shine. The world has obviously fallen in love with Cutler’s who-gives-a-you-know-what attitude and would eat up this news if it were to happen.
Could you imagine Cutler philosophizing every week on national TV while calling a sport that he used to kind of enjoy?
That would make us forget all about the the days of Booger McFarland and Jason Witten that we’ve had to experience over the past few years on MNF, which has been brutal.
Cutler has it all – he’s a former QB who knows how offenses work, he seems to be aware of how to entertain people with simple language, and he has the perfect amount of not caring about almost everything.
What’s not to love!?
That’s what MNF these days is made for – the games are usually far from the marquee game of the week so we could use some help to keep us entertained for those three hours each week.

We could use some good news in our lives right now!
The Rams debuted their new logos and it didn’t go well.
So the Rams had like two weeks to update their new logos after it got leaked online and got slammed by fans… and they decided to just roll with it. The team unveiled its new logos (one of them isn’t too bad) on Monday and got crushed again by fans. It also appears as if the Rams stole the logo of a small Texas college. So much creativity!
