    Is it just me or does Jay Cutler adjust his shoulder pads when he breaks the huddle the majority of times he is about to throw the ball? Does he have to tell?

    Maz - Come to think of it, Cutler does have a shoulder-pad tug habit, but I hadn't noticed whether he only does it on passing downs. Then again, that's why I believe we have the nation's sharpest collection of mailbaggers. Only a Broncos mailbagger would notice that Cutler is "tipping" his pitches.

    I'm guessing Mike Shanahan would want more evidence, though. I remember Joe Namath always giving his shoulder pads a push before he lined up under center. I would think the shoulder pads feel the same on Cutler's skin just as much on running plays as passing plays.

    Just bum rush his sorry @#$ and hit him so hard he'll have to open his fly to call the next play. That should take care of any "tells" he may have.
