I do not like our, as human beings, inability to discern sarcasm in text messaging.
I was late getting to the bar Sunday, and I got a message from my buddy Berg. All it said was "Looking solid so far."
Great, I thought. We might have a chance.
But when I got to the bar, the harsh reality of our cold, digital world smacked me upside the head before I could even order a beer: 21-3 San Diego, early second quarter.
I should have stayed in bed.
So which J.C. did Jay Cutler play like?
John Clayton: Indecisive, poor, pathetic.
Jay Cutler: Solid, decisive, improving.
Now, we're still in this thing. Cutler definitely improved on his 4 for 11 first half, with a couple of quick touchdowns to open the third quarter. But the second was merely a nice tip by Tony Scheffler to himself; it's very possible that one might have been picked off otherwise.
But we're nitpicking here. Cutler played well enough to conceivably come away with a victory - if the Broncos weren't playing the best team in the NFL.
And, no, I'm not being sarcastic.
