Business time-out: Broncos’ Cutler-McDaniels conflict a repeat of ‘70s sitcom

YouTube video perfectly illustrates the absurdity of it all

Mike Taylor

As the Josh McDaniels-Jay Cutler conflict grows more absurd with each passing day and  a resolution between the Broncos’ new coach and the star QB appears less and less likely, I'm reminded of one particularly hilarious “Brady Bunch” episode, the one where Peter Brady (McDaniels) makes a volcano (Cutler) erupt and in the process enrages all of Marcia Brady's friends (Broncos fans). That episode, like this Broncos’ crisis, was steeped in immaturity, volatility and crossed wires. The similarities are uncanny. Click here to watch.

Check out the cast of characters and the video clip. Perhaps the McDaniels-Cutler feud and conflict in the Broncos’ family reminds you of another sitcom episode.  Let us know.

Josh McDaniels ... Peter Brady
Jay Cutler ... Volcano
Jay Cutler's Common Sense ... Green Ground Wire
Jay Cutler's Ego ... Red Positive Wire
Broncos Fans .... Marcia Brady and Friends
