What about my snarky comment was wrong?
You say Brissett wrecked the Colts so lets hear your reasons.
Like I said, Brissett done what was ask of him and he did it well.
He was a team leader.
He is off the books now as far as having starters pay so can't complain about that.
He is not under contract so can't complain about that either.
I guess if he is signed under a back up contract you could complain about that I suppose.
if Detroit felt the capital they could get from San Fran was substantially better than what Ballard could give, I doubt if they'd hesitate to trade him within the NFC. And SF's picks in this draft are considerably higher than the Colts' picks.
On the other hand, if I'm Stafford, with my age and injury history, I'm definitely thinking (at least) twice about playing behind the 49ers' offensive line--it's built for Shanahan's run game, and its pass protection is considerably less dependable than Indy's.
I think the 49ers will have a hard time making this happen with Garropolo on their roster with 2 years left on a giant contract and a no trade clause. They would conceivable tie up $50-65 million of their cap over the next 2 seasons unless they move Jimmy G. Problem with that is who would be willing to trade for that Jimmy G contract and/or trade for Jimmy G in the first place? Whoever would trade for him would also have to be a place that Jimmy G wants to go otherwise he could say no. That seems like a lot to have happen here.
