Having Manning and Luck back to back was a lot of fun. Awesome football, lots of hope every year, and made us forget about the 80’s and 90’s. But the ultimate goal is a Super Bowl victory. We won a total of one in those glory years. And in reality, we were annihilated in ‘most’ of our big playoff games. Maybe building an awesome ‘team’ around an above average QB going forward might bring us better results. Might not set us back at all.
I was listening to some Houston reporter on the radio and he said the Texans are trying to trade Clowney for a starting left tackle... so yeah... AC for Clowney might make some sense if we are going full on youth movement, but I kind of doubt it.
Sure, I see where you are coming from, but even last year, Luck was a big part of the reason we went to the playoffs and won a game. He's super talented, and without him I think this team with Brissett will push for 7 or 8 wins at best per season. Trading away these players and losing Brissett next year, we would have tons of draft capital and could fill our holes before 2021, where I think we can tank for the first pick and get a super talented QB with a stacked young roster to take us to the promised land.
