Rubbish. When your previous team pulls out of the sweep stakes it diminishes a players value. Why would a team offer him 30 million a year when the Saints r willing to say bye bye? The Saints apparently r wanting to keep Hill, who has thrown 13 passes in his career, over Bridgewater. If he was a franchise qb, the Saints would have kept him and tapped Brees on the shoulder.
Jason Garrett was key on directing the offense. An offense that had Prescott throwing the ball 40 times with limited runs for their big time RB. Prescott is average but not worth what he wants. That being said, players should demand money because it’s all short lived so make the money while you can.
JB 2.0?? How’s that? Explain that terrible comparison.
That's why I said I'll trust Ballard & Co. I don't know how Reich and Ballard have QBs ranked. It may not be a reach to draft a QB at 13 (or to move up or down to get one they like). However, unless they've got a lot of confidence in a guy, I'd be not at all disappointed in them taking a stud player at another position of need. Taking a QB at 13 just to take one (i.e., if Ballard and Reich are not fully confident in him) would be a worse set back than taking a stud at another position and sticking with Jacoby for another year.
I trust the coaching staff and FO more than myself or anyone on this board to make those decisions. My point is, I don't think it's the end of the world if we're stuck with Jacoby for another season. There are plenty of improvements needed on this team which can be addressed otherwise.
The saints will let him walk if Brees comes back because money not skill. The guy went 5-0 as the starter not because the team was so great but because he played well. He will easily have the market in FA to get the pay day he hopes for. I could see him being good here the question is do we want that money strapped to us or do we draft a guy and keep JB.
The Carolina connection is only if Cam is not healthy. Thule already said if healthy he is exacted to have Cam at QB.
I see the Chargers and Dolphins going after him with the Dolphins winning the bid.
