Hypothetical Mega Trade

Recommended Posts

Yes, although if we could swing it, I'd prefer we got JaMarcus Russell, the big dog from Turner & Hooch and meaty sized bag of M&M's (peanut butter). Failing that, a large poster of Debbie Harry in thigh length boots could swing it. "Oh Denis, obi doo......"

I think the better hypothetical question just to debate should be, would the Colts trade Andrew Luck for Patrick Mahomes?

I love this forum but sometimes this place gives me a bigger headache than my Intro to Mathematical Proofs lectures do.

Not enough to trade Luck away now. If it was a year ago when he may not of come back I would of said yes. Maybe for Carr and all 3 of their 1st rounders, just because Carr and Brissett could fight for the QB job, and we could build a monster team around them with 4 first round picks and 2 second rounders.

I would easily trade Luck for Mahomes straight up. In fact, I guarantee we'd have to include more with Luck to do it. Mahomes is 23 and Luck is 29. Mahomes is probably slightly better and has less wear and tear on his body than Luck as well. That's an easy yes and should be to anyone on here.

I wouldn't but I also doubt KC would trade Mahomes for Luck either. I trust Luck though to get us a SB.

I trust Luck as well. It has nothing to do with Luck's ability as a player or he's worse than Mahomes, it's just that Mahomes is on his level and is 6 years younger. That alone would give us a mini-reset where we could add 6 years of elite QB play to this team, along with Ballard and Reich, and I think we'd definitely add an extra SB or two to the Colts organization. Again, it's purely based off their ages and Luck's prior injuries, Luck and Mahomes are basically even.

Mahomes looks like the real deal and he is younger but he has to do it more than 1 year to prove to me he is truly great. He probably will but hasn't yet. Luck's 1st 3 years 11-5, 11-5, 11-5, and an AFC Title Game. Remember, people bowing down to Carr after 2016 when he went 12-4 and he looked awesome, he has stunk since then. I trust Luck, Luck has had 4 legit solid seasons with 4 playoff wins.

That's true. A year with 50 tds and 5000 yds is legit to me. That's Manning and Brady territory. Carr was nowhere near that. It's a hypothetical anyway, and we'll probably get 10 more years out of Luck before his career ends as long as he stays healthy. That should be enough for a SB win or two. I'm just basing it off the age, since I see them as equals. He'd be the only QB I trade Luck for.

Yeah Mahomes is really good, I wasn't sold on Carr but Mahomes looks like the real deal. Mahomes is a rare talent much like Luck is. To beat KC, Luck needs more help around him.

Agreed on all points. We'll get some help in this year's draft. We have an extra 2nd and 4th rounder, and are set up well. I can see us going BPA and getting some elite players early. Kind of the same situation as last year, we can improve at a lot of positions again, so I hope a couple good players fall to 26 and 34 and we snag them. FA will help as well, since we have the most cap space, and I'm sure Ballard will spend some of it if he sees guys we want. I'll say we reach the AFC Championship this year barring injuries and have a shot at the SB. Always takes a bit of Luck though (no pun intended).

I know it is always silly to count out the Pats but I could see a Chiefs/Colts AFC Title Game. One has to beat the Pats though and take down the monster!

I can see that being this year. The Chiefs are as good as the Pats honestly, I think Mahomes just had some early woes facing them this year. We are in good enough shape to beat them as well, as long as the O-Line is healthy and Luck gets another solid receiver (even Tyrell Williams may be enough). Brady will be gone within a year or two, and this may be the last time he's a SB threat.

I wouldn't trade Luck for 10 first round picks.

I was trying to think of a reasonable number that I would and can’t.  

 

10 picks I was thinking would mean the next ten years of first picks.  The last 5 mean nothing for the current regime.  You may not last that long and those players may not even know the current players let alone play with them.

I wouldn't make that trade. Mahomes is going to come back down to earth this year.

I wouldn't do it either. Luck is the more proven QB and showed me this past season he is back to 100%. He still has easily 5-7 years left where he can be great.

Even if he comes down to 4,000 yds and 40 tds, he'll still be just as good as Luck and younger than him by 6 years. Mahomes has 15+ years left, Luck has 10 at most with his injury history. There would be no reason to have blind loyalty to Luck if this hypothetical scenario presented itself. Mahomes would present an opportunity to extend our SB window with Ballard and Reich, a window we didn't get a chance with Luck because we had Grigson instead. Nothing to do with Luck being worse besides his age. On the same team, they are probably even, I just want 6 extra years at a SB with the same production.

I still wouldn't do it, Mahomes does have age on his side but Luck is still fairly young. If I was KC I wouldn't trade Mahomes for Luck either. So I see both sides of it. I do think at this moment Luck is more proven with 4 very good to great seasons. Mahomes only has 1 season to hang his hat on for now.

Ballard is going to give Luck more shots at a Superbowl then Mahomes is going to get at in his entire career. I believe in Luck. And who's to say Mahomes has 6 more extra years to reach a Superbowl? I mean the injury bug can happen to anybody the team can fall apart anything can happen.

It's just my opinion though.

Let's see Mahomes make the playoffs on a team run by Grigson and Pagano, with Pep and Chud as his O-coordinators with no OLine and THEN we can talk...

    • Incorrect terminology on my part. It's a roster bonus and not a signing bonus. Kevin Bowen had mentioned this on 1070 last week too.   https://overthecap.com/player/jacoby-brissett/4804/  
    • There is always an example that will support either sticking with JB as a smart idea, as well as an example of moving on from JB, as a smart idea. Fans tend to use whatever example supports which choice they personally want. Folks tend to cite the current situation with the Steelers as evidence that moving on is a good idea, yet ignore how moving on has served the Browns. There is no one answer fits all.   In this, I bow to the braintrust of Reich/Ballard. Frank was a very astute QB, knows what the position takes, and I feel he has a good pulse of what Jacoby brings to the table, both on the field and off, as well as preparation, meetings, practices and so on. I have seen Jacoby look like the guy that could become the long term QB for the Colts, and I have seen him look like a QB that has too low of a ceiling. How much of that is circumstance, is the proof in the pudding.    That said, I believe that the upcoming draft and FA opportunities for the Colts are really important, but every year is really important. I don't think this offseason "defines" Ballard's legacy any more than every year does. They're all extremely important.  
    • We need playmakers. i thought Pittsburgh was crazy to give a 1st for Minkah.   i was mistaken.   our depth is much better than past seasons.  If a game-changing talent is there... take him.  Otherwise, because of our top of 2nd pick, we can gather picks.  We could also move up if we want.  Im gonna trust in Ballard and not stress about it.   i heard that orangutan Has already met with Jim and Chris to discuss the upcoming draft.
    • Cowboys only have one tag.  It looks like it's either Dak or Cooper.  I think there best bet is to resign him before FA.
