Teams trade up for QBs


Recommended Posts

I would trade Brissett for whatever I could get for him and try to swing a deal for Foles (most likely getting a pick in return). Foles with Reich as the coach would do well and would be a great 2 year "trainer" for our new franchise QB..

I'd love to get another second round pick as the one story suggested.

Brisset is probably best suited to be a backup QB.  And given what happened this year, probably with another team.  We can pay some of his contract since we have the space.  Let any new QB develop r start without having the previous year's starter looking over every mistake.

I've seen Love in the second round in several mock drafts - so I would call 13 a reach. Tua won't last until 13, so I agree there, but I wouldn't take a chance with his injury.

CBS just said Patriots  are considering  Love at 23 if he's  there

No no no. No to foles. That's  no better  than Brissett

Yeah, I’ve got Gordon in the third right now.  Watch the EWS this weekend - there’s a riser named James Morgan at Florida Int’l that’s getting some head turns at practice.  6’4”, 213.  Unimpressive college stats, but seemed to be a running O.  Captain Morgan...hmmmm...those letters could start coming from sea...

 

Gordon will probably  go in round 2 at latest especially  if he has good  senior bowl practice

Right.   Sure.   Nick Foles equals Jacoby Brissett.    Except for the whole part where Foles has won a SUPER BOWL!!

 

Hello?!? 
 

Are you forgetting something?

Foles had lucky stretch. Other than that he has sucked every where he went. Heck Gadner Minchew just beat him out. He can't  drop back and pass all that well needs to rely onl other tricks  to be effective.  If we trade for Foles we will not only be wasting  money, but will be picking in the top half of the 2021 draft

Gardner Mi shew didn’t beat him out.  Foles broke his collar bone.  The Jags didn’t okay Foles the rest of the way so he wouldn’t get hurt again. 
 

Foles has not sucked everywhere he’s been.   You’ve got some bad info.

Look at his stats. Other than philly with chip kelly his numbers  have been pedestrian.  Brissett  like.

That is not why Foles got benched. Foles lost four games in a row and they went back to Minshew.

I got that same thing in the back of my mind too...

Foles has 2 years left on a very reasonable contract and played well under Reich before. I'd take him in a heartbeat. Having said that, there's no way in Hell that the Jags would trade him to us. The best we could do is get into a three team trade where Foles goes to the Raiders and Carr goes to us..

We have more than 30m in cap space than the Raiders.  Maybe the Jags ship him to us in a three way knowing he will end up with the Raiders.  We take the cap hit versus the Raiders.  We ship Foles and the pick to the Raiders for Carr.  We end up with Carr and our 13th, 34 etc.  I'm not a cap guy so maybe this doesn't make sense?

I'm not buying that Jordan Love is a first round pick. I haven't bought it then and I'm not buying it now. 

I feel confident  he will go in first round just not sure which  team will take him

Oh I think he will be a 1st round pick because teams are so QB happy.  But I don't believe he's WORTHY of a 1st round pick.

I believe the only two QBs worth trading up for are Burrow and Tua.  Otherwise, I wouldn't pick a QB in the first round. And that includes Herbert.  I get a QB like Gordon or Fromm top of 2nd. I predict Gordon will go higher than 3rd.

In most years he wouldn't be, but this is a strange year. Besides the usual teams that need a QB, we have aging QB's that need to be replaced. The pats and Saints pic low, they would take him. The chargers and steelers need new blood too.

    • I would be really interested in picking him up, at least until we get Campbell back. The guy has some skill, he was just stuck on a garbage offense.
    • Titans definitely have the easier schedule. Cleveland has a great running game, OL, and defense, but Mayfield is below average and OBJ is gone. Jax and Detroit are flaming garbage, the Texans are bad but Watson can win games by himself. GB should present a challenge to Tenn. Regardless of our game this week, I see Tenn only losing to GB unless they fall asleep against Cleveland or Houston.   On the other hand, while we do get to stomp the Jags for a late Christmas present, you can never count out the Texans with Watson under center like I said. LV is a dangerous team, especially when Carr is on top of his game. Pitt is just a loss IMO, I just don't see us beating them at Ketchup Field. I would predict at least one loss, maybe two if we don't play well against LV or the Houston Watsons.
    • He’s not a superstar stud WR. But he’s not bad, either. I wouldn’t be upset seeing the Colts take a chance on him. 
    • Not bad takes, but I would think the loss of Buckner will impact the Colts defense much more than the Titans missing Brown at LB. Not to mention the Colts will also be missing their young stud LB in Bobby Okereke for this game too. He is every bit as good as Jayon. Also missing Autry is huge with Buckner already out. Indy basically will have no one to play the 3tech DT spot which is so vital to this defense. 
    • I hope they win. But I am also realistic realizing without Autry and Buckner this is going to be s very tough game. I never said they would lose. Just that I don’t like our chances very well. This isn’t about losing Buckner but not having Autry either. We are ok without one but both?
