Let's Trade Brissett To Cowboys


Recommended Posts

I hate to see any player get hurt in the NFL.  But I figured if a team got desperate at QB, it would be the perfect time to dump Jacoby Brissett for a draft pick.  The Cowboys are in trouble likely and it would be a perfect time to move Brissett.  He is gone at the end of the year anyways so might as well get something out of him, since they likely won't get a comp pick if he signs somewhere else since we will sign free agents ourselves.

Yeah, I don't know if Jones would want Brissett.  Ballard should at least reach out.    I'd be happy if we could get a 4th or 5th round pick for him.   However, he may have more value for us this season.  He's good insurance for us. 

Fitz would be the best option for the Cowboys.

I see that not Brissett, but Chad Kelly, got mentioned in one media story about the Cowboys' situation.

Dak Prescott, who was exceptional to start the season, is already out for the year after fracturing and dislocating his ankle against the New York Giants. Rookie Ben DiNucci and veteran Garrett Gilbert are now the only healthy QBs left on the Cowboys roster. Dallas will need to add another quarterback in the next week, but what are their options?

 

The most high profile QB on the market is still Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49er hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, so Jones might not want to take a chance on the rusty veteran. Kaepernick would also bring even more drama to a locker room that’s already on the verge of crumbling.

 

There are some other notable free agent quarterbacks available for the taking, however. Drew Anderson and Drew Stanton are two veterans who could pick up the offense rather quickly. Chad Kelly, DeShone Kizer, and Shea Patterson all have upside as young players, but they might not even be upgrades from DiNucci.

Yeah. Imagine if they sign Kelly and he ends up getting them into the playoffs

In that division many QB's could lead them to the playoffs I think.

with their defense, that's the most likely scenario

And I read that their decimated offensive line got mauled by Washington Sunday. Six sacks. The opposing pass rush would give Swag the opportunity to showcase that speed he brags about.

Long before the game was lost, the Cowboys were defeated on the line of scrimmage. Their rag-tag battery of blockers entered FedEx Field too light for their weight class vs. Washington’s vaunted defensive front. And when quarterback Andy Dalton was injured in dirty fashion, the unit lacked any sign of protective instinct or fight in a 25-3 beating.

 

How far the offense has fallen.

 

It’s not just because of Dak Prescott’s Oct. 11 ankle injury that the once-high scoring Cowboys have lost their way. It would have mattered little who was at quarterback Sunday behind a protection unit as overwhelmed as this one.

Oh man...if Kelly goes to DAL and has some Tony Romo type emergence and leads to them to playoffs...this place might explode. That would be fantastic to watch.

His mobility would actually serve him (and DAL) well. No idea about the rest of his game though.

Cowboys are better off taking chances with Air Gordon (Anthony Gordon) off the street (is he signed by any team?) than sign QBs with a limited upside and expensive contract.

Hopefully Chris and Jerry talk to see if a trade could be worked out.  Chris might want to reach out to the Patriots as well.  I would think he could help out NE much faster.  This is the time to try and move him.

Sounds like a good idea. I'm sure they'll give up a first and take on his contract. Amiright?

 

They'd only owe him about $3m. I'd even be okay with the Colts paying the remaining salary if they're willing to give up a fourth.

I love Anthony Gordon and would love to see him get a chance. I just basically want to get rid of Brissett for ANYTHING!

I know that feeling.  Not rational, but I really want to move on! haha

I would only if we were mathematically eliminated this season.

It wouldn't be ideal, but I'd do it for the pick. And I'd re-sign Chad Kelly (based on the basically zero information that we have about Kelly, but I'm assuming he knows the offense).

If all we would get is a 5th or 6th then no way we should trade him

I definitely think trading him this season is out of the question.  We've already planned for his presence on our payroll despite his actual pay.  If we trade him after this season, it probably can be assumed we resign him in a backup roll and thus much less than $15 million per year.

 

Assuming a backup QB pay, I'd definitely trade him for a 5th.  But I can agree with you in the sense that that 5th rounder could be a swing and a miss.

Not sure it's truly QB friendly. I think it diminishes the need for athleticism, but requires grey matter and the ability to read Ds and progress well. NE also has historically installed a lot of opponent-specific packages weekly. Brady didn't have to be freak, just had to be smart and efficient. And he was both.

Brissett is a decent backup QB (look around - he’s perhaps the very best backup QB available given he knows Colts system and can step right in) - and any team with playoff aspirations needs two capable QB in case starter is injured (for a few plays or longer).  Having one would leave us exposed.  Trading Brissett for a draft pick is shortsighted.  He would command very little in return and whatever we would get would be a draft pick in the future.

    • I have to admit, this was the first time this year that I was disappointed in the guys on this team. They actually looked bored, of all things. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd say it looked like they were told that the Titans were given the win by the league in this one, and they didn't have it in them to even make it look like a real game.   Now that's how it looked.   In reality, though, it did look like they, for whatever reasons, couldn't find it in them to be up emotionally for this game. And there's no other way to describe that than extremely disappointing. And as a result, it left me increasingly bored with the game as it went along. So much so that it took me three viewings to complete it. I actually fell asleep on two different occasions trying to finish it.   BLECH!!!
    • Agreed doesn’t make it any less disrespectful.  
    • Don’t like it, but they backed it up.
    • I think Manning and Condon engineered Manning's way out of Indy...and there's a decent chance Irsay was involved. That team was really bad...and Manning wasn't going to spend his last few years on a team with an aging crappy roster with little hope of getting back to the Super Bowl. I think Manning's legacy was incredibly important to him...and he felt he had unfinished business.   Manning's last contract was actually signed in the summer leading up to the 2011 season...less than 7 weeks before he would have the neck fusion. They were in a lockout that offseason...and it wasn't resolved until 7/25...so Manning didn't sign his deal until 7/31.    But at that point, he had had failed TWO surgeries (one in February and one in May I believe)...and still couldn't throw the football 5 yards. There is a fantastic WaPo article out there that chronicles Manning's neck injury and recovery. Manning knew he couldn't throw...and that it wasn't getting better...and because of this and him having access to the best medical care...I think Manning also knew what he would have to do...in regards to the fusion surgery and other treatments (like the stem cell treatment he got in Europe).   But the interesting part is that Irsay, who knew Manning better than just about anybody (and I am sure knew about the surgeries and maybe even Manning's current status), didn't bother to have even a basic physical before making Manning "the highest-paid QB in the NFL"...as he insisted on doing. I know QBs are treated differently...but that what type of business owner makes that type of investment without due diligence (or how does his inner circle of advisors let him). It would have been akin to Ballard giving Luck a big extension in the summer of 2017 when Luck looked like he weighed 170 lbs.   Either Irsay was aware of it all and was involved in Manning's exit...or he took Peyton at his word on his health and was ultimately duped.   But considering they both agreed to include a massive $27M option bonus due the following spring...essentially a poison pill that would end the contract if there even any question about Manning's health...I think it's pretty clear they both knew there was considerable risk due to Manning's neck. But the rub is that it was actually Manning (and Condon) who insisted on the roster option...and I think they did it because they knew what was coming and knew the Colts wouldn't/couldn't pick it up. And they even made the option decision due 5 days BEFORE the start of the league year...so that the Colts would have to pick it up to even trade him.   Basically...Manning would be a FA and would get to choose his next team to cement his legacy...and the Colts would rebuild...which is what Irsay wanted. And most of the fanbase would accept and understand why he left. It was pretty ingenious actually.       
    • I want us to face them again in the playoffs and beat them, just like we did in '18 with the Texans.
