Sure, you could land a great "prospect" with the pick that the Bears acquire, but the draft is a huge crapshoot. 3 players are better than 1. That's just how I look at it.
I'm sure 32 teams wish you were a GM of another team if you'd take what you got over what the Bears.
I'm not trying to "piss you off." But every GM looks at the trade value chart. And the chart values what the Bears got for Jones over what the Bills got for McGahee. And I'll take a high 2nd rounder over a late 3rd tthis year, a 3rd next year, and a late 7th this year. Two quarters and a nickel don't a dollar make.
