where are you pulling that info from? no way that rodgers, brees, luck, newton, manning, kaep or wilson get moved... i can't see a scenario where any GM puts so much juice into a trade that sways any of these teams to move on from these guys.
i guess it's one opinion vs. another, but really???
His point is that everyone has their price, and even Rodgers would get shipped out of a town if a team offered the Packers their next decade's worth of first and second rounders. I.E. if offered the next hershell walker trade even an elite QB in his prime could be moved.

I disagree that everyone has their price when talking about sure fire hall of fame QBs in the peaks of their careers. The backlash would be so insane as far as ticket sales, and let's not forget how powerful social media has gotten. Imagine the media storm. No ******* way. But it's a moot point in the Ryan Mallett discussion.

I get what you're saying about their plan for the next two years but I think that's them banking on Tom being back (both figuratively and literally) in 2015. I just don't think Mallett is in their long term plans at all. He just isn't a good fit in that offense. If the plan is for McDaniels to eventually take over for BB, how can he think Mallett can operate in it when his short and medium range accuracy is spotty at best and awful at worst? He's purely an old school throw it downfield off of play action type of passer.
They drafted Garoppolo because they can't/don't want to afford to re-sign Mallett to be the backup after 2014. It's a pretty basic situation that I'm not sure why people are struggling to comprehend and arguing with me about. They drafted Garoppolo now to give themselves as much opportunity as possible to get Mallett's successor right.

Just like they did when Cassel was entering his last year and they drafted O'Connell in the 3rd. O'Connell didn't work out, so they had to take another swing at it with Hoyer. Hitting on 1 out of 2 is easier than hitting on 1 out of 1.

He's thrown 4 passes in his career in complete blowouts 2 years ago. Saying anything about his accuracy is just silly. He's never played with decent receivers or a receiving TE in the pre-season.

Yeah, but at some point it becomes worth the shitstorm like when the rams traded away Bob. If you're getting a decade's worth of first and second rounders I think you can afford to say **** what the fans think.

Yeah......Rodgers is absolutely getting traded for a decades worth of those picks. Any player is. You can afford to trade up to take the number pick in any year you see a replacement, with numerous picks left over.

That said, that will never happen.

Back on topic tho #AndreJohnsonisapatriot
