    I don't know why I thought about this trade offer but what if SF offered a first and Patrick Willis for Tom Brady? Would you take it? What about a first, a third, and Willis?

    From SF's point of view, would they even consider this offer to be realistic?

    No. Tom Brady won us 3 Super Bowls and there's no reason to think he can't win us a few more.

    Jesus! A month and a half ago, people wanted the Pats to sign Daunte Culpepper and bench Cassel. Now they want to keep Cassel and trade Brady. Stop!

    If Brady was 2-3 years older, I might consider it. But Brady has arguably 5-7 more years left in his career. Too early to trade him away when he is still the best football player on the planet.

    Hey, I did say hypothetical. There's so many threads out there about what we'd get for Cassel, so I wanted to get opinions also about what you guys might trade Brady for, assuming you would even ever trade him.

    i also think they can now get rid of Scott Pioli and hire you to be the VP of player personnel for the team...awesome!

    No...no...I'm not Bob Kraft.

    I'm but a typical DUMB ARSE that agree with someone that thinks the Patriots should trade Tom Brady (the face of the franchise) to another team...

    A better one would be would you have traded Bird after 1986?

    There is a price for everyone. If we were offered Willis and SF's next 10 #1 picks we would have to do it. The question is, what is the point that you would do it; just for fun.

    Peter King suggested the Patriots wouldn't do it for Barrett Ruud and two #1s. Turn Ruud into Willis and move those #1s up . . .

    Brady for Willis, a high #1 this year and an unknown #1 next year. Mayo and Willis in the middle. Draft one of the top ten studs in this draft, there's some DBs, OT that make me drool.

    I'm not saying I'd do it - but I'd be REAL tempted. And this thread can be just for fun.

    So should Brady put his house up for sale or not?:D Asking people to come up with trades to get rid of my favorite player isnt really fun.

    Nah, the trade would be TOO big. It's fun to talk about what your realistic price would be though. And to imagine Willis and Mayo in the middle.

    I'm inclined to agree. This is just for fun. What if, instead of Brady, we traded Cassel for a similar return? Say, Barrett Ruud and Aqib Talib? :D

    It's tougher with Cassel because his value will move up and down as he plays. But, right now, I just saw Peter King say he'll get about $10M a year. What is a proven $10M a year QB worth ? I hate to end up disappointed but if a team is willing to pay a QB that much I fail to see how we wouldn't get a #1 pick out of it. FOR SURE a #2.

    Oh, not after tonight.

    But let's say ol' Matty raises the goosepimples on Madden's arms by throwing for 250-400 yards, 2-4 touchdowns a game, goes undefeated and wins the super bowl.... and throw in a couple of end-of-game drives a la the Jets game, but they are Ws not Ls...

    Nobody wants to say it, but with the "just for fun" stipulation in place...

    Aren't we back to 2001 then, albeit with higher stakes?

    The face of the franchise loses the job to injury...??? Can't happen!!!

    You guys forget that nobody had brought the Pats to a serious SB run prior to Bledsoe. You can't count Eason. Hell, you can hardly remember Eason. Eason made you want to just go back to underperforming b/c that Bears SB was so embarassing, and it was so clear so soon that he was not a force to be reckoned with.

    Bledsoe was the first Pats QB to really be reckoned with since the merger. And Brady? He was this kid that just managed the game while the maestro was down.

    Nobody's had back-to-back 400 yard games since Billy Volek. Where is Billy Volek now? But Volek didn't end up with a SB ring. Volek didn't even take the starter's job for a full season.

    So, let's say Cassel's 2008 ends like Brady's 2001... better, even.

    There, I did it. The can of worms to trump all cans of worms. We ain't there yet -- stipulated. Also let me repeat, I am taking full advantage of the "just for fun" clause.

    What if we get there? What if Cassel throws for 30TDs, zero additional interceptions, runs the table in the regular season, and takes the 2008 Pats to a SB victory?

    Then who do you keep?

    Wait let me do it to myself...

    STFU PFnV!!!!

    Even if the Patriots were willing to do this, there would be

    salary cap problems with Brady's prorated bonuses.

    What gets me is that Cassel has played well with Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Brady won 3 SBs with WRs that have had no success anywhere else. What happens to a Cassel-led Pats if Moss or Welker go down?

    #15 Jersey

    Like it or not, there is an official QB controvery. Not so much who is better, that is obvious, but for armchair GM's what can I get for...............
    So, just for fun here goes. The Patriots could revamp their defense by adding three studs, a shutdown corner, an athletic LB, and lets throw in a hard hitting safety to go along with Merriweather who is starting to look really good. The Pats swap #1's with..........Detroit, then trade that pick for multiple picks and a player that is either traded to a third team or kept. Imagine if the Patriots had hands down the best defense in the NFL with their current offense (I'm just saying).
