    Would the pats even trade with the colts? Too early to deal mallet wait a year or two and he ll be looking a lot better. Hoyer on the other hand...

    Re: Rumors Galore!! Could Ryan Mallett be traded to....

    That's right. We already let a starting QB go for a mere 2nd who I believe made the probowl as an alternate last year throwing 27tds and 7 ints. Sure it was the 33rd pick which is almost a 1st rounder but still, if anyone knew how good Mattie was gonna be they would of easily handed over a top 15 pick.

    As far as I'm concerned he is a giant piece of the franchise's future and trading Mallett should be weighed considerably regardless whether he was a 3rd round pick or not. Why not let the Colts suffer for their mistake of not grooming a QB?

    The main reason Cassel didn't net a first was that whoever picked him up would have to take his franchise tag with it.

    I tend to agree with this mentality. This is why you force a desperate team to pay overs if something does eventuate.

    Re: Rumors Galore!! Could Ryan Mallett be traded to....

    the whole idea is numb. many athletes have had this surgery and recovered to play again. If Mike Alstott can pound the pile after this surgery surely peyton can toss a football.

    When you are looking at a fillin for one year, as the colts are, you look for a vet, not a rookie.

    If cassel hadn't worked out in 2008, would you want the pats to have traded for a rookie for the rest of the season? Or a vet?

    I don't think Mallet's done anything to be considered an heir at this point, it's not about letting the Colts suffer, it's about putting the Patriots in the best position to win, if the Colts offered a 1st and 3rd for him I'd take it in a heartbeat. Maybe we can trade that 3rd to KC and grab Ricky Stanzi:rocker:

    No way it happens.


    I would never Give Hoyer to the Colts. I would never give Mallett to the Colts.

    I would want Indy to suffer severely:)

    Interesting point, albeit from the same source:

    Re: Rumors Galore!! Could Ryan Mallett be traded to....

    Your right. All we have has seen out of the kid is one of the best performances by a rookie QB this preseason. And 1 game against Detroit that everyone would like to forget. It's not much to go on but I think he's looked very comparable to some of the top QB's taken in this years draft. Everyone knows they messed up if they needed a Qb by not taking Mallett.
    I'll take my chances with this as him being a good replacement.

    The Patriots already have 2 first round picks next year. If the Colts were to offer their first for Mallett, I'd suggest we all help him get out of town.

    Package the picks, plus anything else needed, for the #1 overall. Get Luck (assuming his play continues to back up the accolades). Let him learn behind Brady.

    Manning's job requires precision, Alstott's did not, they're also different injuries. If Manning can't get the ball downfield quick and/or accurate enough he's done.

    Get real. Rookie Mallett cannot run the Colts offense. He has not learned how to spin around and flap his arms like a beheaded chicken's wings.

    Oh yeah, he did well in preseason games, well that settles it, he's obviously a more than suitable heir to Brady.:rolleyes:

    Mallett might work out or he might not, it's a risk, as is the potential benefit of trading him to draft someone else. If the offer is good enough BB will trade him.

    Re: Rumors Galore!! Could Ryan Mallett be traded to....

    If they offered their 2012 first, I'd be willing to bet that the Patriots will do it. It will likely be in the #7-12 range; great return on the pick for the Pats, and the Colts would be getting a first round talent in the first year of a third round contract.

    Even if Mallett doesn't pan out, it won't be any more wasted for the Colts than their last five first rounders.

    Sounds pretty awesome but given Brady's comments about playing for a much longer period of time, how long can you carry both salaries (TB and the #1 overall pick)? How long would Luck stick around awaiting his turn?

    Agreed, we don't need QBs, OTOH many other teams do and I think the bidding for that #1 pick will be insane, teams will give up crazy amounts in order to get Luck, which could set us up AMAZINGLY well to form another dynasty with all the loot.

    Why would the Colts want Mallet for this year????? He wouldn't be able to grasp their system as quickly as a vet like Kerry Collins. If they trade with the Pats for a QB it would be for Hoyer. Mallet is still learning how to brush his teeth in the big leagues.

    With the new price tags for high picks, they could carry Luck for as long as they wanted to. As for Mr. Luck's desires, well, someone can have him become buddies with Steve Young to help him through the process.

    Re: Rumors Galore!! Could Ryan Mallett be traded to....

    If it's true that the Colts are inquiring about Mallett, then it wouldn't be because they're looking for a QB to start this year. It would be to develop a QB for the future, starting this year. It's a move that you make if you want to get to work installing Peyton's successor now. He wouldn't start this year--that's why they brought in Collins--but he would be learning from Collins and Manning, and even if Manning comes back healthy and he never starts, his cap hit is minimal.
