    Oh I'm not saying the Texans aren't going to trade for him. I think it's actually quite likely. I just think what people in here think we will get is beyond laughable.

    All the rest is just your appeal to authority logical fallacy. People often turn to logical fallacies when they have nothing else. You're not the first.

    Kenny Guiton, Keith Wenning or Logan Thomas, probably in that order.

    Except it was all just rumors. Players don't fall 85 picks based on rumors. They fall a round, at most, and probably not even that much.

    That's how i see it. if Houston offers something good they take it even if it is along the lines of a 2nd round swap and a 4th, although I still think belichick will push for the #33 before accepting less. He won't take less value than he spent, he will keep him if a 4th is the best offer.

    Its not a logical fallacy, its speculation, just like you are speculating that Mallet is mediocre. I bet there was a packers fan back when favre was playing that was all "grumble grumble, this mediocre rodgers is trash nobody will give us anything for him"

    I'm speculating that BoB would value mallet as a 3rd+5th round pick, as being a BETTER option, then drafting the best QB available at number 33.

    You are arguing.... well i dont really know what you are trying to argue with me about. I think you are just shouting angry words because your drunk.

    3rd is good value. If anything else comes over, it would be a plus, in my honest opinion

    My memory may be off but I thought he admitted to using Oxy pills and denied injecting heroin. But again it was a while ago.

    The fact that you have to make sh*t up does nothing to help you.

    I'd be amazed with anything higher than a day 3 pick for Mallett. He is nothing better than a sweetener to maybe swap slots in some round.

    We are losing him next year anyway, I would like Glennon, we could draft one or pick up a free agent as well. Some good third or fourth round prospects: Savage, Murray, Mettenberger, Thomas.

    someday maybe a couple of decades from now, a poster on this forum is going to start a pointless arguement with someone that is saying essentially the same exact thing as them and everyone else is going to say "man you just SB39'd it."

    Not huge Mettenberger fan, because he can't seem to keep his hands to himself...outside the field, that is.

    I would think a swapping of 2nd round picks would be the best the Pats could do by trading Mallett, but a third seems more likely.

    I'd love to see the Pats pick up Glennon as a back up; I like what I saw of him in the preseason last year.

    Yes but we would still get a comp pick out of it. We don't get that if we trade him this season, so I have been putting forth a scenario that sees 3 QB on the roster this year, Mallett as primary backup, #3 as understudy to move up after one year is under his belt, and we end up with a comp pick that would have approximately the same value if we traded him for a 3rd round right now.

    So if Mallett never gets traded, will people be upset?

    The best thing about this debate is that it gets settled in the next 48 hours.
