    I'm about as big a Welker fan as you'll find on this board but, if that trade offer was coming from anything but a top 5 team, I'd probably pull the trigger faster than Bob Munden.

    And if the offer was from a top 5 team you'd think about it?? Welker's been great for us, but he's also a 31 year old slot receiver who's taken a huge amount of punishment in recent years.

    ...and if the team pulled the trigger you'd have as many posts as "The Jets Still Suck". :p

    Hes having such a great year too.

    Its a king's ransom for sure but not for Brady..timing isn't right.

    Trading away WW is one thing.

    Trading away your franchise QB while the team is still a SB contender is another...

    Cowboys traded this guy named Herschel Walker for a bunch of high draft picks in the late 80s and won 3 Super Bowls in the 90s.

    Cowboys were not going to win a SB and HW is not a HoF QB having a MVP season.

    You [highlight]think[/highlight] about trading Brady in a deal that brings back Andrew luck as part of the compensation.

    That's it. There's not another trade out there that's worth even thinking about giving Brady up for.

    That's a very good point. Anyway we're just talking theoretical and as someone very interested in the draft, those picks would make my interest more..interesting.

    Err no he wasn't. He was making the point that a significant trade haul sets a team up for a generation potentially.

    Of course but it was a reply/response to my post about not trading Brady- not now.

    If this was 2000 and BB had TB at 35 years old and was staring a 5-11 season in the face (Jimmy Johnson went 1-15) then you pull the trigger on that deal.

    Just curious, I wonder how many Pats fans said that about Bledsoe, Packers fans about Favre or 49'ers fans about Montana.

    And no, I'm not comparing Brady to Favre and Bledsoe, just making the point that these transitions have to happen at some time. Now is not that time, but a year, two. This discussion could very well be had then.

    I'm still waiting for that second round draft pick for Brian Hoyer.

    Neither Bledsoe nor Favre was the best, or arguably the best, QB in the game at the time they were traded, and neither was a starter in the middle of a potential Super Bowl Season. Also, Brady hasn't been playing the retirement card and pissing off the fan base.

    I do agree with you about the years thing, though, although I don't know what the number will be. There will come a time where the "Trade Brady" option will be much more palatable to the Patriots fanbase.

    Only fan forum where the Guy leading the league in receiving yards is in the trading block.


    how about trade wes welker for a 3rd CB of bronco`s. Manning will be unstoppable with WES .

    It really isn't.

    Talking through a hypothetical is all.

    I am realist when i say he can net a 2nd rd pick or a CB who is 3rd CB in the picking order.

    He has to be given a long term monster contract , so the team which gets him must show some improvement after he is given that contract. That is why think bronco`s will be the candidate. Manning and Wes will be a great combination. If you get him to a crappy team no owner is going to offer a huge contract to see this investment do nothing. manning will be perfect , they get a shot to goto the SB for sure.

    Can you imagine Manning (either one)/Welker against our secondary? We would get TORCHED worse than we already do. The humanity.

    Except for the fact that if you compare players of significantly different quality, the analogy makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The Cowboys traded Walker, their only bright spot, because they knew they had to rebuild under Jimmy Johnson and they weren't winning anything with the way they were built at the time. How in the hell does that compare to the situation the Patriots are at right now?
