    I would trade Mankins for anything, including a bag of crap.

    #87 Jersey

    Hell I'd trade him for just the 4th. Anything else is bonus...

    All these threads & thoughts are bogus. Mankins is in control of where he would or would not go and for how much $. If there's info that Detroit AND Mankins want this then I'm all ears. There isn't so it's simple fanboy jerking.

    I would think he's too small to play in the 3-4, you couldn't play him NT and move Vince to tackle which means he'd either have to move to end or only play on sub groups.

    Lot of money for a sub guy to be fair.

    Nah. Tommie Harris' best years appear to be behind him.

    No.. His reputation is built more on name/draft status then actual play on the field.
    He's 6/3 295..

    Plus he is always dinged up.. His knees are the greatest (even though he's only missed a couple of games the past few years)

    PASS. .

    At this point I would trade him for 10 maple bats.

    This. Tommie's injuries seemed to have taken quite a toll on his play. At one time a trade like this would have been great but not any more. Harris as an impact player is long gone.

    Maybe I thought too much of you but I figured you'd be above a fail pic post. Someone pee in your cheerios this morning?

    This.
    Living here in Chicagoland, I can tell you the fans here are not happy in the least with Harris's performance of late.
    No way! Stay Away!

    WE have Mike Wright and Myron Prior in the "undersized penetrating sub rusher" role already. Not sure what Tommie Harris does for us. I'd rather have a higher pick.

    There are seemingly 9,000 Mankins threads, and this one poses a question in the title, only to set up yet another "Bash Mankins" thread. The O.P. could have made his point in the Schefter thread, just for example, without using the Harris nonsense as cover.

    The Harris "nonsense" as you so eloquently put it was the POINT of the NEW article that Shefter wrote today. Are we not allowed to talk about anything new? Why not just do a mass merge of the whole board into one thread since we've been beating this whole Patriots topic to death for years and years...

    There's already a thread on Schefter/Mankins. And how is trading a top shelf player for a guy who can't keep his job in the 4-3 and a 4th not nonsense?

    You figure Belichick has started down the Meth path or something?

    Obviously you cannot read....this was an idea brought up by a very reputable media member in Adam who knows a lot more about the game and what a decent trade would be for both sides than a forum member at patsfans who knows virtually nothing outside of TV and stat books

    I like his idea

    Schefter's opinion >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Deus Irae's opinion

    No wonder you get bashed more in here than a wife of Ike Turner

    Our offensive line has done ok without him, so I say yes.

    1. It's a PatsFan.com thread which are routinely awful since none of the article is posted so people comment without reading it leading to everyone falling in line with their m.o.

    2. That thread was about a completely different topic than this one. Schefter proposed trade a trade idea that he felt would work but likely wouldn't happen. Is it ok to discuss a separate topic in a separate thread?

    Next time we'll check with you first...

    Like I said, I'd trade him for a 4th straight up.

    Ok kids gather round for a lesson.

    Losing Mankins in free agency equals a 2012 3rd pick. Does anyone else know what ALSO equals a 2012 3rd round pick? Anyone? Anyone at all? You in the back! Yes Jimmy Johnson (draft value board creator) that's a correct a 2011 4th round pick DOES equal a 2012 3rd round pick.

    Mankins IMO is a 4th round pick value

    And it would be perfect for the team to get Branch literally for FREE other than contract money by getting thier 4th pick back if they choose to do a trade before the deadline....I don't think they will because they may want depth but he is not missed so why not get a 4th for a guy that could be sitting on the bench?

    I don't want to see this OL change in week 10 if it continues to play well and protect Brady...good OLs stay together consistently as they know what each other is doing and staying on the same page...sitting someone for Mankins in week 10 based on his past play would be dumb if the OL has done well up until then.

    Besides Mankins is not suddenly going to be a run blocking stud for us

    I have a lesson for you: don't be a condescending douche. Think it over a while.

    Yeah I agree with you all the way. I was making a separate argument that even if we kept him we wouldn't be getting anything additional for doing so.

    Run Blocking isn't a weakness for Logan Mankins.

    No!

    But would there ever be a chance to trade him to Dallas who has serious line issues right now and in particular a guard issue..

    I am thinking Ware??? :D

    we might have to throw something else into the pot but geeze ware would come with a hefty price tag to finish out his contract..

    However I think our OLB pass rush problem would be solved!

    Ha my bad man I felt like neither you or DI were adding anything to the conversation about why he's worth more than a fourth. I was trying to make a point that people here often forget about draft picks. Wasn't trying to be a douche. Both you and DI are ok by me.
