2 other things: - a trade to SF got JG out of the AFC - SF at the time of the trade was in line for the 2nd or 3rd pick each round, so about #35 overall. One miscalculation by BB was not factoring in that JG would arrive there and win about 6 games in a row, pushing the pick into the 40's. He should've negotiated a little extra protection against that happening, which he could've gotten cause nobody even in SF foresaw that happening. Jimmy was an awesome prospect and I hated to see him go that cheap. But given the rock and hard place the Pats were in, they did what they had to do, and got Hoyer's services on the cheap for a couple of seasons which wouldn't have been possible with any other trade.
