So... with the Browns having literally no option at QB, the 49ers proving inept as usual, Brett Hundley demonstrating he doesn't have it, and the Cardinals without a QB on a worthy team, do we see any increased chance of Garoppolo being traded? I expect that the Patriots could get a decent return if they wanted, so any other views? Watching a ton of teams, especially as of recent, getting decimated by bad/injured QBs makes me wonder the value of ours.

Go ahead and post some realistic scenarios (or dream) that you would envision. If you don't think he gets traded, still post some trade ideas maybe for offseason too.

after they traded jacoby, there is no chance bill does without a backup qb this season.

that's what still makes the jacoby trade so strange to me.
I felt that if they held onto Brissett until now they could have gotten quite a bit more for him. Since the Browns and 49ers are both 0-7 without an answer at QB, Brissett would look somewhat appealing considering his decent time as starter.

Do we let Garoppolo go in the offseason though? Or tag and trade him, assuming that people are still interested

Not meaning to be a smartass, but I would think that 0-7 teams would have very little incentive to trade away multiple high picks (or a first rounder) to then need to pay that guy 20m dollars in the spring. It's not like they have anything to play for at this point.

They'd be much better off just waiting until the draft, where they'll have a high pick they can pay peanuts to for the next 5 yrs.

I agree with that. What do you think about the Cardinals or Packers (highly unlikely but putting it out there). Since both could be considered contenders, would a Bradford-like trade be envisionable?

Why would 0-7 teams (or crappy ines like ax) trade for a QB in the middle of the season? Why would GB give up a ton for half a season?

If we do win this year, that's what I believe will happen, too.
Since Brady's contract is extended for another year, wouldn't he have to give back part of his signing bonus? If I remember correctly, one of Big Ben's reasons not to retire was that he would be giving back a large chunk of his salary.

It seems like a dumb move for the future, but wouldn't some semi-contenders be willing to trade for a starting QB to save the season, instead of giving up on it? I'm specifically thinking about the Bridgewater injury.

Why. And who doesn't have a QB that's a contender?
