Disaster if Brady goes down now....so I hope it happens.

Dear Rest of NFL,

Stop trading high draft picks to the Patriots for crappy players. If they're letting him go, he's not all that. The player you get from the Patriots will not help you win a super bowl. The pick you send the Patriots may help them win a super bowl. Do you enjoy watching them win super bowls? Knock it off! :evil:

Sincerely,
Me

Thankfully it wasn't a first round pick. Thought for sure someone would give them a #1 for him.

So, the 9ers are idiots.

Difficult to understand, why teams continue to deal premium picks to the Pats for meat puppets?!

Pretty sure Brady has an ironclad "no-trade" clause in the form of an extensive video library and non-Patriot playbooks.

This is interesting to me, I think he can do well with Shanahan as his coach and OC.

This also has some ramifications if he does well with the second half of the season, maybe the 49ers don't draft a QB in round 1, maybe they don't go after Kirk Cousins.

Hypothetically, say Ben retires after the season, has had enough, calls it a career.

Would be really nice to have a couple of veteran QBs like Alex Smith and Kirk Cousins to pursue as free agents. KC may move on to Mahommes, Cousins doesn't want to be a Redskin and they aren't going to pay him. Yes, this may all seem like sacrilege to some, but if Ben does retire, those two QBs could very well be a nice bridge for the next 3-4 years until we draft/develop our next franchise QB.

So, I want Garrapalo to do well for the 49ers, one less team to pursue free agent QBs and first round QBs in the draft.

Texans acquired CB Jeremy Lane, a 2018 fifth-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for LT Duane Brown. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7617/jeremy-lane

Not a bad trade for Houston IMO. From what I've read Brown was unhappy in Houston holding out for a better contract. This move improves both teams. Seattle's OLine is a mess and the Texans needed another decent corner in their secondary. Not to mention a few good draft selections for the next 2 drafts.

ask the Browns how that is working out. They are winning the draft !!!!

And why give up a 2nd round pick for a QB that will have to be franchised? Garoppolo is an UFA next season.

Yup, he could be back on the cheats roster by the start of next season. The fact that the cheats don't have a single backup QB on their roster now is kinda dumb on their part. marsha goes down they have no one. Rumor has it Hoyer is in line for the backup spot though.

It’s Brady and Belicheck brilliance on the field....and Kraft and company having vision and balls to trade a guy who was probably going to be difficult to sign so instead of letting him walk, they trade him for an extremely high pick!

What would Art2 and company have done????

No damn well they let him walk.

Browns fans watching Deshaun Watson on Sundays would probably disagree with you there.

It doesn’t help that the Pats have a coaching staff that more times than not gets the most out of any player that steps on the field for them.

Well kinda makes sense. Brady is from San Mateo and the Patriots said that Garrapalo was their future this week, so pick up the phone and see if they want to move on.
Pats did a bait and switch, lucky the Niners didn't get stiffed for the extended warranty and the undercoating

Please rewatch recent regular season Pittsburgh vs Miami game.

Blount has been okay, but hasn't matched last year, and their depth at the position was nowhere near Ajayi's caliber.

If I'm the Iggles, I do this deal just to keep him off the Cryboys' roster.

Too bad he can't play LT.

I'm still perplexed as to why the Dolphins only wanted a 4th rounder.

Except Kony Ealy....and Brandon Browner, and Donald Brown, and Terrance Knighton, and Barkevious Mingo. And that's just from the last year or so.

The Pats coaches/front office is great, don't get me wrong, but it's not like they don't make their share of fuck-ups. For some reason people here build the Pats into some sort of infallible authority.

Get with the program!! The draft is won by the number of DRAFT PICKS!!!! Not by the players performance. Browns for the victory!!! :D

Look at all the picks they got for Wentz. WIN!!

I'm not sure I wouldn't put Gase and his staff on notice rather than dump the young, cost-controlled Pro Bowl RB for peanuts. They lost Tanneyhill when? You really expected the "You can do it!" H.S. rah rah BS and Jay Cutler to inspire guys over a 16 game grind (now with no bye week)? It's a lost season. You don't compound that loss by giving up useful assets for nothing.

Ajayi has/had a bum knee coming out of college. Arthritic, bone on bone stuff from what I recall. His career won't be a long one. Miami has been run blocking for shit this season. I don't think Walter Payton would produce behind them. The dolphins seem to have two young RBs in Drake and Williams whom they like. I think Ajayi's health is a ticking time bomb.

B2B will find that interesting. I don't think I've ever seen a bigger fan of his.

Here's another interesting almost trade apparently....

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns attempted to trade for Bengals No. 2 QB A.J. McCarron before Tuesday's deadline.

Per Schefter, a deal was "close," but couldn't be finalized. It's the first we've heard of McCarron since August, where his name was a mainstay in trade rumors. The Browns are casting a wide net at quarterback, but continue to lack decisiveness as they search for an answer under center. McCarron is headed for restricted free agency next offseason.

I sincerely don't understand why Carolina traded Benjamin. Can someone explain that?

And apparently the Browns were rejected in both the Garropolo and McCarron trades. Makes you wonder if both QB's lobbied against it. Edit: Apparently not, per DP39's post.

Bengals and Browns actually agreed to AJ McCarron trade at 3:55 pm, per source involved. Bengals approved trade to NFL, Browns did not. :lol:

He's inconsistent at best. Hurt and out of shape a lot too. I'd say he's lazy and wants to get by on his natural talent more than anything. Not traits Jerry Richardson or Ron Rivera look for in a player is my guess.

And apparently the Browns were rejected in both the Garropolo and McCarron trades. Makes you wonder if both QB's lobbied against it.

He's inconsistent at best. Hurt and out of shape a lot too. I'd say he's lazy and wants to get by on his natural talent more than anything. Not traits Jerry Richardson or Ron Rivera look for in a player is my guess.

That's fair. It's just odd since they're competing for their division and don't have a terribly good group at receiver.....yet they gave him up for only a 3rd & 7th.

They can draft another smallish, pass-catching RB for next year with that 3rd rounder, Pabst.

Realistically, Funchess and Benjamin kinda make each other redundant, no?

He wants to be paid next year and the Panthers didn't plan on keeping him. Better to get something now I guess. They have his replacement in Funchess and it allows them to get Curtis Samuel on the field a lot more now. Since drafting them, Samuel and McCaffrey on the field at the same time was always the future plan, imo. Future is now, apparently.

Bengals and Browns actually agreed to AJ McCarron trade at 3:55 pm, per source involved. Bengals approved trade to NFL, Browns did not. :lol:

Man, how would you like to be a fly on the wall of the Bungals QB room tonight or tomorrow? :o :lol:

IDK, man-- Funchess has never outperformed Benjamin. Look at the stats this year:

Kelvin Benjamin 8G... 51 targets... 32 rec... 475 yds... 14.8 YPR... 2 TD... 62.7% rec/targets
Devin Funchess 8G... 58 targets... 33 rec... 357 yds... 10.8 YPR... 3 TD... 56.9% rec/targets

B2B will find that interesting. I don't think I've ever seen a bigger fan of his.

Here's another interesting almost trade apparently....

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns attempted to trade for Bengals No. 2 QB A.J. McCarron before Tuesday's deadline.

Per Schefter, a deal was "close," but couldn't be finalized. It's the first we've heard of McCarron since August, where his name was a mainstay in trade rumors. The Browns are casting a wide net at quarterback, but continue to lack decisiveness as they search for an answer under center. McCarron is headed for restricted free agency next offseason.

THEY WERE BUSY CELEBRATING THE TRADE AND FORGOT TO HIT 'SEND.'

Dumbest franchise in the history of sports.

I might guess it was down to the wire, and CIN approved the trade expecting CLE to accept their last counter. CLE decided not to, and time ran out.

Crazy to me, though, that you just drafted Kizer and in an 0-8 season you're already fishing the back-up QB barrel. Kizer probably isn't the answer, but that offense is a dumpster fire and you have to give a guy who wasn't NFL-ready more than 5 games.

I'd say CLE was lucky they didn't do this. Get the #1 pick in the draft, trade back a few slots and grab a legit QB prospect.

I hear you, but Funchess is similar, hasn't had the work ethic issues, and is cost controlled for a while longer. Still, given NO coming up fast in the rearview mirror in the division, not sure I'd have been selling.
