  1. What is this talk now about Wentz still possibly wanting out of Philly? Even after Doug was bounced. Jesus, what a delicate flower this guy has turned into.
  2. I don’t love it, as I would rather give up a 3rd this year (since we have multiple) instead of a 2nd next year, but I could live with this deal. With Stafford on the team and some expected upgrades at WR next year, a 10 win season should be within reach (assuming health of course). That would place that 2nd rounder in the 20s and a lot closer to the bottom of the 2nd round.
  3. Right. Forgot the Niners, although they have a QB problem themselves and play in a much tougher division than the NFC East. But the point remains that none of these teams present a tougher path than what he would have to go through with the Colts to come out of the AFC.
  4. Also, the path to the Super Bowl will be much easier in the NFC next year than the AFC. Brees gone, Rams held back by their QB, Seattle can’t figure out what type of team they want to be. The biggest challenges are the Packers and Tampa with Tom a year older. Besides the much tougher division with the Colts, you have to go though a murderer’s row to get out of the AFC into the Super Bowl.
  5. I agree that given his reasonable contract, and so many teams always think they are close to making a deep playoff run (which in fairness is often the case in this league), there will be a lot of demand for him. I would gladly give up the #19 and a 3rd for him (we have an extra one due to the Trent trade), but I don't know if that would be enough to get it done. Might require additional picks, either of the later variety (4th and/or 5th) or earlier rounds. It really wouldn't take much to get a bidding war started, and you know this team historically tends to do stupid things in those situation
  6. The more I think about this, the more I think the Skins are the heavy favorites to land Stafford. I think ultimately this sweepstakes will come down to WFT and the Colts. I'd bet that WFT will ultimately get it done because they will be willing to overpay like they always do. Add in the fact that they just hired Mayhew as they their GM, and it was almost a given they were going to make a run at Stafford. With Mayhew and Rivera on the same page, you know they won't need to convince Danny Boy, who is always chasing shiny objects and wanting to make splashy moves. The only question is how much ca
  7. I think you guys will be up with a nice haul for Stafford. Lots of playoff ready teams (or teams that think they are playoff ready) are in desperate need of a QB upgrade. And the recent success of older QBs is going to embolden some of these GMs to give up more than they might have a few years ago. But I think ultimately this sweepstakes will come down to WFT and the Colts. He would be a great fit on both teams. Both teams greatly enhance their chances to make a deep playoff run with him at the helm. I'd bet that WFT will ultimately get it done because they will be willing to overpay lik
  8. Why do people here think Pitt is a legitimate option? Last I heard Ben isn't retiring. He's going to call his own shot there and leave on his own terms. I think ultimately this sweepstakes will come down to WFT and the Colts. He would be a great fit on both teams. Both teams greatly enhance their chances to make a deep playoff run with him at the helm. I'd bet that WFT will ultimately get it done because they will be willing to overpay like they always do. Add in the fact that they just hired Mayhew (who drafted him) as they their GM, and it was almost a given they were going to make a r
  9. Yes, this is crazy. Stafford will pull a first round pick at a minimum. I suspect it will be at least a 1st and a 3rd, maybe a first and a 2nd.
  10. No chance that would get done a done for Watson. He will require 3 firsts at a minimum. Jamaal Adams, a safety (which is the most inconsequential position in football) just got traded for 2 firsts. And why would Houston ever have interest in Stafford. If they end up dealing Watson they would be in full rebuild mode. Stafford does absolutely nothing for them.
  11. This exactly. Given the scarcity of quality QBs available on the market and Stafford‘s resume, there will be heavy interest. Combined with his relatively young age in an era when QBs are playing great well into their late 30s, I think he will bring the Lions a healthy return in a trade.
  12. I think multiple teams will certainly have interest. And I disagree that Ryan and Stafford are the same. Stafford is younger and is the much better QB imo. Ryan has had the benefit of being surrounded by elite talent at the WR position his entire career, and has struggled whenever Julio isn’t in the lineup. As a Skins fan, I would be much more willing to give up draft capital for Stafford than for Ryan. Speaking of which, I’ve been saying in the WFT/Skins thread that from the day they hired Mayhew as GM I’ve thought that they would attempt to make a trade for Stafford. I fully expect them
  13. Lions actively looking to trade Stafford per Shefty: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30766102/detroit-lions-actively-seek-trade-qb-matthew-stafford-sources-say Like I said a few hours ago, I fully expect the Skins to aggressively pursue him given that they just hired the man that drafted him as their GM. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he was brought in specifically with this purpose in mind and this was part of the pitch in the interviews. I’m betting he ends up under center for the WFT next season (and the Skins will probably overpay in compensation to acquire him). S
  14. This is not a surprise and I was thinking that these front office hires could be foreshadowing a big move for a QB. There is chatter that Ron and Smith didn't see eye to eye on some matters. Ron is even quoted in one of these pressers as needing to be "on the same page" when asked about his working relationship with Kyle. Reading between the lines here, it seems that Kyle and Ron might have had different thoughts on team building going forward. Kyle, given his job, would obviously favor building through the draft and keeping draft picks. Ron might have been more in willing to give up draft cap
  15. From the “other show dropping” department, it looks like Kyle Smith will be leaving in light of the front office shakeup: https://www.si.com/nfl/washingtonfootball/.amp/news/whats-washington-football-team-exit-plan-for-key-exec?__twitter_impression=true This was inevitable once Ron brought in both Hurney and Mayhew into the front office. Mayhew gets the GM title, Hurney basically in Smith’s old role. It’s being reported that Smith already has interest from the Rams, Niners, Packers, and Raiders. Three winning franchises led by talented young former Skins coaches that know Smith well an
