I was just on msnbc's sports page and they were talking about the free agent Qb's and those who might be available in a trade if the price is right. And it got me to thinking as to why there have not been any mention of other Qb's besides vick and cassel. I think we can pretty much all agree that Coach Sing is GOING to bring in another qb to compete and I think we can all agree it won't be anyone worse than what we already have. With that said why no mention of these names for us....
Byron Leftwich: "Byron Leftwich would be my top free agent target at quarterback. He will come a fraction of Warner's price, and provides a high ceiling. This is former top-ten pick in his prime with a big arm and solid stats in his 46 career starts: 54 touchdowns, 38 interceptions, 24 wins, and a 6.7 yards-per-attempt average.
There are warts: his long delivery, lack of mobility, and injury history. But you don't make it to free agency without warts, and Warner also has plenty of shortcomings. Warner also has the perfect team around him who plays to his strengths. Leftwich could be successful if he was lucky enough to find a similar situation". So why not? what are the arguments here?
Trade Bate Mate:
"Matt Cassel will probably cost a first-round pick and change to acquire from the Patriots. Otherwise, the Patriots look prepared to keep him as expensive one-year insurance policy. Derek Anderson could probably be acquired for a mid-to-late round pick, but he won't go anywhere until Cleveland pays his roster bonus on March 15. Matt Leinart and Vince Young could also possibly be available for the right price. If your team doesn't make any free agent moves in March, they could be gearing up for a run at a trade in late April."
My thought: I would certainly not be upset with giving up a mid to late round pick for Derek Anderson. Any disagreements there? I am against Matt Cassel for a 1st rounder and I don't see the new front office making that move when we most assuredly need that pick. No on Leinart (another smith but slightly better) and no on young(and you all say vick can't throw) I'd rather have Patrick Ramsey.
So what are your thoughts on Bringing in any of these mentioned 25 backs.
