After seeing what happened with Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russel, it'd be safe for me to say it'd be a terrible decision. Never put everything you have behind a quarterback who has yet to prove himself at the professional level. It's different if you have the pick, but to trade for it is questionable.

Hey I never said to trade him, just to not consider it would be foolish. The top pick and unload a ton of salary. According to most here Bens best years is behind him and maybe 3-5 years tops left.

But I understand the old saying "one in the hand".

According to most here? That's a stretch. I think most people here want him to stop taking sacks so that his best years will still be in front of him. A few curmudgeons here don't seem to think he had any "best years", behind him or yet to come.

As far as i'm concerned, Ben's great years are still ahead of him. It was just last year they we're saying he was in his prime, and Brady and Manning have both been playing at elevated levels every year when healthy, and they've both been in the league longer. As long as the line holds up and Ben get's rid of the ball earlier, we'll be okay.

I agree, he's got to throw the damn thing away when nothing's there. That alone will give him a few extra years to play. He is in his prime at this point in his career.

Yeah Caldwell was never the OC in Indy. That's not to say he wouldn't know what to do, but I don't want him hired just because he's a buddy of Tomlin's. You don't hire friends you hire the right man for the job.

Good point. Can't believe I didn't think of that

As Jim Caldwell tracks the downward career path of Jim Zorn?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...insubordinate/

Zorn left as QB coach after allegedly having issues with Ravens OC Cam Cameron

Seems whomever the new OC might be would not be thrilled about Caldwell also being on the staff as a potential rival
