The Cardinals have been flirting with a Fitz trade since he was drafted. I wonder why they keep trying to deal him... Something must be up.

I have been thinking it must be personal. In the off-season there was a ton of talk about him going to the Vikings - Can you imagine that? If Minnesota drafted a first round QB and got Fittzgerald to join there receivers with that defense and Peterson/Taylor? WOW... That would be a team.

I have heard a lot about McNabb going there but I don't know... The guy is so injury prone. Not saying it won't happen, but I wouldn't want him over a young stud (No matter what the risk) at this point in his career, that is just me.

Minnesota has said that they're not going to draft a quarterback.

I think the best way to address the WR position is through FA. It takes a couple years for WR's to really come into their own, and this team in it's current incarnation doesn't have a couple more years to wait. An OL through FA, and one through the draft, and a stud WR through FA would vastly improve this offense. But it would be really out of character for the Steelers to spend the kind of money Fitz is going to command, or give up the kind of talent Arizona will be looking for in return.

On a side note, statistically speaking, the 3rd year is traditionally the year that top tier WR's truly break out, and next year is the magical 3rd year for Santo.

And Nick Saban never left the Dolphins... Please, if a guy is there that they want Jackson better pray. The draft is all about deception. The Broncos told Jake Plummer not to worry about them drafting a guy because he was there man then they drafted Cutler just days later. Of course Minnesota will act like Tavaris is the guy, if they don't draft a QB he still has his confidence and thinks that was the plan the entire time.
