I think you succeeded in making a suggestion that several on these boards would take very seriously, and subsequently burst vessels in their brain cavities. Well done!

oh... im not through yet.

just imagine if we could trade ben and batch to arizona for leinart, st. pierre AND their first rounder (which we would subsequently couple with our own first to get bradford!)

it would be like striking black gold 'n yellow gold! we would possibly have a 4th string qb who could kick off into the endzones!

well ummmm....if he's proven guilty, somehow i don't think a "trade" is gonna happen. there's that whole pesky prison sentence thing to work around....

Yes but somehow he'll get out of it or it would be minor, and chances are it will be tied up in court for a very long time. So IF the Rooney's believe he could be guilty, then i could see a trade and i wouldn't mind the trade with the Cards. Leinart and a 1st rounder, then possilbly trade down into the late first or early second and take Colt McCoy. Then you have Leinart play a season and let McCoy take over in year two and trade Leinart for a 3rd rounder or something.

I also like the trade with the Skins idea, 1st rounder maybe 4th and Landry. That would be an awesome trade IMO and assuming Rams take Suh you get whatever QB you want.

Ben is truly a franchise q-back and if he is innocent then this would be a waste of an idea. If guilty then this is a possibility as I personally would have a hard time watching him play (after he is out of prison).

Saying that the only q-back worthy in this draft is Clausen. He has the chance to be great. The others are posers in my opinion.

Batch is too old and gets hurt all the time. Dixon is a good second stringer and has the chance to develop if given time. He looked tenative in the Ravens game but still performed well until the interception. I thought he was going to get snapped in half before the game but he proved me wrong. I think they should draft a qback to "develop" if there is one around.

And what exactly is Ben being accused of? The public doesn't even know yet. All that we know is that it's 'sexual assault'. Do you know how far ranging that is?

It could be anything from touching her to rape, it doesn't matter, if he is charged for anything then it's a huge distraction to the team and i just wouldn't be able to watch him play for us anymore.

Matt Leinart -- are you f'ing kidding?

If we did lose BB to the penal system, I think you'd want to trade for an old vet and bring in another young guy.

Maybe get Leftwich in here and Draft Lefevour in the 2nd.
