Anyway, I wouldn't either. I have to tell you, it's getting so fucking old having to read 'FUCK BEN AND TOMLIN THEY BOTH SUCK TRADE BEN!!!one!11' because we went 8-8. I can't wait until next season starts and we can get rid of this shit. Ben and Tomlin aren't going anywhere and nor should they. The Giants missed the playoffs and there's no threads over there where stupidity is spewed out like 'I'd trade Ben for Kaepernick'.

Oh, how spoiled we are.
Isnt it amazing how some love them when we win?.....News flash: We dont win all the time!

Ben at this point is around 12-15th QB in the league but I understand why you wouldn't want to trade him. I wouldn't trade Flacco for another QB either because I have an emotional attachment to him being a Raven. Ben is savvy and tough as nails but he is getting up there in age for the type of QB he has been.

Newton is an attitude problem much like Holmes

Yeah, Luck's definitely unproven, but just from the hype he's got and actually proving it on a relatively poor team in a hard offensive scheme for any qb, let alone a rookie, to learn, I'd feel pretty safe in doing a straight up trade. He's basically a more athletic, mature version of Ben who can read defenses better as a really young player (comparing Ben's first year to Luck's)

And I think Newton's attitude problems were overblown by the media. Stretch run of the season he was great and didn't have any problems that I remember. An attitude can be fixed, especially in a winning environment with good guidance, so long as you nip it in the bud. I think he'd do well here. Ben had a shit attitude too when he was Newton's age.

You need to put down the bottle and get your ass to your aa meeting. And it's 12 steps not 14. Haha old drunk ass trying to troll.

How about instead of trying to insult fellow posters you try and contribute to the discussion? Calling me an alcoholic does nothing for anyone, grow up.
