    Certain guys are untouchable, Rodgers is in his prime, nothing on Earth would get him out of Green Bay.

    Brady on the other hand could maaaaybe be had. We know the organization isn't scared to part ways with an aging star, they've done it a dozen times including Drew Bledsoe who Brady happened to replace. Pats have Jimmy Garoppolo being groomed to take over, kids got everything you look for in a franchise QB. I could see Brady being traded at some point, he's said he wants to play forever, but realistically thats not going to happen, at some point sooner rather than later the Patriots will want to turn the keys over to the next guy they can get 10+ years from, at 38 Brady is simply getting too old. Guys that age could literally wake up next week and not have it anymore.

    But a desperate enough team would have to try Brady on for size if New England wanted to part ways. Brady's arm isn't a cannon either, he's slowly winding down.

    I am beginning to think I would rather just take a chance on Winston or Mariota than trade for Rivers. If you hit on one of those guys, they're with your team for 10-15 years and you know for a fact Rivers will probably be done in 5. I think the extra 5-10 years of a franchise QB is worth the risk.

    Thats really the best course of action at this time. Nothing we have the Chargers want, its a waste of time holding out hope this trade could happen, its not.

    SD has their QB, we need to keep looking for ours.

    Really the worst case scenario is we use the pick on Winston or Mariota, if it turns out they can't cut it we start Mettenberger and ship the other out without making it known why. Teams will trade future picks if this was done right.

    Plus the salary cap hit for rookie is nothing compared to what rivers will get. Yes people don't like mariota or Winston or whoever because we have missed on VY and locker. And none of these draft pics are sure things. But the QB position has to be settled. Now if could get the big trade , that would have to be seriously considered. But one good thing, mariota has not said he won't play in Tennessee. And the guy is clean. No off field issues, not attitude problems, and no accuracy problems. But it is the Titans we are talking about do anything goes here.

    I don't even think rivers has five years left. Maybe total but not many guys compete at a high level at that age.

    manning and brady are what Rivers will be age wise in 5 years, those two are still doing great things at nearly 40

    Listening to Cowherd a bit ago and he said that the rumors of Chip Kelly wanting Mariota are growing. We may end up with Bradford and a few picks.

    I like Bradford, but his injury history scares me to death. Ive watched him go down on routine hits, at least Mett is tough and gets up when others dont.

    Josh Norris did his final mock today and has us trading 2 to Cleveland for 12, 19 & 2016 3rd. ILL what kind of awful return is that?!

    Has us taking Gurley at 12 & Perriman at 19 to help Mett. Now I love Gurley but HATE Perriman. That, plus the awful return would really make me hate this.
