    What I'm saying is that we should have one player in mind and a good idea of where he will be picked (at least by the time the first 2 players have been selected and we're on the clock). We shouldn't drop lower than the first possible spot that player will be chosen. So making a trade with the number 5 slot may not be in our best interest if our top choice is the Brick since its very likely the Jets might nab him at 4.

    I think we have 3.5 players in mind -- Young, Bush, Leinart, Cutler/Ferguson, the last of which is being evaluated closely this week. It's not out of this world to take Ferguson, but a)Roos is a deal and a half at tackle, IMO. Depends on if they think Ferguson will cause Roos to be wasted on the right, or if those two will be bookends for years to come; b)Bush, like I said yesterday, I think, will be the dilithium crystal to Chow's Starship "Enterprise" - I think our O will transform into everything Chow's offense portended for it to be, and c)we have the undreamt of chance to get one of three possible franchise QBs, which in all likelihood we won't have next year. You have to consider just the raw odds of getting one in the door at the right time.

    Second-hand but I have no doubt Palmer's arm is better. Again, does that make Palmer the better QB overall? Time will tell.

    The bulk of stuff I read on Chow's opinion on Leinart was right after he accepted the job here. Everything, as expected, was glowing. He talked about his leadership and ability to make the reads so well.

    Did you read the stuff he said about Cutler yesterday in Mortensen's article? Mort also said he expected cutler to be the first qb taken. It was pretty extreme. I was just glad that Chow's getting some good time in with him, so if he is that good, we know it and can pick him up...
