We are not going to "win" the Revis trade. Player for player, pound for pound, we are not going to get equal value. That is almost impossible.
The trade should be judged by whether or not the players we draft with those picks help improve the team as a whole. Right now we are not a playoff team and have an awful offense. If the team gets younger, cheaper and better as a whole and we become a contender again then the trade will be worth it.
You have to look at the team as a whole. If the team improves then the deal was good.
Excellent points. If we keep Revis, does the team improve? No, we probably don't win another 5 games to make the playoffs.
If we obtain an OL, RB, QB, OLB, maybe 2 or 3 starters out of those positions, will the team improve? Yes, maybe 2-3 games more (W's).
We're rebuilding. We're not winning anything anytime soon.
