Helping the 49'ers to get rid of Alex Smith is 'carrying out the trash' for them. Not the picks -which are essentially high second round picks in reality.
Getting Alex Smith you are essentially cloning Mark Sanchez - so you duplicate your problem at QB. Instead of one lousy QB you have two, and no star defensive player anymore. What's the point? Then, adding a low first round unknown gamble for the first year. That is a downgrade. Alex Smith is Mark Sanchez with a really good cast around him.
I don't get what you mean? Yournot helping them get rid of Smith, they will cut him the 1st week they can and not pay the guy a dime this year. Schien is the idiot that proposed the trade, no me. Big deal if the jets cut him in march, they don't have to pay him a dime either. It is not like Sanchez where his money is guaranteed no matter what. Smith's money is only guaranteed if he is on the roster in april.
1st this is a rediculous trade. The 49ers can't afford him -period. And quit thinking that all you get is 2 late #1s
Think of the trade this way, the jets get 2 draft picks pf the quality of pick 30 in this years draft go on a top 100 list and pick two players later than 30, yes you have to wait one year, But say this year you pick Barret Jones and
DJ Fluker and fix the oline.
Revis (with 15 mill cap hit) vs Fluker, (1 mil) Barret Jones,(1mil) Delanie Walker (4 mill) Landry (5.5 mil) Matt Moore (3.5 mill) total 15 mil
You don't just fix 2 positions with the picks, you get to fix 3 more with the extra 13mil dollars
