It is funny how a lot of people want to trade for other teams young QBs (Cousins, Foles) who were drafted in the 3rd and 4th rounds last year, when the Jets could just draft their own guy and not over pay another team. No one around here was clamoring for either guy (Foles, Cousins) before the draft last year, yet now they are the answer to be the franchise QB. There are prospects available this year who are being viewed exactly like Foles and Cousins were last year.
Foles has a body of work and he impressed, even more, Foles impressed in the offense and under the offensive coordinator that is now the Jets OC, there is NO comparison to any QB in the draft this year because no QB has played at the NFL level yet, so your point doesn't make sense.
Cousins has a lesser body of work and the same point can't be made over Foles.
I could also make the argument that Sanchez has a small body of work where he has impressed, and he's already on the team, so why not stick with that player, given his draft status coming out, and the work he has put in, and given his cap hit to the team for this coming season? Obviously, the inconsistency and his poor play through his 4 years so far blemishes all of that, but it's equally as funny to compare Sanchez to any QB coming out, and to suggest, dump Sanchez for the drafted QB or a FA.
I'd be very much for a Foles trade, but for a price that doesn't impact the Jets draft plans, a 3rd rounder, or I too like the idea of using Cro in a trade.
