    Someone should really make an official "Who is your desired QB next year poll?" so it's a little more organized around here. I would but have no idea how to do it.
    I know I'm the new guy in town and should just keep my mouth closed but I'm just saying..

    Maybe if Green Jets and Ham had done that, things turn out differently, and then who knows how things might've turned out in everybody's life, as a result of GJ and H still being welcome here. Like a butterfly effect, almost?

    Yes, it's probably not going to happen. I already said that, if you can read you would've seen it already. I"m just asking a realistic hypothetical situation. Stranger things have happened in free agency.
    no, I think that stranger things have not happened
    A top 12 QB who just won a playoff game becomes a FA, without being tagged? never happened- Check
    A team that is 24 mill over the salary cap signs a 16 mill a year player- never happened- Check

    Now if you said would you trade 1st rd picks with the ravens in a "tag and trade" that makes it a little more likely.

    Your scenario is even more far stretched than trading Sanchez for Flynn.

    And why should a poster not say that the premise is absurd?.

    Flacco is an average NFL starting QB, but he would get paid 5/90, 40 Guaranteed by a handful of clubs on the open market

    FF knows as well as anyone this thread is lolfail. He's just trolling as usual.

    So please stop feeding the trolls by quoting them
    Thread is not a fail just because you think it is.

    Someone here mentioned Matt Flynn. I would take him in a heartbeat. Seattle would have to take on Sanchez's contract, and I don't think they would do that unless the Jets seriously sweetened the deal. But I would take Flynn. He's proven he can play in this league. Red flags are his small sample size and his inability to beat out a rookie (although Wilson has showed himself to be one hell of a rookie). But he's better than what we have now.

    I agree with this. Plus he benefits from being on a team that already has leaders.

    The game is still won and lost in the trenches. Team goal should be to get its cap in order, and re-build the OL, and D front 7 where we have some young pieces to work with. Do those two things, and the Jets will be a very attractive place for a QB. It is not that now, which means you have to overpay and wind up with mediocrity.

    See Boomer and NO'D

    No, you are not allowed to even have this discussion.

    The great and powerful One has spoken. He can't just ignore the thread. He must tell you that you are unworthy and don't deserve an opinion. This is his board.

    You're right. I'm just a dude with an opinion.

    The thread is fail because, as has been pointed out, it's absolutely 100% unrealistic for a wide variety of reasons.

    I'm all for a new QB, obviously. But if we're going to discuss it, we should at least attempt to remain in the realm of reality.

    Flacco as a Jet in 2013 is fantasy, pure and simple.

    Funny you mention that, as I had thought about that myself. Personally I wouldn't make that trade until draft day to see who falls to #9, but I would certainly talk to the Seahawks and gauge their interest. They're already a good team, and maybe the idea of adding a top 10 rookie to an already young and loaded team might be too good to pass up. It's almost a certainty that Flynn will want to be traded after the season, and maybe Carroll thinks that with the right coaching Sanchez can be an effective back-up.

    this is exactly my scenario. draft day podium trade.

    I'm ok with trading down and getting more picks, although if a stud pass rushing OLB is sitting there at #9, that would be hard to pass up. But this teams has holes, and getting more picks will help fix that.

    A better OC, better QB and faster players on D can put this team back unto the playoffs.

    problem is draft picks dont always work out. the odds are much better if you draft a blue chip type player at #9 instead of a bunch rookies who might not even make the team.

    we need a qb here and flynn doesnt want to be a backup in seattle.

    yes I think they may do that. But that is not Sanchez for Flynn. Seattle or any other team may take a 13 mill one year cap hit (8.75 sanchez 4mil flynn) in order to move up 20 slots in the 1st. But there will have to be somebody really special at #9 to do so. You have to remember that for 13mill of cap room they could get Leverte or Vollmer and keeping ther #1 which will be a much better bet than the trade up.

    Maybe the owner will send Carroll for electroshock treatments after he asks the
    owner for 9 mill a year after asking him for 10 mill for a qb.

    Exactly. I'm also having trouble seeing Seattle, after seeing what happened to washington, in a real rush to dump a really decent #2 QB they already have locked up. Young, mobile QB's get hurt. Having Flynn behind him is the kind of safety net you hold onto till you can no longer afford it.

    So what, exactly, legitimizes your fantasy thread again?

    Like I said, you may as well have asked if the "Jets should persue a trade for Peyton Manning and Drew Brees to back him up" as silly as the OP is.



    Appreciate the advice, but I prefer to post, and point out how stupid I feel the OP idea is due to it's almost total lack of basis in reality.



    Oh, I read it, which only further serves to illustrate the stupidity of the idea. You know it's not going to happen, yet you felt you just had to ask anyway?

    If so, why not aim a little higher? I hear Peyton Manning and Drew Brees might be on the trading block.



    Sure it has. I'm sure the Ravens will happily allow the best QB in their recent history to walk to New York.

    Totally realistic, not Madden 2013'esque in any way.

    Really.

    I think you should start a "Should the Jets Persue a Trade for QB Cousins" next.
    What a douchebag.
