They are in need of a QB.

Maybe Browner + Flynn + late round pick?

I would feel like Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy if that happened!

Its not going to happen. I'd be shocked if Pete and John pull the trigger.
1)He's expensive.
2) He's a me type guy and
3) He's coming of major knee injury
4) Our FO has a pride in finding guys for themselves.


Look Revis is an amazing CB when healthy. But this trade would have to be worked out to benefit Seattle. We are in great shape in the secondary so this is 100% luxury move. Personally I would give a 3rd this year. If Revis is a team player and healthy they get a 2nd next year.

PS they won't want Flynn. They are trying to save money. Sanchez is looking at 12 million (100% guarenteed) They will probably stick with him this year. They don't want to add another 7 million at QB.

No.
Nope.
Noway.
Nohow.


I would be 100% against this trade, here's why:

1) The trade would cost too much.
2) After the trade Revis will want big $.
3) Revis is going to be 28 years old at the start of next year and coming off of an ACL tear.
4) We have two very good Corners in Sherm and Browner to start with.
5) as stated earlier in this thread, we need pass rushers on this team our CBs are solid......

Logical, and most would agree. However there is logic out there (Marcus Buckingham- discover your strengths) things focusing on making your strengths, stronger is what leads to dominance.

I do agree with this philosophy, which led the Falcons to get Julio Jones, and the Peyton led Colts to always be stacked at every receiving position. Actually, thats what I think is wrong with the Patriots. Brady has one receiving option, and they are getting rid of him! The best QB of this generation and you don't even know who his receivers are. WTF is that all about??

Anyways, I say defense should still be this teams strength, but run defense (not pass rush) is absolutely killing them.

I'm against this trade, but if it went down, I wouldn't even be mad. Why would any team not want the 2 best corners in the league? that helps your pass rush SO much.

I'm against this trade as well. Revis has proven himself to be a selfish, me-first player as well as a off-the-field distraction with his seemingly yearly threat of holding out. I'm all for players getting what they can out of the contract negotiation process, but this dude acts like a diva every off season. The 'Hawks don't need that kind of distraction. Save the picks cuz the FO has already proven they can find gems at any time in the draft and save the cap space to sign other quality players that hopefully won't act like honey boo boo after every season.

SwiftTexan pretty much covered everything I was going to say. No thanks to Revis.

There's a rumour going around that Cromartie may be more likely to be dealt. This actually makes more sense (for us anyway). He's a big tall receiver with great hands and he wouldn't cost as much to acquire. He's also signed for the next two years. The only drawback is that he has a hefty contract for the next two years but maybe we could convince him to re-structure to a longer term in the hopes of making a deep playoff run.

I don't think we need to acquire either of these big names floating around the trade block but I'm sure John & co are doing their due dilligence and seeing what the price tag is.

I see no purpose to Cro.

He's purely an outside CB, just like Browner and Sherman. The bonus to Revis is that he can cover elite slot guys.

I figured in a 3-wide set that Sherm could cover the inside and/or either Browner or Cro could cover guys like Graham/Gronk on passing downs.

Sherm is great theres no doubt. You dont want him inside.

I Agree with "NO!" to Revis for all the reasons elucidated above. Focus on what we need- OL, Pass rush, WR, depth. If you're gonna go for a big name FA, go get a guard. There won't be any super-studs available to us in the draft.

This is where i am, but i agree in not wanting to deal with holdouts.

Revis wants star QB money and what we would have to give up would not be worth it, Our D-Line needs the upgrade our Secondary is fine except at NCB.

Sherm is great theres no doubt. You dont want him inside.
charles Woodson was amazing and he was a sick nickel in some sets. You don't want Sherm inside because he'd be much worse at it, plain and simple. His height and his ability o use the sideline as a defender are two of his best traits that he can't maximize inside.
