Should Patriots Trade Tom Brady?

Posted on: December 28, 2008 2:19 pm
 

Crazy and stupid, right? But I heard a suggestion on sports radio station WIP in Philadelphia that actually got me thinking. Here's what could happen in a trade scenario that would help three teams:

1. The Philadelphia Eagles trade for Brady.

2. They give up two number one draft picks.

3. The Patriots go with Matt Cassel and have two draft picks. And you know how good the Patriots are with draft picks.

4. The Eagles cut Donovan McNabb.

5. Then McNabb ends up in Chicago.

Is this asinine? Is it plausible? Am I crazy like Prisco?

Cassel isn't Brady but he looks pretty damn good.

I wouldn't make that trade if I was New England. I'd trade Cassel but that scenario makes me pause for a moment.
For a moment.

Might be good idea to draft away Brady. And I agree Patriots are real good with draft picks especially first round ones. And I think Cassel could not be half as good as Brady is.Cool

I must have missed something...did he get them to the playoffs?  How any Super Bowls did they win together?  I saw his 400 yard games and I stand by my statement...he did nothing.  The Pats are a GREAT team with or without Brady.  QB's and how well they do are often dependent upon their WR's.  What do Young and Montana have in common?  Any QB throwing to Welker and Moss (along with every other eligible WR and their O-line) will put up some numbers...but its not reason to trade one of the best QB's in NFL history (big Yankee fan too god bless him).

Being from Philly, I know it seems there is a lot of McNabb bashing going on.  I happen to be a McNabb fan, and found it very difficult finding an authentic McNabb jersey in stores.  This was expalined to me by one of the store associates that they do not hink he'll be in Philly next year.

I wanted to smack the guy.  Donovan has been tortured on every play year in and year out.  He has managed to still produce at ahigh level dispite the controversy.  Reid does agood job of protecting his players, and also does a good job of not signing dogs who are past their prime.

Brady has now become a dog.  He was taken out by forcing a throw on a horrid team when all he needed to do was take the sack.  He has now shown his age, and at the same time lost his knee.  I do notbelieve he will be back and win a championship again in New England, or anywhere for that matter.

No man should ever lose his position due to injury.  Bradys trade value may also be hurt because of the injury he sustained.  Brady is the heart of the franchise, thats like trading Peyton Manning off the Colts.  You just don't do things like that.

Hey Putt,

Very good points- not far off from what I was saying- but apparently "FANS" don"t want to hear to much truth.

You're like Jack Nicholson in "A FEW GOOD MEN", and you said it all without any namecalling!

Tom Brady is to the Pats what Payton is to the Colts .

Trade Matt let him get his rewards and let  the

Pats get some  good picks.
