QB > DL
You get a QB like that, and you can work the next few years at finding some great pass rushers. You might not find one quite as good as Watt, but you won't need one that has to be as great as Watt. The last 10 SB teams didn't have a DE as good as Watt. But the majority of the last 10 SB's did all have elite QB's playing on their offense. I wouldn't trade Manning or Brady for Watt, because they only have a few seasons left to play at this level, but Luck and RG3 have an entire career ahead of them. This is a no brainer. You put this same type of question on just about any other team forum, they'd all take the QB's over Watt. Love Watt to death, but QB is the more valuable and important position to have an elite player at.
You've changed the deal. We've talking trade with the Packers, not the Colts or the 'Skins.
And further more, I don't know how wise it would be to give a division opponent a weapon like Watt to go with Freeney and Mathis.
Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify. ...the players are always changing, the team can move to another city, you're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it.
