The future isnt promised to anyone. The AFC is wide openn this year. I think a trade for a proven talented linebacker from a losing team could do wonders.
Put schaub on the market, see if anybody bites. Sacrifice some draft picks if you could talk a losing team into parting ways with a really talented player.
Nobody is going to trade for a QB in the middle of the season to help them win now. Especially given that he is injured... Even if the system were similar enough for him to understand, he would have no timing with receivers, etc... CRAZY idea that will never happen!... and why would a "losing team" give up draft picks for a limited athlete at QB on the back side of his career- in the midst of possibly significant injury issues?
