Yeah I might be buying it if it weren't of that...who the hell would give up a #33 for old man Smith...certainly not a stupid move the Pat and Bill would make.

Eh... it's hard to say, Schaub didn't get to play it out. Either way, none of them were able to put the team on their backs & carry them past 8 wins. Goofy way to judge QB play, I know... but everyone else does it.

I do admit that there are things to like about Mallett. But for me, the negatives always outweighed the positives. The biggest negative being that he was a consistent failure in the 4th quarter of games, which I documented in a post a couple of months ago when this idea first came up.

I also said at that time that it would take at least our #33 to get him, when many were thinking he could be had for our #65. NE has all the leverage in a deal like this, which I don't like. If O'Brien signs off on this then obviously I'm on board, but IMO Mallett is not a long term answer. And a trade like this would require a long term commitment, much like the Schaub trade did.

Mallett would be the best QB on this roster next year if we make no other changes, but he would just be the best of a bad group. Again, in my opinion. I see a potential franchise QB (yes, Bridgewater) at #1 who would be better in year 1 and better moving forward. That's what I'd do.
I disagree. The Patriots have no leverage unless another team is bidding him up. They lose Mallet for nothing next year. I understand them trying to act like they have the leverage, but it's all bluff.

Honestly not trying to troll. I was listening and I did a double take. Looked up on ESPN/NFL.com and didn't see anything. They then started talking about Brotles stock and how it relates to the Mallett supposed acquisition

Okay then, where do you live where you heard this? You just gotta know that you gotta back up bold stuff if you're gonna post it in a forum full of die-hards, lol.

Who needs a guy like Mallett more? The team with Tom Brady or the team with Matt Schaub and Case Keenum?

We have more to gain from acquiring him than they stand to lose from letting him walk, which they know. Plus they likely get a comp pick if he leaves as a FA next year, because on the open market he will get a pretty decent deal, whether he deserves it or not. So yes, they have the leverage. And any trade would likely cost us at least our #33.
