    Since T Banks wants a chance at a starting job - lets trade him to tha Bears since Grossman went down w/ a broken left ankle. Or maybe Ragone and draft a QB next year in the third round. Just :fishing:

    i was thinking the same thing. But i would rather trade ragone than banks. Banks is a solid #2. What do you think we could get for Ragone?

    Most i think we can get for Ragone is a 2nd rounder. Since he did decent in the Europe League, his stock is really high right now ( I feel). I dont think they would be interest in Banks though. They already have a ex-cowboy in Hutchson. They dont need another.

    McClain would say all they need to do is sign C Benson and the QB won't matter that much......

    I think the Bears have something in the works to acquire Tommy Maddox.

    They are probably thinking they got a steal the way Orton produced the other night. Granted it was against 3rd and 4th stringers but he looked pretty good. I have a feeling the Ragone pick will pay its dividend in the form of a clipboard holder on the sideline. Banks probably will be gone within a year anyway it would be nice to get something in return.

    Probably a case of Dr. Pepper, a pack of Lucky Strikes, and a year's subscription to Mad Magazine.

    I would trade Banks before Ragone.I still remember
    watching him start for Dallas,not pretty.
    But in reality we can't afford to trade either one
    of them.Too many injuries can happen at the
    QB position.Remember the year the Raiders went
    through their three starters and had to put
    Jeff George in even though he wasn't 100%.
    They actually used a wide reciever at QB 1st!!!

    Ragone wasn't great but I think you're confusing him with Symons. That was just horrible in more ways than I want to imagine.

    McClain did say in the pregame that Grossman's injury guaranteed the Bears last place in the NFC North and that they will now try to sign Benson quickly to get some positive publicity in an attempt to deflect criticism away from their inability to bring in a quality #2 QB.

    Before Grossman's injury McClain was saying that either the Lions or Bears had a good shot at the playoffs, depending on who had a better year between Harrington and Grossman.

    Positive publicity won't do them a lot of good when they go 4-12 (or worse)

    The only way Ragone should win out over Banks is if Carr would unfortunately be out for the season, is to get a #1 draft pick.

    As for trading a QB, it isn't worth the risk to trade either Ragone or Banks. QB injuries happen so frequently that teams planning on making the playoffs really need 3 QB's. At least one of the backups needs to be able to step in for an extended period, but a third-string QB should at least be able to start a game or two without going through a complete meltdown. Right now Symons is not capable of doing that.

    I doubt that it would be wise to trade Banks or Ragone especially with the state of the offensive line. I would carry three QB's just in case, the 4th however (BJ Symons) I'm sorry to say looked terrible and should be cut :ninja:

    One thing you guys need to remember about Symons is this is the first time (apart from a brief NFL Europe appearance) that he has touched a football in an NFL game. If the Galaxy hadn't been wasting their time with Akili Smith all season he might have gotten more minutes. I want to see Symons play a bit more before I make a judgement call, I think Ragone could turn into a decent backup if he gets some reps.

    After watching last nights game, they have lowered their trade offer to two Yoohoo's, and a Slurpee. Mad Magazine is off the table.
