    I'd take a 4th and throw a party. You aren't going to get higher than that.

    I would wait and see what else comes up, then if nothing was to happen then I would take it.

    KFFL reports that the team would be willing to trade Carr for a second-to-sixth round pick, creating the strictest of parameters for a deal. Meanwhile, the St. Paul Pioneer Press is reporting that the Vikings and Texans have discussed the possibility of Carr coming to Minnesota for a fourth-rounder.

    This is an interesting piece to the article...2nd to 6th rd pick? If those are the parameters we're in trouble!

    I would take a 4th, but I wouldn't do it too soon. If they are really targeting Plummer, we don't want Denver to raise the stakes for him. (Of course, I hope they release Plummer then we sign him) If we get rid of Carr too early, then we're in a position of needing a veteran starter and may have to give up a draft choice.

    I agree, if we trade Carr too soon then we will have to give up what we got for him to Denver if that is the direction they want to go, which I think it is. Im still not sold on the idea of plummer but I guess only time will tell.

    I don't think there's any possibility that we get a 3rd for Carr. Joey Harrington was traded for a 6th rounder last year...Carr isn't much better.

    I originally thought a 3rd but I really believe that to be too rich for teams who will have the same questions about Carr that the Texans do. A 4th is very reasonable.

    I'm torn on trading or keeping Carr. I look at his physical gifts and see the perfect franchise QB. Then I watch games and see a guy that our team probably ruined by throwing him to the wolves.

    I wonder what he could do w/ AD at RB, a better OL and another year w/ Kubes. I worry that we'll trade him and he'll become a Plunkett or Gannon for someone else and we'll be stuck w/ an older vet who's no better.

    Being stationed in Germany I had to buy the games over the internet. Carr looked VERY shaky at times and it was clear Kubes minimized his role towards the end of the year. I was able to listen to one of Carr's post game reports and his word's after loss to Titans did not inspire or exude confidence or leadership.

    Yet despite these shortfalls, I don't see a better replacement in this draft or FA market for our situation. I wouldn't mind drafting a QB like Mich St Drew Stanton in 3rd, but if that occured I'd want at least a 3rd in return for Carr.
     
  16. Aside from your views on whether you like David Carr or not, this is just a thread on what you'd like to get in return IF it DID happen. Being that the case, I would think that anything better than a 3rd round would be great, but anything worse than a 3rd would not be a good deal for us.

    I have a feeling that what ever we get for Carr, Denver will bet asking the same thing for Plummer.
    I don't think they will get it, but if they keep Plummer on the roster long enough they might get one round lower.

    Agreed. I think he's shown more than Joey Harrington and most teams have to admire his athletic ability and his durability. For instance, GB decides that DC could replace Favre. They trade a #3 and sit David for a year and let him watch Brett. Although GB overachieved a bit this year, with another solid draft or two they could be play-off team if they have a solid QB.

    Raiders would also be an excellent candidate given Davis rep for taking retreads and making them SB QBs.

    GB wouldn't do it when they still have a guy backing up Favre..Rodgers..that hasn't even gotten a chance.

    Again, Carr has shown nothing but the ability to take a hit. Teams won't give up a 3rd unless they are desperate to make a move or have extra picks. He won't be an upgrade over most guys up there and will have to compete.

    In fact, I could see Davis trading for Carr and then drafting AD or Calvin Johnson w/ #1 pick. He could still trade Moss and use that pick for more horsepower also.
