    Would you make or not make this trade if offered? Why? Who would we end up with if made?

    no...too much money to invest. Just be happy with Reggie.

    Yeah, I'd do it, but the question is would they make such an offer?

    I really don't think we could afford that financially. We'd have to sign 2 first rounders, plus a second, and 2 thirds. That will kill us for about the next 3 years

    throw in one of your thirds this year and pick up a 2nd from the jets in next year's draft.

    I don't know, I really want Bush now and I think we don't have many needs to fill.

    No. 2 firsts will be more than Reggie will cost. Doubtful we'd get two players that will = the impact RB will have. :twocents:

    I wouldn't really consider a "Godfather Offer" a 4 & a 29...

    The only kind of "Godfather Offer" will have to be more like what Ditka gave up for Ricky Williams (don't forget that Casserly pulled that one off). I just don't see that happening. Besides, all those picks would be kind of pricey...

    I see that more likely than us taking Mario at # 1 :twocents:

    Not even close. I would laugh in Mangini's ear if he proposed this. Get real. Call me when you have a real offer. :ok:

    I know. Maybe if they offered #4, #29, and their second rounder and that's still a big if.

    I thought the Jets got the 15th pick. I guess the Broncos have that pick, then.

    No, this is not even close on the draft pick value chart (#1 = 3000 pts, #4 + #29 = 1800 + 640 = 2440 pts.) The only way I'd consider this is for us to draft Bush, then if Mario falls to the Jets at #4 and they take him then we can send them Bush for Mario and #29, then I'd do it. Without guaranteeing we get Mario in return, I'd have to get the #1, #29, next year's 1st and 3rd.

    Add in the Jets next years 1st and you got a deal.
    #4, #29 and #1 in 07 - Ole!

    I agree. The Jets 2nd 1st rounder is kinda low. I would want at least another 2nd or 3rd rounder. Look at what the Chargers got for Manning. We shouldn't take less than that.

    Not enough, the Jets would have to include with the first rounders this years
    second or next years first. That would be a very potent package to offer the
    Texans. Would it be enough ?
    I dunno....is another potential hometown backlash about passing on VY a second time after moving down an obsticale to trading the #1 ?

    First of all WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS?

    They are getting probably a player who can give more impact at 4 than we are getting #1....mainly b/c our #1 will have to split carries/kr/catches with 3 other people.

    I still like bush but find us drafting him to be completely :confused:
