    I personally hate the idea....but at least it is something to talk about.

    That article sounds eerily like John McClain... trying to pimp a trade idea to the local team..

    I think I would actually vomit if the Texans give up #8 and a player for Plummer, Bell and an early round pick,

    So we would get:

    Jake Plummer
    Tatum Bell
    an early round draft pick
    - Plummer and Bell have actually produced

    We would give:
    Our 1st rounder
    Another player (I nominate David Carr)

    Doesn't sound like a bad deal to me at all. JMHO.

    Yeah it is probably the worst offseason idea I've heard yet. There is no way Kubiak and Smith would mull this over....but there just hasn't been much to discuss the past few days so I figure why not?

    MichaelM, your avatar is great.

    Not sure I'd like this scenario. Denver is trying to get playmakers also, so they would jettison Plummer and Bell to us to pick one at #8. Doesn't sound like a long-term move, but rather one of desparation...doubt Rick will pull that trigger.

    okay.

    So Pops Shanahan doesn't like Plummer throwing the ball away and Bell fumbling. And then the "Texan Brass" likes them both.

    real good planning.

    If Jake Plummer wasn't going to get cut and he was still their starter I guess I could understand it. But basically....because if we wait long enough Plummer will get cut (which I'm not saying we should do, I'd like to give up something small for him to get him here before the final day before camp....like the Ravens did with McNair....maybe give up a 5th) we are giving up the 8th pick and a player (it isn't like we have an abundance of players that teams would want that wouldn't significantly hurt us if we lost) for Tatum Bell and a 2nd or 3rd round pick......thats horrible.

    Not a whole lot to consider here.

    Here's the key phrase of the article...

    Reaching.

    Oh damn, your right....well now you've solved it for everyone I guess we should just lock the thread and start talking about drafting AP at 8 or whether a guy we don't even have yet would be a good QB here.

    Like I said....didn't say it was all that plausible....but it is worth discussing...anything other than the 50 threads over the same subjects.

    Solved what? Was this thread supposed to be a riddle?

    The article itself is even titled "Tatum Bell in Houston? Trade possible"

    Notice the question mark.

    Bad deal for the Texans and I don't expect them to do it.

    Well since you've twice posted phrases alluding to the idea that it isn't very solid....(even though thats obvious) and helped make up everyone's mind that it isn't worth discussing....well I guess you have solved it for us. Not worth discussing on a discussion board....please continue with the Carr vs. Plummer threads.

    But i guess this is understandable since you've got a fondness for playing Daddy apparently....
     
  19. It's a good deal in that if the Media blitz to kill Carr's career in Houston is successful, then having a veteran QB in Plummer to take his place makes more sense than Sage Rosefels as our QB in 2007. Add to that that we get a pretty good runner in Bell. What is the downside to that? Well it depends on who we were going to pick at the #8 slot in the draft. Does that player have more talent than Plummer (on the downside of his career) or Bell (starting his career)?
