    This is a completely crazy notion that will never happen, but it is something for discussion this time of year.

    We trade Carr to Oakland in exchange for switching draft positions in rounds 1-3 and a sixth rounder. In other words, we move from 8-10 to the 1st pick in rounds 1-3, plus pick up an extra 6th rounder.

    Al Davis is just crazy enought to do it, especially with a Fresno State boy.

    Carr's value is no more than a mid round pick. Why even bring up something so ridiculous?

    Not to mention the money for a #1 pick

    Because you have no idea what Carr's "value" is. He may well be worth a #1 to a team that needs one in a year that is weak on QBs in the draft.

    If McNair is worth a 3rd, Carr is worth a 5-6

    I still think Carr is not the main problem, he does have a plus side, I just have not figured it out yet ! I say let's try and lure a certain QB from the Irish and see what we get !

    If Harrington was worth anything, Carr would bring in a 4th.

    ...but it won't happen. He's staying.

    Quinn is not as good as Carr was.

    And maybe it might seem like a dumb idea, keep Carr on the team, until Colt McCoy is ready to make it to the NFL. I like what I have seen from this kid so far.

    Good luck trying to convince anyone that Carr is still worth a 1st round pick. :ok:

    I like our draft position.. should be good talent there.

    All of my crazy offseason ideas involve getting Freeney from the Colts.

    Why don't we just try to lure Mack Brown down here while we are at it?

    How about Carr is not even worth a draft pick... The reality of the situation is that another team takes him off your hands and gives him a chance with the exception you agree to pay some of his salary. Any team that would give up a middle round pick would have to be crazy.

    So we trade Carr, take his cap hit, and then pay a #1 overall pick? Where is the money coming from?
