    Tj Yates and Ben Tate to the Raiders for 3rd pick in first round
    *And get Geno Smith...

    They would be perfect for the Raiders since they kno the system.

    McFadden can't stay healthy. . And Palmer is old and Pryor is not getting it there

    Yates and Tate are cheap and have a few years on contract so there not losing much

    And if have to give up late round like 4th or 5th

    There's no way Tate and Yates gets you the 3rd overall pick in the 1st round, not even with a 4th round pick thrown in. Those upper 1st round picks are very expensive.

    You'd probably have to give them our first, Schaub, & Tate.

    Greg Knapp was fired and the Raiders aren't running the same "system".

    They would probably take Brandon Harris and Shiloh Keo, though. Try it on Madden first, just to make sure.

    Anyone who thinks Tate and Yates are worth a #3 overall pick is absolutely insane. Also, no way I'd want Geno Smith.

    Editing to add the fact that Tate only has one year left on his contract and is probably more or at least is as injury prone than McFadden is.

    What is really cool about this MB is I can read a thread topic and then either participate or not. Also, I can make a really stupid comment to attempt to embarrass another poster and show how much smarter I am. Or not.

    C'mon ... why settle for just the 3rd overall. If we are giving up Yates and Tate, we should insist on the 1983 Marcus Allen and 1976 Gene Upshaw too.

    The Texans would be foolish not to make this trade. I hope this happens and I hope Rick Smith is reading or has read this thread. It's a good deal for both sides. A proverbial "win win" situation for both parties. We get Geno Smith who will be the starter from mini-camp and they get two players who are destined to be New England Patriots players at some point. I don't see a single downside to this trade scenario. I really hope this happens..ideally by Monday morning before I even brush my teeth at 6:30 a.m. That way by breakfast I'm already in a great mood and ready to tackle the long day ahead. I'll have to think about getting a Geno Smith jersey and the right size. I think by mid day I should have the jersey size sorted out. Then during lunch I can trash talk my friends who are Colts fan on how Geno Smith is going to return a punt for 200 yards for the winning touchdown in both games! The thought of that will sustain me through the long afternoon. By evening I'm sure I'll have convinced myself that Geno Smith will intercept Russell Wilson's pass in the Super Bowl for the Texans win! Geno Smith will win the Super Bowl MVP and will be on the cover of Madden making him the most marketable athlete in Houston's long and illustrious sports history. In conclusion, I think this is a great trade and the Raiders would be foolish not to make it happen.

    then watch Yates turn into Kenny Stabler & Tate into Bo Jackson. Who's laughing now? Al Davis in Raider Heaven :whip:

    Honestly. Really? Wow.
