Would you give Sage for Chester Taylor strait up?
Prepare for everyone to tell you this has already been talked about.
Already discussed and locked.
......OK, sorry guys................lock it up.
no i wouldn't lets just draft a running back and be done with it.
I'd do that deal all day long and twice on Sunday!!!
Yeah but then who would play QB? We need someone other than Craig Nall as our starter. I really dont want to get Harrington or You know who.
Honestly I think we should really talk up the RB position for the draft. There are teams like the and Seahawks that are going to want a RB in the draft. The more we talk up the RB situation and a guy slides to us, we should be getting some entertaining offers.
This may be the reason we will not sign a RB FA. Sure we will bring some in to show we are looking for a RB, but we won't sign anybody so that way the draft will look like RB for Houston all day long. Then someone will want a guy at our position and we can get a good trade going, perhaps trading down and getting a CB or LT at a better value.
Gil Brandt talked about trading Sage for Chester on Sirius NFL Radio. He thinks it's gonna happen during the draft.
FYI--Chester is signed for two more seasons at $3 mil per season. The Vikes would eat any bonus money paid to date in a trade.
My brother lives in Brownsville. From what I understand yall may be the only two Texan fans there.
I wouldn't mind the trade for Chester Taylor. I think it would help us win now and take care of a need position so we can focus on CB and LT.
Yep, there are very few of us. Cowboy land, Lots of ignorant Cowboy fans.
My brother hates that because Bville is closer to Houston than Dallas. Oh well.
Straight from the Deparment of redundancy department!
Id do this in a heart beat. Would let us fix other positions and have a staarting calibur RB.
Are you kidding. Not for Sage. Yeah Peterson is young and a perennial all pro and a back that can change games....but Sage has something you can't put your finger on for a backup QB. We have to keep him
I would be so pissed off if that trade actually happened. Sage has proven to be no worse a starter than Schaub to this point. I don't mind trading him, especially to a team like the Vikings, but if we get an over the hill, average at best RB who has seen his better days...ala Green...I will boycott the FO and their decision and evaluation of any and all RB's. This would be one of the absolute worst trades I could think up. I would rather get only a 4th round draft pick and Taylor. However, I think Sage is worth a 2nd rounder and some team will pay that asking price.
Peterson has had injury issues as per his history so I think it would be short sighted for the Vikings to trade Taylor. It's pretty much the same argument as to not trading Schaub here.
I wouldn't exactly group Taylor as some over the hill back. He has been in the league 5 years..drafted in 2002 and 2 years ago had 1216 yards, averaging 4 yds a carry. This past year, as not even the main back he still had 844 yards, 7 TDs and averaged 5.4 a carry. Not too shabby.
