Honestly if they did make the huge mistake and actually trade him what would you be satified with?
2 first round picks and 2 second round picks?
Hell Ricky Williams got traded to Miami for all of their picks in 1999 and a first and a third in 2000.
I'd want a helluva lot more than Colbert would get us, put it that way. It'd have to be a fucking haul.
Even with the shit he's been through, I'd want a 2010 R1, a 2011 R1, and a bunch of mid-round picks from the next couple of years. And even then I'd probably wait a year to draft a QB, so I'd be looking at FAs vs. Dixon this year, and revamping the lines and secondary.
I dunno, don't see any QBs this year (uck) or next on par with BBR. I like Clausen more than most here, but he's about the only one close to being worth a draft pick; but the equivalent of Ben? NFW. Some folks are excited about Locker and Ponder next year, but I think I'd look very closely at Jerrod Johnson, very talented, super high character guy.
Hope it doesn't come to pass, though. I'd rather win a couple more Lombardis with Ben.
