    Why trade for a qb? It's obvious CJ and VY have chemistry (no homo) when they're on the field together. I mean at least it really seemed like it when Vince's passing game was getting better and with those option kind of runs we used to use. I just wish we could get a coach in here that would make better use of those two in particular while we seem to have some pretty good wide receivers playing for the team.

    What am I saying that'll never happen

    Actually he's still under contract, he won't magically be a FA. He may want out if he's not paid big time but ultimately we own him.

    It's a shame that we were in such a great position heading into the bye week, grabbed up Randy Moss, and now we're in the worst shape we've been in. And I don't mean record-wise because we're still in contention for the division. I mean big picture, things look dimmer and dimmer.

    How do you guys feel about the Bears Tommie Harris? He's very similar to Jason Babin, in that he's just not getting the numbers, but is around the ball a lot. We didn't think Babin would revive his career, but Washburn has gotten the best from him while a Titan. Harris is also a lot like Jason Jones, and we all love Jones. Tommie Harris' contract ends in 2 years, but this is about the time his agent might begin pushing for a new deal following this year. No way Chicago will renew his deal when he's played in 10 games and only totaled 9 or so tackles. I know those numbers don't warrant trading for him, but he's really good at times. he could be had for a 4th or 5th, maybe even less.

    Great idea tbh!

    He's a perfect DT for our system.

    I don't know what it would take to revive his career though. From what I've heard, motivation isn't his issue.

    Sorry, my understanding is that they had to rework the contract to advance the monies to him this year effectively making it a new one year deal just so he wouldn't hold out. Thus, after this season there is no bonuses, no incentives left and he is stuck with base pay for the rest of his contract?

    They may own him on paper, but in reality, doesn't CJ have the Titans by groin in this situation?

    What is wrong with Babin's numbers he has 9 sacks.

    Not sure how you compare one of the highest paid DTs to a journeyman DE.

    Would Harris be good in our scheme? Yes but with Fisher gone maybe the scheme changes.

    Oh yeah, no doubt. I just meant that while he does have the leverage, Bud is the one who will decide if he wants to show CJ the money.

    If trading Cj is up for debate. New England has two first round picks this year.
    Might be a good position for a new head coach to rebuild this franchise, with three first round picks.

    New England I'm sure would love CJ.

    I think they are pretty high on Benjarvus Green-Ellis.
