    ^ I agree.

    I just don't think we are close enough to be trading away draft picks for current players.


    The only trade I HOPE we make is trading away Britt for something! 5th rounder anybody? 6th? New Chipolte Breakfast burrito from Sonic?

    I agree. And if the FO was planning to mortgage the future they would not have taken a project pick in the second round.

    Agree to disagree. I'm not just some CJ nutswinger, I have a different idea of what his worth is to the team. He's not producing like did in 09 but his line is nowhere near as strong as it was then either. But I will leave it at that. Has he been less effective as of late? No doubt. Is he a lost cause? Absolutely not.

    Are you talking combo or just the burrito? We need to keep it realistic.

    I'm not saying you're a CJ nutswinger. I'm not saying he's a lost cause either.

    We can sit here all day talking about what CJ could do... IF he had a better OL... IF we were more creative on offense. But the sad fact is our OL just isn't very good and we aren't even remotely creative on offense. So it's pointless to even talk about those what if scenarios. You don't get to set the value of a guy based on what he could do if everything went perfect for him.

    The reality is that no team in the league is going to give up a 1st round pick for CJ in his current form, much less two 1st round picks. Personally, barring a major restructure, I don't see CJ being a Titan in 2014 anyway. So I'd be more than happy to let him go for a decent pick or pick/player combo.

    You think the Panthers would go for it?
