    I might give up our 2nd for Schaub if the FO was confident he could be our guy. That would allow us to pick whoever we wanted at #3.

    And as for the idea itself, I really dont think it would be that bad a thought if we were drafting the second half of the first round. But I dont Schaub has done enough to warrant giving up the third pick in the draft.

    If you don't believe in taking a QB in the 1st round, that's fine.

    The other stuff is crazy talk.

    Look, if we're picking a QB #3, why is it such a horrible idea to trade that pick for a QB (with NFL experience, and who is as highly regarded as any of the big 3) and an extra 1st day pick? I know this wouldn't be as sexy as dressing Leinart or Young in two-toned blue, but it would help the team more. Many teams have made costly mistakes by taking a rookie QB in the top spot, i.e. Seattle-Mieir, Washington-Schuler, SD-Leaf.
    I don't want to have to listen to ESPN five years from now talking about the Titans 1st round bust.

    Nigel, I agree with you, this thread especially has crossed some lines today.

    Is it really less risky? We don't know much about Schaub, he's certainly not a proven QB. As said above, it would make more sense if we had a lower pick, but the #3 has much higher value. The falcons are holding him at too high a price, we're not biting since we don't know he can do the job.
  7. Schaub was a late 3rd round pick 3 years ago who has played very little and has publicly shown no reason to believe that he's anything close to a potential top QB. Compare that to the 3 top QBs this year, all of whom are considered realistic franchise-type players.

    Would that be any worse that listening to them 5 years from now as they talk about the Titans making the worst trade in league history?

    This would be the worst move in NFL history. It would be like a team giving up a 1st rnd pic for Tony Beckham.

    Nah, the saints own that one. An entire draft (and they year afters 1st round) for Ricky Williams..

    I'd rather the Titans take a chance on the "big 3" than take him.

    You say the Jets value him but not really. They have Chad Pennington who had a below average arm coming off 2 shoulder injuries. They then had a disgruntled DE. They wanted Schaub in there as part of the deal not _THE_ deal, difference. Falcons also see the value with Schaub. He's cheap, he so far doesn't want to be #1 and he's a quality back up. With M.Vick back there you need a guy who can at least give you an 8-8 season (like one isn't enoguh, hehe) and Schaub does that.
