    Careful. There i a bounty of comments made by Crave that have to be conidered for that award.

    The Raider could handle Flynn's salary if they cut Palmer. O that isn't exactly an isue (and didn't require extensive reearch on my part either).

    The thing about trading for Flynn is a team would be stupid to give anything higher than a 3rd for him (I'd offer a 4th) and his 5 mil base salary right now. What is perplexing about this whole concpet is we signed a vet in Fitz that is probably just as good or better than Flynn so if the Raiders wanted a guy to replace Palmer for cheap and hold the fort they could have done so.

    My guess is the Raiders, possibly the dumbest team in the NFL right now, are going to think Geno Smith i the 2nd coming of ..... not sure who.... but will draft him anyway.

    I'm going to start another thread now on "what if the teams in front of us trade for a DT (I'll pluck a name off some team)" and if that will change who drops to us in the draft. Then I'm going to start another on DEs.

    Haven't heard anything about that. But, if true... ARZ better be calling.

    The talk is pretty quiet, Rivers is still a top QB but if SD is rebuilding then they'd be wise to move him, they could really make out nice. Theyre probably a few years away from being a dominate team again so thats why the talk is there but not really making headlines.

    It's more of a thought that some reporter once touched on.

    I can't see them trading Rivers. I guess he is 31, probably has 3-4 years left. He's been worse these last two years, but also hasn't had a whole lot of help. Gates is getting older, lost V-JAX, Floyds been injured, OL is trash. McCoy may want to go out and get his own QB. They could get some legit compensation out of him, just look at the Palmer and Kolb trades of recent. SD would get atleast 2 #1s.

    I seriously doubt they'll trade him though.

    Not sure what SD gains by moving a 31 year old QB who is pretty darn good. They might not have a guy that good for another decade. If they want to consider moving on without Rivers they need to draft a few and hope one turns out to be a steal or something.

    I think Geno is going to be an outstanding QB.
