[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What can we do at Running Back? : We trade him because if Brady keeps his mind in the game he goes 5 more years. You will put the best QB out there to win the game and that is Brady even at 40 over Mallet. We have a backup we trust in Hoyer. Mallet could walk after his rookie contract so if Brady does not get hurt we will almost have to trade his at some point. Mallets value now would be equal to what it would be 2 years from now. Brady may get hurt but it is a percentage game, the percent that Mallet may save us vs the percent that trading him now will help us. Mallet takes up a roster spot and if we want a sucessor to Brady and Mallet is just a couple years to early for that Aron Rodgers window, we move on and find another guy next year to develop. Last, Mallet may be good but we are starting to act like our 3rd string QB is the next franchise savior ala Brady himself. He may be good but a good chance not that good. A replaceable commodity. Didn't we all talk when we got him he might be a good chip to cash in a year or two down the road?

You cannot bank on Brady going 5 more years. He has 2 years left on his deal and you see where you are then. There's a reason he only signed a 4 year deal and BB took Mallett in the 3rd rd last year.
I know Brady said he wants to play until 40. That's great. I hope he does and he isn't throwing 40+ times in a game then. But, sometimes your body and skills fail you and wants and desires to play until 40 aren't reality.
Look at Gomer Manning. He's so delusional right now that he seriously thought he still had a chance with Indy committing to him long term, just 2 weeks ago per Mortensen.
I do not want Brady turning inot that situation, so let's just wait and see. But, unloading a development chip behind Brady with that kind of upside? No way. They'll make the decision on him within the next 2 years, but don't be surprised to see BB unload Brady if it makes sense for both sides. Anything can happen, but why pigeon hole yourself?
It's flat out moronic that the Irsays didn't activate Gomer's deal with a supposed "clean bill of health" and trade him. If Indy was smart they play it off like they will resign Gomer, will trade out of the 1st slot to rebuild that way, but they basically broadcasted their desires so early, they completely blew it. It's hialrious.
They could have played it off that they were keeping Manning only to trade him to a Denver, who is clearly hot to trot in desperation mode.
BB would never be so dumb to do that. The Jets made a similar mistake with the Sanchez (should have pretended to move on with Sanchez, but quietly trade him to clear space, sign Flynn or Orton and have them compete with McElroy) thing and now Elway with an old Gomer expected to beat Crennel twice a year in the same division, outdoors. lol
