    I think we'll trade him for a 1st and a 5th on draft day. I'd be happy with that.

    Screw that! Why not just give away the team Ant! he is a top notch RB, a starter on most teams. You want to give them him and two picks for only two picks?! Your insane!

    Yeah and that one gaem wasn't due to injury. It was the last game of the '04 season against KC when we had already clinched the division and Marty wanted to sit LT so he'd be fresh in the playoffs. Brees and several othher of our starters took the day off and we still crushed the Chiefs. I think that might have been the last game Flutie started in his career.

    1. I did add the 'lol' to it
    2. If you want me to treat it seriously, we get four picks (1 first, 3 thirds) and that first will very likely net us Calvin Johnson. The Browns get three picks, get to trade down and get a RB who they hand the ball to often and early and we get Turner to a team that won't harm us.
    3. I still think it borders on impossible that some team will pay up a first and a third and I am, in case ya didn't know, firmly in the camp of trading turner to get SOMETHING for him NOW when we still can. Backup RBs are easier to get then freak athletic WRs

    1. Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech
    3a. (Cle) Quentin Moses OLB/DE Georgia
    3b. (SD) John Wendling S Wyoming
    3c. (Comp) Kareem Brown NT Miami

    I don't see AJ caving on this one. A 1st and a 3rd, period.

    I for one don't mind having MT around for our Super Bowl run this season. We can always use him.

    Your still giving away two picks needlessly. You are saying that you want to give MT away. We give a fist and a second, and MT for a first and a third. That makes no sense, especially when we are asking for a first and a third for MT alone. Have you been taking trade lessons from bethard?

    It is when that first rounder is the third overall pick which is worth a little more then our 30th overall pick. Our second would be used to make up hte difference. More or less this is a deal where turner would be the main chip to get up to grab Calvin Johnson.

    Marshawn lynch is reported to have something wrong with his back. Which I'm guessing is the main competition to turner for teams wanting a good starting running back. It was reported on the nfl channel yesterday.

    Its either a ploy to have lynch fall in the draft. Or lynch does have something wrong with him.

    so instead of us getting an extra 1st and 3rd as we should get. You will give Turner, a fist and a second away for a first and a third.

    Is your last name Bethard? Dont you get it, Turner is worth a first and a third alone, screw giving our picks away for the honor to let him go... The is crazy.

    Turner is the second best back in the leauge. Norv and AJ stated they want to run the ball more. Screw the WR. Sign Turner long term, because he is that good. Run it 60 times per game out of the wishbone, with the occasional TD throw to VJ, MF, or Spidey.:tup:

    Our running game cannot be stopped. We have heard it how many times this past year from opposing coaches?:tup:

    Concentrate on Tackles, DB's, and Safeties in the draft. Draft more Beef!:tup:

    That is joke and I am glad you are not wearing the GM hat.

    Remember Turner = 1st&3rd. That is the price.

    I might consider.

    Clev: Turner and our 30th pick
    SD: Gets Clev's 1st and 3rd.

    I might do that.

    No way thats gonna happen with Adrian Peterson staring them in the face. Its gonna cost us a lot more to move all the way to 3rd, like a first next year and maybe a 3rd.

    Sure there are plenty of posters that have unrealistic expectations for what we might get for him. But you don't think Turner is worth the $2 point whatever mil for which AJ has aquired his services? That seems reasonable to me. I mean was there another backup RB in the NFL (with more than say 50 carries) that racked up 6+ YPC? I think a quality backup RB, especially one who's style contrasts sharply with the starter, is a major, though under appreciated, commodity in the NFL. Are some of us expecting too much out of a potential trade for him? No doubt about it...

    But I do not think AJ overpayed. :no:

    Pinnock, Gross & Perkins plus the draft = plenty of backup for LT

    Sproles sucks nuts. If we draft a good return man, he will be cut.

    If they want Turner, then they are going to have to pay.

    Turner has a price on his head of a 1st & 3rd. That is what you need to bring if you want to go shopping. That is overpriced, but GMs are still calling.

    If AJ really wanted to trade or move Tuner it would have been just the 1st.

    The exact same tag was placed on schaub by the falcons.

    They wanted a first and third for him.

    They ended up with going from 10 to 8th overall in this years draft and the 39th pick overall and a second rounder in 2008.

    If AJ wants to move him he can. The first and third is the asking price, not the selling price.
