    Trading out of a Top 3 Pick

    The Giants fatal flaw was ignoring their dire need at QB because they believed Eli Manning still had at least 2 good years left in him when, in fact, he was washed up 3 seasons ago. The numbers show it. At the time Barkley was drafted the Giants had gone almost 30 games without scoring 30 points. As far as trading out of a top 3 pick? Strictly a case-by-case decision. Depends how your roster is built and where the talent is in that particular draft.

    Tom Brady

    He didn't get the full-season suspension he should have gotten for fixing an AFC Championship Game -- so I doubt much will come out of him being the scumbag he is 365 days per year

    Maybe Howie should have grabbed Kareem Hunt

    This thread is really only valid if the OP was singing Hunt's praises and touting him BEFORE the draft. Personally there were several other RB I liked better than Hunt, so I'm not going to lament that the Eagles didn't draft him. Where he was drafted I doubt the Eagles had any shot at him anyway. Most prognosticators had him as a 4th round guy. Credit Andy Reid for seeing his fit in the KC offense. P.S. -- it's only one game -- and if Spencer Ware doesn't get injured, Kareem Hunt probably doesn't see very many snaps

    OFFICIAL: Nick Foles 2017 option not picked up by Chiefs

    Personally I think Foles is an ideal #2 guy. He's not good enough to push a good starting QB or create a QB controversy, but if your starter went down with injury and you had to put him in for 4-6 games your season isn't in the sewer either. He'll be a #2 somewhere next season.
