That's what kinda confuses me. I know he has the accuracy for west coast, but I can't see him doing well rolling out and scrambilng for yards ala Garcia/Young. I thought Rodgers would be a perfect fit for SanFran, even though I would hate to see the dolphins take a QB.Mcduffie81 said:Rivers better get mobile REAL fast if hes goin to SF.
no... that would give them still 2 1st rounders... its rivers and the 12th for the #1 overall...NJPHIN34 said:That would give the Chargers 3 first round picks!! Can they even afford to sign all those high priced rookies??
I completely agree with what you said. This is a great trade for both sides -- plus they won't meet each other much being in different conferences. Rivers is great for SF, better than Smith or Rodgers considering he has already walked the sidelines and learned a pro offense for a year.A&MPhin84 said:Yeah, prob. Even with Brees' big franchise cap hit, they have absolute scads of cap money to spend on their rooks, and they'd trim a few mil by trading Rivers if they could restructure his deal (which im assuming will happen if they trade him, otherwise the cap hit would be out-freakin-rageous lol)
Thats actually not a bad deal for either side IMO. Rivers is the talented young QB that Frisco desperately needs (and frees their 1st rounder up for another position) so he has plenty of value to them, and the 12th pick would allow them to take Barron (They have Kwame Harris, I know, but he sucks) or a playmaker for their D like Merriman, Johnson or Erasmus James. SD gets rid of their QB controversy and is then able to pick up a big-time playmaker to throw out there with McCardell, Caldwell, and whoever else they have (Eric Parker and Tim Dwight i think). I'd do this if I were either team...sounds solid all around.
