Maybe, but apparently without seeing a SINGLE game played... it wasn't too early for a lot of people to deem this franchise a failure.

Oops.

Chicago's.

Alphie was a steal.

And it's not even about who finishes with the better record. McD (Sorry, Baja, Josh....) will not get any credit for it of course. But it was a stroke of McGenius to not even make the pick conditional.

Chances are that there will be no more than 5 draft slots separating the two picks anyway.......Even if Chicago ends up going farther in the playoffs, (which I doubt)... I'd still take their #26 over our #22 all day every day given what it meant to this team from a circling the wagons point of view.

Yes it would be a lousy message to send to your team if you made an issue about getting your own 1st reasoning it would be higher than the team's that you traded your star QB too. Not a good way to start the season. Josh has been way ahead of all of the haters and I'm LMAO.

People who thought we would be giving Seattle a top 10 pick were probably wrong. Also before he went down Alphonso was contributing. We will need him big time against Patriots so hopefully he will be better. What's the word on his injury?

As we get into the teams like Pats, Colts that use a lot of 3-4 wr sets we will need all the Cbs healthy.

all offseason, how many times were these two terms posted:

potential top 10 pick
potential top 5 pick

how many times i had to tell people "it could also be a bottom 10 pick too" but no one cared.

I don't know bro...There's an awful lot of people here qualified to run NFL teams because they read stuff on the internetz.

Oh, and don't forget about BF7....He's an "above average" fan that delves into the intricacies and all.

Except they never added "potential" to their predictions.

I wouldn't be surprised if Josh had BF7 on speed dial.

BF7 a joke but Rasta just as bad. He actually thinks regardless of winning, we should be starting Simms. Orton has a top 10 qb ratig and is 4-0 and he argues we should try Simms.

It's so stupid it's hard to even fathom his thinking.

I've argued with butt****7 for two days now, and I've realized it's no use. He's too far gone, he has to keep at it and hope Orton falls apart. Hell, he would have benched Elway in 97 because of his completion percentage.

My favorite one was...
"McDaniels has set this franchise back 10 years!"
No with this defense, he didn't...

I get it Dave...I really do.

BUT:

I still think the motivational factor trumps all and that it was absolutely premeditated.

You are right.

When I made my comment, I didn't consider the motivational factor. McD trading his own pick probably was an indirect vote of confidence in the team and challenged them to get it done. Guess in the long run, that will be more important and a little lower draft pick. Draft picks are crapshoots anyway.

But, again... if you're going to ask the question, you have to ask the WHOLE question...

Is the DIFFERENCE between our pick and the Chicago pick worth giving up to have A. Smith THIS year, in our system... learning and contributing.

By the end of this year (as I said in the pre-season) ... we'll probably be looking at 10-15 slots that we gave up, if that. Now it looks like potentially even less.

So, the proper question to ask at the time of the trade was... is giving up some first round draft slots NEXT year worth it to have a CB we need, and had targeted THIS year.

This trade never had the monumental risk attached that people attempted to attribute to it, and as it plays out... it appears that it was a very sound, logical trade.

Hmmm, that's weird. Four games in is a bit early, but that didn't stop you from declaring doom and gloom in March. What changed? Did you find a new found respect for patience?
