Default McNabb could land 1st and another pick.

Reports in rotoworld and other sites say, mcnabb will get a 1st rounder for philly and more. WTF ? why would anyone want to give up 1st unless they are ready to win now. The only team i can see giving up that for mcnabb is vikings. correct me if i am wrong, but i would rather see a young QB drafted and developed than giving up 1st for mcnabb

giving up anything more than a low third is retarded for a 33 year old qb with injury problems

They are trying the best they can to get more than what mcnabb is worth. I wonder who is the GM who will bite this bullet

IMO anything less than 3rd is not worth it. He will never play all reg season games in a given year ever again.

you are talking about passing up a prospect like Corey Wooten for an old injury prone qb

If youre gonna replace Orton, dont do it with another stop gap, draft a qb and develop him

If you're a team on the verge of putting it all together, why not? I'd use a low first rounder on him, if I thought he was the last piece of the puzzle.

That said, I'd love to see the Cheaps use their first on him this year, lol.

Orton has been struggling to remain healthy the last couple years as well. i hear what you are saying, and given the apparent "model" its about the system and the QB developing within it. In which case you will see Orton return, and Brandstater and Wooten (insert another project QB here) develop behind him.

I don't think McNabb alone gets us to the superbowl, but I do think he gives us a better chance to win games especially with the improvement to the team that should happen in the off-season. I would be willing to trade a 2nd rounder.

Never. 2nd, maybe. 1st rounder? Nope. He's got about another two to three years shelf life.

We need longer term solutions.

i wouldn't even trade a 3rd for the guy. a few seasons ago, i would have definitely given up a 1st for the guy, but now at his age, and the fact that he is falling apart and looking more and more like McNair at the end of his career he isn't worth it.

also, the fact that he will need to learn the system hinders him from being an upgrade over Orton who will be in his 2nd season as our starter.

also, trading for him costs us a valuable pick in a really deep draft class, plus we would still need to draft a QBOTF, because McNabb doesn't have much longer in the NFL.

i say stand pat with Orton, draft, Clausen, Snead, Lefevour, Canfield or Skelton and build one of those guys up to be our QBOTF.

The Eagles are really playing this well, creating a market for the guy that may yield a 1st. Minnesota and Arizona are both possible candidates, and you can't completely rule out several other teams like Buffalo and Cleveland.

But I agree completely with those above who say it would be a bad move for Denver. A 2nd I'd have to consider, a 3rd I would do.

I could see the Raiders doing this, he fits their scheme. Do I want them to? NO! Donovan is the best deep passer in the league.

Pass on giving up a first-round pick for McNabb at this point in his career...

Of course McNabb is worth a first rounder. Perhaps not to us, but to a team on the verge of a SB, like the Vikings... of course he is.

Take Favre off the Vikings and they're a .500 team.

McNabb has a few good seasons left, and he's an upgrade over most QBs in the league.
A team on the brink of being a contender should have no problem giving up a first for him.

1st round picks are an absolute crap shoot. For every Pro Bowler, there are 2 busts or sub-par players.

A proven commodity at QB is worth a 1st round pick for the right team.

They will keep him and Kolb. Vick is gone.

If Favre retires they might get a second. Farve will give it one more round. There ware some horrible calls in OT against the Saints.

15 million is hard to turn down when Minn was so close.

If Philly can somehow get a 1st from someone for McNabb, they would be crazy not to take it.
