Default Chargers trade 3rd string QB to Seattle (fleece job)

No way was this guy worth what they got. Sheesh, come on Seattle...

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post...drafting-power

Charlie Whitehurst may make the San Diego Chargers better immediately and down the road.

Not bad for a guy who has never thrown an NFL pass.

Taking advantage of the Seahawks’ need to develop a young quarterback, the Chargers received a great bounty for a player who has never been a factor and did not appear to have a future in San Diego any time soon.

In return for Whitehurst, Seattle flipped second-round picks with San Diego in next’s month draft and will send the Chargers a third-round pick in 2011. San Diego will now draft No. 40 in the second round, 12 picks after its No. 28 selection in the first round. San Diego, which had the No. 60 pick in the second round, now has three third-round picks in 2011. The Chargers got a third-round pick next year when it sent cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the Jets earlier this month. The choice can improve to a second-round pick based on Cromartie’s playing time.

These two trades give San Diego great flexibility and a great opportunity to reload.

The Chargers have more draft needs this year than in recent years, and these trades will allow them to find several quality players. The Chargers need a running back and a nose tackles. They should be able to address those needs at No. 28 and No. 40.

San Diego could potentially package both picks and move up in the first round to get Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, who is considered the best back in the draft, if he is available in the 12-15 range. San Diego could also start using those 2011 third-round picks as trade bait.

The Chargers are in a position of strength – all because they traded their third-string quarterback, who was selected with the 81st pick of the third round in 2006. Whitehurst was nowhere near unseating Billy Volek as Philip Rivers’ backup.

I know some San Diego fans haven’t been thrilled with the team’s lack of activity this offseason. But this was a huge move. Getting this type of value for guy who doesn’t play is simply stunning.

Watch for San Diego to try to replace Whitehurst late in the draft with a developmental quarterback prospect. No offense to Whitehurst, but he will not be difficult for San Diego to replace. But his value to Seattle should pay off big for the Chargers

The sad thing about this is that I don't believe we can get nearly that much for KO.

Whitehurst is a QB that I really liked coming out of Clemson. Potential a very good deal for both teams. Reminds me a lot of the Schaub deal between Houston and Atlanta.

They'll also probably get a 4th or 5th in 2011 due to our signing of Jamaal Williams, right?

He was cut, so they won't get compensation for him.

All of the sudden I don't feel like it's impossible for us to get the 6th pick for Marshall.

I understand, but I think Seattle looked at this situation and thought Whitehurst was better gamble then drafting a QB this season. Seattle didn't lose much, they still have a 2nd round draft (in a deep draft) and lost a 3rd in two years. Add in Denver's 1st round pick a they are pretty solid.

Don't like that the Chargers now pick 5 spots before us in round 2 - very possibly could take a NT there that we might be interested in.

I'd prefer #14 and the 2nd they just got from SD.

Maybe that is why they did it. They tried talking to Denver about an alternative to the 6th overall and McDaniels said its #14 and a 2nd or the 6th overall, no wiggle room, so Carroll figures he'd use some of that 2nd rounder's value to get a QB and then flip us a later 2nd instead.

It's like they are more interested in ****ing over other teams than actually winning with a trade like this. Bunch of idiots in Seattle.

No way we get a first AND second for Marshall. Maybe #14 and a 3rd or 4th rounder. And since they just gave away their 3rd round pick in next year's draft, I doubt they would offer up any of their 2011 picks in a trade.

At this point if Denver is really serious about unloading Marshall they should strongly consider the #14 pick. If they are content on keeping him, then they should stick to their guns.

I think at this point, we've probably dug in our heels as far as the compensation we want. If no one is willing to cough it up we'll bring back Marshall on his tender and go from there.

And they wouldn't trade the 6th overall pick for Marshall but they swap second round picks and give up a third for a career 3rd string quarterback?

That's Mike Holmgren, certified QB genius at work. At least all the idiots around here told me he was a QB genius, although I doubt we'll be hearing that anymore.

Wow. If they give away the #14 on Marshall then they're draft is going to only be o.k.

I wouldn't doubt that they pass on BM at this point.

The Seahawks essential gave up the value of a late 2nd/early 3rd round pick. #40 (500) & #60 (300) have a difference of 200 points. A 3rd next year has the value of 4th this year. So the Chargers got the value of 250-290 points about the value of a pick between 61-68
