Funny what a difference a year makes.....lol

But as they pointed out he was going from #8 to #2 and the team @ #2 has--or thinks they have-- a QB.

That's a big difference from #20 to #1 and the team @ #1 needs a QB. Also Mariota was more highly respected than Goff or Wentz.

Didn't they start at 13?

and lets look at the overall cost...

The #2 they gave up to get Bradford
Maxwell (like him or hate him it now creates a need at corner)
Alonzo (same as above but this means an issue of depth)
5 picks (they get their guy and a late 4th round compensatory pick from Cleveland as per the actual deal)

That is the actual cost of getting Wentz.....

Not quite.

We won't know the actual cost until we know just how high a first round pick we gave up in 2017.

That may add weight to the "keep Bradford "argument, because he is our best hope of a decent record next season.

Don't forget the money

Rookie wage scale means you would have gotten Mariota for 4 years at $25... Instead of $35 for 2 years of Bradford (assuming they cut the cord at end of this year)

But then that bleeds into other stuff like Howie still being silenced, Chip still the coach, probably saving another $7m on Chase Daniel, etc, etc...

A week ago I would've said we're doing quite well, I liked how we got up to #8 and the other transactions made so far this year. Now, that all goes to shit.

Yep, adjusted for cash of the moves (cap too).

Howie definitely singing a different tune.

Did anyone call him out on it?

Decamera said that Howie said when talking to a close associate of Joe's that "when you come back from the dead, you have no fear."

Maybe the Dali Lama (sp) told him to do this when he went on a world "how to be a leader and not be an insecure backstabbing son of a bitch" tour on Jeffy's dime and Chip's time. biggrin.gif
