We we willing to give him away for a second.

One of the best moves I've seen Howie make.

Yes it was.

It will be tough taking a 2 game step back in the W column and having our false playoff hopes end a few weeks earlier than they would have with Sam, but in the long run, you HAD to do this deal. We would never have gotten anywhere near this for him at any other time.

It's not a forgone conclusion that there will be fewer wins without Bradford. He could have gotten injured, he still could get injured. The weird thing is that if he doesn't produce for the Vikes we could end up improving our draft position from what we gave to Cleveland. ohmy.gif

Possibly up to a 2 game deficiency, but with a higher ceiling, IMO. I would not call it out of the realm od possibility that the kid thrives and plays better than Bradford this year. Its not that high of a bar for a guy with top 5 qb potential.
