Whether this turns out to be good or bad, I like the move for the message it sends.
    I totally 100% agree. Demonstrates the organization isn't quitting on this season like the fans. IMO this is a great move and we have a very good player who we could have for a decade.

    Yep

    A deal like this would have made sense a week ago.

    Trading away a 1st round pick that has a pretty good chance to be in the top 10 seems very stupid.

    Great job Colbert!
    Getting a good safety is good.

    Trading away the a pick that could reasonably be the next franchise QB is bad.

    I think the reaction to this trade will depend on how bad people thing we'd be.

    I think we were shaping up to be pretty bad with an unproven QB and an average at best D. Yesterday I was kind of excited about a year where we got to test out Rudolph, but if he failed maybe we end up with some kind of Manning to Luck transition (or Montana to Young for us older folks).

    On the bright side, the Dolphins will probably get two very high picks so maybe someone else in that division ends up being competitive.

    Like I said, if Ben wasn't hurt and we were even 1-1, this move is awesome. Now, it kinda reeks of desperation. Hopefully Mason's the real deal, and if we draft in the late teens, this move is great.
    I dont think its desperation, i think it says they believe Rudolph is the real deal and this year is not dead. Rudolph did throw 2 Td's against that Hawks defense and if the defense could of made a stop down the stretch we win that game.

    I think it means they think Ben will come back and play till the end of his contract.

    Fitzpatrick is only 22 so I kind of feel like we’re just getting next year’s first round draft pick right now.

    Exactly. We’re giving up a potential top 10 pick for a player that I would have loved to select in the top 10. We’ve been searching for a good safety...we just found one.

    Was early when I read this and I thought it meant we traded our first for R. Fitz, which would have been obviously catastrophic
