    WHAT IF... trade for Watson

    Here me out, I saw this question brought up...

    What if we sell the farm and trade for Watson, is our roster good enough now to compete for the superbowl?

    Would we still be competive in the future just using FA and low draft picks to bring in players?

    No offensive line, no running game, no chance.

    A 12-4 team trading the farm for a QB who went 4-12 makes total sense.

    and we would no doubt have to include a couple of #1 picks so we would have a harder time building those units back up.
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama

    before I get ripped this is all hypothical...

    What would it take to trade for Watson two #1, two #2?

    I love Watson’s game but without a team around him. he went 4-12. Dude played out of his mind too.

    We probably go 7-9 with him if we traded the farm.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?
