What if Marty Hurney traded away our first round pick in 2011 to move up to draft Jimmy Clausen and some other team got to draft Cam Newton?

A WHOLE PIE!

Let me ponder on that while I am busy not giving a damn about what "might" have happened 3 years ago, and watching my sexy ass Asian gf make me a sandwich in her underwear~

I could see is winding up with RG3 or worse.

Weeden or Locker or really bad.

Hurney and Fox era refused to invest in the future at QB.

What if Marty Hurney traded away our first round pick in 2011 to move up to draft Jimmy Clausen and some other team got to draft Cam Newton? 

 

It nearly happened. 

 

The Rams were sitting at 33, and Hurney tried to get the Rams to part with the pick.  What he offered is uncertain, but Hurney was aftraid that the Vikings or the Chiefs would take him.  However, if you look back at the previous draft, he gladly traded away a first rounder for a mid-second rounder, and that was not what he considered to be a franchise QB.  I have every reason to believe that Hurney was free styling this draft, operating without the head coach (lame duck Fox) in his ear.  There is little doubt that he offered a first rounder in 2011 and our second rounder in 2010.

 

The Chiefs and Vikings, both desperate for QBs, passed on Clausen again in the second round. Hurney pounced on Clausen like a kitten on a foam mouse, thinking he had killed the prey.

 

Fox's reaction was obvious.  He wanted to win now, and a developmental QB was not what he hoped for with the pick.  I can only imagine how he felt when the third round was dedicated to Edwards and Lafell, and then a tweener (Norwood) in the fourth.  Clausen was immediately slotted as the #3 QB in OTAs and in camp.

 

Some of that is conjecture based on facts and history, but what you say nearly happened.

I was hoping to get all kinds of hilarious responses to this.

We would be the laughing stock of the NFL right now

I don't think that people are in any mood to be jolly.  This dragging out of the draft process is kind of akin to cabin fever.  People are already prone to sarcasm and impatience on these boards, now some are even more sullen.

Was watching top 10 heisman winners in the nfl last night (cam was 10th). They mentioned we had 17 TDs in 2010 vs 48 in 2011. Enough said.

Yes we would be, assuming we didn't grab Luck the next season (do not RGIII playing a decade in the NFL). 

 

We were then, at least on draft days.  Remember 2009 (I think that is the year) when super Marty drafted Stewart, a RB on the operating table with the 14th pick, I think.  We had DWilliams and needed a WR and DT.  I was furious.  Then he trades away our second rounder and our first in 2011 for Jeff Otah, a right Tackle. There are not many RTs going in the middle of the first round these days.

 

In 2011, however, he had no pressure from the coaching staff--everyone knew it was Fox's last season going in.  Then the IDIOT (dubbed IDIOT by the Queen of England when he gave Delhomme, coming off Tommy John surgery and about 34 years old, three times what anyone else would have paid him--then he signed near-pro bowler Charles "I suck" Godfrey to a megadeal) traded away a second round pick for Armanti Edwards, a player most had going in the seventh round.  It was rumored that Indy and a few others faked interest in him to get Marty to pull the trigger.  If that is true, they are probably still laughing at him.
