I know I have said Orton about 20 times now in many different threads... I've said it so many times I feel it's getting annoying to other people on the board.. but I seriously think we should grab Orton, who has been solid both in Denver and Chicago..

my bad, I agree with you then...

no worries, I didn't word it very well

When was he ever leaving? I haven't heard anything to suggest he was leaving...

How do we know if Smith is still leaving?

The ONLY way I see us going for Bowers is if CJ isn't resigned, but I also feel pretty confident he will be. CJ and Hardy are a more than competent DE duo. Besides, depending on the next coaching staff, we could be looking at a 3-4 or hybrid system in the near future.

Another example is the 2003 NBA draft, the Denver Nuggets had a choice between Carmelo and Darko. They went need over talent. Needless to say, they whiffed big time on that one as well.

I believe you mean the Pistons? I think the Nuggets are very happy with their pick...the Pistons probably aren't (had to look that one up, I was thinking it was the Magic that drafted Darko).

So if we get Green, who is going to throw to him? I know it's not Clausen.

Whoever we draft in the 1st next year - be it by trading up for Luck or taking option B in USC's Matt Barkley, or someone else if there is another option. If Clausen plays like sh** again this year we'll be in prime position in next year's draft to take a top QB prospect (maybe even Luck at #1 again).

Even if we're not, I really believe Jerry will instruct Hurney to do whatever it takes to secure our franchise QB. We will end up with a top QB prospect next year if nothing else and having a WR the caliber of A.J. Green is going to be a HUGE plus when that happens.

Yes sir you are right. It was Detroit, not Denver that took him. I missed that somehow lol. Thanks for the heads up!

Stephen Paea is a guy I'd love for us to trade up to get...just not using next year's 1st, so I don't see it being possible. But if somehow it did work out, taking Green 1st and then maybe this year's third, next year's second and third to get into the 2nd to take Paea, I'd be happy.

I like Paea but I don't want Hurney any where near our future picks for a long time. At least until Armanti proves me all wrong.

Yea, I also don't think we'd be able to get Paea, he's #10 on the Big Board...3rd DT, 10 overall.
