Beason Compensation: 7th round pick

247 posts in this topic

Beason would have been an FA after this year, we would have gotten the same compensation or better, with compensatory picks

You are only given a compensatory pick if you have a net loss of free agents. You dont receive one just for losing a free agent. Factor in that Beason wouldnt be a starter and that becomes a non factor in reality. We are going to be signing free agents.

Scott - I don't disagree with you often - but

 

What you're not seeing here is that fans are tired of getting the sh!tty end of deals!  We want the front office to have the same attitude - they need to stop caring more about their "rapport" with other teams than they do "winning"!!!

 

G gave his old team a discount with Beason.  Is it simply a coincidence that there were no rumors Beason was on the trade block prior to being traded?  Or the fact that he happened to be traded to G's former team?

 

We don't need to give ANY team a discount based on our recent history - plus we compete with the Giants to make it through the playoffs and to the super bowl - why are we giving them a discount?

 

Can you honestly say that you would rather have that 7th round pick than have Beason here as Keek's backup and occasionally playing OLB?  Where does all this "he played HORRIBLY at OLB come from"?  He didn't play as well at OLB as he did at MLB but we have had worse ..

 

All I'm saying is - if we were going to trade him - we should have tried harder because as a fan I'm tired of our organization being the loser on these deals

 

Maybe in the end we will discover that this trade was conditional and if Beast reaches a certain tackles threshhold or plays a certain number of snaps we are compensated more - maybe potentially a 5th(ish) which I can live with

 

There is no way I can justify a 7th for a guy like Beast

 

If we made this trade and received Beast for a 7th the Huddlez would be blowing up about how we got the best of the Giants

 

the life of a Panther fan ..

 

Like I said - we better win this week or it's gonna be bad!!  Winning fixes everything

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah, teams trade fourth round picks for backups all the time :wacko:

(if the Panthers did that, this place would be pitchforks and torches...and rightly so)

So you admit you can't name a team with enough need to give up a better pick, but that's "irrelevant". Hilarious statement given that's the central topic of the whole discussion :lol:

And now the crux of your argument is a rumor? Seriously? Oh, but you say it was a "league rumor" not just a Huddle one. Think you can back that up? Find a reputable site that posted it? Show that it was real? You didn't just make it up, right? Well, then it shouldn't be too hard to find., now should it?

(unless of course it didn't exist) :unsure:

But here's the fun: even if you could find it, it's still just a rumor.

And if that's the best ya got, ya got nuthin' :wacko:

nobody is claiming to be brillaint - they're saying based on precedent we received less for Beast than we should have

and it's suspicious that this great deal was brokered to G's former team .. and maybe he gave them a discount

the same could be said for the "brilliant minds" that say our compensation was sufficient and are happy with "good enough" - everyone has their opinion and that's why we're here

"Well on Madden I would have gotten an early round draft pick, and a quality starter. Obviously this trade was terrible. Amateurs!"

are you claiming you know more than Madden?

glad to know that some on here believe everything they're told - "if we got a 7th then apparently there is no way in he11 we could've gotten more - Getts is God and Beason sux"

We dont even know for fact that it is a 7. Whatever it is it's over and complaining about it does nothing to change it.

Here's where I can tell you haven't read the actual story.

 

There were no rumors that Beason was on the trade block because he wasn't.  After he got benched in the Giants game, he walked in to Rivera's office and said "I want to be a starter".  Rivera said "that's not gonna happen here".  So he said "trade me somewhere that it could". 

 

And so they did.  Thing was, there was only one team with a bad enough situation that they would be willing to give something up for Beason, and that just happened to be the Giants.  If you doubt that, look back at the list I posted and point out to me what 4-3, non-division team had a worse starting MLB than Mark Herzlich.

 

Sorry, but if you can't do that, you don't have an argument.

 

 

Can you honestly say that you would rather have that 7th round pick than have Beason here as Keek's backup and occasionally playing OLB?  Where does all this "he played HORRIBLY at OLB come from"?  He didn't play as well at OLB as he did at MLB but we have had worse ..

 

How about the fact that he was benched in favor of Chase Blackburn?  And frankly, it was the right call.

 

Would I rather have Beason as a backup?  Sure, but he wasn't willing to do that.  And yes, he was playing badly at OLB.  Go back and watch the games on replay and look for him.  You'll see it for yourself (if you're willing to watch objectively).

 

 

All I'm saying is - if we were going to trade him - we should have tried harder because as a fan I'm tired of our organization being the loser on these deals

 

Maybe in the end we will discover that this trade was conditional and if Beast reaches a certain tackles threshhold or plays a certain number of snaps we are compensated more - maybe potentially a 5th(ish) which I can live with

 

That's the thing.  We're not the loser on this deal. 

 

In fact, there honestly isn't one.  Beason gets to move back to the middle and start again.  The Giants get a better player than what they had.  We get a pick for a backup that was probably gonna walk away for nothing at the end of the season anyway.

 

And again, if you think there was someone who had enough need to make a better offer, look back at the list and show me where.  If all you've got is "well, somebody would have", sorry but that's nothing.  Gimme a real world answer or none at all.

 

 

There is no way I can justify a 7th for a guy like Beast

 

If we made this trade and received Beast for a 7th the Huddlez would be blowing up about how we got the best of the Giants

 

the life of a Panther fan ..

 

Like I said - we better win this week or it's gonna be bad!!  Winning fixes everything

 

And herein lies the crux of it all...

 

Your definition of "a guy like Beast" is clouded by fan sentiment.

 

That guy you remember?  He wasn't that guy anymore.  If he were, we wouldn't be having this discussion.  And here's the thing: Nobody in the league trades for what you used to be.  They trade only for what you are right now

 

To us he's 'The Beast' because we remember how he used to play.  To the rest of the league, he's a guy who's no longer what he once was, hasn't been relevant for two seasons and who lost his starting job at two different positions, the second time to a journeyman type player.

 

He's just not an OLB, he's not a good enough MLB to start over Luke, and he wanted out.  We let him go and got something back, and were probably lucky to do so.

 

That's it :unsure:

 

Heck, the Ravens got nothing back for Ed Reed.  Fans might say "How can you let a guy like Ed Reed walk?"  The answer: Because he isn't 'Ed Reed' anymore.  And that's the answer with Beason too.

 

Sucks, but that's reality.

If you could take the first step by removing your emotion about Beason from the equation here, you would begin to understand.

It really isn't.

 

Off the top of my head, if I were to think of a couple of squads that Beason would fit on, it would be the Giants and the Bears.  Maybe Vikings, but I don't get to watch them too much.

 

Beason can't play the 34, and can't play outside.  He has to play the Mike.

 

Jon (as good as he was) had lost his job twice, and wanted out.  The other teams out there pay their GM's top money too.

you know the Reed situation is not a good comparison - he walked after his contract was up and he's old

you keep saying Beast is washed up but he's not - in fact he's led the Giants in tackles 2 of last 3 games I believe - and had more tackles than Keek in the same span

I'm not suggesting he replace Keek I'm simply saying he's not washed up

At MLB Beast is still one of the best in the NFL - that's not being a homer - the numbers speak for themself

a MLB of Beast's caliber is certainly worth more than a 7th

G gave his former team a discount - how much of a discount? I have no idea - I'm not an NFL exec - but common sense and precedent says he did

Who are your sources regarding the info regarding that he walked into Riv's office after the Giants game and demanded a trade? How about that he was a problem in the locker room?

Absolutely does not sound like Beast - he's not that guy

I'm would have no prob with the trade if it were fair (or even) - no homerism here - just tired of feeling like we are getting raped by other teams

no emotion for Beast here - just don't like giving away players to competitors

What's wrong with disagreeing with the trade? It's the same as you agreeing with it.

IMO we could've gotten more which is equivalent to you saying we got enough - neither of us really know - we're using our best judgments as fans

you should remove your emotion from the equation as a fan and you'd begin to understand
