Still trying to trade Burns?

Exactly. Burns was awesome last year before the wrist injury, and he has been a revelation this year.

Imagine what he can do with a full deck on defense

Anyone who was calling for burns to get traded is a clown to begin with.

There were a bunch of threads about it in the offseason, mainly about him not being a fit in the 4-3 that Snow would run. I recall being open to trading him for the right haul back then due to some question marks about his fit in the scheme (stupid in hindsight), but there were also others who would've been fine if we gave him away because they considered it a "wasted pick by the previous regime who ran a different scheme." 

 

Now, I wouldn't trade him for anything that a team would consider. Every player in the league has a price (even guys like Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, etc.) but Burns is about as close as untouchable as it gets for us. Any price we'd accept, nobody would be willing to pay.

I'd honestly argue that Burns is the most important player on our team right now. We all saw what happened to our pass rush when he went out against Atlanta. And he almost singlehandedly kept our defense in the game against the Aints... McCaffrey is our best player, no doubt, but the dropoff from him to Davis is less of an impact than the dropoff from Burns to whoever, and it's at one of the most important positions in the game right now. I can't think of a more important Panther right now. You could say Teddy because of QB and our backups, but I'd still go with Burns being more important to this team.

Ah ok I guess that makes some sense and is at least a slightly defensible position. I wasn’t around during the offseason.

Yeah I can understand the mindset that I had at the time looking back of -- if we can get a relatively high 1st round pick + in return for Burns, maybe you consider it since he seemed to be a better fit in a 3-4 than a 4-3 at the time. 

 

Looking back though, it's clear as day that the dude is just an insanely talented pass rusher in any scheme, and those guys don't grow on trees. His level of importance here is so high that any potential trade wouldn't make sense for both parties. Would have to be an insane overpayment, and Bill O'Brien is out of the league now....

Yeah, the basement GM's really were going off about paying McCaffrey AND trading Burns. That's why "Huddle gonna Huddle" is a thing

Like one person here who always posts unintelligent things. I cannot remember who as there are so many that they run together.
