Would you trade for Russell Wilson if it's a better deal than trying for Watson?

I think because Watson sounds much more definitive about being done...

Long-range talk is cheap.

As time passes the cost increases dramatically...

...let's see how resolute he is when real economic consequences are looming.

Me too.. I just can't put my finger on why.  He just seems so ...so... 

As a person he seems like a good dude.  Does a lot of charity work. good family man etc.. 

But I don't like him... that about it.  

For me, he seems calculated and inauthentic.

Wilson hasn't really said anything on that scale. He's let the speculation linger out there though. He seems like he's posturing more than anything else. But, you never know. TB12's move and success with the Bucs probably got a lot of the 30+-year-old signal caller's minds to thinking.

 

Neither one has really "said" anything so I was probably a bit sloppy in my response. The PR coming from the Wilson camp seems more about getting him more power within the organization whereas the PR coming from Watson's camp seems more genuinely about getting out of Houston.

Not interested. I personally believe that Wilson is approaching a decline. He isn't the biggest in structure, and has had to consistently scramble and taken sacks for many years years now. If you go back and see how he started the season compared to how he finished, I actually thought he slowed down last year.

I'm going to try and answer this objectively. 

Given the parameters of your structured inquiry. I would have to say yes. If it costs less than Watson, age be damned. Depending on the cost, the value is high for Wilson and with this offense, if CMC, WR corp is kept in this scenario. Yes. I would absolutely want Wilson for a lesser cost than Watson. 

If you're talking about a 1st and a second next year. Yes. Does not break the bank and he would still theoretically be available at least 5 years. Not selling the farm for him, with at least 4 years to build around him. But given the fact that this defense is young and the offense is not as bad as some may think, Wilson would turn this franchise around. If we are talking about 3 1st, then no..I do not want him. 

That’s pretty much where I’m at with this too. I don’t like him, but having good QB play again is far more important and at a less crippling cost, we could be competitive right away

I would jump all over that if we had a decent O-Line to protect him. Cam and his mobility allowed us to seemingly neglect the O-Line for years.  If we are not going to put some big boys with talent up in front then I want the youngest and fastest QB option possible.

Our Oline was decent last year. With the picks we save this way we can treat the oline like we treated the defense in the draft last year. Resign, or at least tag, Moton, draft LT with our first pick (hell, if someone we like is still there in the mid to late first I wouldn’t mind trading next years first to trade back into the first). Then the next few picks get spent on the interior oline.  With that strategy we could be even better than last year on the oline

Thats because it's all an act.
