    This is like the Cards trading Fitz in his prime for <insert non-productive RB's name here>.

    @ around 7:47 - "Last season, he just passed 6000 yards for his career. The only wide receivers to hit that milestone at a younger age are Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald."

    Rome wasn't built in one day. Our offense really has the look of an elite unit. Especially if we draft one of the OTs at 8. We can still field an average defense week 1 with some under the radar FA signings. The ingrediente are here. PP will be fully motivated going into the season. We have arguably the best pass rusher in the NFL. Budda is damn good. Murphy and Thompkins were rookies and should improve, they've already shown some nice flashes. 2nd year in the same defense after undergoing an overhaul. There are several DL, EDGE and LB still available in FA. Find the right fits and we could have a solid unit.

    What are you all getting so excited for? It’s obviously just a well-coordinated joke. It is not like something like this would ever happen. Jeeez, guys.

    What's underrated about this trade is how similar Nuk and Fitz are. Is you were to ask "Which 27 year old WR is most like 27 year old Fitz" then Hopkins would be the clear answer.

    Very similar players at the same age. Very similar careers at the same age. Both statistically and in the way both had trash QB's for the 1st 4 years of their career.

    Hopkins has more Dog in him than Fitz did. He's more likely to trash talk a CB than Fitz ever would and while Fitz has a superb catch radius and the ability to pull off stunning catches I think Hopkins is better there than Fitz was. Hopkins can pull off some unimaginable catches.

    But if you wanted to clone 27 year old Fitz then Hopkins is as close as it gets.

    I think he is more quick to free himself from the marker

    You could make the exact same video about Larry. Fitz had mostly trash QB's as well. Amazing!

    Multiple sources said the Texans shopped Hopkins and this was the best deal they could get.

    It seems like David Johnson was the key to that trade. Surprise to us but IF DJ can return to form...this isn't as bad as it looks. Maybe they get a #1 WR with our 2nd.

    Well, they signed Randall Cobb...would have to think they are also looking at DJ as a receiving weapon.
