    I'm not out on Kingsbury, but I do believe he needs a readymade QB. Watson's ability to extend plays, make something out of nothing throws on the run, etc fits the Manziel/Mahomes style that executed his offense best.

    The rumor is Watson to the dolphins for Tua and a first which isn’t far removed from a Murray trade. We aren’t going to win anything while Murray is on his rookie contract. Kyler is going to want an extension before he hits his final year and it’s going to be over $30m a year for a QB that at the end of the day could be the next Matthew stafford. He’s a guy that will put up great stats but his teams overall won’t win anything. They will make a couple playoff runs but nothing more.

    Yeah, if were picks involved they would likely be going the other way for Kingsbury's contract.

    I am like "it will never happen" but the moment I say that this will never happen is the moment Keim trades Kyler for Watson and then they hire Doug Pederson as HC thus firing Kliff. Amidst all of it, Keim keeps his job...but it will never happen.

    FWIW Stephen A Smith says his source tells him the Rams are putting together a package that includes Goff to try and get Watson

    This is the underrated and correct take. Kyler has two more years on his rookie deal, and we hope that at the end of that deal he's as good as DeShaun is right now.

    The real difference between Murray and the best nfl qb's is consistency

    Only way that happens is if McVay is IN the trade.

    Watson had an amazing season statistically, it's hard to quantify because they won 4 games and he threw only 69 passes this year in the 4th quarter of wins. Kyler threw nearly 100 more passes in that situation. But if you look at the stats in close games Watson was better than Kyler in close games he just didn't play in as many due to them being a bad team.

    Kyler takes far less sacks, and is a better runner, Watson a better thrower, higher %, and much higher YPA. I'd say this year Watson was better, more TD passes less picks higher %, but Kyler's running made it close.

    I think the deciding factor is when Kyler hurt his shoulder and couldn't run as much his production fell way off.

    If the Rams got Watson it would be interesting, McVay would find a way to get him outside the pocket so his sacks go way down and probably would make him an MVP candidate. Just don't know what they'd have to trade to get him, draft pick won't be high and the Texans probably aren't all that interested in Goff, lots of money, not a great QB, he might actually have to compete with Wolford for the job next year

    Kyler obviously has weaknesses, I love the kid I'm glad we got him but yeah in a straight up trade, Watson is the better player right now, the contract just makes it awfully tough to consider.

    the other side says only our best players have the value for a trade possibly giving an advantage to the cardinals

    The disturbing aspect has to do with the low value of our best players. Ugh
