Only way they get Watson is if they throw Donald or Ramsey in the deal.


(They (the Rams) don’t have nearly the capital to do it regardless btw)


i think that second part is correct. no 1st round pick this year, and taking Goff back would be a terrible choice relative to other options

Please, no trade with the Niners or Rams. We’re already getting pounded by both of them, can you imagine if either added Watson?

It’s ridiculous to want Watson over Murray. With our OL, Watson would get sacked 60-70 times. You’ve drafted your QBOTF. Now build around him & shut the hell up.
It is ridiculous to want a QB who is 5 inches taller, 20 lbs heavier, mobile and a better QB at this point in time?

Debatable for sure, but ridiculous?

Why? Watson is the superior QB and doesnt have physical limitations like Kyler. It's not ridiculous to want the better player. Maybe Kyler gets to Watson's level, but a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

I might have put this in another thread, but for those worried about the cost difference, that doesn't occur until 2022.

Next year, the cap difference if we traded for Watson vs keeping Kyler is 1 mil.

Only thing Kyler has over Watson is injury history due to Watson’s two torn ACLs.

That's fair, but it does seems like Murray has these nagging injuries later in the season, which considerably hamper his performance. It may be mental for him at this point.

I would add to this, if you are the Cards and you are even remotely considering inquiring, you better be sure because if you make overtures to get Watson and it gets out too quickly you are screwed. Generally speaking when discussing trading someone they don't have the very real option of saying ok I'll just quit football and go play pro baseball, Kyler has that option. if he found out about discussions and didn't want to play for the Texans he could completely derail the franchise if he wants to, no I'm not going to Houston, I'm playing baseball stick that in your pipe and smoke it

The GM’s job is to do what’s best for the team and Keim knows this is it for him. You’re right he has to be careful in what comes out publicly should we kick the tires. You can’t control what Houston leaks which they’d probably do to up the bidding war. If I’m Houston I’d tell Arizona that SF is offering three FRP’s.
