They should not give any first rounder regardless of where it’s at. lol why are you guys not getting this?
Yeah... I dunno. I'd trade a first-round pick after, like eighth overall for a young-ish, proven head coach. McVay, Shanahan, Tomlin, Harbaugh, those types.
Why? Because even if there's a 60% chance of that draft pick panning out to be an All-pro-type player (and I think that's super-generous TBH), there's a 100% chance that the guys above are going to be at the top of their game for 10+ more years with little risk of injury. That's a risk scenario that I can live with.
I don't really get why people are completely enamored with Sean Payton, though. This is a guy who was accused of being a drunk and abuser of painkillers like two years ago.
I agree with this statement. Pretty much every head coach trade wasn't worth it in the end.
Really? The Seahawks traded a 2nd for Mike Holmgren and he coached that team for 10 years and went to the playoffs six times including a visit to the Super Bowl.
Bill Belichick resigned from the Jets and was traded to New England for a package of three picks including a first-rounder. Seems to have worked out okay for them.
Jon Gruden was moved from Oakland for two firsts and two seconds and immediately won the Super Bowl with Tampa Bay. In the seven years he coached the Bucs they went to the playoffs three times.
Of course, Bruce Arians won a Super Bowl with Tampa.
Houston has #12 & Denver has #29.
Yes, but those draft picks came to them via trade. The picks they earned are 2nd overall (HOU) and 5th overall (DEN). I don't understand what your point is.
