    I will begin by saying that by draft time I think we will all be exhausted from all the talk and wishing/hoping about what The Cards should and will do day 1 of the draft. I am about there right now as I type this. But what the hell, I have nothing better to do this morning, so here goes.

    After reading some of the today’s new threads, especially the one regarding Peter Griffin, I mean King (lol), I have finally, after all these weeks of not feeling fully satisfied with any of our choices and our suggestions, seen what I believe is the light at the end of the tunnel, and the ultimate solution/answer to our draft.

    Let me add one caveat before I serve you the main course. All bets are off and totally needless if our front office from the very beginning hired KK as a package deal w/ Murray in order to make this hiring work and be meaningful. If that is the case, then the concrete was poured weeks ago.

    But if that wasn’t the case, then here is a great answer to our puzzle. I am taking one liberty in that I feel that there are 3 players whose talent is so above everyone else that we would agree that the Cards would benefit equally for years with any. They are of course Bosa, Williams, Allen, with both Hockenson and Oliver being close alternatives if needed.

    Now here is the play: We trade our #1 for another very high 1st (1-6) along with a 2nd #1 or high 2nd at the least, along with a #1 in next year’s draft, which should end up being a top 10 if our trade is with NY or Raiders. If we get more great, but this is a fair minimum expectation in my opinion. In doing this we assure ourselves a top player most of us would covet and feel thrilled about getting even if we didn’t trade back. We get at least 2 more quality starters to fuel the rebuilding of our team. We commit to Rosen for at least 1 year to see if he can run KK’s air raid offense. If not, we will have 2 #1s next draft to find a QB who can, or we cut ties with KK and hire a head coach who can allow Rosen to succeed in a more traditional system. In doing this we are allowing both KK and Rosen to succeed, and at the same time, giving ourselves time to evaluate both fairly in order to decide which may need to go, stay, and the direction we want to go in from there.

    I think this is as close to having our cake and eating it too that there is and will be. We have a once in a lifetime chance to improve our team greatly, and at the same time not painting ourselves in a corner with no outs. We get a top stud player, extra quality picks to rebuild our team, a chance to see how successful Rosen can be and in what system he needs to succeed. We give our new coach a chance to show us if his ideas can succeed in the NFL. All this can be done in only one year with no bad result costing us years and years of more frustration and disappointment. Plus there is one more thing, and this is big, we don’t risk trading Rosen needlessly and watching him in a year or two tear up the league on someone else's team.

    That’s my shining light. Feel free to tell me if I am peering down the right tunnel or just into another empty hole.

    A logical fit (whatever the terms) would give us Wilson who in turn would mentor Murray.

    Except I don't think Schneider would want to deal within his division.

    I see the original NY deal making the most sense for all teams..you get Wilson out of the division. Seattle gets a young cheap qb with upside. We get Clark to pair with Jones and get KKs QB at 1. Russell gets his snobby wife what she wants and goes to NY. Lol

    Bout the only way Seattle would trade RW to Arizona is a Ricky Williams kind of deal when he was drafted the WHOLE Show each and every pick then they may not even then

    Way too much to give up for Wilson.He won`t turn this show around by himself.Neither will Murray if he is the pick.you got to have some other horses.Cards have too many other areas that need upgrading to spend that much capital on a QB.

    It is over, but this is fundamentally wrong. Wilson does do that, and if you take Murray #1, he will be expected to as well. You do whatever it takes to get a top 10 NFL QB, and you figure out the rest. Chandler Jones doesn't matter without a legit QB. Patrick Peterson doesn't matter without a legit QB. Larry Fitzgerald has been irrelevant without a legitimate QB. Those are amazing players, but it shows that it all starts and ends with the QB.

    I was starting to think the Seahawks were going to gamble on starting over with a cheap rookie QB, since it worked for them before. They sure waited until the last second to make a deal.

    Which is why I would gamble on Murray. I think that Murray is going to be better than Rosen.
