    "Dear Lord, don't let Matt Stafford get traded to the Chicago Bears." Amen

    I have to believe that top two destinations for him are either the Colts or Washington. I could see the loser of the Wentz/Hurts battled coming to Detroit though for the right price in trade capital.

    The Texans are dumb enough to trade Watson to the Bears or Lions. Let's hope that never happens. Stafford with the Bears would make them a 10 to 11 win type of team.

    Not sure Washington is ready to give up on Heinicke to back up Smith. RFA contracts are cheap. Indy would be a good spot for him as well as Houston. Stafford for Watson?? Hmm.
    I don't see Philly being able to move from Wentz unless they empty the cupboard. They are over $50-80m over the cap now and trading Wentz gains them almost nothing. Cutting him sets them back another $25m. Stafford brings along a $10-20m salary, depending on who pays the bonuses. I read they also hired their coach to work with Wentz. If forced to pick, I could see Hurts getting moved for a raft of needed picks because of the upcoming salary purge. He looked good and is headed back to the bench, at least short term.

    San Francisco makes the most sense to me.
    Cutting Garoppolo to make room is only a cap hit of $2.8M with a savings of $24.1M

    Definitely forgot about how much they sank into Wentz. Well I really hope Hurts finds a good situation then. He could probably be electric in a dome too. Wherever Stafford goes I hope it isn't in the NFC. Colts, Texans, Patriots, Dolphins, Jets, or even the Broncos.

    Stafford could improve quite a few teams. I always thought that he was a better QB than what the pathetic Lions organization made him look.

    I'm just hoping they don't figure out a way to Package him and whatever else it would take to get Jacksonville to part with the #1 pick and Trevor Lawrence.

    With how far back the Colts are in the Draft they'll miss out on the premier signal callers. Plus even if they go QB 1st Round they don't have to put them in right away, Stafford has a solid 5 years I'd say as a QB, they could draft a a guy and go the same route the Packers did with Love.

    There's a rumor going around Dallas is looking to trade for Stafford and I sure don't want that guy starting at qb for us
    It's bad enough we already have panty waste players on our squad

    The last thing we need is more garbage

    McCarthy really helped to make Rodgers what he is today. Give it a chance, Stafford might be a Pro Bowler in 5-10 years! :coffee:

    Jerry Jones is a terrible poker player, he is just trying to bring Dak's asking price down. You aren't ending up with Stafford.

    On a side note. Personally, I don't think Stafford is garbage, I think he has been stuck with a garbage team though. Put him on the right team and in the right system and I think he will surprise a few people.

    Stafford is a much better QB than the Lions record over his tenure suggests. The following article goes over it much better than I could -

    This happens if McCarthy approves. MM went against Stafford twice a season for 10 years excepting injury games. He would have a good idea what works and doesn't.

    I don't think it will happen, because they are in the same Division, but the team that could probably benefit the most by trading for Stafford are the Bears. I really think they are just a really good QB away from competing in the North. Personally, I am hoping Stafford goes to an AFC team.

    I dunno who their GM is, but give THAT man 2021 GM of the Year. Gets an All-Pro QB AND has cap space to get a decent role player or resign a guy.

    I think Stafford carries a $20m cap hit with him. 2 year contract. Without extending him the Rams are sending a 1st round pick for someone not on the roster.

    The Rams will be going 7 straight Seasons without a first round pick. I think with Stafford wanting out of Detroit, the Lions got about as much value as they could for him. Rams shove all in with Stafford as their QB and on a pretty cheap contract to boot.

    I can't understand this at all from the Rams.

    I realize that Matthew Stafford is better than Jared Goff.

    But unless I'm missing something, I think that the cap savings, and the additional cap burden of Stafford's base salary is basically a wash.

    So you're basically saying that Stafford, 33, is worth Goff, 26, plus two 1st rounders and a 3rd rounder. I don't buy that at all.

    Also, the Rams are now slated to be without a 1st round pick in 6 our of 7 consecutive drafts. That's going to catch up to their roster quality in the near future.

    I guess I say good for Detroit and WTF are the Rams thinking? I don't think Goff is really anything worth writing home about and he still is going to cost them some good cash for a couple years, but 2 extra firsts and a 3rd, nice work.
