  • No chance. Wouldn't make sense for either side. AZ needs help on their O-line and a credible running threat. Doesn't matter who is behind center if those areas aren't addressed. You're telling me they're going to give up the face of their franchise for a largely unproven QB who will subsequently have absolutely no weapons to throw to whatsoever? Right.

    For Seattle, just doesn't make sense to sink that much money in the guy. Added depth the receiving corp. would definitely help, but truly elite QBs don't need all-world receivers to run a dominant offense. I really hope we don't break the bank trying to address that area. Let's develop the pieces we have and add depth in the draft. If there's a good value proposition for an established WR, we should explore that as well. Absolutely no need to pay a king's ransom for a Calvin Johnson/Fitzgerald type.

    Are you kidding? Stronger? Flynn would not make AZ stronger if you then took away Fitzgerald. It would make us stronger but certainly the positives brought by Flynn would be offset by the gigantic hole left in Fitz's absense.

  • No, Larry Fitzgerald has a huge mega contract that I would not want to pay for.
    Larry is taking up all the cap space and is the reason why the Cardinals suck.

    I think its 8 year 100million dollar contract?

    We don't need anything more? You just described the perfect receiver. It's not like they grow on trees, you know. Those are really the only two things that matter that every team looks for in a receiver.

  • Honestly, if Fitzgerald was on the waiver wire I would not take him. Go to Spotrac and look at his cap hits for the next six or seven years. If we traded Flynn for Fitz, you might as well throw in Sherman and Earl, because we wouldn't have the money to extend them with that kind of contract on the books.

    He also declined this year after putting up 1400 yards with the same QBs in 2011. Who's to say that decline isn't real?

    AZ could end up releasing Fitz in a couple years. When that happens, I'd give him a reasonable contract. Until then, he's not worth it.

    Get rid of a back up that's expensive is not the same as bringing someone that would actually pay that's expensive.

    Do you realize HOW expensive we're talking for Fitz?

    2013: $5 million (+ $10 million option bonus due 3/15), 2014: $12.75 million, 2015: $8 million (+ $8 million roster bonus), 2016: $15 million, 2017-2018: $14.75 million, 2019: Free Agent

    You need to stop following these people because they obviously no nothing about player values. On top of that, Fitz is the AZ team and his contract which was over 100M, would be hard to fit and would make it impossible to sign some of our own young stars.

  • Montana needed Taylor and Clark and Jones to compliment Rice, but point of your statement is correct, you need guys that can seperate and catch the ball.

    Most also had a decent rushing attack, James with Manning, Tyler, Craig, Watters in S.F., Warner Faulk, Bradshaw Blier and some Italian guy named Harris, Smith in Dallas, Marino was the only one that really had no rushing attack, and by chance the only one on that list not to win a Superbowl.

    Oh, and on the whole "QBs needing elite WRs to be successful" point.....

    Brady hasn't had an elite WR outside of Moss for one year. They've trotted out tons of journeymen in and out of that system and that QB. Brady made Welker elite, not the other way around. Branch was borderline elite when he was in NE, but he came here and showed he was merely above average. Went back to NE with Brady and bang! he's good again.

    Gee, you think playing with HOF QBs might have aided in the development of some of those guys? Go look at Harrison and Wayne's career trajectory. Harrison's receiving yards went from 776 to 1,663 in Peyton's second year. It took Wayne four seasons with Peyton to break 1,000 yards. And now look what Peyton's doing for Decker and Thomas in Denver.

    Please go see what Tom Brady has done for an entire career without a legitimate #1 receiver (besides Moss for one season). Please check out how the 2005 Seahawks had the most dominant offense in the NFL with a receiving corp worse than what we have now. Please take notice that Victor Cruz and Wes Welker were undrafted free agents who developed chemistry with great QBs. And finally, you might have already recognized that Russell Wilson has helped Golden Tate go from consensus bust to valuable contributor in a single season.

    No one is denying we need to add more depth at WR. We just don't need to compromise significant cap space or talent to do it. Obsessing over finding "stud receivers" is quick way to bury your franchise. Go ask Detroit or Oakland how that worked out for them.

  • You would catch VD with Eli. If you were on the Giants, I give you 6 yards, 1 catch, and an extra point for the year.

    True, Eli is a gambler and creates opportunities, but Nicks is good, and Cruz is a better UDFA than Baldwin by far.

  • Also, regarding the perception that our receivers can't get "separation": a lot of this has to do with how careful Russell is with the ball, which is a great thing at this stage in his development. He doesn't make a lot of risky throws. As he continues to build chemistry with his receivers and as his own skills continue to develop, he'll become more confident in making the tighter throws, and the whole "separation" thing will become less of an issue.

    Hmm

    Peyton Manning had Harrison/ Wayne
    Montana had Rice
    Steve Young had Rice
    Marino had Duper and Clayton
    Warner had Bruce and Holt
    Aikman had Irvin
    Bradshaw had Swann and Stalworth

    Just for starters , would you like me to continue


    Gee, you think playing with HOF QBs might have aided in the development of some of those guys? Go look at Harrison and Wayne's career trajectory. Harrison's receiving yards went from 776 to 1,663 in Peyton's second year. It took Wayne four seasons with Peyton to break 1,000 yards. And now look what Peyton's doing for Decker and Thomas in Denver.

    Please go see what Tom Brady has done for an entire career without a legitimate #1 receiver (besides Moss for one season).

    Wayne had 1355 yards this year without Manning..
    Also, the year Brady had Moss it was by far his best statistical year.

    No doubt that the HOF QB is good on his own, but to say that the QB makes them is a stretch. The only conclusion I can come to would be that it would definitely help a lot to have a pro bowl caliber WR on our team
