Yeah, but you can find all that in one offseason IMO.

Re: Stafford in WFT Plans? Heís Available

These 2 teams are going to treat this like a Ufa would. Neither team is going to want to budge because it would set the mark for the other. The lions and Texans hold all the cards, I think. I'm excited to see how this all plays out, honestly. I want a qb for us, obviously...but the unbiased fan of sports side of me is incredibly interested to see how this all plays out across the league. Worst case scenario, we keep all our picks, (hopefully) have a good draft and improve other positions. See what Allen Allen Heineken have and maybe get a rookie playing behind someone who has been in the system.

Speaking of system....I'm not too familiar, so pardon the ignorance, but would Stafford fit our system?
I think he's the choice Ron will make. Watson is a long shot, and will likely require more than we should part with...as well as him wanting to leave a terrible front office situation....I'm sure he doesn't want to come here with our history of bullshit. Wouldnt make any sense.
And Matt ryan....just....no.
So Stafford seems like the de facto choice. I wouldn't mind having him if the price is right, and makes sense for both teams...no kings ransom, though. Please don't reach

Totally is.

But others are right too ... we still need a lot to fill out our roster.

I know I have read the list (probably several times in various places) of true free agent QB's ... is there any like Stafford on that list?

I know it's a "have your cake and eat it to" kinda deal, but it'd be great to have a QB WITHOUT giving up draft picks.

I say we offer a second and an autographed Riggins jersey.
I know that would be enough for me....

that was all i was saying. i want a legit qb on our roster, but i dont want to give up the farm to get them. we have a lot of holes to fill (phrasing). so if we dont get "the guy" right now, i think the team can still benefit filling other areas of need. id love to see stafford on the squad next year, but i also want to see other areas improved if detroit demands too much.....which they very well may.

regardless, though...its going to be an interesting off season (league wide), i think.

Another candidate for the Stafford Derby, the Saints if Brees does not return. They would probably be very attractive to Stafford because the Saints could literally be a championship caliber team in search of a QB.

Re: Stafford in WFT Plans? Heís Available

Is it ok if I secretly hope that A-Rod is still pissed about the Packers drafting Jordan Love enough for him to retire, then we lose the bidding war for Stafford and plan on going into the season with Heinicke as QB1, then after the draft is over Rodgers gets the itch to play again and pulls a Favre to get out of his deal and signs with us as a free agent? I can still dream that right?

Ok, let me ask, we won 7 games this year with basically garbage at QB, Stafford would probably take 3 of those close losses (Giants x2, just about any of the Haskins performances) and potentially make them wins, which would get us to 10 wins. Do you think a WR, TE, LB, and S could be found in the draft and FA??

If it ends up being a 1st a 3rd and like Landon Collins or something would you be in on that??

Maybe with Stafford this team wins three more games THIS year - perhaps even more...but they won't have the luxury of playing a bunch of backup QBs next year, and this division will be better. QB is the most glaring need, but definitely not the only need.

However, there's no reason to believe that they can't address WR, TE, LB, DB, and O-line in the draft and via free agency. Just can't "give up the farm" for a QB.

100%

Though I think it would likely command a 1, 3, and Jonathan Allen or Montez sweat.

Which I wouldn't be ok with.
