They say give up a 3rd rounder or maybe a 2nd rounder.


I'd be okay with a 3rd rounder. But nada chance for a 1st. If Brodie flops we are going to need the ability to draft a QB.

Boldin's 27, a top level NFL reciever who will still be able to bring it at age 30/31 when we are ready to compete in 2010/2011.

We have the cap room.

If he can't get along with Herm which coach can he get along with?

Boldin wants out of AZ? Bowe/Boldin would be a nice combo. Doubt if it would happen, though. I wouldn't give up more than a 3rd for him. We have too many other holes to fill and need our draft picks.

Zouk

Here's the only problem: he's under contract for 3 more years and the Cards won't trade him. I think this is a whole lot about nothing.

I say no way to giving up more than a 2nd and even at that I dont know I would be ok with it. If we can do it for a 3rd ok but his contract should be laced with incentives that wont kill us going into the next few years. I also wonder why with Darling and Franklin commin on like they are that we would even be looking at a WR lets go find a little more O-line help.

This is the NFL. The player threatnes to sit out be unhappy, cause chit in the locker room, talk trash to the media etc etc.

The team can kick you to the curb at a moments notice with nothing more than what ever is left of your SB. It's the only leverage a player has.

Honoring a contract in business and in real life is important but in the NFL contracts are not honored all the time. They are structured so they can be broken or nullified. Different world.

You're oblivious to the past and seem more than willing for the Chiefs to repeat their mistakes.

Why not give players like DVD, Franklin and this year's secret weapon, Maurice Price, a chance?

This isn't a quick fix. Bowe can be gone by 2011. He may want a gazillion $'s and we don't want to pay. You only get 3-4 years of cap space the team controls from the present in the NFL cap era. After that players want more money, contracts have to be renegoiated etc.

A 27 yr old probowl WR is not quick fix. It's a guy that can contribute for the next few years. Which is when we we have to make a run.

We have to be getting seriously ready to compete in 09-10.

He is a very talented and still young WR but it seems the complicated bit is he wants a new contract that pays like a top WR, which he is.

exactly, some people dont understand rebuiding and think its just drafting youg players and waiting 20 years for them to develop. Teams that rebuild successfully and win superbowls often do it within a couple years and add several top free agents along the way. Nobody wins with just guys they've drafted unless you draft one of the greatest players of all time

How is a 27 year old Pro Bowl reciever a quick fix? He is going to be good for probably at least 3-4 years. For a third round pick I would take him in a heartbeat, the guy is an amazing reciever, and arguably better than anyone we have on the roster. Yes I think Bowe is very good but he isn't Boldin good...yet...

If we were one player away from taking a run at the big dance, I would say go for it, but, that is not the case. Toss out the facts the guy has a bum knee and would eat up a ton of cap room and I would have to take a pass.

I think he would be a decent addition on paper but it looks like he might be a little too high maintanence for this squad. It seems to me that everyone on the team (except LJ) are really quiet and conservative in their nature. I just dont think it would be a good move.

But hey, what the f**k do I know?

Pestilence
08-20-2008, 09:26 AM
We'd have to give up at least a 2nd round pick for it....plus he's going to want a new contract when the trade happens. Then throw in the fact that 2 or 3 years down the line Bowe is going to want a new contract and we'll have 2 WRs that are earning upwards of $80 million.

This makes no sense. So we shouldn't sign someone because they are perceived to be too loud? Is Bowe really quiet?

I too don't believe it's never gonna happen. But if it could, I look at it this way.

Next year's draft comes and it's the 3rd round, if we could be guaranteed a pro bowl quality WR with that 3rd round pick , would you use it ? Of course, so why not trade it for the same thing ?

But I really think the cards will be after a 1st rounder for him, and we need that pick for other spots.

It would be hard to get rid of our 1st next year, due to uneasy rest at QB play.

Even though nexts years QB class is extremely week, it would be a big gamble to go get a Top Flight WR and only to have Croyle bomb in our faces... but by geting Boldin, then teams would have to respect Croyle.....

Kind of a Catch 22.

He's a PROVEN commodity, he's still in the prime of his career for quite some time...

Agree, Boldin would be a huge addition to this team for the next 6-7 years. It would be nuts not to at least attempt a trade..

So what we give a first? That means we cant get a QB next year in the draft. So we play one more year with Croyle and if he sucks, then Herm and Croyle are gone along with Carl.. Then a real HC and a new GM could come in and make this team by getting a QB.

Seems a win win to me.

Meh. I don't think the draft is the only way to get a QB...

Sure, I'd love to have that QB of the future that only comes from the draft, but it's more of a toss-up these days to what you're going to get real high in the draft...you might land a Carson Palmer...but you'll probably end up with an Alex Smith, Tim Couch...or maybe you'll get lucky and get a decent QB like Philip Rivers...

Or you could just take the Bill Parcells approach and sign a Jeff Garcia, an established veteran QB, who can manage games and get you to a Super Bowl if the pieces are there...

If Croyle doesn't work out, I fear for this franchise...because drafting a top 10 QB that doesn't work out means this franchise will be set back another 5 years...

So needless to say, I'm rolling the dice on Croyle and PRAYING he turns out to be at least as good as Philip Rivers.

Depends on the price, really. We will be picking at the top of each round next year so I would not even consider a 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Of course, I'm a miser when it comes to draft picks. I would never have traded a 1st for Green and lament even what most consider decent trades like the 2nd for Surtain.

In any case, I very much doubt that this happens. We are all very happy with Bowe and the braintrust (ha!) is probably content to look elsewhere for a WR.

DaneMcCloud
08-20-2008, 11:11 AM
Personally, I think this is made up nonsense by local talk radio shows trying to get ratings. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on any football site. Typical KK bullshit.

That being said, I absolutely think this would be a mistake for the Chiefs. Boldin is a #2 in Arizona and he'd likely be a #2 in KC. The Chiefs appear to have the makings of an outstanding receiving corp, the likes of which we've never had in KC. Bowe, Franklin and Price could anchor this team for the next 5 years and if the scouting continues to be as good, there's no reason that more talented players will be added next year.

Furthermore, this is team that is in desperate need of its draft picks. There's been no final decision at QB (a QB who remains an injury question week in and week out), OLB, MLB, DE, RT, RG, backup QB are pretty much an absolute must in either the draft or free agency. This team needs depth at every position so that the special teams drastically improve and so there's little dropoff when injuries occur (i.e. Albert-Taylor).

If this were 2009 and 85% of the team was set for the next 5 years, I'd feel differently. But there are just way too many holes that need to be addressed before the Chiefs can callously trade away very important draft choices while in a rebuilding mode.

But he's a stud WR and it'd be a huge get to nab him.


Agreed it would be hard to give up a top 10 pick for him.. now a top 10 second rounder and a 4th would be okay with me...

but I want that Top 5 pick we are going to get next year!

The 1st for Green ended up in very good QB production and 81 straight starts...I think we got our money's worth on that one...I think the Rams got Damion Lewis with that pick or something anyways...yeah, I know, Damion who?

Green was to become a free-agent the very next year. We could have picked up Collins in free-agency that year, drafted Duece McAllister and gotten Green for free the next year. Apparently, Dick convinced Carl that we couldn't wait a year because we needed Green to start teaching C. Thomas and Snoop Minnis the offense. Yeah, that was important :rolleyes:. Bad trade, IMO.

Meh. I don't think the draft is the only way to get a QB...

Sure, I'd love to have that QB of the future that only comes from the draft, but it's more of a toss-up these days to what you're going to get real high in the draft...you might land a Carson Palmer...but you'll probably end up with an Alex Smith, Tim Couch...or maybe you'll get lucky and get a decent QB like Philip Rivers...

Or you could just take the Bill Parcells approach and sign a Jeff Garcia, an established veteran QB, who can manage games and get you to a Super Bowl if the pieces are there...

If Croyle doesn't work out, I fear for this franchise...because drafting a top 10 QB that doesn't work out means this franchise will be set back another 5 years...

So needless to say, I'm rolling the dice on Croyle and PRAYING he turns out to be at least as good as Philip Rivers.
We've done that forever. Hasn't worked

If this team were absolutely set at QB, RG, RT, MLB and OLB, I'd tend to agree.

But there's a very good chance that the Chiefs will be picking in the Top 5 this season (and most certainly, Top 10). This team has far too many holes at this point to trade a second round pick for a receiver.

Especially since it has yet to be proven that the QB make it through the season.

This is just made up hypotheitcals to generate preseason talk and long internet threads (which I read completely through, by the way, so nice job).

The Cardinals are not interested in trading Boldin. Rumor is they have already turned down 1st round draft pick offers. The reason is, he still has three years left on his contract, and since ownership doesn't want to send signals it will accomodate any player that says he's unhappy after he's already signed a long term contract. Boldin has already commented publicly he will not hold out, he will play out this season, but that he is cutting off all communication outside of game planning with management and coaching staff.

In other words, Boldin knows the team holds all the cards (no pun intended), so he hopes to turn in a year where he produces at a high level so the team feels compelled to restructure next year, or he'll hold out. If he holds out now, he has no options and no means to increase his potential contract with either the Cards or another team.

That said, I would give up a third in a heartbeat, possibly with even a conditional second based on performance. Moss' situation was different, he was underperforming and most teams thought he didn't really care to be good anymore. Boldin is under a long term contract, and the Cards aren't going to submit to his demands unless they are well compensated, that is, it looks more like they got an offer they couldn't refuse rather than that they submitted to a disgruntled player. Salary cap is not an issue for us.

No, the "thought process" is that giving up the #32-35 pick for a receiver with injury history and somewhat of a malcontent isn't the right decision for a rebuilding team.

1997? Absolutely. 2003? We'd STILL be bitching about it to this day if there was an opportunity like that was passed up.

I didn't say a we'd spend a first rounder on QB in 2009. I stated that with so many holes, a first round talented QB could be there at that position, much like Drew Brees and quite possibly, Brian Brohm.

IF the Chiefs were solidified at the RT and RG spots, I'd agree with your assessment. But it's unclear whether or not Jones & McIntosh/Richardson will be able to hold their blocks long enough for Croyle to even throw a pass.

This is a trade that is more likely to benefit the Cowboys and/or Jets.

First off, there is no way, no way that Zona would do a 3rd rounder or a 2nd rounder for Boldin.

If those guys on 610 and 810 think the Chiefs could pull that off, then they should just go smoke the pipe cause that ain't happening.

If we got a 1st and 2 3rd's for JA, one of the top DE's in the game...What makes them think we coulld give only a 2nd or a 3rd for Boldin? One of the top receivers in the game!

You know what it is going to take to get Boldin? Definately a 1st...And a few other draft picks possibly a 2nd, and a 3rd.

I'd don't think the Chiefs are going to get him. I do like him, and would love to have him. He would be a huge help to the offense, and he isn't old either so he wouldn't defeat the purpose of re-building. But I must admit I do like Will Franklin. Lets give him a shot. By no means is he an Anquan Boldin. But he can develop into a solid receiver? I Like what I see from him in the pre-season thus far.

Point is, as a rebuilding team, you don't want to go into next years draft without a 1st, a 2nd or a 3rd. You guys know that. That the reason this deal ain't happening.

If the Chiefs are picking top ten next year (and certainly top five), they'll be able to draft at least four players that will have an impact in 2009.

If they choose wisely, there's no reason why the 2009 Chiefs won't compete for a playoff spot.

To me, it's a non-point. Boldin wants out of AZ because he wants a ton of money. If the Chiefs wanted to sign a guy in his prime for a lot of money they should have just kept JA.

We're going to be a conservative offense so I don't see how having Gonzo, Bowe and Boldin helps a rebuilding team. The JA trade was to try and pick up as many good prospect players as possible over the next 1-2 years. Let things shake out and THEN use your cap money to fill the positions that didn't work out.

Granted Tony is going to retire at some point, but I'm not sure how it makes sense signing Boldin now. He'd just take opportunity away from Darling, Franklin, Cottam and we need to find out which of those guys can be real players.

No. I'm serious. Why tie up more money on a receiver, when a receiver can't get the ball becuase of the following:

1. Bad QB play (Croyle, Thigpen, or Huard)
2. Bad O-Line play

No different say tying up a shitload of $ on CB's (See Law and Surtain for example) where they couldn't cover very well, becuase of their age, but also the lack of a consistent pass-rush.

The Chiefs don't need an all-world offensive line to succeed. They just need competent, athletic players.

Niswanger, Waters, Taylor & Albert fit that mold.

The problem is the right side of the line, which needs to be address in the 2009 off-season. The improvement of Barry Richardson (much like Herb Taylor's) would go a long way to speed that process along.

If 10 Super Bowls were won by a combination of undrafted free agents and 6th round draft choices, yet 8 Super Bowls were won by 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 7th round QB's combined, doesn't that tell you something?

Furthermore, I don't think there's a person alive who in hindsight, wouldn't have taken Joe Montana #1 overall in the 1979 draft. If you take away his Super Bowl wins, you're left with only 6 wins by players drafted in any round other than the 1st and 6th round.

They will stick us 8 in the box one way or another until our QB can actually beat them downfield. That was a problem last year, even though I thought the WR situation wasn't terrible last year. The QB in Damon Huard was the problem, plus combine it with the piss-poor blocking by the O-line.

Passing is set up the run is the new school. I'm fully aware of that. However, like the old school, the lineman must be able to get locked on his man, and drive his man out of the running lane to create the running game. That means that the lineman must engage his man and stay on him without getting flagged for holding, or getting blasted by a strong bull-rush or get embarrased by a speed-rushing end.

And why is Indy and NE so good then? It's becuase they have a very good O-line to perform both old-school and new-school. Of course, they both have very compent coaches, which we do not have here.

I personally think Boldin is a top flight receiver, and easily worth a 2nd rnd pick and the new contract that would come with it.

That being said, I don't feel he's a fit for this team. In fact, I don't buy into the idea of building an offense from the outside in. Boldin and Fitzgerald didn't make AZ a powerhouse, they didn't make AZ QBs look particularly more capable, and they didn't make running the ball particulalry easy for the Cards.

In fact, I'm having a hard time thinking of any great WR tandem that ever had an overwhleming effect on an otherwise mediocre offense. Maybe the Rams with Holt and Bruce, but they did have Faulk too.

Their take is that Boldin is under contract for 3 years and is going nowhere unless someone makes AZ an offer they absolutely cannot refuse. That means a first round pick plus.

Wisenhunt was on day before yesterday and acted like he had no idea there was even an issue. "Quan and I talk on the field every day and I don't see that changing".

The local sports talk guys say this is posturing by Quan to get a re-worked deal after this season. They say the Cards want another year out of him at the current price and will then evaluate his worth.

If fully healthy I'd trade a first for Boldin in a heartbeat.

He's physical, excellent pass catcher, excellent leader, excellent blocker.

The Cowboys are interested as well and probably would offer a 1 and some other player. They tried to get him during the draft i believe

Yeah, but not a first and a second like Philly is offering, according to Bad Guy.

Hmmm, WR wants more $, Carl tends to be really cheap
WR's agent is Drew Who? Carl doesn't do a great job dealing with him.


I don't really see it happening. Don't really think we need him either.

Especially if the Beagles and Cowgirls are interested, Mr. PastorMikH. I think we can safely categorize this deal as a pipe dream. Or, a big doobie nightmare, as you prefer.

I can understand the money.

But saying this team doesn't need a horse like Boldin is ridiculous.

Could we use him? Sure. But I'm liking what I see with out young WRs right now. We have several that I'm thinking are at least better than most of the projects DV had. He would push some promising players down and off the roster. I've seen a number of plays so far from the young guys that impress me - some of these guys are making better catches than some of the starters in years past. If we are truly rebuilding, I'd rather see what we have with some of these young guys we have now.

even with 2 #1's, does that give you reason to give a 1 and a 2 for a receiver?

That Moss comparison isn't a good one to use, the Raiders wanted rid of him and he has "issues" Boldin doesn't have any.

Man o man. I hate to give up a #1 for anybody right now. We have an opportunity to load up with solid, young talent this coming off-season. I don't think Herm would be willing to give up anything more than a #2 (perhaps going to a #1 contingent on production, or something like that), and rightfully so. I'd say stick to your guns and gut it out and hold your horses and shoot the dog. It's one of those hypotheticalisms anyhow. Since, between the Eagles and Cowboys demonstrated interest and Carl's tight pockets, there's very little chance this will turn into something for the Chiefs.

The Eagles have offered their first and 2nd round picks in next years draft.

No way the Chiefs go that high.

The Iggles are in win now mode. If they think the proven guy puts them in position to make a run, you do what you have to do. There's no guarantee that those picks pan out. Bolden is a can't miss WR. He's a playmaker, McNabb needs one pretty bad. I wouldn't do it, but I can see how the Eagles would be considering it.

Then that's just pathetic if you weren't being sarcastic.

Like I explained before, there is no reason for the Chiefs to be looking into Boldin for the fact that the Chiefs are NOT DESIGNED TO SET THE PASS to the run, as Mecca is pointing out, the "new school"

Here's what bothers me. People wants to buy alot of skilled positions players, yet they wonder why the skilled position players aren't earning their money? And the last thing that should be done is committing way too much money on two skilled positions (See Surtain and Law) and that was a epic failure all around.

But anyways, back to what I was saying about the skilled positions who are not performing well. Well, piss-poor line can do that to you. It doesn't matter if you are a receiver or a CB, if you don't get very good line play, your job just got more harder. And right now, IMHO, the Chiefs O-line is more of a high priority than a receiver as of this moment, becuase of the fact that we severly lack quality depth.

Okay, let's say hypothecially this trade happens. The Chiefs get Boldin and they gave Arizona their 1st and a 2nd or a 3rd, whatever.

Then the Chiefs go 4-12 again this year, and Croyle got hurt, Thigpen isn't the answer to the future. QB becomes a problem. Assuming we finish 4-12, that's more than likely a top 5 pick again, which could mean the Stafford guy from Georgia, or whoever the top QB of the 2009 NFL Draft Classs is.

I would never be cool with a team like Chiefs doing this. Their picks will be too high, and we need lots of players. I could see a team like the Eagles doing it though.

They seem to be getting some bad breaks lately. They tried to trade ahead of us to get Albert, but someone ratted them out. Now AZ won't take a 1 AND A 2??? Who did they piss off?

Yea, I don't care, he's got about a 1.5% chance if that to be as good as Boldin.

Still retarded, IMO.

Take away his injury history, and I'd be all for it as an Eagles fan.

But, much like you with Croyle, I can't expect Boldin to get through an entire 16 game season.

10-12 games per season isn't worth 2 high picks, IMO.
