    McNabb

    People on the st louis post dispatch boards are talking about a rumor from 101.1 espn about the rams having "serious discussions" with the eagles about McNabb at the combine..

    They are saying they would love it, i would hate it. McNabb is going to be 34 by November next year, and only has a one year contract. Even if he is forced to come here...he would never re-sign with the Rams and end his career where he most likely cant win a super bowl.

    I feel like we would be giving up a pick, probably a second rounder for a one year rental. Not smart at all.

    There's no way this happens. It would go against everything we're trying to do with the team right now.

    Re: McNabb

    The only bright side to this in my mind would be that it would mean we're that much closer to drafting Suh. But yeah, giving up a 2nd rounder for a 34 y.o. right now seems like a bad idea.

    Re: McNabb

    I like the idea of trading for McNabb more than I do trading for Vick, but I wouldn't be inclined to trade the Rams' second round pick to make it happen.

    Though if I'm the Eagles, I wouldn't be inclined to accept less.

    Re: McNabb

    They really ought to rename The Combine to "Rumor-mine". Given the close ties Spags has to Philly, I wouldn't be surprised that he spent quite a bit of time talking to those guys but I doubt the content would leak. Sounds like the TB/Josh whatshisname rumor again.

    I thought Spags' comments in an nfldotcom interview at The Rumor-mine were verrrry interesting, ie his first thought when asked about how you might bring a rookie QB along was to cite how Philly did it with McNabb; easing him in while a vet held the fort. Not sayin' Spags was hinting that Donovan would now be that vet- DM certainly has more cost/value than Doug Pedersen(sp?) did back then- but it was interesting that it was the plan he chose to expound on in detail,no? And probably the fiery source of this wispy-smoked rumor.

    I am on record as being be in favor of the idea if it materialized, esp if The Rams can trade Barron for a second pick.You can take McCoy or Suh first, and a QB in the second who may need a year or more of development before he & the OL are ready for a rookie starter. McNabb has more than a year left in him,imo, by any substantiated evaluation-there just is no evidence that he is deteriorating & showed last year that he can compensate for a weaker OL with his mobility, smarts, and knowledge of a very similar system.

    I know I'm alone on this one & won't bother to debate it any more. I doubt it will happen, anyway.

    ps if you like rumors that probably mean nothing but get fan sphincters winking, how about the combine blog bit about The Rams' not having spoken to Suh at all as of Sun eve?

    Re: McNabb

    No thank you. I would rather have Mike Vick, at least he would improve our running game by his ability and by allowing SJAX to get more yards aswell.

    Really? Come on.

    I believe in giving Vick a chance at becoming a starter again but bringing in McNabb gives us an automatic solid starter at the QB position.

    Re: McNabb

    NO!

    I would rather keep Bulger.

    or

    (UFA) Chad Pennington at a real cheap price to groom QB Nul and QB LeFevour.

    Re: McNabb

    assuming they want a 2nd rounder for him, no way. too important a pick to give up for what's probably a one-year guy.

    I agree, when you look at the fact that Dez Bryant may be there in the 2nd round (since he didn't do anything to wow anyone in Indy) it would be a shame to not have a shot at getting him.

    Bryant didnt work out, but he is stil considered the number 1 WR in the draft. I very much doubt he makes it past pick 15, let alone all the way to number 33.

    Re: McNabb

    Why would Mcnabb want come here at this point in his career, unless we throw ALOT of money at him. Wouldnt he have some say in where he goes in a trade?

    Re: McNabb

    From Adam Schefter's Twitter...

    RT @SportsJerk03 Are Rams really going after McNabb? ... They are not. They haven't had a single conversation with Rams regarding McNabb.
    37 minutes ago via web

    From Bernie...

    Interesting stuff about Donovan McNabb from my colleague Bryan Burwell, who says the Rams have had “intense internal conversations with the Philadelphia Eagles about a trade” for McNabb. You can put me in the skeptical category on this one. I’d be surprised if Eagles are serious about dealing McNabb. Then again, all three of their quarterbacks (McNabb, Kevin Kolb, Michael Vick) are entering the final seasons of their contracts. Kolb isn’t going anywhere; he’s in place as Philly’s QB for the long run. So perhaps the Eagles will take a hard-line, bottom-line financial view of this and try to move McNabb’s salary. I don’t know. Again, I’d be surprised. But I find it even more difficult to believe that they’d trade McNabb to St. Louis if they do decide to move him. Given the respect and relationships that McNabb has within the organization, I think Andy Reid and the Eagles would try to place McNabb to a team that has a shot at winning now, or in the near future. Especially with a lockout looming for 2011. Now, if the Rams were willing to overpay the Eagles by giving up a premium draft pick (say, a No. 2), I could be wrong about all of this. Wouldn’t be the first time. And with that lockout on the horizon do the Rams really want to give up a great pick (or picks) for McNabb, who turns 34 in November? Like I said, interesting …

    UPDATE: Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo tells me that there have been no talks between the Rams and Eagles on McNabb, for whatever that is worth.

    I agree he's is the #1 wr but the fact he wouldn't run at the combine along with missing last season and off the field issue (which I think was kind of bogus) may have his stock on the decline. Maybe it's just wishfull thinking on my part.

    Re: McNabb

    If we can get Vick and draft Colt McCoy it would make more sense. In 2-3 years McCoy would be groomed to start. By going this route we can still get our #1 stud in Ndamukong Suh. Steven Jackson will get more opportunities as defenses will be focused on Vick. We can get back to .500 real quick and look solid for the future.
