i wouldn't mind trading for something. Don't forget IF cassel happens to get hurt there is still a chance Croyle would stay healthy...and IF our QBs got hurt wouldn't that mean we should stock up on linemen??
I love Thigpen, but if he could land us a draft pick that ends up being a starting offensive lineman for the next 5 or 10 years, there's no doubt in my mind that he should be traded.
trade thigpen to washington for devin thomas.win win
Sign Jerame tuman as a 3rd TE
Sign Lavelle Hawkins when cut from Titans
Trade Mcbride, Sign Travis Laboy
or trade thigpen for a 3, trade a 2 and the 3 for Boldin, then sign Tuman, trade mcbride and sign laboy.
then just check the FA wire for OL, they got a gem potentially from Miami. For a 6th. Cassel came for a 2nd, to get a 3 for thigpen would be great...and could lead to Boldin...
but I have no problem making a trade for a thomas or someone like that who needs a change in scenary., this team needs help in a lot of places.
Thigpen did what he could with piss. What Croyle couldnt do.
Thig didnt lose those games JM! The team did. Just like a TG(or any quality player) didnt lose the games. Thig did what he could, which includes having an elite passer rating in the NFL (after he regained the starter job).
I dont want anything to happen to Cassell, heaven forbid. But I dont want to have to admit the season is over if he does. Thig is the man who CAN do it if it comes to the playoffs!
