    So we traded Brandon Marshall for the 60th best rated player in the draft?

    Not counting next year, but this year, does Marshall's trade command the Bears 60th-80th overall pick in the 3rd round?

    I'm not sure where the Bears fall overall in the 3rd, but who would you take with that pick, and what are his chances of contributing to the Dolphins this season?

    None. We get 1 quality pick a draft and always seem to fail 2nd & 3rd round :-/

    We traded him to:

    1.Clear Cap Space

    2.Avoid a suspended player stuck on the team without getting anything out of him.

    We get the 3rd round pick plus the savings in cap money that signed Solai. So Solai and 3rd round pick this year and next year is better then Marshall.

    I'm sorry but even if Marshall is suspended 6 games that's no reason to give him away for peanuts.

    They couldn't even muster a 3rd this year and a 2nd next year?

    We traded him for two picks......... you then use the picks to your liking. A pick doesnt always equal a player. It's just a chip of certain value, right ?

    Sure, what you do with the picks, and how well it pays off is all that matters..... this trade consists of getting picks for a player. Using the picks is a seperate transaction.

    Theres a lot of ways to twist it. For example..... we traded two 2nds for Marshall, got two 1,000 yard seasons out of him, and than sold him for two 3rd rounders just before the transmission crapped out. Talk about a steal there. Also consider how the value of picks has gone up since then, with the new CBA. I could keep going.
    We move Marshall for all the right reasons, miss out on ole' manning.. then when they dont overpay a backup qb : it's the last straw and jokers are protesting outside the stadium ! All brainwashed by the media. There's no pressure from within the walls of the office, it's all from the uneducated fanbase, and that's why a movement was made to inform the fans of what's going on, because all they had to go off of was the media.

    1. We could potentially find a starter quality WR with that 3rd round pick.

    2. Good chance Marshall sits out part of 2012 as well.

    3. Philbin/New QB get to avoid the troubles of a diva WR.

    4. Saved $5 million towards the cap this year and $10 million the next two and were able to resign Soliai.

    Just a few reason why Marshall was traded.


    - Hall of Fame Safety Rod Woodson on Dan Marino playing in today's NFL:
    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
    "If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."

    Didn't say I agreed with it, just said the reasons why Miami made the trade.

    But...that's where all of our "Next Marino" QBs have come from. How is this possible?
