Albert strikes me as someone who'll pull a "Haynesworth" taking his foot off the gas once the Brink$ Truck makes its deposit. He's better than average, wants to be paid like he's considerably better than average and as someone who's fought a bad back sporadically for years, that's body area with the memory of an elephant. The fact remains that the team that knew him best other than using him as trade fodder, would rather trust an unproven rookie than him. I'd be fine with dealing the other Marshall 3rd but in this draft class, absolutely not our first second.
Like Kenny Rodgers sang: "you gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold em" I wish I could send that song to Ireland.
Wisdom from a "QB Whisperer::
"No we have our FRANCHISE QB and I want to keep him rather than get 2 guys who may or may not be productive NFL players.
Palmer's situation is different and if I had my choice between Palmer and buttfumble, I'd take buttfumble"
