    Vikings get Fonoti from Chargers

    Couldn't find an NFL.com link, I guess it wasn't as important as the third string QB swap.

    Re: Trade Deadline - All Trades

    Apparently the Bucs may not have enough confidence in Simms now that Griese is done for the season. I like Rattay. Even if it isn't about having confidence in Simms, they are contenders and it was a good move to have a backup incase Simms goes down.

    AJ Feely???? Are they going to get rid of Brees or Rivers.
    I heard some saying that they may deal Rivers???
    If they make the palyoffs again with Brees, how can you get rid of him. He has command of the team.

    Some that I know that are closer to the SD situation say that they LOVE Rivers and will probably try to think of any way they can to have him be the starter next season ... will be much tougher to do now that Brees is playing well with weapons.

    The fans or the organization love Rivers, or both?

    I guess you could have a Tom Brady situation, but I would see the fans revolting at first.

    I think the Dolphins got a pretty decent QB in Cleo Lemon. I have only seen him in the preseason and he looked pretty impressive.

    The poor Jets, I bet they wish that they had the money to go after a Rattay, they don't and can't.

    The salary cap is probably why we don't see very many trades at the deadline.

    Only a few teams had the need and the luxury to be able to do it.

    Vikes and the Bucs

    I just heard the Bucs say that Rattay is the 3rd string QB. I don't think that is the intention, I wouldn't be surprised if he is listed as the 2nd QB next week and after that, who knows. It all depends on how Simms plays in the next 2 weeks.

    lemon can dang throw that ball far, and he can move around. he may be a starter in miami in due time.

    The organization ... and that is ALL the higher ups from owners to presidents to GMs ... all but the coach, Shotty seems to be a Brees man, at least publicly and to most press peeps. This could be a major revolt by players and coach in the offseason if they aer pressured into Rivers.
    Most scouts right now say that Rivers will be an absolute stud at QB wherever he is next season, and most think that if he takes the reigns in SD with Gates, LT and him around for years to come they could be the next Pats.
    Just stuff I have heard from a reliable source on the grapevine. Bottom line, both of these guys will be starting in the NFL next season.

    Well, that is a huge gamble. Anyone with LT and Gates would be fine at QB. Players get paid to play, you would hope their desire to win overcomes them not to revolt. Coach might resign??? That would not be a vote of confidence. Schotty should stay.

    I just don't know how you throw "the Rivers Wrench" into a perfectly running machine.

    Re: Trade Deadline - All Trades

    the chargers trade also means that rivers is gone in the offseason. now they have an experinced backup at 3rd string that should be a 2nd string. i dont think they want aj is just hold a clipboard for the rest of his career, and i dont think aj would want that either.
    they cant get rid of brees the way he is playing. he is doing a great job with this chargers team who i still dont believe is that good.
    trading rivers for a draft pick where they can draft a good safety or anything to help their secondary would be helpful to the team. right now rivers has no value to the team as he is just sitting on the bench doing nothing.
