    Re: The trade for bollinger

    I'm going to have to go with both of those trades went bad, but not Herschel Walker bad.

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    In hind sight, the Mosely trade looks like a bad trade.

    I didn't like it when it happened.
    To me, BB never showed enough promise to be an emerging QB.
    It was simply done to make sure we had a back up last season.
    TJ had that knee problem if I am not mistaken.

    If you thought the CJ had talent, then it was a bad trade from the start.
    If you didn't think much of him, then it was a good move to get a back up.

    I always questioned the trade from day one, as I did the Baskett for McMullen one.

    But you have to look at it at the time of the trade, what are needs were then & where did you have surplus to make that trade.

    It doesn't always work out.
    Yeah, I should have bought that MasterCard (MA) stock when it was $40 and sold it when it was $160+.

    Mosely is no loss.
    We didn't get anything of value in return but this guy is not going to do much once real games are played.
    He couldn't earn playing time on this team and when he did get in, he looked terrible- see the game at Detroit his rookie year.

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    I kinda liked what i saw out of bollinger... not great but steady. if he has a chance he could become decent somewhere. maybe not worth mosley but definately not as bad as people seem to think

    In the last preseason game the Jets played, Mosley was in the face of Philly's QBs all night. He is gonna be a great DT, and we gave him up.

    It was a downright bad trade.

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    If we would have kept Mosely, we might not have drafted someone like Robison...so it all worked out for the best anyway,
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    Good point Caj

    I think CJ will be a solid NFL DT

    But I think we will draft one semi-high next year and he will end up being pretty solid next to K-will for years to come
