Atlanta trying to trade for Abraham

I have a feeling that the Jets are not going to be stupid in this process, and I'm sure they will get a lot for abe. They won't settle for just shaub, and if they did manage to get shaub and the falcons 2nd round pick, I'd jump for joy.

Last time we saw the Vikings, it wasn't their offense that sucked the ass.

They'd be foolish not to work on that D.

If they're not willing to improve the defense because they're trying to circumvent issues with Micheal Vick, then they've got bigger issues.
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.

The guy has been in the league for a few years now, has some starts under his belt, and his just as much potential as any rookie QB coming into the league. I would argue that Schaud has more potential than an untested rookie like Leinhart.

I would contest that notion. Schaub has looked like a better passer than Vick in ATLs offense, so what? Most passers in the NFL (2nd string even) are better pure passers than Vick. Forget all the talk about Vick's strong arm, his accuracy is horrible, and it is not the fault of the WRs he throws to. Schaub makes for a great backup, and a very low caliber starter in the NFL. He is vastly overrated IMO, and in no way warrants a first round pick, and probably not a second. The Jets would be fools to give up a lot for Schaub, but unfortunately I can see something like this happening.

Atlanta should go for it all and trade Vick and their #1 for Abraham and the Jets #1. Then they'd improve their D with Abe and their pick and improve the O by ridding themselves of erratic Vick.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Schaub is OVER-RATED...

Someone explain to me how a QB with less than 5 career starts and less than a 50.0% pass completion percentage is considered a 1st round talent?

Abraham > Schaub by a mile.

If the Birdies were smart, they'd trade Schaub for Abraham in a heartbeat.

Schaub reminds me of A.J. Feely, a QB who played well in a couple of games and overnight got starter status.
