Sure he's a bit of a malcontent, but he has loads of talent. SD needs to sign a QB that can actually deliver the ball to Boston. They already missed out on Brunell and Garcia.....now it looks like they're going to shoot themselves in the foot by trading Boston for a third round pick or some "magic" beans, whichever offer comes in first.


Yup. Boston's numbers skyrocketed when Flutie took over at the QB position. Coincidence? I think not. He'd definitely be a good signing for Philadelphia or Miami (but we know they don't sign anyone. :-b ).


except for Jevon Kearse of course. lol.

but fantasy wise if he went anywhere with a good Qb (philly- yes. mimai- no)then he could easily be a top 5 fantasy reciever. or if San Diego brought in someone like Kitna to get the job done. Though I think Cinci would be foolish to let him go anywhere and not have a plan B to Carson Palmer.

Hey now! McNabb only throws them that low because as everyone in Philly has noticed Chad Lewis can't seem to hold onto the ball if it's above his waist. ;-)

Don't count on much from Miami's offense, even with Boston. Truth is that there O-line is terrible and took a huge leap backwars this offseason. As a phins fan, it troubles me that Miami doesnt realize this. Management thinks that with a good QB, RB, and wide receiver, you dont need a line. All you have to do is look north to Buffalo's offense to realize that won't get you far. As for the trade, I don't see anyone trading that kind of talent for a 3rd round pick. Miami would surely be outbid.

its not like san diego is going to cut him so there is no way that he would take any pay cut IMO.

Boston is very talented. His numbers suffered last season because 1) Martyball meant 1 and 10=run, 2 and 9=run, 3 and 8=pass, incomplete. and 2) D. Brees can't find Boston on a 3rd and 8, He sucks that bad.

Put Boston on a team that is pass-oriented with an accurate QB, and his numbers would skyrocket him to a top 5 reciever.

Oh yeah, SD was TERRIBLE at running the ball this season :-?

What I meant was, that when they were in 3rd and long, they couldn't convert. I didn't mean that they couldn't run the ball.
Probably the reason why Boston's weren't that good IS because they were so successful running the ball.

There was a lot of questionable playcalling going on. As talented as LT is, he wasn't nearly as consistent as some owners would've liked (especially the first half of the season). LT should be right up there with Ahman Green and Priest Holmes when it comes to getting 15-20 points almost every Sunday.
