To my fellow Phinsider followers, will some of you please stop the rumors of Jake Long being traded??!?? He is not and will not go anywhere. He was our first overall pick out of 256 collegiate players in the 2008 NFL draft. In 4 years he has 4 pro bowls appearances and 2 all pro selections and could be headed to a 3rd. He is the best player this franchise has had since Dan Marino and Ricky Williams.
Its not worth giving up a hall of fame left tackle for an unproven QB, alright??!? If you give up unprovern players in the form picks for the right to move up and select an unproven QB you can add solid/decent NFL talent but never a proven hall of famer. Listen guys we are going to get our qb alright and were not going to have to give up our superstar left tackle. We simply can't afford to.
What did Couch, Carr, Smith and so many other great college QB's not have when they came out? An OFFENSIVE LINE/LEFT TACKLE! Jake long is going to be a Phin for 8-10 more years and he will be the highest paid left tackle in football by the end of 2012. Thank you and please stop these dumb "trade long scenarios" its not gonna happen, but tthats just me i wonder how you guys feel, let me know in the poll below.
