Brooks Bollinger Trade

6 posts in this topic

Well it looks like Mcmahon is getting the boot now they traded for Brooks. I like the deal as long as they didn't give up a high draft which i don't think they would of. Whats everyone else think with the trade?

I agree as long as they don't give up a real high pick. He didn't do a whole lot when he had the chance to start last year with the jets but he was also on a horrible team.

Wonder if they could have gotten him for free after the Jets cut him??

The Jets may not win a game this season. And they're having a preseason fire sale on quarterbacks.

I do not like the trade deal. I like the trade, however, I think it should have been an even swap, at worst. Though C.J. was a rookie last year, he did not play like one. C.J. has proven himself far more than Brooks in the NFL. I think the Jets should have given US a draft choice. Unfortunately, the Vikes did not consult me prior to the the completion of the trade.

KFAN talked a little on this trade this morning. I believe it was on Morris's show. Sounded like both men would have ended up being the odd man out come cut day.

Yea, both would have ended up on the cutting block but our brain trust thought it best to unload a draft pick too. I guess if it's a 6th or 7th round pick you can't complain too much.

How does one tell what a conditional draft choice becomes anyways?

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
