Over in Seattle we are looking toward the future, our Hasselbeck-led window of opportunity closing quickly, if it hasn't already slammed shut.
This has led to a lot of talk about future QB's in Seattle. I know well the love/hate relationship Philly has had with McNabb. Personally, I've always liked him and would be happy to have him until he can no longer perform. You also seem to have found your "QB of the future" as well.... but that's where this discussion comes in.
There are really three non-Hasselbeck options for us going forward that have been discussed in the Pacific Northwest. 1) Draft a rookie, to either play right away or learn under Matt or a journeyman. 2) Go trade for a QB with upside in our system 3) find a vet who can play right away with potential to be a solid starter going forward for a while.
The first option has a debate between big names like McCoy, Clausen, Jake Locker, and the like. The second option points to you and Mr. Kevin Kolb. The third interestingly, gives us a guy you are familiar with-- Jason Campbell.
My questions for you--It has been suggested to trade for Kolb. Do you see him as being the least bit available? What would it take? Would it be worth it? Starting from scratch, is Kolb a guy you would feel comfortable rebuilding with? Do you believe he showed enough in 2 games to be worth giving a 1st round pick to pry him away?
Bottom line-- if you were in our shoes and not yours, would you rather have Kolb, any of the three college guys I listed, or Jason Campbell, and why?
Thanks Bleeding Green. I used to bleed green too, until the NBA stole my lifeblood... sigh.
