    Out of the Box -- Eli for Clowney

    Here's an idea: what if we offered Eli in a trade to Houston for the #1 pick and Matt Schaub?

    You know what? I'd do it -- Eli may have some good seasons ahead of him, but Clowney is likely a special player that comes along only once in many years. And Schaub is good enough to win in the NFL -- he needs a change in team to clear his head.

    And I think Houston would do it -- notwithstanding their record, they're loaded with talent and someone like Eli could make them a playoff team.

    So how crazy is this idea?

    Sighs while shaking ones head usually means that person is practicing the advice all our mothers gave us so far as if one hasn't anything nice to say, to not say anything at all.

    I wouldn't trade a franchise QB for DL with a questionable motor.

    If you're not sold on Clowney, I understand -- my gut is that he is for real.

    I'm definitely not nor do I think a DL for QB swap is commensurate.

    But Eli may never be the same -- Clowney is just starting -- doesn't that shift the balance?

    Not for me. Established franchise QBs are hard to come by, potentially great defensive linemen, less so.

    The word MAY in your post says it all. Eli MAY never be the same. Clowney MAY never be a dominate DE in the NFL. He has had some questions about his dedication. Maybe they are silly but they are there and he is unproven in the NFL. I don't think you can trade a 2 time SB MVP for a rookie because of the chance that he MAY never be the same.
