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?
