I've never posted here before, nor am I even a Lions fan. But I was over at the Cardinals website (not a cards fan either), and got caught up in the discussion of Warner resigning. I argued that they essentially chose Warner over Leinart, in that Leinart will be 28 years old and his contract will expire by the time Warner's does, and that if he doesn't play a down of meaningful football between now and then he could stand to lose tens of millions of dollars and a boatload of career stats. Now, it was pointed out that you guys have 2 first round picks, but the thought there is that you would be unwilling to trade your 20th overall pick for him without taking a nice pick back. I think that seems absurd. I think he's a serious upgrade to any of the QBs in the draft. You would get to choose a franchise tackle and be able to pick up a quarterback who can start from day 1 and probably continue to do so for a long time. Of course no one has seen the kid play except for 1/2 a season his second year in the league as a part time starter, and he didn't look that impressive. The coach chose the best quarterback in the league last year over him, and that looked bad on him, despite the play of Warner. So the percetion is that you wouldn't do it straight up for your #20 pick. Am I way off in responding with 'They would in a heartbeat'?
Would you trade your #20 pick in the draft for Matt Leinart?
