I dont read too much into this... BUT, to play devils advocate imagine this scenario:
-trade ben to stl. for the 2010-1st overall AND the 2011 Rams first rounder
-bring in a vet (J.Campbell or Leftwhich), draft a qb in the 3rd (Dan Lefevlor [sp.] or Colt McCoy) and have an open camp including Dixon.
-trade the 1st over-all for th 4th-7th overall and a 2nd and 3rd or 4th
-draft Eric Berry with you new 1st pick (4-7)
-Use your new 2nd or 17th overall to trade for Nnamdi Asomugha
you've essentially made one of the sickest defenses ever, you have a few viable resources at qb to "manage" the way Ben did early. Worse comes to worst, even if we go 8-8, the rams are a six win team at best with Ben (after a 2-4 game suspension from godell) we'll have 2 top 10-12 picks in 2011. Get your QB there...
I dont want Ben to get traded... but what would YOU do as Kevin Colbert if you had to trade Ben for the above stated draft picks???
