Arizona Cardinals: The Paxton Lynch Possibility

https://raisingzona.com/2017/04/22/arizona-cardinals-paxton-lynch-possibility/



With rumors swirling, will the Arizona Cardinals attempt to trade for Paxton Lynch?

Recently I have seen many Instagram and Twitter posts about a possible trade between the Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos. While I am not sure of the credibility of these rumors, it was interesting enough to stir up conversations between fans and a lot of thought from myself.

The supposed trade consists of the Cardinals trading their 13th overall draft choice to Denver for Paxton Lynch and a third-rounder. This trade would give Denver a chance to land Christian McCaffrey, and it would give Arizona another third round choice that Keim and Arians love (along with a future QB).

This trade makes sense on paper, but a lot would need to happen to make Keim pull the trigger. First, both teams would have to be interested. Whatever quarterback, or overall player, the Cardinals wanted would have to already be off the board.

Man, that's dumb. You hear the most idiotic stories this time of year, but that one was da ultra dumb. They should give up on Paxton Lynch before even figuring out if he can be a franchise QB? And if Denver was willing to walk away from their 1st round pick of a year ago, whom they traded up to get, why would Arizona want him that badly?

Wouldn't that be pretty damning evidence that Paxton was a bust if Denver were willing to give up on him so soon? Wouldn't that make you more likely NOT to want to trade for him if you're the Cardinals?

If AZ thinks they need a QB that badly, why not draft DeShaun Watson at #13? Why take a risk on a guy some other team has already given up on?

None of that makes the remotest sense. Denver isn't giving up on Paxton before they can even develop him and see if he could be a long term answer at QB!

According to a source that has direct access to coach Arians:


The Cardinals can light up scoreboards with Palmer behind center, but the team has to address the future of the position.

Arizona has eight picks in this year’s draft, including the No. 13 overall pick. Arians believes there are five or six quarterbacks in this draft that have the potential to become starters, but Keim said the Cardinals won’t take a quarterback unless a player they’ve identified as a viable successor to Palmer is on the board.

“When you get into a situation where you panic and force the pick, it will set us back from an organizational standpoint four or five years,” Keim said.

I guess the same would apply if the Cards, &/or Elway, wouldn't wanting to panic and force a bad trade.

Perhaps if there was any other option at QB besides Siemian it's an interesting proposition, but as far as I'm concerned, Siemian is a placeholder. He's not the future franchise QB of the Broncos. You either have a franchise QB or you need one. Maybe Lynch is that guy, maybe not, but I'm pretty darned confident that Siemian is not, nor will he ever be, a franchise QB in the NFL.

Btw, if the Cards trade for Paxton Lynch what does that do to their credibility?

On the other hand, if the Cards would rather have Lynch than Watson why wouldn't the team that already invested a 1st and a 3rd? Or, for that matter, why wouldn't any other QB-needy team, like say...the Jets at 8? Or the Browns at 1?

If the Broncos really wanna make sure they get McCaffrey they better go all Mike Ditka and eliminate any chance of losing him to another (galactically stupid) team.

I didnt read through the thread yet so i can only guess as to how the conversations have gone but my initial post is like this,


Much like Tebow, you dont draft a guy and then not allow him to play to see at least what he has. Obviously, if the rumors are true and Paxton's work ethic are horrible than that can change the attitude of the FO to try and off load him. But, then what happens is this becomes a black mark for Elway and company because it means you didnt do your homework and research before drafting the guy to begin with. But if you were sold on him as your #1 pick than you should at the very least see what he can do on the field (for more than 2 games). Dont know how serious this trade rumor is but i would be very surprised if it was actually true, and if it is it means Paxton was a massively wasted pick for us.

McCaffery is a playmaker though, not your ordinary RB. He can bring a lot to the table, a lot more (at this stage) than a first round QB sitting on the bench and unable to unseat the backup QB. IMO

Paxton was a guy that needed to sit for a year coming out of college. He was a project with a huge upside. He was a spread QB who needed to work on his footwork. Not only did he do that, but he hired a private coach in the offseason to work on mechanics and footwork on his own. He needs another year to evaluate what kind of QB he really is. I think he starts this year. If not, then it's time to talk about trading him. Had he stayed in college, he'd more than likely be the consensus #1 pick in this draft.

If you're convinced Trevor is going to be the man over Lynch, then I can see Elway parting ways with him but only for the Cards pick straight up.

Arians did have a lot of interest in Lynch last year to be Palmer's successor, then the BRONCOS moved up to get him. I believe that, and the so-called Elway infatuation for CMac, makes for a good rumor mill.

I doubt we even consider such a trade, but can you imagine the sheer pandemonium around here if it happened. People would lose their minds :D It'd be fun to see happen live.

This is basically fan speculation. I can see the logic in it, but it's just fan talk with no substance.

Besides, once we made that trade, we'd have to package the two firsts together to move up EVEN FURTHER to get Mini-Mac because he'll be gone by the panthers if not sooner.

But we could grab Watson and an LT to block for him so...

You could do great things with a 12 and a 20. . as long as it's not using both to reach for a single player.... You could get two of these guys...Reddick, Foster, Bolles, Peppers, Ross, Howard, Njoku, McDowell, Davis, McCaf. . what a freaking move that would be.

Flipping last years #26 for this years #12 is great value. Broncos would do it in a heartbeat. Especially with a QB situation that demands split reps and distraction.

What's the old saying? If you have two QB's, you have no QB's. A QB competition is rarely a good thing, it's better to have it resolved and have one clear-cut starter getting all of the reps and a backup. I agree that there is a hell of a lot we can do with those two picks, I just know we are enamored with C-Mac (heck, I am too)

Unless he falls past the Panthers, we won't likely see him in orange and blue. There are rumors that the Jags want him as the first RB off the board at #4.

McCaffery is a playmaker though, not your ordinary RB. He can bring a lot to the table, a lot more (at this stage) than a first round QB sitting on the bench and unable to unseat the backup QB. IMO

I look at mccaffery as a runner mid to low 2nd round ability. Add his receiving ability and he is now high to mid 2nd round ability. Add in his return ability and now he has 1st round potential.

A gadget RB is hillman. Who has speed but is a 3rd down back. He has be used for special offensive plays here and there.

McCaffery is an offensive weapon. He can be split out to slot. Line in back field. He can be played on slow LB. He is a gem for a good OC. Imagine what belicheat would do with him. He would be a scarier version of wes welker because you must account for him at all times and he can sneak out of backfield.

And he can fill the returner hole.

I think that's exactly what it is honestly. This draft is so mediocre across the board. There are a few elite players peppered throughout the draft, but for the most part, there is no depth to the draft, it's all high end talent, no middle or late talent. There is a big drop off from the guys who are going early to even the guys who are going in the 2nd or 3rd round. Just no depth in this draft at all and the "high end" guys probably would be 2nd or 3rd rounders in most normal drafts.

And this is when I tune out forums, social media, and media outlets on tv until draft day lol, you start hearing the dumbest trade ideas ever around this time. The Broncos are going to trade there most talented quarterback, for a RB and pretty much stick themselves with Trevor the rest of the way in a offense that does not even fit Trevor skill set.

See you guy's on draft day! I am so looking forward to it, but I have no desire for all the crazy trade talk that's obviously coming. What would a QB guy like Arians want with a QB with a poor work ethic that they would give up #13 for him? Smh

You trade up in the first to draft a QB and then during the off season while he's working his ass off you deem his work ethic an issue? Does thjs even make a ounce of sense? Do you know how much of a joke Elway would look like as a GM? It's almost disrespectful to entertain these kind of BS stories because it makes elway and company look dumb.

How do you know he's "working his ass off"? I have heard reports that he's never first in first out like other people. Unless you are physically in Dove Valley watching it, you have no more idea than I do. It's all speculation based off what is being reported and there are a lot more negative reports about his work ethics than there are positive ones.

It's all speculation, but if the reports of poor work ethic are true then it's not disrespectful at all. You are taking a late first rounder from last year and turning it into a early first this year. Again, that's only if the reports of work ethic are true and I have no idea if they are.

I think you are taking this speculation just a tad bit too personally and just need to take a step back man.

People have confirmed, or publicly stated, that he is working his ass off. That should mean something. The accounts of him not working hard were unsourced - that doesn't mean they're wrong as who is going to throw him under the bus- and that does deserve some thought, too.

Freyaka
04-24-2017, 03:19 PM
It's all speculation both ways, you are right, there are some people who have spoke up publicly, that means something. Regardless...It's all discussion, we are on a discussion board. There is nothing "disrespectful" about entertaining a discussion during the days leading up to the draft. Nothing in this thread warrants panties being bunched.

It's all just idle talk while we wait for the action to begin and has zero impact on what will really happen.

I personally doubt we trade Lynch, but it's not the stupidest idea in the world IF the FO doesn't think he's the guy. If they are set on TS (which again...is totally up in the air) then you try and get something out of Lynch while his stock is at its highest (now) rather than waiting 2-3 years when he's worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick because he never lived up to his potential.

Again, it's all just discussion between fans while we wait for the real thing to take place.

King87
04-24-2017, 03:21 PM

I'm not writing him off either, I'm just saying it's not preposterous to think it could happen. Regardless, it isn't likely either. Until more concrete talk starts coming (for example someone like Schefter, kizla, ect... talking about it) it's just some fan saying "hey guys, what do you think of this trade"

It's not likely, it's fun to talk about what ifs in the offseason. It's for sure nothing to get riled up and upset about as if we just insulted Elway's dog or something.

He averaged 400 offensive yards and 2 touchdowns in his first fives seasons with the Chargers. If the Broncos had drafted that in the first round people would be screaming bloody murder. Moreno was light years better than that and everyone hates him. His entire career he's averaged 700 offensive yards per season.

He reinvented himself later on in his career and has been productive, but he wasn't a first round pick and isn't a first round pick if you had to do it again.

I don't agree with this, just based on the NFL eye test. I could care less about the stats, but they make the case rock solid.

Really? Sproles was a fourth round draft pick. That's the type of place I'd expect to find a player like that. You don't want to take return specialists in the first round. I'm not saying McCaffrey is a return specialist, I don't think he is, and I think he's a better player than Sproles. I'm just surprised you would think Sproles is a first-round type player.

It's so boom-or-bust developing and demonstrating those skills at NFL level--location independent playmaking. I just remember hearing so many times during Broncos games the commentator would say, pre-snap, "Sproles in the backfield," and so on. Then it's GG because mismatch + playmaker. In hindsight you draft him in the first because he proved to be that rare, defensive-coordinator-goes-apoplectic dude like DeSean, McCoy, Hill, Westbrook, and so on. All them dudes went later than 1st round, but seems like errbody wants one of 'em, if we're honest about it. So maybe we think CMac is really likely to be one of those guys, whereas it was really low probability for those other dudes. You just didn't know . . . because college football.

I certainly think if you went and re-drafted the 2005 class, he'd be higher than where he was drafted. I just think I'd be hard-pressed to say he was a first-round player even then.

McCaffery is a playmaker though, not your ordinary RB. He can bring a lot to the table, a lot more (at this stage) than a first round QB sitting on the bench and unable to unseat the backup QB. IMO

How does the cost suit you? Forget the 20th pick, this trade scenario is Basically spending Two 1's and Two 2's on a 5-11/200 luxury?

Btw, there's playmakers like David Njoku too, won't cost four core starters either.

He averaged 400 offensive yards and 2 touchdowns in his first fives seasons with the Chargers. If the Broncos had drafted that in the first round people would be screaming bloody murder. Moreno was light years better than that and everyone hates him. His entire career he's averaged 700 offensive yards per season.

He reinvented himself later on in his career and has been productive, but he wasn't a first round pick and isn't a first round pick if you had to do it again.

That's not his fault, that's the chargers fault for being too stupid to use him properly, his numbers would be even higher if he'd been properly utilized his entire career.

Well Sproles sat behind Michael Turner and was only used as a third down back for sometime. We know he he turned into one of the more dynamic players in the league. Ergo, given the opporunity, he probably makes it. Compare his production to a lot of other first rounders and he looks that much better, too. It's not an unfair thought to say he'd be a true first rounder.

How do you know he's "working his ass off"? I have heard reports that he's never first in first out like other people. Unless you are physically in Dove Valley watching it, you have no more idea than I do. It's all speculation based off what is being reported and there are a lot more negative reports about his work ethics than there are positive ones.

It's all speculation, but if the reports of poor work ethic are true then it's not disrespectful at all. You are taking a late first rounder from last year and turning it into a early first this year. Again, that's only if the reports of work ethic are true and I have no idea if they are.

I think you are taking this speculation just a tad bit too personally and just need to take a step back man.

He's been first in last out since off season work outs started this year, and he's been working with a qb coach since the season ended. Something tells me you elect to ignore the obvious facts but yet entertain dumb made up articles. You actually posted an article from some Dallas cowboy beat writer because it was bashing lynch didn't you? Mr.clickbait.

Are you high?

I'm open to someone being high on Robinson, but what you presented isn't persuasive to anyone but you. You've essentially argued that 'well for most of the snaps he didn't give up anything' so he won.

I rush against you 40 times. I get one sack. I do that each game. I get 16 sacks a game. I'm going to be on Pro Bowl and All Pro rosters. That's literally if I only get a sack a game. That's what you're not getting - most pass rushers don't 'produce' a bunch of stats a game. That's now how it works.

And FFS Freyaka and I have been back and forth on Lynch and TS a billion times. Of course it's not personal. You just happen to post a lot like both Yashala and Lynch12.

He can grow and if he does, I just want a good QB, no matter what QB that is.

I'm not stuck on one player being the future, whatever happens happens.

Back when you were Lynch12 (because come on...you obviously were) I took an extremely anti-Paxton stance not because I had anything against Paxton, but to get under your skin because lets face it, you were an abrasive little guy and it was fun.

Not only is this right, but Cam Robinson is projected as a G by a lot of NFL scouts. Apparently none of the projected first round OL are making teams wildly enthusiastic.

Normally, at least a couple of these guys would be gone by #10-12. Not this year. Nobody in the top 10 is considering a T, and some of those teams would LOVE a LT. There just isn't a guy who's a very good prospect.

Some people think Ryan Ramczyk or Bolles is "worthy of a 1st round pick." What that means is meh, maybe that guy develops into a starter, but does NOT project as an elite LT prospect. Because if he did, the guy would be drafted in the top 10.

Money talks and B.S. walks in the NFL. People can say anything they want, but look where these guys are drafted and you know - they are not regarded as great prospects or none of them would be available at #20.
And all of them may be there.

Another shit spread QB at 20 and two starters for a gadget RB? That's even more stupid, no offense.

But wait...lemme guess...Watson has the "It factor"?

Yup.

Man, that's dumb. You hear the most idiotic stories this time of year, but that one was da ultra dumb. They should give up on Paxton Lynch before even figuring out if he can be a franchise QB? And if Denver was willing to walk away from their 1st round pick of a year ago, whom they traded up to get, why would Arizona want him that badly?

Wouldn't that be pretty damning evidence that Paxton was a bust if Denver were willing to give up on him so soon? Wouldn't that make you more likely NOT to want to trade for him if you're the Cardinals?

If AZ thinks they need a QB that badly, why not draft DeShaun Watson at #13? Why take a risk on a guy some other team has already given up on?

None of that makes the remotest sense. Denver isn't giving up on Paxton before they can even develop him and see if he could be a long term answer at QB!

Is there even a small hint that Lynch is anything? Just one thing. What?

Its been two years. He has shown NOTHING, and when I mean nothing, I mean NOTHING.

What are you seeing that I am not? Just wondering. To say we don't know as fans, well we know something. That is that he has shown NOTHING. Not to two coaching staffs. Not in front of any fans that have attended training camps. Not in any preseason game. Not in any TC in front of any reporters and not in any game he was given playing time in regular season games this season or last season. NOTHING.

Am I wrong here?

Oh, and this one game won't be near enough. Even if he shows SOMETHING. In fact, I am hoping he does not give us this crap false sense of hope by looking good against a team playing for nothing. That will then give certain fans this notion that Lynch could be something in this league.

This team needs whole sale changes. Personally, I am hoping they DON'T draft another freaking TALL project QB like Allen in the first round. I would rather them go after a FA (mainly Alex Smith) or trade for Eli Manning, and have Chad Kelly groomed as a backup and lets see what he has in TC next year.

I hope they draft a stud ILB with that high pick they are going to be getting, then landing a RT in the 2nd round. Right tackles are NOT typically drafted in the 1st round. If this team drafts another freaking first round project QB, with NO seasoned veteran on this team to be any sort of mentor with a coaching staff that sucks, and a defense that is getting weaker, well this team will be in the land of Brownsville.

Chasing their tails and going through the coaching carousel. I am not really anticipating Elway making a wise decision. Been a while. In fact I think the Broncos are one TWO franchises that has not drafted ONE PRO BOWLER since 2012.

NOT ONE.

So, are you seeing something from Lynch that suggests he has something? What?

Lynch has shown absolutely nothing, and 1 meaningless week 17 game is going to prove otherwise.

Take a look at the time stamp and answer your own question: Cugel posted 04-23-2017, 08:48 PM

That was in APRIL, BEFORE the season, when Paxton Lynch was being given an open chance to win the QB competition with Trevor. NOT now when he has another season of futility behind him and nobody doubts he's a bust.

Obviously, Elway wanted to give him a chance so it was dumb to think they would trade him before the season. Now nobody wants him, but that's how it goes some times. Not every first round QB pans out. Sometimes a guy just sucks and you can't help it.

Paxton had all the tools but never developed the mental attitude of a starting NFL QB. Now he's done. Maybe the keep him around as a #3 backup next year cause he's cheap. Maybe not too. This game might be his audition for a backup role.

Probably he sucks his way out of that too.
