Could be big

Melvin Gordon's agent told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he requested last week that the Los Angeles Chargers trade Gordon after the team remained at its initial offer of approximately $10 million per season.

Agent Damarius Bilbo told Anderson that Chargers general manager Tom Telesco told him the Pro Bowl running back is still viewed as family, but Bilbo was not given permission to seek trade partners.

Last year, Bilbo was able to convince the Miami Dolphins to move his client Jarvis Landry in a trade. Landry received the franchise tag and was then traded to the Cleveland Browns.

Gordon is holding out from training camp as he seeks a new contract. Last week, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gordon's holdout is expected to be prolonged and threatens to last into the season.

Gordon, 26, is scheduled to be in the last year of his contract, a fifth-year option worth $5.6 million.

crazy as it sounds, he could wind up being better than Favre. Favre never had this kind of fire power at his disposal. Sterling Sharpe would've been an all-time great WR but his career was cut short by injury. Other than that, the Packers never really gave Favre the kind of weapons that Baker will get to play with for the foreseeable future.

Favre was a great player and talent, but boy did he LOVE to turn the ball over at the very worst times. Baker takes risks with the football, but they are more calculated risks. Favre would try anything, people only remember the crazy plays that worked out. They forget too often all the stupid plays he made that killed his teams chances at winning. Favre is obviously an all-time great and worthy HOF QB, but he was WAY too praised and over-hyped during his playing days. Steve Young was FAR superior to Favre imo, and he never got the hype or press of Favre. All Steve Young got for much of his career was how he wasn't Joe Montana and that he could never win the big one. And it's crazy to me, because Young was so much better than Favre, it's not even really close in my eyes. Favre is obviously great, but he was never in the same class as Montana or Marino or Elway before him, or Peyton and Brady after him. And too many people in the media tried to make him out to be.

Baker seems to be a much smarter QB with a higher football IQ.

Tom Brady signs a 2-year, $70 million extension with the Patriots. He'll be under contract until he's 44. Damn.

Farve and Romo had some similarities... Their highs were high, but their lows were low. Farve could win you football games nearly single-handedly, but he could [and would] occasionally also lose them for you. And that type of variance tends to look good in the regular season but hurts in single-elimination playoff scenario. Farve managed to get a ring, while Romo did not, but even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

Farve holds [by far] the record for most interceptions thrown in a career. And it's true, he has a LOT of pass attempts, but it doesn't scale linearly. Drew Brees today has only about 4% fewer career pass attempts than Favre, but has over 100 fewer interceptions thrown. Nobody on a roster today looks like they'll have a chance of catching Favre's interception record.

Idk why I forgot to mention Brees, he's right up there with Peyton and Brady. I'd certainly put all 3 of those guys well above Favre.

Favre and Romo are a great comparison. Romo was like Favre Light. Or Diet Favre. Whatever you want to call it.

You know, to some extent I take it back. Farve had a much higher interception rate than Romo...

Romo's interception rate isn't great, but it's not bad. It's actually the same as Peyton's, as well as Big Ben, Andy Dalton, etc. Not terrible company.

Among players with >1500 career attempts, that group is tied for 34th. 

Farve is in a tie for 70th. With such illustrious names as Jay Cutler and Josh Freeman. 

Interesting is that Rodgers and Brady are VERY low INT%. Rodgers is #1 on the list and Brady tied for #2. Brees is top-20, and I would have expected Rodgers and Brady to be in the same range with careers as long as they've had. That's pretty remarkable.
