If you're Bill Belichick and you get a phone call from the Colts offering to trade Andrew Luck for Tom Brady before today's game, do you make that deal? Raj: I certainly would not. Yes I agree that Andrew Luck is the big story of the NFL these past few weeks and he has every right to have that publicity. However, I think it's too early to even think that he will be a great quarterback for the next decade. With that in mind, we already know Tom Brady is using whatever little gas he has left in him to get one more ring for the Patriots. They at least know they don't have to worry about a QB dilemma for the next year or two. Although, if the Colts wanted to offer Luck for Ryan Mallett and a couple of draft picks in 2015, hey, I say we take it!  Stephen:  In a heartbeat. I love Tom Brady as much as anyone else and he's clearly the MVP of this team and this franchise, but Tom won't be around forever. He may only have four elite years left, but Luck is just scratching the surface of his potential. The Colts basically showed Peyton Manning the door for Luck and the Colts have a winning record. Throwing Luck into a talented team like New England would pay off now but also the future.  Derek: This is such a tough question.  Obviously, my heart wants to say "no" and stick with the QB who has allowed me to experience three Super Bowl championships and countless other incredible moments.   My head, however, is greatly conflicted.  There are many days when I wonder what following this team will be like post-Brady if the Pats have some 6-10 seasons and are out of the playoff hunt.  Trading for Luck would essentially give Patriots fans a good shot at another 10+ years of dominance.  On the flip side, the Patriots are in the midst of a 3-4 year window where they should be title contenders.  Would I really want to give up these next few years while Luck learns the ropes?  We don't know how much longer Belichick will coach or what this roster will look like 5 years from now.  We could trade for Luck only to have the rest of our roster and coaching dip right as he hits his prime.  In the end, I think I'd have to answer this question following the Patriot way of taking things one game at a time and not looking too far ahead.  Today, I'd rather have Tom Brady as my quarterback than Andrew Luck, and so I won't make that trade.
