Well, teke, I would say Mort was correct in his statement. If the Vikings discussed trading for Schaub at all, of course there had to be some discussion about parting ways with the first even if that started and ended with the statement, "We aren't trading our first round pick for him."
But I'm just saying that it was never really an option for the Vikings. And it never has been much of an option for the Falcons to trade Schaub for less than a 1st, that clearly became evident after the Abraham negotiations.
Me calling it overblown is based off my believe that the gist of the trade discussions between the Falcons and Vikings about Schaub was this:
Vikings: What are you looking for in terms of compensation for Schaub?
Falcons: A first round pick.
Vikings: Err, we'll get back to you on that. *click*
And that was it. The Vikings might have mulled it over a bit more after that, but frankly, I think they realized Schaub was a major longshot and they would need to focus elsewhere.
