Team A wins, by far.

Culpepper has well documented problems this year, Holt is banged up, James is the only thing worth any value.

OTOH, Alexander is a beast and shouldn't ever be traded, Brown is so-so, but if you have Alexander your team you can get by with Chris Brown. Ward is getting healthy and as long as Big Ben is throwing to him, he's an asset.

The trade was revised as follows:

Team A gets Shaun Alexander, Chris Brown, Kerry Collins and Hines Ward

Team B gets Edgerrin James, Torry Holt, Antonio Gates and Daunte Culpepper

Any new thoughts on this deal??

Shaun Alexander is a stud, but I'd say Team B gets the better deal.

This is an odd trade. Both teams are exchanging QBs, RBs, and WRs.

Alexander is a *very slight* upgrade over James.
Holt is usually a *slight* upgrade over Ward, but he's hurt right now.
Collins is a moderate upgrade over Culpepper.

The deal is basically Chris Brown for Antonio Gates, and Gates is a HUGE step up in that deal.

I worry about Holt's health, though.
