    comments or criticisms

    What does everyone think of my attempt to trade Edgerin James and Chicagos defense for Willie Parker and Jason Witten. Without going into too much detail, I have Minnesota as another D and have been alternating them with Chicago depending on who they are playing that week, its worked out so far. I also am in serious need of tight end help as I am starting Owen Daniels because I gave up on Vernon Davis.

    It would give me 2 first round running backs as I also have Gore.

    so in short

    Edge and Chicago
    for
    Willie and Witten

    Is this a fair deal, good for me, or bad for me.

    any comments are welcome, thanks
    Hey Homer! If you can put it together, you'll put the Reds over the top....think about it.

    I would laugh at this deal if I was the one who had Parker and Witten.

    Chicago is overrated. They were exposed tonight by the Cowboys and they have to play 2 real good passing teams in Detroit and Green Bay 4 total times the rest of the year. They also play the Eagles and Seahawks. All those teams will put up points on Chicago.

    Willie Parker is a stud. After this year he will be a top 6 RB in every draft. James is no longer a stud and if Leinhart stays the QB he'll face 8 man fronts.

    Romo loves Witten. Witten may end up being the #2 TE this season behind Gates.

    So, back to the point, if you can somehow pull that deal off without it getting vetoed or seriously complained about you would be WAY ahead of the game.

    You might be able to trick someone into making that deal. It would be a steal if you could pull it off.

    As expected, he is smarter than that. The deal we have worked out and him willing to accept is

    Edge, Chicago, Torry Holt
    for
    Parker and Witten

    My wideouts are Brandon Marshall, Vincent Jackson, Darrel Jackson, and T.J.

    Do I pull the trigger?

    Do you start 3 WRs? TJ is a stud but relying on Jackson and Marshall all year might be risky.

    I think I would still do the deal if I was you. You are getting back 2 top tier players at their positions and only giving up 1 in Holt.

    Who will your other RB be to go along with Parker? If your other RB is also a true #1 then I would do the deal for sure.

    Re: comments or criticisms

    my other running back is Gore, so according to you this is a no brainer, yes?

    Heres my team if the trade goes through
    Brees/Delhome
    T.J/Marshall/Vincent and Darrel Jackson
    Gore/Parker/T. Jones/Brandon Jacobs
    Witten
    Jason Hansan
    Minnesota

    does this look like a team that can compete

    It's worth doing. Once Jacobs gets back healthy you could always move him or Jones and try to upgrade at receiver.
