    Do we beef up a weak secondary, or go after a beast on the front seven to add pressure?

    In this order I'd say a corner, safety, offensive lineman for more depth. I don't think they need much help and don't think they make any moves.

    A lfew guys that could be had based purely on my speculation with absolutely no substantiated evidence to back it up for a bargain price possibly.


    Rasheed Mathis, cb Jags

    Aquib Talib, cb Bucs

    Brandon Flowers, cb Cheifs

    Antoine Cason, cb Chargers

    Leon Hall, cb Bengals

    All dwindling teams that may be sellers?

    I dont anticipate any moves, but if there were my preferences would be to go S, CB, pass rushing  DE.

    I'd probably take Hall off that list.  The Bengals made the playoffs last year so I doubt they are selling atm.  I am personally not a huge fan of Talib and I think he probably freelances too much for BB's taste.  AJ smith is too arrogant to believe his team sucks so I'd imagine Cason wouldn't be available.

    Like you I have no idea whether Flowers or Mathis would be available although their teams certainly fit the profile of sellers.  Mathis tore his ACL last year and is on a one year deal.  I have no idea if he looks the same or not, but would probably come cheap.  I love Flowers, but he has a pretty hefty contract although it's not clear to me how much he got paid up front.  Either way since he is locked up for a while he might be prohibitively expensive in terms of picks.  Good list though.

    People have also floated the idea of trading the rights to Brian Waters and a pick for a corner. The Cowboys definitely need o-line help and are in Texas although it isn't clear if any of their corners are for sale.

    Belichick doesn't like to bring in guys who weren't in camp, he's never traded or brought in a guy mid-season who wasn't there in camp. 

     

    I think he thinks that his system is too complex and that trading for a guy would be a wasted trade because they won't contribute a lot.

    pc i don't mind that idea at all. Clearly he's not coming back here and wants to be in Texas. Better Dallas and not Houston.

    Well, there aren't a lot of trades in the NFL to begin with.  He did trade for Doug Gabriel one year; he fumbled once in his third or fourth game, and was out the door immediately.  Can't think of anyone else offhand.

    How about a WR that can actually get sepration when going out for a pass!

    I like trading the rights to Waters.  It would have to be for a place he would brush the dust off and play for though, like Dallas.  Not sure what we could get in return, but considering our secondary woes some help back there would be good.

    You really think the offense is a problem?  I don't.

    I think it's obvious we need Randy Moss and Barry Sanders on this "no talent" team. If we don't get 1 or both of these guys we may never win another game.

    Trades in the NFL are rare at the deadline and usually involve role players and low round draft picks. Given that we don't have a 5th or 6th next year and other then a very young DB core I'm not sure any role player will be better then what we have I don't think anything is going to get done.

    However, in fan fantasy land I'd love to get another DB (either S or CB) and an interior rusher who can replace Love on 3rd downs and Cunningham who's been inconsistent at best getting pressure.

    No,but if you can pick up a player like D. Bowe from KC why not?  I love D. Branch but he's a non factor at this point in his career.

    Trade a second rounder for a corner. I'd put the following players on the block and listen to any/all offers...Chung, Arrington, Dowling. Of course you're not going to get more than a roll of tape for these guys, but it might be a steal. I wouldn't hesitate to trade McCourty or Nincovich if there was a good offer on the table - I imagine that would be a trade for a higher cap number guy (but higher level of talent) - in exchange for our lower cap number (but decent talent guy). Does Baltimore want to part with that moron of a pass rusher that they just got back? He would look good on the other side of Chandler - I've seen him play us a few times - he's real hard to block.

    Why would you trade Ninkovich? The guy has been great so far. 27 tackles 4 sacks 4 ff and 2 recovered.  The guy is the second coming of mike vrabel except the touchdown catching part.
