Maybe, because Orton is proven and Marshall is young, but I dont like the baggage the he carries with him.

If I was confident that our coaches would start Moore, then I wouldn't do the trade though.

Marshall is what Calvin Johnson was expected to be.

Moore has more upside than Orton and Marshall has more baggage than Smith believe it or not. We need to improve our wide receivers not replace one for another. Now if you were talking adding Marshall I might be in the conversation but he is a talent for sure but a locker room problem. If we get rid of Smitty we need a guy like Boldin or someone who would be good on the field and off.

Orton is proven to be nothing but a game manager who chokes when the game is thrown onto his shoulders. He has a noodle arm, and while he does make good decisions, he cannot carry a team on his shoulders. I'd rather wait and see if Moore can rather than throw him out without giving him a full season to show us what he's got.

Brandon Marshall is a stud, though. I like Smitty more though :P

also to someone who mentioned Calvin Johnson.. Take a look at who has been throwing him the ball lol. He had 1300 receiving yards with Cullpepper throwing to him lol, and this year he was injured a lot. Wait until Stafford gets a better o-line and has more than .01 seconds in the pocket and you'll see how good Megatron is.

He is comparable to Julius Peppers when it comes to genetics/athletic freakness.

edit- forgot to answer the question haha. no, not a chance in hell.

I don't think it's a good trade but even if you think we're coming out slightly ahead in value the difference wouldn't be significant enough that it's worth switching out 2 key positions on offense. It sets your team back bringing new guys in, having them learn a new system, go through that learning curve and develop chemistry with all new teammates. Plus there's always the risk that they flop in a new system with new players around them, like Cutler did in Chicago. There's a reason why player for player trades almost never happen.

why....we would still need a #2 receiver...i would still take a 30 year old smith with 3-5 good years left in him anyday. plus, moore can and did get the ball to him.
