Why would we trade for Brandon Marshall? Smart money says he's gone from Denver, we can sign him.


Same for Orton. He has more of a chance of staying there, but really, he's not much more than a game manager.


Why the hell would we trade one of are best players, and a young guy whose showing promise? We'd be in the same situation we are now.

Matt Moore and Steve Smith to Denver for Orton and Brandon Marshall.


:eek: I'm going to have to respectfully decline. I think we've seen the best Orton has to offer. I believe Moore has a higher ceiling. Smitty is older than Marshall but him and Moore got a good thing going for them right now.

Smith for Marshall you could justify, especially given their respective ages. I don't really know that I'd make the trade, but you could craft a decent argument for it.

Moore for Orton, though? That part of it I have a hard time buying into. Orton is, and likely always will be, a pure game manager (probably better suited in his skill set to a WCO). If Moore continues to improve like he did through the last five weeks of the 09 season, we could really have something.

Yes, he could also tank, but it's all a gamble on some level anyway.


You said it much better than I could, and you were probably sober too. :co:

Maybe if I was on shrooms. Or acid. Probably both.
