Hey gents, slow day at the off-house. (off today)

 

Anyway, I know many of you peruse through the internet and find tidbits and news and post about other teams. I keep readint how some rather insignificant trades are being done. Insignificant in the sense that they are not blockbuster type trades. No big names. Example, The Niners and the Chiefs basically swapping average players. I think it was Jenkins for Baldwin. Both WR. I assume both parties gave up on their prospects and decided, what the heck, lets see what this other kid has? Right?

 

Well, as many of you know, we are in need of OL help. I can not stress this enough. I believe we do have the fire power to maybe intice a team thats OL rich to help. We all know we are stacked at the RB department. Gettleman knows this too. Personally I believe we are stacked at the DE department too. Now with Star and KK, the DT department is rather crowded.

 

 

Moving forward, Gettleman has not shown us what he can do in the trading department. Hurney was not too bad at it. Just some of the players did not pan out. Except Olsen. That was a sweet deal.

 

So, do you think Gettleman has a trade in the works or maybe he is playing his cards close and waiting on an OL to hit the waiver wire? I know there are still 3 weeks left. I just have a feeling there may be a trade in the works. Call it a hunch...or the burrito I just ate.

I could live with trading a RB for a OL or two

I think we should trade with the chiefs for Branden Albert.

Do not know if we could afford that.  I know as it stands the cap is looking decent. Being that the situation I do not see Albert being brought in, unless the chiefs give him to us. Is he not owed a substantial amount of money? That would be the other thing to keep an eye on, the player that wouldbe traded would take minimal amount of money. I am also not against getting WR help instead of OL help. The more I think about it now. OL or WR help would be just what is needed.

What RB? Nobody wants a 30 year old RB, nor a perpetually injured RB. We need Tolbert.

I'm sure someone out there could use one.

Oh please, that's not the reason why. Today's NFL doesn't value the RB position like it did 5-10 years ago. Yet, teams like Arizona, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, etc need a feature back.

I'm sure the Patriots would love Williams still, they've wanted him for years. But what do we do without him? We have a big stable of RBs but none of them are actually reliable at this point.

I guess it would have to come down to what gentleman believes.

 

big stable vs a decent OL

That's a good point. I'd take injured Stewart and Barner running behind a beastly o-line.

Trade some low round picks on vet Olineman who may be cut? I'm down with that. Could be the only choice we've got.
