Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

Thought maybe this deserved it's own thread. What are your thoughts on the trade deadline?

- Sell what you can to acquire future draft picks.

- Buy some pieces to compete for the division this year, and build the team for the future.

- Both - part ways with some players who aren't in the future plans, and add some pieces for the future.

- Neither - sit tight and wait for the offseason to make some moves.

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

Sell is the only answer IMO.

What are we buying for? A potential div title with a losing record only to get bounced in the 1st rd and have a much lower draft pick? No thanks.

Both...we're rebuilding. Not just buying, not just selling. We're repairing and replacing.

Yeah unless it's for Watson I don't want to make any moves

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I think you have to look beyond any potential division title this year. If a division title happens, great, but I think if you are buying it has to be for reasons beyond this year. I wouldn't be opposed to that if they found the right guy(s). It's actually smart IMO.

My answer is both.

A poll would probably be appropriate, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I'd trade RK and get a 4th for him if you still can. He's a good player but clearly isn't used as often anymore. As for trading for any "stars" no thanks, we need the picks and this roster is not good enough to come close to a playoff win. Kyle Allen looked solid Sunday but we all know he's not very good, we need a QB and the more games we win the less chances we have at getting a top 3 QB in this class. Sure you can get lucky like Seattle did and KC did with Mahomes but that's rare.

Trade.

Ryan Kerrigan for anything, I just want to see him play meaningful games. Put him in the ring of honor when he retires.

I dont think anyone Id want to trade is tradeable (Darby, Scherff) and I dont want to trade Fuller or any of the young guys.

My answer is both.
This is my thinking as well...if you can find a player that can help this season AND going forward on a deal, then yes...but it's usually hard to do. I want them to finish this season on a positive run to kickstart next season off. I'm not a fan of flushing this year totally in hopes that we somehow get our QB of the future in the offseason, because it's a good chance we won't.

Do not trade picks!!! Player for player swaps, sure, but no picks.

Re: Buyers, Sellers, Both, or Neither?

I get losing for draft picks, but that's if the ultimate goal is to eventually be a contender. I've long since dismissed the idea that this organization is capable of that. So I just want them to be as competitive as possible so that I might enjoy a Sunday five or six times a year.

Thoughts on Erik Reid to replace Collins?

I think they are ok at safety. Roll with Everett, Apke, Curl, and maybe bring up Reaves or Colvin from the practice squad. Fuller can play a little safety too if need be.
