    I know there have been a lot of rumors going around and a lot of people with opinions on what to do this offseason. I thought I would put my 2cents in it. so even if this sounds a little strange, please bear with me and truely think about it!

    I think we should trade Bubba Franks and a second round draft pick to the raiders for randy moss. Once we sign moss I think we should trade moss and moorency to the colts for Marvin harrison(or reggie wayne) and after we get one of those two, we shuold trade that player to the Browns for there first round draft pick. Along with that trade to the Browns we should trade Chad Clifton and we should sign Joe(the badger) I think we will be set for a superbowl run. BTW the browns really need some help at the WR spot.

    what the packers "should" do, and what the packers "could" do are VERY different. First, we must define what the packers could do, and what they could not do. I think your scenario fits in the "could not do" category, as their are a LOT of contingencies in your plan and i don't see any way that such a highly coordinated scenario could be pulled off. therefor, since it is *probably* not possible for the packers to be involved in such a situation, it is not relevant to discuss whether or not they "should" do this.

    that being said, if your proposition were to present itself, i guess i would be happy with it, if you don't mind losing.

    I could see this scenario playing out in Madden, but not real life.

    So we give up our second, Bubba and Clifton for Joe Thomas and we're set for a Super Bowl run? Is that what you're saying?

    EDIT: Forgot about giving up Morency too.

    Packers Lose

    -Bubba Franks
    -Morency
    -Clifton
    -Second round pick

    Packers Gain

    -Browns First round pick (Joe Thomas)

    I'm not sure if I'm reading this right but that seems like a ridicules trade. We lose our possible starting RB for next year. Our starting tight end (as bad as he is.) And our starting left tackle for an unproven rookie. Seems pretty unfair to me.

    I think the scenario presented itself is quite unrealistic.

    There is no way that the Colts trade Harrison for Moss and Morencey.

    You may be able to do these types of deals in Madden, but in reality they have a snowball's chance in hell of happening.

    If your going to do something like this, select Calvin Johnson and move Colledge to LT, with Spitz at LG, and Moll at RG.

    Won't happen though and I don't think either the Packers or Browns would make a trade like this.

    Since Clifton was not mentioned until after acquiring the Brown's first round pick, the way I read this was as follows:

    Packers Lose

    -Bubba Franks
    -Morency
    -Clifton
    -Second round pick

    Packers Gain

    -Browns First round pick (Joe Thomas)
    -Undisclosed draft pick for Clifton

    Ignoring the salary cap and feasibility issues, it wouldn't be that horrible depending on what we get for Clifton. We could replace Morency with either Lynch or Bush which would IMO be an upgrade or draft a TE. We would still have our first round pick then to use on Lynch or Olsen if they are available. So we would be swapping:

    -Bubba, Morency, Clifton, and 2nd round pick

    for

    -Joe Thomas, Bush or Highly rated TE

    Not horribly one-sided since Thomas has the potential to be a franchise tackle, but still quite a bit of risk involved. I do like how we get rid of some of our aging and deteriorating talent however.

    Yeah you are not losing much. Franks and Morency could be gone tomorrow and noone would know. You basically are giving up Clifton for Thomas and a 2nd for another high pick. It's all not going to happen but it's not that bad

    (I'm editing this, so people don't think i'm calling anyone an idiot, or thinking that i agree with this way of attacking people. I was trying to kind of turn this into a laugh by making light of it, but i guess maybe i shouldn't have. I try to calm things down with a joke sometimes, but i guess sometimes that doesn't work so well.)

    Care to elaborate at all with some reasoning? Or do you just want to label everyone as an idiot?

    I myself wouldn't have used the word "idiot". I would just say different views then mine. There have been some pretty outragious threads posted here at times though. Sometimes they just make me shake my head and laugh.
    Like i said, i would rarely use such strong of language as to call someone an idiot. There have been a few people that used to come here that i would have labeled as such, but only after i had been attacked SEVERAL times by them. Then i would use it more in self defense then anything.
    I think it's ok for people to voice there opinions, as long as it's done civil.

    I'm ******* sick and tired of people coming on here and then disrespecting others by calling them idiots.

    First of all, if your are coming to a place full of idiots, aren't you an idiot yourself?

    Secondly, they were stating THEIR VIEWS, not going out and saying this is what MUST be done.

    Third, everyone has a varying amount of football knowledge. So if one thing seems simple enough to them, they are encouraged to post it here to get feedback. It will allow our members to read something and get more knowledge on the subject matter.

    If you find this place full of idiots, don't come here anymore. I don't mind banning your account to make sure you don't have to put up with the "idiots" that post here.

    Notice I didnt say "you idiots" I didnt mean in any way that everyone here was an idiot! There are some of you on here I really respect, and then there are those of you who seem to have your head somewhere else. And for those people I am suprised they get all exited about the original post. Because it doesnt seem too far off from some of the crazy things people could see happening.

    I would say this thread has served it's purpose. Let's move on and even if we don't mean it, let's try and avoid calling anyone an idiot because it doesn't get us anywhere.
