    If your in the camp that the Rams need a QB and that will fix everything then OK, but Sam Bradford is Tim Couch at best.
    Don't know how you can argue with that logic

    Awesome job -- if Marshall will play here give the 2nd in a heartbeat.

    THis is a dream off-season to get a young QB and top WR (young).

    Pick any DT in the league and imagine trading him straight up for Marshall. (any team would do that, but you wanna keep the pick for a DT--ha)

    Ok, i pick Albert Haynesworth, Kevin Williams, Vince Wilfork or Haloti Ngata.

    Marshall was promised a contract and the new coaching staff/management reneged on the money, then he became a RFA.

    Now Denver wants to get rid of Scheffler too. Its obvious the Denver offensive is a joke. They couldn't even get Royal the ball.

    Marshall is a top 3 WR and pairing him with SJAX and say Bradford would immediately make us a top 10 offense.

    So, a 2nd round pick would be a steal.

    He has a crazy finacee and traffic problems....I think he is just young and dummb....

    he will be a stud for 5 -6 years, why not here....

    ?
    No arguing his production on the field.....

    However, young and dumb is what some have described pacman. The guy comes with alot of luggage and BTW Shanahan had problems with Marshall and planned on trading him. So last I checked it was 2 coaches who wanted Marshall out.

    Go Rams

    No need to trade for Marshall... Next years draft you will have a shot at AJ Greene or Julio Jones.... Two awesome wideouts and we should be picking in the top 5 or 6 again...

    You are probably right we will be picking in the top 5 or 6 next year if we don't trade for Marshall. So why not trade for Marshall fill a major need with one of the best WR's in the league. Then next year we could fill another major need. I never understood the we can wait and have this player next year philosophy when you can get one of the top players in the NFL now for a second round pick instead of waisting a 1st rounder next year on a player that will likely not produce as much as Marshall would. Marshall is exactly what we need a true #1 WR, one of the best in the league, and he is a big physical WR which we have not had in a long long time.

    Oh yeah and Rams please sign Alex Brown DE now that he has been released. He fills another major need and we would not have to look at DE early in the draft.

    Because Marshall is just as good as making bad decisions as he is at playing football. Trading for him would be akin to playing Russian Roulette with five of the six chambers loaded.

    Marshall has played in all but 3 games since he was drafted 4 years ago and has not missed more then 1 game in a season. The game is football and it takes physical players with great talent to make a difference. Nice guy gets you nowhere in football if you don't have great skills as well. Marshall has great skill and is a top WR in the league. You say the trading for one of the best WR's in the league is like playing Russian Roulette with 5 of 6 in the chamber when he has not missed more then a game in a season. The chances ae not very good for any rookie drafted in the second round being as good as Marshall. Its really gambling when you bet an unproven rookie in the second will be as good as Marshall. The percentages are not in your favor.

    If all that is true why do you think he's still on the trading block?

    Again, you can not argue the numbers. However, football is much more than talent alone. WHat does the player bring to the team. Will he have a positive attitude and make others around him better or will he claim to be hurt during camp and disruptive?

    Go Rams

    I think I gotta agree with DD on this one. Marshall is the Next TO. The FO dont need him and they dont want him. They have said numerous times that they believe in cultivating a reciever corps from within the organization, not bringing in outside veterans. Marshall isnt even an option.

    Re: Bradford mock with trade for Marshall

    I wouldn't mind if we got Marshall.

    Face it, he and Bradford would be lighting up the dome...

    Okay, he has off the field problems. But who can say he won't change when he gets a new environment and fresh start? Leaving Denver would probably be best for him. Plus, the guy is young. We have lots of good character guys on our team. Our guys could play a huge role in Marshall's life, maturing him into a better person off the field?


    You can't guarantee Marshall will come in here and continue to have issues. Yes, he may continue to have issues, but he may also turn it around.

    Also, we are not Broncos fans. Our info about his problems with Denver, etc. are not really that good...


    Plus, Marshall is no way like Terell Owens in my opinion...

    Brandon Marshall was one of the only reasons the Broncos were such a surprise last year. His talent on the field outweighs the slight "character problems" people say he has. Just because he did not want Cutler to leave (who in their right mind would be happy to get Kyle Orton anyway?) does not mean he is TO. Brandon Marshall produces on the field; that is what we need. End of story.

    SOO, long story short, I would give a 2nd rounder for Marshall if the monetary implications are fair and logical.

    Re: Bradford mock with trade for Marshall

    Kroenke is not relevant is player personnel or spending decisions. Welcome to the world of minority ownership. Marshall is not going to sign a contract without getting a ton of up front guaranteed money. He can get it from other teams, why should he depend on roster bonuses in the future from anyone? Not going to happen guys. Interesting topic for debate, but purely academic.

    ramming speed to all

    And if you wouldn't trade any of these for Marshall you are a fool.

    Re: Bradford mock with trade for Marshall

    Despags said early in the offseason they could afford to take more of a character risk,if the talent was there,now that they have a foundation of guys in place, everyone thought they were talking about Vick, maybe they were eyeing this guy early on and were just waiting it out.
    If this trade is available, then imo do it.
