    Warning: Madden esque trades but 4 the fun of do you think this team could win West?

    Let me start off by saying this will never happen...But in the hypothetical make believe world if this team was assembled could it win the West this year?? Below Suh along with a starter at OLB and DE are added to the defense. Also four weapons to the offense that would rank near the top of the NFL at their positions QB, WR, TE, and RB(backup) are added.

    Trades:

    Denver:
    2nd round pick for Brandon Marshall it has been stated recently that they would take less then a 1st round draft pick.

    4th round pick for Tony Scheffler they have been trying to move him this off-season.

    Phily:
    3rd and 5th rounder for McNabb the asking price is continuing to come down and it’s almost certain they don’t want to go into the season with all three of their QB’s. McNabb seems like the one they would prefer to trade because of Kolb being younger and McNabbs contract being higher then Vicks. If McNabb is traded then Kolb would step in and be the starter with Vick as the backup.

    Draft:

    1. Ndamukong Suh 6’4 305
    2. Brandon Marshall 6’4 230 25 (Traded to Denver)
    3. Donovan McNabb (Traded to Phily)
    4. Tony Scheffler TE 6’5 255 27 (Traded to Denver)
    5. A.J. Edds LB 6’4 246 4.62
    5. (Traded to Phily)
    6. Myron Lewis CB/FS 6’2 203 4.4 40
    7. Chris Marinelli OT/G 6’7 300 5.23 40 (leader of team with fewest sacks in PAC 10. Played G and moved to OT)
    7. Adrian Tracy LB 6’3 248 4.76 40
    7. BPA

    Sign:

    Alex Brown DE 6’3 260 31
    “Chicago Bears defensive end Alex Brown had 48 tackles last year and served as one of the team's captains. But it appears the leader isn't long for the Windy City. The nine-year veteran is apparently on the trading block, according to the Chicago Tribune. With the recent addition of Julius Peppers the Bears don't need Brown anymore. The team shouldn't expect much in a trade, because the word is that if a trade can't happen, Brown will just get released.” Five of the last six years he has had six or more sacks. He would be a good stopgap along with Hall at our DE position opposite Long.

    Na’il Diggs OLB 6’4 240 32

    Willie Parker RB

    IMO Vobora, Lau, Fletcher, and J. Smith will all be better in their second years as starters. Karney, L. Robinson Fletcher and J. Smith returning healthy should help alot as well. I think this will also be Longs breakout year he is consistently improving.

    Yeah, we might be able to win the West with that roster, but only because the rest of the division is so weak. I don't think we'd get far in the play-offs. My main complaint about this would be trading away picks for a quarterback who would probably only play for us a few more years. The Brandon Marshall trade is particularly tempting because he's one of the best in the league and only 26 years old.

    Really its hard to argue with the logic that any of the rookies we would draft with those picks would have a greater impact on this team than the players acquired via trade. I think my Brandon Marshall stance is on record here somewhere (its very much pro Marshall )

    Particularly favorable is the fact that Marshall and Scheffler are both still quite young.

    Plausible? No

    Fun? Heck ya

    If we're goin' all fantastical, I would have picked up Peppers and Chester Taylor or FB/RB McClain in FA as well. I also think whoever gets Myron Rolle in the mid-rounds will have an excellent versatile secondary player. Butler is OK but Rolle has huge upside,imo.

    And I'd rather have Weatherspoon as OLB as well.

    Not sure who would have been available in a normal FA to fill the RG spot but neither Fraley nor Greco strikes me as fantasy-perfect options. That interior line is a major key to competing in the NFCW vs the strong front sevens our opponents field in reality. I think that's where the ass-whuppin starts in every divisional game.

    Actually although I give my original scenario about a 0.00001% chance of ever happening it would not be that much of a cap killer IMO. We don't thave very many big contracts on the books. We released alot of big cap hits the last few years and we would save some more money with the release of Bulger. Cap wise I doubt we would be over the cap if there was a cap this year.

    Right now we'd be way under the projected cap if there was going to be one for 2010, but there won't. We don't even know what that cap might be at this point.
