    Last year before the trade deadline AJ pulled the trigger on semi-blockbuster deal when he traded for Chris Chambers. Since that it's been up hill from there. Maybe we can look to trade some draft picks to a team that is in a rebuilding stage. Chiefs? Derek Johnson might be tired of losing and we can switch him to ROLB. Rams? Maybe ship witherspoon to give us some balls at tackling. Lions? Maybe Simms might be tired of getting no help in the rush off. and might look to a better team.

    These are all just thoughts and it's only week 3 but i have a feeling we might get some firepower at D if there aren't some changes. Lets be real..Cooper is no Urlacher. He's a great tackler and a poor coverage backer. One guy won't change the defense. We need someone that is really a star to fill that void left by merriman. Plus we don't know if merriman well resign so. Just something we should look into.

    Don't bomb me.

    Please play nice.

    Id love to have Derrick Johnson but we would have to give up a lot to get him and if we did, he would most likely play ILB for us.

    I dont see it being realistic that we would be able to trade for him. And it isnt up to the player and whether they are tired of losing.

    ...A.J hasn't exactly stockpiled draft picks, trading next years 2nd for example. I don't see being willing or able to give up much. Now if someone was willing to take Wilhelm and Smith :yes:
