    Just for fun, and lets keep it that way, dont try to twist this around but.....

    If you could trade Merriman for any two players from one team, who would it be. I know I would never but it would be fun to read some of your guys opinions.

    You can't put a price tag on a human being.

    It's funny, but those two are the only players I would even consider for him. Seperately.

    Steve Smith is the most dominant WR in the league, and I shudder to think what the guy would do with a legitimate QB. He might be the best offensive player in the game- even better than our LT...

    Peppers is simply the most dominant DL in the game, but I would take Merriman based on potential. That is a huge statement considering that Peppers is only a few years into a HOF career...

    Merriman is going to change the game if he can stay focused and clean.

    Sure ya can...

    How much is the human body worth?
    How much is a human body worth? When broken down into fluids, tissues and germ fighting our bodies are worth more than $45 million.

    This price tag on the human body is based on a survey published in Wired magazine. It found that vital organs are no longer the most valuable body parts. Rather, bone marrow heads the list…priced at $23 million, based on 1,000 grams at $23,000 per gram.
    DNA can fetch $9.7 million, while extracting antibodies can bring $7.3 million. A lung is worth $116,400, a kidney $91,400 and a heart $57,000.

    Women’s eggs are costlier than men's sperm. The survey found that a fertile woman could sell 32 egg cells over eight years for $224,000; however, for a man to earn the same amount, he would have to make 12 sperm donations a month for 20 years.

    The prices are based on cost estimates taken from hospitals and insurance companies, and are based on projected prices only in the United States. Of course, the prices also assume that all these substances can be extracted from living tissue for sale.

    Although this break down is illegal, unethical and also impossible, you should not feel like a million dollars anymore. You can feel like $45 million, instead!

    Same team? Smith and Peppers

    Different teams? Andre Johnson and Dwight Freeney

    I think you could move Freeney to outside LB in our system and it would be like two Shaun Phillips

    And CHEEE-Spa, cool it. Just a theoretical here
    kinda like being back in law school

    Good call... at this point in their carreers I'd probably take Vilma over Urlacher too... Another name that just came to mind is Tommy Harris

    I thought they were supposed to be two players from the same team. Heck, if we can choose any two players from anywhere I'd take Champ Bailey and Steve Smith.

    Im glad to see mostly everyone understanding this question. Its fun to see how much Merriman is worth and we should all sit back and just watch this guy tear up the league. No way am I wishing he was traded, just a simple appreciation that we have the best OLB in the league right now. I like alot of your answers but Pacman Jones? Hope that was a joke.
