  • What if (Crazy unrealistic scenario inside)

    What if the Giants traded up with the Cleveland Browns for the 4th selection and took Trent Richardson?

    What do you think Reese would have to give up? 2 1st rounders? This year's 2nd? Maybe a player or two?

    What kind of impact do you think Trent would have on this offense? Would he take the Giants to the next level?

    Yeah I know it isn't going to happen and you never really trade up for a RB but you have to admit that would be a sick offense. Just curious how people would react if that happened.

      What exactly is this the next level? They just won a Super Bowl. Are they gonna take and capture the White House or something?

        [quote user="Itlan"]What exactly is this the next level? They just won a Super Bowl. Are they gonna take and capture the White House or something?[/quote]Saints level of offense? Trent is a huge upgrade to replace Jacobs at this point in his career. With two Pro Bowl worthy receivers in Nicks and Cruz, I don't see teams being able to stack the box against Trent. Of course, I'm more curious what the price would be to acquire the pick. That would be the main factor in deciding if such a trade is bad or good.

          If having the Saints offense means having the Saints defense, no thanks.

            [quote user="Itlan"]If having the Saints offense means having the Saints defense, no thanks.[/quote]Teams can have good offenses and defenses you know. Our running game improving would most likely improve the defensive statistics due to better TOP but I don't think grabbing a good offensive player suddenly makes us worse or better in a drastic sense.

            I simply used the Saints since they were the only team (to my knowledge without looking it up) that were top 5 in passing and running.

              Maybe if this was 2004 and Eli was still a newbie it would be cool...

              I'm fine with Bradshaw splitting the carries with Ware/Scott/Possible late draft pick and Eli will handle the rest.

                  Dear sweet evil Tebus NO!!!

                  1) You don't take a RB that high.

                  2) You don't mortgage your future for a RB.

                  I don't care how good Richardson is. I wouldn't care if he was a "Twins" style ******* child of Emmit Smith, Barry Sanders, Walter Payton, Gayle Sayers, Jim Brown, and Adrian Peterson. No RB is worth two 1's and two 2's, a 4th and a 5th.

                  Yeah, that's how much it would cost to move up to 4, MINIMUM.

I forgot how much better he looked last season. He hit the hole harder,kept the pad level lower,was much more shifty in the open field,Im convinced had he not been battling injuries he would be a 2nd round pick. I think he is perfect for the Giants. He can run inside,outside and can block in the pasing game

                      His running style reminds me so much of someone but I cant think of who it is.

                              There actually is precedent for a deal of this nature.

                              As HC of Saints, Mike Ditka & Co traded ALL of their 1999 draft picks PLUS 1st and 3rd picks from the following year.

                              That was in order to move up to 5th pick of the 99 draft. And while I don't recall the Saints' original 1999 1st rd spot included in that trade, it sure wasn't nearly as far down as 32nd spot, like the Giants this year.

                              I don't think anyone here can adequately guess what would be required to trade from 32nd up to 4th. Nearly all picks from 2012 AND 2013? There isn't a single player alive (or dead) worth trading that much for.

                              Ask Mike Ditka.

                              Not only was that deal seriously questioned by all--and mocked by many--at the time, but it arguably cost Ditka his last job as a head coach in the NFL. Williams obviously never lived up to expectations provoked by a deal of that nature. And, honestly, who could? I think that's the unquestionable lesson from that debacle.
