Would you trade....

Gordon is a stud and I'd release Manningham in a heart beat to get this done.

Forget about Gordon's off-field issues for now, all we need is for him to ball out for us until the end of this season. The Super Bowl is an incredibly difficult prize to attatin, you got to make sure you got your ground covered to field the best possible team in all phases of the game.

With you all the way great points!!

Those in the minority who don't want to give up a 2nd for Gordon have a desire to play the Seahawks in Seattle in the playoffs. Because our status quo wr core and passing attack is crap and the possibility of our passing game getting shut down again like vs Seattle and vs Colts and we losing more games is a huge concern.

And of course all the teams that make moves are winners, right?

Gordon is a good player with great potential and a whole lot of baggage.

My sense is that his baggage is excessive enough to make a trade for him a bad risk.

I would rather keep the 2nd round pick.
Look at the situation:
Is WR a need in next years draft? Yes.
Is there a player of his caliber available, in the 2nd round in that draft? Unknown.
Does our FO have a history of quality scouting of WRs? NO
Do we have room on the roster for even half of our picks in next years draft? No

Clear answer.

I guess my question is this: Is Gordon the missing piece to the puzzle ala Deion Sanders? If he really is, you trade the second round pick. If not, you take a pass.

He very well could be which is why take a chance. A move needs to get decided soon because with Julio Jones out for the season, who knows if ATL goes after Gordon.

Well, you got two right out of four . Must try harder.

Gordon would be a high risk but also a high reward trade. With so many picks that we have next draft, why wouldn't we chance it? There is no way the niners will draft 13 rookies. Makes more sense to shop the pick now for an explosive player rather than trade down for even more picks.

After the 2013 season, we will probably lose players due to Kaeps potential contract and not to mention we'll need to resign Iaputi and Aldon eventually. Gordon will make our WR corps better now even if Manningham isn't 100% the rest of the season and I won't be surprised if Crabs doesn't even come back this season, amid all the reports.
A 2nd rounder is a no go. Too much risk even for a front office loaded with multiple picks in '14. No doubt Gordon has value but hopefully Baalke is fleecing Lombardi around a package of a 3rd/4th and a later round incentive based pick.
TANK CARRADINE AND JOSH GORDON FOR ALEX SMITH
4. The Compensation Is Already A Luxury

Here, the "compensation" is a second-round pick. I'm calling it a luxury because the Kansas City Chiefs are 5-0 right now and getting at least eight wins seems incredibly likely. When the Chiefs get eight wins, the conditional draft pick involved in the Alex Smith trade becomes a second rounder. Given the way the 49ers have been drafting, trading said second rounder for Gordon seems like an incredibly smart bet, no? In short, the 49ers would be getting Tank Carradine and Josh Gordon for Alex Smith -- a backup quarterback.

Gordon is DEFINITELY worth our 2nd rounder.
