Today's game was a good indication that we don't need to trade for anything or anyone. We just hung 42 points on the Jags, and it could have been far, far, far worse. We don't need the Brown's baggage or anyone else for that matter....
Sure the offense has really well these past 5 games but we have played the Rams, the "bad" version of the Texans, the Cardinals, Titans and Jaguars. Not to mention the defense has scored for us and helped us out a lot along the way. Not saying some of those aren't solid defenses but when we play the Saints and Seahawks we can't expect the defense to give us points and for Brees/Wilson to make mistakes. We can't expect as much out of the offense either going against better defenses. This is our 3rd shot at trying to win a SB and in the playoffs and SB is when it matters most and you aren't play the teams we played the last 5 weeks. You are playing teams like Seattle and the Saints. I'm not saying we have to make a trade; I'll hope for the best from Manningham and Crabtree but no denying we could use the help. When a team shuts down the run like say Seattle can let's hope Boldin, Crabtree, Manningham and Davis are enough. They might very well be but Gordon could be that deep threat that puts us over the top. And let me say though maybe it is too late to trade for a WR. I would have gave up a 2nd like week 3 or 4. Now that we have passed through the storm you guys could be right in that we will be ok. I think it would have gotten done if we went 1-3 or 2-4 but now that we are 6-2 seems less likely than when we were 1-2.
can we merge this thread with the official thread? Maybe it's just me but when you have multiple threads on the same topic it splits up the conversation and kills the conversation some what. http://www.49erswebzone.com/forum/niners/172878-would-you-trade/page67/
