There's no need to be calling for trades of any kind as of right now. We drafted 2 WR's in Santonio Holmes & Willie Reid. We have Hines Ward, a Top 10 WR in the NFL. Cedrick Wilson is good for his one catch a game. Give the guys time though, there's still 11 weeks left in the season....
See I disagree. All of our receivers our clones of one another. The team needs a variety at receiver and one tall guy who can go up in a crowd (or against a small DB) and get the ball.
None of the guys you just mentioned can do that. Steve Smith, Marvin Harrison and Santana Moss just get open plus they also have another good receiver whichs draws away extra coverage. Teams know to double up on Hines and there's no one left that scares them. When Plaxico was here that was impossible to do.
