why trade two crucial players when we legitimately have a chance next year? this is a good team, just a year removed from the Super Bowl, and I know they are getting old, but c'mon....trade Hines??? are you trying to kill me here?!?

Yeah, it would really suck to see either Hines or Faneca go, but if it came down to having to let one or both of them go in order to be able to keep Troy and Ben, I know what I'd want the FO to do....

Hines continues to be underrated. If he were playing for Peyton, he would be statistically one of the best - top 5 - receivers in the league. What if it were suggested that the Colts trade Marvin Harrison? Same thing.

And Faneca? Everyone in the league recognizes he is one of the top 2 in the league at his position. Most would say Hutchinson is 1 and Faneca is 2.

The notion of trading both or either is simply not logical.

I think you mean to say if Hines played in a system more like the Colts...

BC leaving, and Hines Smile leaving would send me over the edge...I responded to this post out of shear nonsense...

I can't wait till the season starts, and we have something to really talk about.

I agree with this point. However, I liken it to losing Dermontti Dawson and Rod Woodson. I think we felt the loss of Woodson alot deeper and for alot longer than the loss of Dawson, even though both were among the best players in NFL history at their respective positions. I'm not thinking about next year as far as this issue goes, but come 2008, we may realistically be having to look at making major sacrifices like this.

... not from a fans point of view. from a managerial/ ownership point of view its extremely logical.

put it this way: out of these 4 you can only keep 2 in order to remain competitive and turn this into a 4 man show.

faneca
ward
ben
polamalu

pick 2.
