I'm thinking we need to make a trade. Raji going down has exposed a huge weakness on our DL. As much as I like Ryan Pickett, he is getting up there and simply cannot take the same rep load the younger Raji does. What do you guys think? I'm kind of hoping Ted pulls the trigger on a deal here soon.

As mentioned prior to the draft, we are still relatively deep at WR and TE compared to many teams in the league.

Mike Neal is back, so no. Until he proves he's a complete bust by getting injured again or being ineffective, you don't trade. You don't make one position weaker to help another position. WR is the Packers strength and the star is already injured there.

I say no.
I doubt we would get anybody in return who would actually bolster our roster.
Player for player trades are quite rare anyway.

I would trade Finley in about 8 seconds to add another wide body NT. Doesn't have to be a world beater, just someone else to eat up blockers for our LBs. Especially with us facing HOU Sunday.

I don't think so. Pickett doesn't need to carry the snap load that Raji did. He only needs to carry about 50% of the total defensive snaps, if even that much. With the return of Neal, who looked pretty good in his first game back combined with Worthy, Daniels, Wilson. Put Pickett on the nose when we are in a true 3 man line which isnt' very often, and use him sparringly in 2 man formations.

The time is for the rushers to do what they were drafted for. The only time that I would really have concern is if we get into a goal-line situation when we actually used both Pickett and Raji at the same time.

I really liked what Neal did last week, and unfortunately, Daniels was inactive. As a fan, I'm not comfortable with us being so lean on DL depth, especially after last season, and especially at NT.

This. Neal was impressive in his first week back. He's only gonna get better.

Raji will be back for the Playoffs.

Why trade if we can pick up a Daniel Muir as a street free agent? IMO, he was as consistent as we had in the preseason.

No, we should not trade for a lineman unless we get real value and fits a three four. Real value meaning a young guy the can be part of the answer for a couple of years. That market isn't there..

Yep.. waiting for a scenario to be thrown out there. JJ for JJ.. or how about JJ for Woodson.. lol.

That could get me on another small pet peeve that I have of Ted Thompson, his reluctance to draft kids from Wisconsin. LOL.
