Do I Trade T. Brady & S. Smith(CAR) for D. Brees & S. Holmes

Postby bigrod5738 » Sun Aug 28, 2011 9:16 pm

I was offered a trade that would give me Drew Brees and Santonio Holmes in exchange fore Tom Brady and Steve Smith of The Carolina Panthers. I'm thinking this is a good trade for me as Brady and Brees are very close in the rankings, but Santonio Holmes is a bit ahead of Steve Smith, plus has a better situation at QB throwing to him. Just wondering what you guys think. Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

QB - T. Brady
RB - Ahmad Bradshaw
Flex - Knowshon Moreno
WR - Roddy White
WR - Steve Smith
TE - Dallas Clark
OP - Matt Cassel
Bench - Ryan Grant, Tim Hightower, Lance Moore, A.J. Green, Greg Olson, CJ Spiller

Its close, but I'd go ahead and do that trade.

I'd rather have Brees than Brady if I had to choose, and I don't expect much from the Carolina passing game this year.

I don't think it is that close. I would put Brees as a minor downgrade form Brady but I like Holmes a lot more than Smith (unless he can get traded which is looking slim)

I feel that you make this trade all day long! Brees is a touch better option than Brady, while Holmes is far greater than Steve Smith. Go for it!

I agree with this. Smith just doesn't appeal too me at all unles he's traded. Brees is a slight downgrade, but worth it to get rid of smith and add someone with actual value.
