So its basically the same trade but you keep what I think is the better QB, and get the same 3 guys you wanted? yeah, I think you do it, Brees is great, Romo you can trade, and you need Andre but have some depth to wait for him. Seems like you're giving less to get the deal you wanted..

Help with mine?

Do you see this as a no brainer for me? I just hate giving up Rice but I feel like I have to make this trade.

I dont think its a no-brainer, I love the Rice/McCoy combo. You do need help at WR, but andre is likely out this week and with the Texans on bye in 11, no lock to be back week 10 either. Brees is an upgrade, but I think Romo is fine and Big Ben will have some weeks where he has great matchups too.

all said, you are getting the guys you wanted, IMO for less then what you countered him with. I like the trade if you're looking ahead to the playoffs, Brees is a beast, 2nd to Rivers this year, and Andre will be back week 12 IMO and greatly improves your WR's for a playoff run. Murray has looked more the primary back then Felix ever has, and I wouldnt be suprised at all if Murray kept the starting job even with Felix back.

Rivers has been a beast LOL....right...I'll take Rodgers, Brees, Newton, Brady etc over Rivers.

I think you are overpaying just a bit here.

I meant rodgers, I'm not sure how rivers got in there lol

i agree it is overpaying a little, but you have to overpay when it comes to getting guys like Brees.
