Very tough choice.

Bledsoe is inferior to Manning, but he's on the next tier under Manning

Alexander was very, very good last year. But his line was healthy and all of them showed up. There is still some unrest on their line now. C-Mart is hurt now, but is a quality, top tier back as well.

Gardner is a better receiver than Ismail because he's the #1 guy in a good system.

This is one of those make or break type trades. I wouldn't do it. You upgrade your WR position, stay about even at RB (if C-Mart is healthy) and move down a tier at QB.

Super difficult decision though.

You need to list the rest of your lineup. How can anyone give you good advice if they don't know what kind of depth you have.

I would do it, because I think Alexander will have a better year than Curtis Martin. It is tough though, but I think Bledsoe has more big play recivers than manning so I don't think there will be a HUGE diffrence between them and the upgrade at WR is great. Tough choice though.

Very risky trade on both sides. But I think more on your side because if Curtis Martin stays healthy he will put up simliar numbers as Alexander but you will lose out because you traded Manning.

I would try a different approach. Why don't you try to package Tiki. Testeverde and Ismail to get a top ten RB? I think your team would be solid at that point because you are just a little thin in the RB position. This would also allow you to keep Manning.

My vote is to hold off on that trade and try a different approach. Who knows maybe that guy will come down in demand alittle bit while you look around.
