    And I know it isn't very common in the NFL anymore, but just sayin'...

    What position would you pick as the priority to strengthen with the addition of a front line player?

    I guess it is still OL, but both lines could use shoring up as well.


    What position do you see us having the depth to afford to trade a good player in return?

    I'd give one of our Safeties first, then one of the CB's.

    Is this a MLB board?

    In the nfl, if we want to trade for a player, it is almost always for future draft picks.

    If we were going to trade for something, I'd probably want an OLB, followed by a stud 3-4 DE. Guard would be a distant third. As far as what I'd want to give up, definitely draft picks. The Pats are stacked in that dept.

    i would agree here, OLB first with pressure, and DE second for run support


    though it might be OL, so that we have an offense unstopable again, and it wont matter how much better the D would be

    He is right, this isn't the MLB. You almost never trade player for player so there's no need to pile on him.

    Disable Jersey

    If Warren's really lost for the year, this team's run defense at the DE spot could get ugly this year. That's where my first thoughts would go.

    If Warren is out do the Pats go harder after Schobel?

    Not sure what one has to do with the other......

    Schobel would be a situational player IMHO....

    Yes, but the situation in which we'd use him (4 man front) would probably be more frequently used without Ty.
