    So every move that happens in the nfl has a domino effect, some more than others
    the trade of trent green could have a HUGE domino effect on the league
    lets say that with the move culpepper is released
    and lets also say for arguments sake that culpepper is then picked up by oakland, and they then select calvin johnson
    what could happen because of that is a selection of adrian peterson by tampa bay, and a trade of cadillac williams
    let's say that the team that trades for cadillac was the team that was gonna take lynch (buffalo? green bay? tennesse? giants?)
    with dillon and turner (maybe) still goin to one of those teams, lynch could fall if all this happens
    of course there are numerous other possibilities that could happen because of this move

    why would Patriots waste a round 1 pick on a RB? ARe we not happy with Maroney? Lynch isnt a compliment to Maroney..hes like Maroney and many comparsions get made. Maroney is faster, quicker and stronger than Lynch.

    Why would the Buccaneers trade Cadillac? He's had injury problems, sure, but he's shown he can be very productive when he's healthy. Two years is barely enough chances for someone with a lot of natural talent.

    yeah thats stupid to consider..Cadillac is very talented..their OL needs some straightening out to do but they are heading the right way

    Sammy Morris is no schmuck - I'm fine with him and Maroney as our top two with Faulk in his normal role and an emergency starter. I'd take a RB later in the draft and hope to get lucky but I don't want a first round RB.

    i think you guys are missing my point of this thread
    i just meant my scenario as one possibilty of how a trade that you would think would have no further impact on the league, end up actually having this huge domino effect on many teams

    i for one love sammy morris and think he'll make a great duo with maroney
    that being said, if lynch was there at 24 and nelson and willis arent, id take lynch in a heartbeat

    FWIW, Lynch to the Pats at #24 is what happened in the PatsFans interactive mock draft. Lynch was choosen over Meachem and Chris Houston. Mavfan2390 picked McCauley at #28.

    I wouldn't rule it out in real life. Maroney-Lynch tandem is scary for opposing defenses.

    If the Pats selected Lynch in the first round, this would be by far the dumbest decision since the Lions selected three recievers in the first round 3 years in a row.

    I don't know about that. The Giants trading for Eli Manning looks a lot dumber than either of those trades.

    Not that I don't agree with your point. I don't think that a Maroney-Lynch cmobination would be scary because they have essentially the same skills. Reading Lynch's draft profile.

    That sounds very, very familiar to me. It isn't scary if you're facing two of the same exact thing because you can just gameplan against one.

    yes but even though its optimal to have two running backs with different styles that are both equally efficient, its still almost as good to have two of the same styles
    if they can both get it done its not a bad thing
    the biggest problem of having only one running back on your team (over the season) is that they wear down

    maroney and lynch on their fifteenth carry late in the game is better than maroney on his 30th

    RB's have the shortest career span and they get hurt easily. We're already going to a zone blocking scheme to accomodate one RB, so here's another one who projects to flourish in the same system. We can't bring a smashmouth type runner (Dillon) and Morris is no sure thing. I have don't have a problem with taking Lynch if he's there. I'd rather take a RB early than a WR. It's an issue of depth.

    imo- the buccs would be better off taking lynch and keeping caddy

    lynch and caddy both arent workhorses

    at auburn caddy shared carries with ronnie brown, and lynch split with jjarringtong 2 years ago, and someone else(dont know his name lo lsorry) last year....

    it showed how caddy isnt a featured back type ...i'd know personally b/c i had him as one of my hb's in my fantasy league....every week i kept saying, "ok this is when caddy has his break out week"

    but every week always disapointed me....

    lol thats a lot of stretching...i dont think the nfl is ready to trade players as freely as the mlb or nba,at least they dotn tend to move players around a lot via trades....

    imo if the raiders signed a released culpepper...they'd be more than happy to take cj....b/c culpepper has a deep arm and reuniting him with moss will only benefit the team

    dont see it happening, but there's always that chance

    i agree.....i still see lynch as a compliment back

    and with more and more 2 back systems coming into the nfl..you never know..

    i think though trading up for lynch is stupid...if he falls...then yeah take him...if he doesnt fall....maybe the pats could pick up a safety at 24 and trade down with the 28 and pick up a late 2nd/early3rd picks and possibly go for a michael bush? lol...

    I think the most interesting part of your list of scenarios is the Culpepper to Oakland part.

    Could Culpepper and Moss be reunited. I say, yes, but not for long. After all, if Oakland gets Culpepper, that means they will draft Calvin Johnson and thus be more inspired to trade Moss.

    IT would be interesting though to see if that combo could rekindle the magic.

    Ya - its not like the last 4 teams playing in 2007 had implemented a duel running back system or anything.
