We need to trade Herschel Walker, er.. Steven Jackson


Why would we trade our only offensive weapon, you ask.  He is a selfless wrecking ball in his prime who racked up good numbers on a bad team against mostly 8 man fronts.  His name couldn't be any better right now.  This is all very true, and this is why we have to trade him.  Logic dictates that by the time we become competitive again, Steven Jackson will be past 30 and we all know what that means for running backs (see LT, Shaun Alexander, and every RB that has ever played in the NFL).  We have proven that even with over 1400 yards that we can still lose, putting to rest the myth that a solid running game will win you many games.  So instead of watching him deteriorate over the next 3 years, why not trade him and get the picks neccesary to rebuild the offense.

If you don't think BIlly Devaney isn't  already considering it, you are crazy.  Don't buy all the smoke and mirrors about Billy not trading Stephen Jackson or being a "fan" of Marc Bulger.  Well he was also a fan of Witherspoon, but he used logic and got something while he still had a chance.  Next year is uncapped which means that there is no acceleration of signing bonuses when a player is traded.  Bundle Stephen Jackson with our extra 5th and we could double dip into the 1st and 2nd rounds.  This would allow us to get our QB AND our Suh, while letting us pick up an (admitingly) NOT Steven Jacksonesque running back in the 2nd...but a back capable of getting 1000 yards. 

The Cowboys traded Walker and built the basis of their superbowl teams.  Sure, this is a different time where you cant get as much in a trade (mostly because of the Walker trade), but it is time to be strategic, not emotional.  That or we will end up like Lions, throwing Barry Sanders into a wall of defenders over and over again because we have no options. 

I'm just sayin..
