    Navorro Bowman for Jo-Lonn Dunbar on defense. While I like the prospect of Earl Thomas roaming the secondary, I don't think that McLeod is the weakest part of the D.

    Offense is a little trickier...but I think I have to go with Russell Wilson over Sam Bradford. I mean absolutely no offense to Sam, but I think that Wilson could definitely succeed with our offensive line, running game, and defense. And with four receivers going into their second and third years, we could have a solid passing game as well. And it helps that Wilson seems to be a decent and humble person.

    Fair enough. I'd take Wilson because he has that rarest of qualities- heart. The dude is a leader. Kaepernick could have Robocop's body and not make it because he doesn't have the necessary between the ears. In my opinion, of course.

    Definitely Earl Thomas on D in place of McLeod

    Vernon Davis in place of Cook

    OFFENSE
    Add: QB Russell Wilson
    Subtract: QB Sam Bradford

    DEFENSE
    Add: S Earl Thomas
    Subtract: S Rodney McCleod

    I only did Wilson/Bradford because Wilson is tough, smart, and is a winner. Good leader as well.

    He did say one from offense and one from defense, although I like your choices even if they violated the original premise.

    I would take Vernon Davis and release Cook, and Patrick Peterson and release Johnson.

    Surprising how many disagree with me, but I am utterly convinced if we swapped Bradford for either Wilson or Kaepernick, the Rams would decline and Bradford's new team would improve.

    Their success is a lot more about their supporting cast and QB de-emphasizing scheme than it is their talents.

    Was considering Unger, but hopefully Wells can finally stay healthy and I like Jones a lot, so decided against it.

    I'll take Sam over Crapondick every day. But Wilson is tempting.

    Ultimately though we're in desperate need of a WR, so it comes down to Floyd vs Crabtree for me, and i think Crabtree is a much bigger part of Crapondick being good than Floyd is Palmer so I guess I've got Crabs. Don't mind who you take.

    D: Petterson is an easy choice, the difficult bit is who does he replace? I'd probably opt for Jenkins.

    hmm

    Floyd or Fitz for Quick
    Earl Thomas for McLoed

    but to be perfectly honest I'm happy with our squad at the moment

    Thomas for McLeod on D

    Fitzgerald for Quick on O

    And the refs that SF gets over the bums we get.

    On a side note to this thread ... In a way, I was kinda hoping to have brought in Joey Browner when he was released. Added size to the secondary and his knowledge of the Seahawks defense.

    Wow some of the players subtracted here...are amazing. Trumaine Johnson was the Rams' best CB last season. Sam Bradford is just as every bit as tough, intelligent, and a leader as Russell Wilson.

    You gotta take Earl Thomas over Rodney McCleod.

    On offense, though I'm gonna be different and select Michael Floyd over Brian Quick (those Brian does have his ability).

    Thomas for McLeod and Michael Floyd for Givens. I like Fitzy. But I'd rather a reciever that will be around a while and hasn't reached full potential yet.

    If you don't split it between the Seahawks and the Niners and weaken both teams your just insuring one of them sweeps the other IMO,strategery!

    I also think taking an AZ player is sort of futile I could see them going 0-6 in the division this year and still be a decent team with whoever you rob from them.

    Rest of story, letting Bradford leave NOW that he's got this much talent on offense is just plain futile,I swear the second to last player I let off this team is Sam, Quinn being THE untouchable and IMO if you asked this Q on all the other divisional forums he'd be numero uno by a mile ,he is IMO the best player not just on our team but in the division,considering ability, durability, age, keeping his nose clean he's got it all.
