If you could “stay focused” on simply my last post that would be my question that I don’t see an answer for in the last four pages?
Why limit yourself just because you think we can’t improve through trading a player on our team?
Pretty simple question? Lol
Im not sure what you're looking for. You responded to my initial post about everyone wanting to trade our player(s) with a post about two instances of trades that improved our team, where one wasnt an actual trade and the other wasnt a trade that involved an existing Vikings player. Then, you further shifted gears to qualify the Jared Allen deal as a part of this discussion, talking about not limiting ourselves in acquiring talent by using draft picks.
The team has always used draft picks to acquire veteran nfl players. So, there really isnt a response to THAT part of your question, since we already do it. So, back to my original question, which wasnt posed, but has been asked countless times on this board, how does trading one of our existing players make us better and why is THAT particular action considered better than anything else?
I'm not looking for you to answer that, but that's what my question is all about. And honestly, I wasnt really thinking a discussion would ensue, and certainly not one that would immediately veer off topic.
Hate the message, not the messenger.
Enjoy the process; crave the goal.
