    Should we trade Bennett?

    I know I will get bashed but should we trade Bennett before the deadline? We have O Smith, Moore and Williams. I love what Bennett brings but we dont need 4 backs. O is our every down back. Moore gives us a very good, young and cheap backup and Williams gets the job done.

    We wont be able to keep them all with the Cap and really dont have a use for all of them, get a draft pick or two for a starting back (when healthy). Maybe a 2 and 5th rounder. We are young across the board, Offense and Defense so an extra early round pick would be nice.

    I would have loved to have sent him to Miami with Hovan for Ogunelye. Since we will either lose them or try to negotiate a cheap deal (which someone will pay more).

    Other options, send him to Oakland with Hovan for Woodson. Hovan and Sapp could do nothing together. Then are Secondary would get a little more boost.

    I would use him to either snag a solid Defensive player, or move up in the draft...I'd prefer the "D" help however.

    You're right, we don't need him, and he's hurt for half the season anyway.

    At best right now all the Vikings could get for him would be a third round pick.
    can we clone Bud Grant?

    yes, but it is too late to trade...i think before week 6 was it. trade him in the off season for a great linebacker to help EJ and Newman.

    I would rather see us trade him for a more established player on defense...someone who can contribute immediately and help guide our young defensive players...Ogunleye would have been perfect in hindsight.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Ogunleye hasn't done a whole lot this year. I know he's been hurt, but I think not having a really good proven DE hurts him (Jason Taylor). Not to brag but I kept saying before he got traded that he wouldn't do as well without another great DL on the line with him!

    Oh, get rid of Bennett's pansy ass too!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Trade Bennett in the offseason.

    Use him to trade up in the first round, get a higher pick for a LB or Safety. I think the safeties are week in this years draft but there's alway a couple top notch LB's.
