What About Mo?

As RB Maurice Jones-Drew runs away from New York Jets defenders, he could be overheard uttering, "La la la la, you will never get this!"

We often hear that to have a great run game, you either need a great line and an average back, or an average line and a great back. Right now, it could be argued that we have an average line and average backs.

But what if we could change that, and really emphasize Ground and Pound(tm) this year?

I'm talking about trading for Maurice Jones-Drew. Forget fixing the right tackle situation; it's doubtful we can get someone good without giving an arm and a leg. MJD is in a tough situation in Jacksonville. He's one of the league's best running backs and deserves to be paid like one, but the Jaguars are refusing to pony up the dough. In return, MJD is holding out and has no intention of playing without a new contract. Well, what if the New York Jets call up the Jags and offer a draft pick or a player (Maybe Dustin Keller)?

This would instantly give us a huge upgrade at running back, and a capable grinder that has more than proven himself. The fact is that MJD is one of the best in the game, and as much as I like Shonn Greene, MJD would be a huge upgrade. And it would solve our right tackle problem.

So, what do you all think? Should we trade for MJD? What would you be willing to give up? I am not saying it's going to happen, but it could for the right price.
