I would have liked to see them trade DE Cliff Avril for a running back of PT's level, but who am I?

From a Saints perspective, I wouldn't trade PT ... Ivory or Cadet maybe, but not PT.
Dang! Your team has some of the longest nicknames I've ever seen. They should get guys with names like "Tank" or "Moose".

I would trade Ingram before PT. PT is proven and Ingram is not. I would take a second for Ingram and keep PT, Sproles, Ivroy and Cadet.

Someone else said it in another thread. No reason for Detroit to mess with that. Heck, we're not going to be able to keep them all - at least I think one is going to be gone. I'm sure the Lions will wait until all the cuts have happened.

The Vikes seem have improved their backfield quite a lot based on the preseason games, but, on the other hand, their run defense have left a lot to be desired for, so I do think the Lions should at least try to have some type of an effective run offense if they plan on winning the NFC North.

Re: Could we trade Pierre to the Lions?

The thing is, both PT and Sproles have skill sets that are near perfect matches for our offensive scheme. Finding that once is hard enough, replacing it is virtually impossible. The coaches and the front office know their value to this team so there is no way they will be traded. And on a side note, I remember hearing this same kind of talk about Deuce which I also vehemetly disagreed with .

I'd do it for a 3rd rounder.
