In honor of the NBA trade deadline, we asked you to give us your blockbuster trades if you were the GM of your favorite NFL team for a day by tweeting #ImtheGM to @nfl on Twitter or commenting on Facebook. By the day’s end you gave us some outstanding and interesting responses. To pay tribute to the awesome (and savvy) fans of the NFL, we’ve highlighted some of the best and boldest GM ideas below:
Giving up one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time for Flacco and Rice? Unless you’re making this deal after a long happy hour, this one doesn’t make too much sense.
Hmmm… not sure the Redskins fans would be too pleased with this deal, considering Romo threw as many interceptions in two games against the Redskins as RG3 threw all year.
This… actually makes a lot of sense. Harvin would love the spotlight of the Big Apple, until he drops a game-winning touchdown and is pummeled by the New York media for weeks after.
A dynamic running back would make Aaron Rodgers even better, a scary thought for the rest of the NFL. But wouldn’t you want to keep the coffers stocked to pay Rodgers instead of inheriting one of these running backs’ salaries?

Well, now let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. Another play-making wide receiver could make DangeRuss even more dangerous on Sundays.
Why not a younger deep threat like Bowe or Wallace? But I guess you wanted someone with less emotional baggage and gives it his all every play like Randy Moss.
Sandcastle to the 49ers might be more likely than some of the trades suggested here, but kudos for shooting so high!
Harvin would certainly help the Seahawks offense, as long as the constant rain in Seattle doesn’t give him too many migraines.
Let’s not forget Reed used to play for Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. He would probably relish the chance to lead Chuck’s defense once more.
Alex Smith and Montee Ball could help energize the Jets offense, but who would Smith throw it to? Cordarrelle Patterson in the first might make more sense than Jordan if you’re focused on retooling the offense.
