Are the two greatest Super Bowl franchises potential trade partners?

As trade speculation reaches a fevered pitch in San Francisco; it is apparent that they are in the drivers seat this off season with their fifteen draft picks. They also have arguably the most talented team right now. The 2013 off season, one way or the other; will live in Niners history forever.They will either make the right moves and create a post Montana/Young dynasty winning multiple Super Bowls or make the wrong moves and be forever remembered as the close to a dynasty but no cigar. At the forefront of this speculation are deals that would bring Revis or Asomugha to the Niners for a draft pick package. Most insiders suspect that the Jets floating Revis out on the trade market has more to do with his injury than a desire to rebuild or save money. Revis is scheduled to start running sometime in April. By the time the 2013 draft rolls around Revis' health will still be up in the air. Asomugha on the other hand has missed time for various injuries that were not serious so there isn't a big gamble involved with him from a health standpoint and he could be picked up for far less than Revis. The problem with Asomugha is the serious drop in his production. Many argue it is because of the defensive scheme in Philly but watching him on tape does not support that theory. All of this leads up to one question. Could the two greatest Super Bowl franchises become perfect trade partners? No one can argue about the Niners and Steelers Super Bowl resumes'. The two teams are in completely different places right now. The Steelers have major cap issues for the next two or three seasons and must rebuild with younger players. The Niners on the other hand are standing at the threshold of a dynasty. After much research the Niners biggest need is their secondary, more specifically Safety. What about the draft picks presumed to go to the Jets or Eagles went to the Steelers for Troy Polamalu? Before anyone has a knee jerk reaction I ask you to do the research. Although Revis and Asomugha are good cover guys neither individual has a history of making impact plays that change the outcome of a game. Polamalu on the other hand has made so many of those plays it caused a fire storm argument on a Steelers blog that was unbelievable. The argument was trying to figure out what the top five plays were. Many question the health of Polamalu who has played in 114 of 144 games during his time in the Pro's. Polamalu like Asomugha has never had a serious injury (that required surgery) With the seriousness and time table I think Revis is to much of a gamble. So if you do real research on these players mentioned I think you will see Polamalu to the Niners immediately makes them the front runners to win Super Bowls in 2013 and 2014 seasons and the great thing about it is the Niners can still have an impact draft this year.This deal is not as exiting for Steelers fans but necessary. The thought of moving the most beloved Steeler of all time will certainly draw the ire of Steeler Nation but this one move and the release of James Harrison would end their cap issues and would also give them the flexability to move back in the draft and pick up several young players that could take over in a season or two. No fans like to believe they are not a contender entering any given season but for Steelers fans it is a reality will have to confront now or later but they will definately have to cross that bridge soon. Look at what Polamalu brings to the table. Great leadership, championship experience (3 Super Bowls and many playoff games) and the freakish athleticism that comes once in a lifetime. It seems to me like a no brainer for both franchises. Troy is obviously a first ballot HOF'er. Going to San Francisco and helping bring a second Super Bowl dynasty to the Bay the last years of his career would create a legendary folklore second to none in NFL history.
