[quote user="MattMeyerBud"]i would just like to congrats Landon - he has officially become the scumbag of trading in this league.
I've held the title (unfairly for this league) for a while now but the target is now on Lando
Sharick and Pappy - no clue what u guys were thinking
everybody - u owe daven an apology
daven - even though u made him stronger, I think u also made urself strong as long as Beanie doesn't go down.
OK Matt, I went from a QB who was geting me 10 to 15 points/game to one who can get me 25 to 30 points a game. The difference between Jimmy Graham and Gonzo is probably an average of 3 to 5 points per game.</P>
Flacco vs. Stafford......huge gain for me</P>
Graham vs. Gonzo......somewhat of a gain for Lando</P>
Jones vs. Knowshon......wash at best (but it gives me a handcuff maybe for McGahee, if I ever lose either of my starting RB's)</P>
Yes it helps Lando because he really isn't losing anything because he has Vick. But thats what trades are supposed to do. Help both teams.</P>
i disagree that Flacco for Stafford is a huge gain for you. First off, Stafford is on bye this week and you are without a starting QB. Secondly, Stafford is already getting nicked up. Thirdly, while Flacco has DEFINTILY had his stinkers he has also had osme big game games and i'd take the schedule the Ravens have as a QB vs the schedule the Lions have as a QB ANY Time
not to mention your on drugs if u think Graham over Gonzo was only a somewhat of a gain. You bought Gonzo high and he will get low now that Jones is back, White is picking it up, and Turner is effective. Graham is the most targeted PLAYER in the red zone and is putting up top 5 RECEIVER numbers this year as a TE.
Bottom line I don't think u upgraded as much at QB from here on out like u think u did, I don't think u downgraded as little at TE as u think u did, and overall I don't think your minor improvements warranted how much u put Lando over the top. I know you got to do what u got to do, but I mean you also got to keep in mind that even if u get to the finals, you'll now probably have to face him
I have Rivers at home against GB. You know thats going to be a shoot out. But all in all Stafford has outscored Rivers by more than 10 points per game. That makes up for the loss of Graham by a lot.</P>
Jimmy's been great but I'm better that he fades a bit now that defenses have seen him and can roll coverage.</P>
I know its a gamble, but Stafford is the key for me. My QB's have been killing me.Stafford is #4 right now in FF.</P>
And I agree with you, FTU <U>will </U>be in the finals.</P>
i dont think the loss of graham to gain Stafford improves your team as greatly as u do. Definitly not enough to load up a top team as well
I think it was bad moves all around
The trade was essentially Graham for Stafford. The rest is window dressing. I would submit that the difference between Rivers and Stafford isfar greater than Graham and Gonzo. Gonzo is a huge target for Ryan in the red zone. And I can now trade Rivers if he has a big game this week to someone who needs a QB. Because I still need a WR.</P>
your team did not improve as much as u think it did like i said.
Gonzalez peaked i say he has at most two TDs for the rest of the year and he'll be lucky to hit 750 yards on the season
Graham will be 1000+ 10s
Again, the slight better you may of possibly made ur team washes with how much much of a powerhouse u just made lando
Even if you're right (and I don't think you are) thats still not a huge difference. Even if Gonzo (who is past his bye and Jimmy isn't) does get something like 50 yards/game and a couple more TD's and Jimmy gets 70 yards and lets say 4 more TD's. Thats only like 4 points per game difference on average. Stafford is averaging more than 10 points more than Rivers. Plus I still have Rivers for matchups. AND Staffords bye week has Rivers going at home against the second worst passing defense in football with a great offense in GB. All the makings of a passing shootout.</P>
