  1. I like Balwdin, he was impressive last year. In redraft I'm not quite sure how good he'll be, though he could certainly build on a good rookie year. Been trying to get him in dynasties. Gave Malcom Floyd and a future 3rd for him in one league, offered a '13 2nd for Badlwin and the Ravens D and was turned down in another.
  2. Uh, what? What has been documented is he can't play more than one half of an NFL game without getting oxygen.Think he meant this offseason. There has been a lot of positive chatter about Bryant's work ethic improving. Not saying it's true, but maybe it's worth half a point. A third? A tenth?
  3. Dez assaulted his Mom. Has Britt topped that?Cumulatively, Britt wins the awful person award. DUI pulling up to an Army base is so offensively stupid, I really can't compute how that stacks up with beating up your mom.I suppose the latter is worse by a good margin, but I still reserve some doubt as to what actually happened. Until then, Britt wins by default.They're both kind of idiots. I mean it's crazy. When's the last time you heard about Larry Fitzgerald getting into trouble? It's so incredibly easy NOT to get arrested, and yet these guys simply can't stop. I want neither on my team, I don't care if I miss out on a break-out season.
  4. Do you really have proof of exactly what occurred? Seems like you're hitting a low by jumping to conclusions before all the information has come out. I think Dez is a tool but I have no idea what really happened yet (and I'm assuming neither do you).
  5. No way. I wouldn't do it for a 2, but I won't argue with someone that does.Your Browns homerism is showing here. Mendenhall isn't elite, but he just turned 25 and has top-10 fantasy season under his belt, which was accomplished on a team that really hasn't provided much in the way of run blocking. He's also a UFA after this year. He's easily worth more than a 2nd. I think that getting him for a mid-late 1st is a steal. He's a solid young RB and ACLs aren't anywhere close to a death sentence any more.His top 10 season was based on a large number of carries (3.9 ypc). I think he's worth a late 1st/early 2nd because he's "pretty good", but I don't think he's close to an elite talent and could easily end up in a major time share for the rest of his career. Just my opinion though.
  6. How do you know the 3rd will net a good player next year? There's a pretty high bust rate for 3rd rounders.There's a high probability anyone will be a bust, including Gordon. The team that takes him now is making a big risk without knowing who will be available next year. I view him as a project who won't make much of an impact right away so I'd rather keep the 3rd and see if there's a better player for the team in the 2013 draft. Unless he could be had for a 4th I don't think he's worth it. Since it's a win-now league though I expect someone to use a 3rd on him.Gotcha. I guess I can understand this, though if you like this guy's game I think a 3rd is fine - there's risk either way.

  8. I really doubt he's top 5 with Witten/Austin still around. He may be more productive than both of those guys, but there are too many options for Dez to be completely dominant IMO. If you look at the top few WRs every year, usually they are clearly the go-to guy or have one other great target - Dallas has three very good targets, and I think it's one too many.
  9. But he's lazy, so he's got that going for him. ;)It's weird - on paper, there is a ton of red flags, but my gosh on the field he looks pretty darn good.
  10. I agree Dez doesn't seem to get the respect he deserves. He's a very good player. However, I think his situation is going to cap his ceiing to a certain extent for the near future - Miles Austin is very good as well and will still be heavily involved, and Witten is a terrific security blanket. It's rare that 3 receivers from the same team all end up as top fantasy scorers, so I think Dez doesn't have the upside guys like AJ Green or Calvin have because they may not be as much a focal point of the offense.
  11. I think your'e wrong here and saying it's a "moronic" action to take for simply rejecting a trade is baffling to me. Talking trades takes time. If you're in more than one league and dealing with people who are obviously fishing, then it's almost always simply wasted time. If I get an absolutely awful offer I simply reject. If they follow up asking why I will send a short note, and once in a while it leads to something constructive, but far more often than not these types of players are simply out to rape someone, and I don't have the time or patience to work things out with unreasonable people. For example, a few days ago I was offered Donald Driver and a 3rd round pick for Victor Cruz by a guy who has never one sent me a remotely reasonable offer. I just don't have the time to deal with that. Maybe it's "moronic" from your point of view but I don't view it that way at all. I prefer to spend my time talking trade with reasonable people.
  12. Assuming the 2013 1st doesn't project to be in top 3 or 4 picks give me the other side because Cruz in my opinion is the best player in that trade.I would take the Cruz side in a heartbeat.
  13. Rivers was disappointing in 2011. He'd been fantastic before that. I'd still take him over Eli and Ben if I were starting a team from scratch.No you wouldn't, but that was a pretty solid sales job you tried to pitch.Yes he would. So would I. So would many others.You might say so and provide lip service, but drop you into a GM spot and its never-ever gonna happen.I disagree, and I'm an Eli fan. Rivers is a terrific QB, and I could see people grabbing him over Eli.
  14. I don't think he's saying those two are nearly as good as Foster, just that the system made them look better than they were. Like when guys like Mike Anderson and Olandis Gary were putting up very good numbers in Denver. Were they as good as Clinton Portis? Not even close, but they produced in that system. Foster isn't a product of his system, he's a very good talent, but his system may help his numbers.
  15. That will be the issue. How can you convince your fan base that Tebow is not the future when he keeps winning games albeit in unusual/unsustainable fashion. But the kid is definitely good for the game.IMO he is the opposite. I watched every snap of last night's game and will never watch another Tebow game unless I hear he is improving. It was a simply awful viewing experience for me. I have nothing against the kid but I refuse to watch that kind of offense no matter how gritty and determined he is. Would you rather watch a game where Green Bay beats someone 35-7? Sports is beautiful because of the unexpected. Tebow truly defines the unexpected on every given seriers. Watching the game within the game last night between the Jets defense and the Broncos offense was just one of the many story lines that made the game more than enjoyable for a number of fans. Let alone if you would have stopped watching this "awful viewing" expeience you would have missed a QB "will" his team down the field for a 95 yard drive with 6 minutes on the clock to go ahead and win. Tebow and the unexpected either for the good play or bad play will make the Broncos a team that gets coverage more than a lot of teams. I just didn't enjoy last night's game in the slightest. I don't think he's a QB at this point in his career, and yes, I'd rather see a blowout than what I witnessed last night. No interest in watching 3 plus hours hoping for 4 minutes of entertainment. But that's just me.

  17. Couldn't any injury technically happen to anybody?
  18. Who would be the guy you actually want? Who is there worth being patient for? Only one team will get Andrew Luck next year.
  19. Reggie Wayne was WR3 last season and is 32. Andre Johnson was WR7 and is 30. Does this offer really belong in this thread?The question was the worst trade you have ever been offered. That trade isn't fair so it could qualify.What would it take along with Reggie Wayne for you to trade Andre Johnson? I would require something significant. AJ is a top 3 dynasty WR, Wayne isn't in the top 15.Wayne is ranked #10 on footballguys dynasty rankings right now. I wouldn't give AJ for Wayne but in no way do I think it qualifies as a "horrible" trade.
  20. I like Britt but we don't even know who his QB is short term or long term, so how can he really be Elite? QB play is critical to WR play.Fitzgerald still had 90/1100 in 2010 with garbage at QB....Fitz is truly a HOF type talent. Britt isn't. If you think Britt is HOF talent, then yeah, get him no matter the price and hang onto him no matter what. I don't think he is that much better than about 20 other WRs in the league right now.Britt did well with both Young and Collins, so I'm not overly worried about his (lack of) QB. I don't know about HOF but to me he's one of the best young talents in the game right now.
