A Green


Who on earth is going to trade Gonzo for some garbage just because his stats after week 3 don't look so good?

Look at previous years. He's about where he always is after a few weeks. slow starter, always.

Ahman Green probably is a buy low candidate, and then he can sit on your bench after you trade for him as the Packers struggle to their worst season since Favre was in college.

He sucked at the end of last season, and his QB is David Carr. The same David Carr that is jacked about the new system they implemented. Haha, what a maroon! I love when players get excited about a new "improved" system. Yo, David, you still have the same offensive line and you are still David Carr. I don't care if AJ goes for 150 and 2 TDs this week, I will not eat my words. Why? He will put up a goose egg the next week, just like he did last year.

Jamal Lewis is a very good buy low candidate. Ashley Lelie has been brutal, he's basically AJ to me. I think AJ is held in a higher light though, so you can get him for probably pennies on the dollar.

My biggest buy low right now is Jamal Lewis. That team is designed to get him 20+ rushes a game... Unless they are losing on purpose so they can draft Leinart (not a bad idea).

Haha, what a maroon!


Anyone else catch the irony?

Anyway, I agree with Greatest. Give this guy a chance. See what the new, simpler (you know Carr loves that) offense does for him. If not, foulballstrike, I'll trade you Javon Walker for him.

I believe that's an old school Bugs Bunny quote. Foulball gets a point for cartoon cred. As for AJ, I think it's best to wait and see ... some buy low guys are crummy after 3 weeks of play. AJ has only 2.

And you think that's going to change?

Portis' value is as a RB that'll get solid yardage (albeit inconsistently) without many TD's. That's where his value was pre-season as well, nothing has changed.
