YOUR WORST TRADE EVER!!!

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby BrutallyHuge » Thu Aug 31, 2006 8:07 am

I haven't had too many good or bad trades. Each trade I make seems to be okay for both parties or terrible for both parties.

Here's an example:

I give up: DeShaun Foster, Peerless Price, Onterrio Smith
FOR
Santana Moss

It was 2004 week 2: Peerless' 2nd year in Atlanta, Stephen Davis just got injured and Foster took over, and Onterrio was starting because Bennett was suspended for 4 games. Santana Moss was coming off a huge 2003 (1105 and 10TDs).

Results:
Peerless stinks it up as usual
DeShaun tears it up for a game or two before going on IR
Onterrio splits time with Moe and is mediocre
Santana Moss goes from 1105 and 10 to 838 and 5.

Last season I traded Larry Johnson for Warrick Dunn in I believe Week 8, just before Priest Holmes got injured and LJ went on his tear the last seven or eight games of the season. Needless to say, it was a painful second half of the year watching Larry tear it up for someone else.

In my dynasty salary cap league - I signed Anquan Bolden for next to nothing his rookie year. Before the season started I traded him for Lamar Gordon to handcuff Marshall Faulk. :~(

Boldin's contract finally expired at the end of last season.

Last year, i traded Chad johnson for Javon Walker and Kevin Jones before the season started and before walker started talking hold out.

Walker was a pro bowl WR and Jones was the most hyped RB of the season. Lucky for me I also had Tiki and Edge on my team, so I ended up coming in 2nd place.

worst trade was one i didnt make..

last year before the season started i was offered tiki and shockey for joe horn and mike anderson...i turned it down thinking anderson was gonna be huge and horn was coming off his big 04...needless to say i finished one win out of the playoffs and since i had larry johnson on my team having him tiki and gates a the end might have won me the league

I traded Gates in early 04 as well. I had Heap who ended up missing half the year and playing sucky due to injury. But drafting Gates in the 10th round seems like light years ago.

Well I can give you a trade that was horrible but it was great for me.

Remember J. Shockey's rookie season when he had that preseason game where he was running over defenders in his debut game?

Well the next day the one woman in my work league was watching that game and decided that she had to have Shockey. She offered me P. Holmes for him...I still thank her to this day for the championship I won that year.
