I traded Roy Williams and Drew Brees for Calvin Johnson and Jake Delhomme. Many weeks ago, obviously. Thought I'd be able to rely on McNabb. Dropped Jake for Thigpen a few weeks ago. Would I trade Brees for Megatron? Of course not, NOW. :)

Anyways, thanks for making that horrible trade (I totally understand why you did) to make me feel better about mine.

Dropping Thomas Jones to pick up a BYE week filler early on this season

Trading Greg Jennings for that guy marked Fragile - aka SJax

Trading Andre Johnson for Braylon Edwards before the season started

Dropping Chris Cooley on his BYE week to pick up the guy who would be better off as a cook - Scheffler

All that and I'm still 10-2 and in 1st place. As much as I've been burnt, I've gotten some good trades as well.

Count me in too as I traded for Sjax in my one dynasty league (lots of player's in deal that included giving up L.White, A.Bradshaw, & my #1)... :,-(

But, despite this, my team has enough "oumph" to make the playoffs, just not sure enough to win it all, though..... :-*

I still think these might turn out OK, but after a truly hearbreaking loss (822 combined yards of offense week 12, and 1 friggin TD to show for it) I may as well vent some more...

Traded Turner & Norwood for Addai for the sweet playoff matchups (after watching Turner go for 117 & 4 against a pretty decent run D, I'm second guessing this one).

Traded P. Thomas & D. Keller for A. Gates.

On the brighter side I traded LJ for Warner (and Mendenhall) week 3 - that has worked out pretty well.

Thus far, I'm extremely dissapointed in my team, which is somehow 7-5...

QB Warner
WR Fitz
WR Marshall
RB LT
RB Addai
Flex Slaton
TE Gates
K Prater
D Tennessee

Hillis, Megatron, Shockey, & Rhodes some names on the bench.

I've got a spot in the playoffs locked up & I'm hoping this team gets hot weeks 14-16.

1. dropping Lance Moore pre-season in a PPR Dynasty :,-( i'n still 9-3 but could really use him right now
2. replacing Deangelo with Maroney at the last minute whatever week that was where Deangelo put up 3 TD's. Playing CJ4.24 over Deangelo a few weeks ago (whenever Deangelo played Oakland and CJ4.24 played the Bears). lost both games, likely will miss the playoffs unless i get some major help

On September 1, 2008, I think 90% of all fantasy football junkies like ourselves would have made that trade...........so I wouldn't feel too bad about it.
