Got offered Turner, Calvin Johnson, and Schaub for Brady and Ronnie Brown.
This seems like a no brainer to me but I'm having such a hard time clicking "accept".
I'm not sure I think Turner is going to put up ridiculous #s like he did last year. Last year those big games were against teams with horrible run defenses. Their schedule isn't as much of a cakewalk this year.
Schaub is injury prone and he's already playing with a sore ankle, and despite a weapon like Andre Johnson, I'm concerned he's not going to be all that productive? He's missed 5 games each the last 2 years. I have Joe Flacco as my backup and I like him better than Schaub this year.
While Calvin Johnson has proven he can put up numbers despite playing for the Lions, how consistant can that really be?
I'm having a hard time giving up the potential explosive upside Brady has with an improved recieving core with the addition of Joey Galloway and another decent option in Fred Taylor.
On the other hand, that would leave me with Deangelo Williams and Michael Turner as RBs, Steve Smith, Calvin Johnson as WRs, Antonio Gates at TE, and Anquan Boldin as my WR/RB utility slot.
It could be worth leaning on Flacco for this and Shaub wouldn't be a bad backup
I think i would do it. It would take a lot to get me to give up Brady, but thats alot. Calvin would have had a 70 yard score yesterday if the refs didnt mess it up big time, called him out where he clearly didnt step out. Turner should be a RB1 and Flacco and Schaub can fill in the gap. I think I would do this. And you cant really go by one week. By the end of the year i wouldnt be surprised to see Schaub with better numbers than Flacco at all. Either way, go make the trade.

Well even without seeing your roster I would say take this deal. I know that Shaub is a downgrade from Brady, but Turner is a big upgrade over Brown and you are getting Calvin. Take this deal now before he comes to his senses and realizes what he did.
Megatron was a leading WR last year with DAUNTE CULPEPPER THROWING THE BALL. Oh, wait, sorry, 50% of the time it was Dan Orlovsky!!!!!! I've had Megatron for three years now, get him every year, freaking love him. Bastard is automatic and plays every game.
Turner, yeah, you could say he won't be like last year, but that's a hell of an offense in Atlanta now with Gonzo and Ryan and White all together. Having a piece of the main running threat isn't a bad thing, and he'd be a solid RB paired with whoeevr you're pick 1 was.
Schaub is just a dice roll... great upside, lot of risk as well with the injury background, but I'm still very high on Houston being a top offense this year. They'll be playing from behind all year and they have a #1 WR in AJ.
You give up Brady, whos very solid but 1 guy and not unparalleled this year and Ronnie Brown, who looks like crap on a team with a QB who can't throw 20+ yards (hey, I love Penny, but it's true).
So... do it. You're getting better value than you're surrendering, just get a solid QB2 off the wire to back-up Schaub if you can.
