Dillon and Vick for Warner

In a keeper league (which I've never been a part of), young talent is just as important as winning. I don't know how many people you get to keep every year either.

Trading Kurt Warner, to me, is just not a good idea. Although Vick is a nice young QB, Warner probably has 3 good years left in his arm before an appreciable drop in production. That makes you ask yourself, "Will the Falcons be anywhere near as good as the Rams within the next few years?"

On the other hand, Corey Dillon will be a great back for at least 3 more years, and E. Smith isn't getting any younger. LaMont Jordan will slowly start getting touches away from C-Mart, but not this year. T. Hambrick looks like the real deal down in Dallas. And Thomas Jones is a toss up, although I lean to not panning out.

If it was me, I would do the trade. Testeverde should have a good year. Vick is primed to show everyone how good he really is. Do it. It could be the steal of the next couple of years. And Corey Dillon is the man.

Don't do the deal unless you want to build for next year.

Warner is great, but there have been some wispers about he thumb bothering him again this more hit on that hand and he'll be out for a while! BUT, you do have a greta back-up with Testeverde, he seems ready for another good year, PLUS Vick has a huge up-side...even if he doesn't have a good year this year (which I think he will!), he has a great future ahead of him!

I also think that Dillon would be a great addition to your team! He also has a great future ahead of him, and should be able to help you out this year too!

I's do the Trade!

You may want to get some young talent for Testerverde.I'll come back to him in a minute.Emmitt,you may want to do the same for him.Now,possibly,you may want to trade both Testerverde and Emmitt for a young rising QB like say Quincy Carter,Mike Vick,Drew Brees,David Carr,any of these young talentd players can help you out in the long-run,while Emmitt and Vinny are home sittin in retirement.Hambrick can fill in solidly for Emmitt and is the Cowboys future player,he's a very good player to have if you have Emmitt this season.Your WR corps looks very good,and young.Cowboys are a defense on the rise.Ok,now for trade offers,I wouldn't do that trade,and here's why:Vick IS a young talent QB,and IS exactly what you want to look for in a keeper league,but NOT for the best QB in the game currently.To get Vick you may want to give up veterans,like I said,like Testerverde,and Smith,not the most valuable player on your team!
