Trade Shady McCoy/Big Ben 4 Stafford/Mendenhall?

Postby TaDa » Mon Oct 03, 2011 5:21 pm

Shady has been doing awesome for me, but because I went RB RB WR RB in the draft, I got Big Ben for QB. So far, he has sucked, and now looks hurt.

Offer is now Stafford and Mendenhall for my Shady McCoy and Big Ben.

Points wise, Stafford has 123 points, Big Ben 78
Shady has 85, Mendy 25

I like the trade, but I would shop McCoy around a little more and see if you can get a more proven QB. Maybe someone like Stafford, Rodgers, or Brees.

His other QB is Stafford. Let's see if he'd do that.

This would leave me with Mendenhall and Bradshaw at RB, and then Ryan Grant or Starks available as flex options.

He said no to Stafford. Someone that he wants to see playout the year for him.

Shady to Mendy would definitely be a downgrade, but he can't stay as bad as he's been this year, right? If he were to get "decent", that would put the trade in my favor since Cam has outscored Big Ben by double in my league.

I tend to be a bit risky when it comes to making trades and go with my gut (which works out a lot of the time for me....I just traded Andre Johnson right before he got hurt). I would shop around and see if you can get a more proven QB but if you can't I would go through with that trade.

thanks for the help on mine.

That's a tough call. I'm just as eager as you to get rid of Ben. And I like Cam Newton as an upgrade. The problem to me here, is Mendenhall. The Pitt O-line is downright crappy. Plus he has a banged up hamstring. He will get some goal line carries, but I think he's in for a tough year. Just my opinion. I'd pass and keep McCoy.

I actually don't think I would go through with the trade. Newton has been a BEAST so far this year, but I think he regresses once D-coordinators get enough film on him and adjust. I think he ends up being a borderline top-10 QB, so I think that you can get a little more value out of McCoy. I actually think that in the long run that Mendenhall will end up producing, just not near the same level as McCoy. I would keep shopping McCoy for a QB, try to get a little better offer. Thanks for the help on mine.

Yeah I would do it too. Something is wrong with the Steelers. Ben, Mendy, they all are playing like crap. Oh... I almost forgot the O line.. Now Harrison with a broken eye socket..

I would definitely shop around. I do think Newton is an upgrade, but he is very high risk. Mendy is a downgrade. So I would look for other options.
