I wouldn't do it. McCoy has just been too good this year, and will continue to be as long as Vick and his receivers are healthy. Mendenhall will get better, but the Steelers are having some O-line problems that will take a while to sort out.

I like Stafford a lot, but I feel the hit at RB is just too much, especially with Mendy having his hammy issue now.

tough one, I like Stafford and he has looked good, so far. But the problem is McCoy has been so good this season that you should be able to get a consistent QB in return, but it seems as it is down to this. I do think Pittsburgh will patchwork something together to get that O-Line to somewhat work though I don't think it will really be "fixed" till next season. I think Mendy will be fine and he will get his touches. So I would go ahead and do the trade but would also recommend picking up Issac Redman as a handcuff for Mendy. Because it is easier to deal with a RB that is not producing then it is dealing with QB that is not producing, so you are getting Stafford who has been putting up good numbers and not have to worry about Ben, yes you give up McCoy but Mendy should get better as the season progresses.

Are passing TD's the same amount as rush/rec TD's? If so I like the deal to upgrade you at QB. I think Mendenhall can only get better from here. Y'all could also both throw a WR in the deal where maybe you get a small upgrade there...


Thx 4 help w/ mine

As you can tell from the scoring, scoring is very QB friendly. 5 point bonus for passing over 300 yards, 1 point for every 5 passing attempt and another point for every 5 completions, etc.

I'd hang on to mccoy, you're not going to be able to make those points up elsewhere. He's just too good. Mendy is hurt, steelers look awful, i just don't think he's going to find much success this year. top5 RBs are really precious. i think you need to get more value for him.

If you're this hesitant to execute the trade, then that means (regardless of what everyone in this forum thinks) you shouldn't do it.

sounds like you really want to hang onto shady ... SO ... might I suggest shopping around another piece of your team for a lower tiered (but serviceable!) QB like Eli or Ryan. And pick up a Hasselbeck or a Campbell to use as an emergency backup.

Don't give up a stud RB for an upgrade at QB. I know its not convential but if you play matchups there are alot of decent starting QBs this year that are available on waivers.
