Are you serious? McNabb is better than McNair, especially this season considering McNabb got TO and McNair lost McCareins. Plus, you don't have to worry about McNabb downing tons of liquor and getting behind the wheel.


This is what I am talking about. Different owners value different players. Let the proposals fly. If you get an offer you don't like, reject it.
Also, ending the possability of a trade over some percieved slight only narrows your options for improving your team.

If you say so .... but I bet homeboy is making some sort of bong with an empty chunky soup can and taking a toke with A Iverson while TO stands in a towel in a dark corner screaming at a fevered pitch about how great he is and how insulted he was that Jeff Garcia didn't try to violate him. What worries me is that when the banjo started playing nobody started running.

Mac9 will prove again this year that he is head and shoulders above the other guy ...

I really hope you are being sarcastic, cause I take Mcnabb over Mcnair in a heart beat... :-/


99.9% of fantasy players would... But this guy is a Tennessee fan who loves this argument... And he'll continue on and on about it for days and days... Don't get baited into it... Everyone knows McNabb is a WAY better fantasy option this year than McNair (except a select few folks who live near Nashville)...

But this guy is a homer to the extreme, and I would venture to guess he'll also tell you that Mason, Bennett, and Calico are the best WR trio... He may tell you about how Chris Brown is going to be a top 5 back this year, and he might even try to tell you that Steve "multiple-injury" McNair is some sort of comparison to Peyton Manning because of the Co-MVP thing last year... Who knows?

Write about the time I started hearing nonsense about "America's Team."

I've never been insulted really. Confused as hell but not insulted. I've looked at offers and said out loud (while by myself) "what is going through his head?"

The worst so far this year Vick for Ahman. A brief history... auction league.. Deuce, Edge, Priest etc... 20 million or higher, Culp and Manning 13M or lower... Ahman 17M and Vick 17M.

The best priced RB in the league for the most overpriced qb in the league. Politley said no thanks.

I have to say...being a girl, the guys last year thought they could pull one over on me and they were sorely mistaken. :-t I think they must have thought that I didn't know much about football and even though it was only my second year, I know more about it than a lot of guys! I was offended, but it only happened once or twice and I don't expect it to happen again...HOPEFULLY!
As for those trade offers, I really would not take Vick for McNair (wasn't it?). I'm not sure if I would go for the Rudi for LT trade, but LT does run behind the SD offensive line and he just isn't in the best situation. Anyhow, don't feel like the only one...people have tried to pull one over on me before as well!
Don't ever underestimate the girls!!

Let's go DAWGS!!

LT is miles above Rudi IMO. Rudi actually (for a reason I never understood after his performance last year) might be backed up by Perry for 8 carries a game. LT also catches a ton and is (ability-wise) the best back in Football IMO. Yes, his line sucks, yes his QB is a rookie (or Brees), yes the recievers are terrible, but in a Dynasty LT is MUCH higher on my sheet then Rudi.

i didnt think the first trade offer was that bad in my opinion...the 2nd one was much worse.

I wouldn't be insulted. I would rather have crappy offers than no offers. Just make sure you aren't the dummy they are hoping you are and let them put one by you.

Thankfully the people in the forum will let you see the light.

haha-
Actually when you get a ridiculous trade, like last year someone offered me Chris Chambers for Jamal Lewis, I usually counter with something like - Larry Johnson for LT2-

They get the point and offer something a little more in the middle-
