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


McNabb is a glorified Vince Evans .....

Honestly the Coles trade is quite fair. If you'd be getting TO I say take it b/c he's a better WR and Jacksonville isn't even close to be assured to be marginally better than Buffalo.

As for being insulted, yeah I've been there though. Just a few weeks ago I had a guy offer Anthony Thomas and the Packers DEF to me for Kevin Barlow and Michael Bennett. Then I remembered why I hate public leagues, and politely informed him of why I would not ever accept that trade.

There's a guy in my annual $$ league who offers nothing but horrible trades. For some reason though, they sometimes get accepted. And this just encourages him to keep offering horrible trades


One trade he offered me last year was Tyrone Wheatley and Tai Streets for Stephen Davis. And IIRC, he ended up getting Steve Mcnair for Streets and Duce Staley

This one guy won't stop offering me S. Davis and Plax for Tomlinson. Give it up already, you're not getting LT2 that cheaply!!

I hate the quantity for quality guys... Think if they offer you 4 mediocre players that equals one good player....

When will they ever learn, that Jerry Porter, Eddie George, Tommy Maddox, and Kyle Brady do NOT add up to Ahman Green?

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-


I like that idea, I think i'll try doing that next time.

its not insulting-I usually try to offer a trade that is in slightly my favor to begin with because that way I don' tmake a mistake and screw myself over.
when i get offered a trade like that I just offer a lopsided deal back and see what happens cause they are the ones who want to make the trade.
DOn't get angry about that because that just makes teh other owners angry and they will look at you as a bitter loser who thinks everything needs to be perfect for him on the first try.
