I'm a bit late to the party here and don't mean to kick the dying horse while it's down... but I'm with Rob and Dressel on this one. The fact that THOSE two, of all the people in the history of this league, are in such agreement on this issue should really say something about the whole situation. You are off your marbles on this one Justin. Why is it that you have been at the center of almost every controversy we have had in this league since you have joined? We haven't even played through three weeks of the season and already we have had a problem every week.
I hardly seen this as an unfair or one-sided trade. The trade was a 6th rounder for an 8th rounder. Moore has had some decent production in the two years he has played, as Dressel posted: 1700 yards and 18 TD's combined. Those aren't shabby numbers at all. The guy he is being traded for is a rookie who did manage a 100 yard game, with a fumble. Beyond that though who knows? He was a second rounder this year for the Dolphins, so it isn't like he is a really highly touted 1st round back. He could have a great year, he could also have just an average rookie year, no one really knows because he is an unproven rookie. Just because he is a starter and was a high draft pick, doesn't make this a lopsided trade. Two years ago the Broncos took Knowshon Moreno in the 1st round and he was supposed to be our new franchise RB, and up until this point in his career he has been nicked named "No-Gain" Moreno around here by sportswriters. He has managed only or or two 100 yard games and hasn't hit 1000 yds in a season yet either. My point is he hasn't yet lived up to his draft position yet, and who knows if he will? The same thing could happen with Thomas, you just don't know. Lance Moore plays for a great Saints offense with one of the NFL's top QBs in Drew Brees throwing him the ball, that immediately helps his chances in my book. Add in some injuries to the Saints WRs and he gets more playing time too. I really don't understand where any of your whining on this comes from.
I'm not involved in the trade at all either and I hardly find it unfair. If you had proposed this trade to whomever else voted against it I'd be saying the exact same thing... I'm curious to know who else voted against this... and why they don't do such a thing?
