I am for hire as a consultant for the right price! It is hard to win in this league, and to gain multiple championships is even more difficult, only those in the Hall of Fame such as myself can take credit for such a high accomplishment. Guys like Warner,cant figure it out, even though he is on top now, he will finish in third. There is a secret to winning in this league. If you give me your first round pick next year ill break it down.

Guys, I just submitted a change to my free-agent requests for this week to DB.  So, what you will see when the site automatically turns over at 9:00 p.m. (EST) is not correct.  But, DB can verify that I got them in to him on time!  Thanks!

I lost also, dont feel bad. Only if Ryan Fitz played, that would of done it for me but all these injuries blow. Its 50% luck that you can field a team that can make it though the season. Im out Vick ballard, Julio Jones, James Jones, Arian Foster went out yesterday, this Cutler going down didnt help Brandon marshall. A lot is luck, well see how it goes, and the freaking bye weeks suck ass also

WE ALL deal with them, Danny.  Actually, your list is not that bad.  I read two season-enders.  I myself had three crushers: two preseason, Danario Alexander and Michael Crabtree, and Brian Hoyer, the week I had him in my lineup, which cost me that game.  We are all managing the two-to-four week dings and suspensions.  An objective analysis of your situation indicates that your situation vis-ą-vis injuries and suspensions is not at all special.  Indeed, my situation is not special, either.  ...  Luck, luck, luck... Eh...  It is about how you respond, and in the case of Julio Jones you responded very well with a fantastic trade for yourself.

Damn, a 6th rounder for a starting QB, Feder?  Nice move, you little bitch.  
 
Guess I got lazy and didn't both to call Trout after I emailed Travis the week Locker got hurt to offer a 2nd rounder for the Fitzpatrick pick and he never wrote back and instead traded the pick for a 4th.  I guess I know better than anyone what it's like to be at the bottom and not give a shit at this point.
 
Figured Trout would've held the pick this week so I didn't bother.  Guess I am a little bitter especially after that deangelo TD.

i disagree, it is a filler for one week, not a starting back. Josh Freeman probably be back the next week. He doesnt need qbs and since he has not shot in making a run, why not on his part, no sweat off his back.

I didn't get an email from anyone offering a 2nd rounder.  That would indeed have been tasty.  But, sadly, no such offer came through.
 
By the way, I'm not purposely tanking, if anyone is wondering given the perfect 0-12 record.  I've seen 4, maybe 5 games all year -- YEAR -- because we recently moved and do not have TV at this point.  So on the average Sunday I don't see any games at all.  I have to rely on internet articles for my information.  On top of that, my guys just haven't shown up this year.  Not as if one or two or three have underperformed: all of them have underperformed.  Except Alex Smith, who's just about meeting expectations (not high ones, either).
 
Besides, tanking is bad strategy.  There's very little chance I'll get the first pick -- given my luck in lotteries -- and even if by some miracle I did I'd undoubtedly make the wrong choice.  I'm not looking forward to having to decide among the possibly many QB rookies next draft.

A 6th-rounder, indeed, is nothing. It is more like what you should get in return for the courtesy compensatory pick back.  However, Ponder could prove to be a liability this week for Danny.  It is not implausible that Danny might be better off having gone with just Brees this week.  I also think that Freeman will get another shot, and that Minnesota is definitely in line to draft one of next year's top-notch quarterback prospects.  All of that having been said, Trout should have gotten more than what is likely to be a late 6th-rounder.  At least a 3rd- or 4th-rounder. But, hey, to his credit, Danny is putting up a fight, wheeling and dealing, and not resting on his laurels!

If im going down, im going down swinging!! If i could just get James Jones back healthy, Cutler back for Marshall and still be in it, ill be good. I thought about going with one qb only but im my opinion for me, Ponder was the best option. I would of given Steve a 3rd rounder or 4th for Thad Lewis, but i see you have big plans for him.

I thought this was a critical week of free agency, especially with all of us bunched together in the standings and all the injuries.  
 
But, more importantly, what is this supposed to mean, DOLFAN?
