    With what Jr. is getting, I thought he was trading with dad again. :)

    You know, after that trade with Junior, both of our teams went on fire....leading to 1st and 2nd place in the regular season standings....not that that will get you anything...A true win-win trade, though.

    I think the Junior-Mogilny trade will help both teams....unfortunately....

    As long as both teams are TRYING to improve, as I do believe is the case here, I may have an opinion but I do my best to try to stay out of it. We usually don't really know the make up and needs of somebody else's squad. Mowgli may kick my butt this week with his new players. You never know. This stuff is so random, anyhow.

    The zinger was funny, though.

    Hey, that's kind of funny.

    This week:

    Mowgli vs. Shere Khan.

    I sure hope it turns out differently than it did in the jungle book. :)

    Me and Jr were proposing a couple of similar trades back and forward before I accepted this trade. I won't reveal my monster formula for evaluating this specific trade since I'd have to kill you all if I did so but I was very strong at RB with I think something like 4 of the top 10 ranked RB last week in the weekly Yahoo rankings and I wanted to strenghten the QB pos. Jr obviously wanted to strengthen his RB situation judging by his trade offers and I think this trade accomplishes both of our objectives.

    If someone is willing to trade a RB or WR for Cutler or Schaub either of those two guys are on the market right now.

    You don't change the ending of a classic story like that.

    It used to be my favorite Disney cartoon. But that has all changed today.

    In baseball......Bill got lucky to finish in 3rd place.
    Inge simply rode the crest of the wave into the sunset............gravy.............

    this proposed trade is shockingly similar.

    OK. RG3 has been inserted into my starting lineup. We will see if the first two games were a mirage or not very soon. This should be fun to watch.

    Dammit Nemo. Why the hell was Brees throwing a TD to Graham when it should have been Ingram punching it in from the 1? :swear2:

    Drath's team is amazing. Give him the trophy now. We are all playing for second place.

    Amazing ...yes...amazing how many of my best guys I lose.

    Forte week 2

    Spiller week 3

    You can't win when that stuff keeps happening.

    Plus Vick is sucking. That hurts half my starting lineup.

    Stop whining. You could take just two of your players (Jamaal Charles, Calvin Johnson) and you would be beating half of the league right now.

    A bad week for me so far. I'm missing projections left and right.

    Junior's Jets are definitely better after that trade earlier this week.

    OK. Strength of schedule is kicking my ass this year. I'm tired of scoring 135+ pts and losing! :rant:

    Per the recap:

    • Cowardly Lions would not have lost to any other team in the league besides Junior's Jets this week.
    • Junior's Jets would have lost to Cowardly Lions 141.64 - 100.50 had they played each other last week.
    • Cowardly Lions would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as Junior's Jets.
    • If they played every team every week, Cowardly Lions would be 24-3.
    • Cowardly Lions scored 140.50 points and lost. It is the highest losing score in the league this season.
    • Cowardly Lions has beaten their projection every week this season, scoring 140.50 points against a projected 131.17 this week.
    • Junior's Jets would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as Cowardly Lions.

    • The losing stops NOW! I'm going to take out all of my losing frustration on the Mavericks this week! :mob-smiley2:

    • Lame's Legends has underachieved every week this season
