I TRADED DWAYNE BOWE AWAY FOR MARION BARBER.
My roster now has
QB Jay Cutler
RB Gore, Barber, Tomlison, K. Smith, and Beanie Wells
WR Calvin Johnson, Steve Smith (car), Sidney Rice
TE V. Davis, G. Olsen
DEF- Miami, SF
However I am somehow just 4-5 w/ this talented roster and tied for the final playoff spot @ the moment.
2 questions: did I win this trade? and how am i only 4-5 w/ this talented roster?
I think its about even. You should consider picking up Chris Chambers off the waiver wire. Bowe has been inconsistent, and I don't think that Chambers is a one-week wonder. He's been waived, staring unintentional retirement in the face, so he's hungry, and Cassel looks eager to get it to him.
I have never been a Bowe fan, and there is some hope that Calvin soon will have whatever big games he's going to get this year.
Barber is the #1 back in name, but with Jones and Choice as swiss army knife options, he is not the Barber of years past. However, I do think that you made out ahead a little.

We play 2 rb's and 2 wr's w/ a flex option (rb/wr).
I'm working on a trade noe that involves me trading away beanie wells for derrickl mason to balance my roster a little more.
But I traded for marion b/c bowe seems like he only produces if he gets in the endzone w/ low yardage out-puts and tough match-ups and LT has some tough match-ups and has been struggling recently. Barber seems posed 4 a big game.
But i appreciate the insight and will take that into consideration.
