You are correct, KC. I would have been over the roster limit, but would simply have cut d'qwell jackson or whotfever to make room for Peyton.
The only real problem with off-season trades is that they are impossible to manage logistically until after the new season's draft. I didn't see a problem with this one because it was essentially a one for one of two dudes who were gonna be keepers anyway. That is until aj got all noodle-kneed about it.
Yeah, but you don't have the ability to make any roster moves prior to the draft. The only way I could see it working is if the commissioner has the ability (power?) to move players from one team to another or if managers have 365 access to their rosters which would allow them to make moves anytime.
Totally understand KC's problem with it as it's something we should've covered prior to the 11th hour. Don't want to alienate anybody in this league, for obvious reasons and it is a free league, after all.
As to the deal itself, my only problem with it was I thought I was going to be forced to make Peyton my other keeper in order to trade him, thereby losing Cam. That's all. If I was willing to part with McCoy AND Manning to get Foster, I obviously value him higher; cutting it down to a one-for-one wouldn't affect me at all. Had I known that Penso was willing to part with Foster for McCoy straight up from the start, I would've just done that and dropped Manning. EZ game.
Penz is the only one that should be worried. He doesn't get Manning in the deal and when Vick suffers a hamstring tear taking a shit in Week #5, Trent Edwards takes over "behind the helmet." I'm sure that won't impact McCoy's performance...much.
