But that wasn't the question. Yes, we all know the NFL does not have a lot of trades, especially in the few weeks before the deadline. But yet, NFL teams still do execute trades in this period.....SEE Jets and Browns. The question was....Are you disappointed the Niners were not one of the few teams trading???
To me the answer is an obvious yes. You are either a team on the rise looking for instant starter upgrade...or a team with an eye on the future and rebuilding. So once again, the Niners not being in a trade situation in October, tells me this team STILL is neither a team rising nor rebuilding. Just stuck on a stupid 7 to 9 win goal and hope to sneak in on through a pathetic division.
Really, is that what you gathered out of it? Because that means there are about 30 other NFL teams who are in the same boat as us, who don't want to win in the future.
It could just be that there wasn't a deal out there worth making.
sorry, you are right. I should have been more specific. I am more disappointed because for yet another
season of being in the same boat.....not just this one trading period. Its a pattern with the post Eddie D regime....no balls and a franchise on the slow boat to nowhere. So yeah, since we are a pathetic franchise now with a tradition of losing...f**k it, why not take the fast boat to failure for a change?
