The Falcons turned it around and made no trades of note. Did Baltimore make any trades? Trades are indeed becoming more and more frequent, however, theya re not the end all, be all judge of an offseason, just as free agent pick ups aren't either.

I'm rather impressed by what we have done this offseason, because we focused on getting a few players who are young and on their way up as opposed to those already in their prime or past it(McMichael and Chavous). We focused on getting players who will make our schemes work and we'll do that in the draft as well, I'm sure.
Yea your right

I think we are going to have to turn this thing around a little before your big time free agents start to look at us. As far as trading goes in todayís NFL itís not easy to make deals. Especially when we really donít have anything of value we can afford to give up.
Nice metaphor
