I agree with you completely.

I don't particularly remember the specifics either. But I think that Trotter was a young two-time all-pro from a division rival who led his team in tackles for three straight years and didn't miss a game since he entered the starting lineup his second year in the league. It didn't work out, what with him busting his knee, but I really don't think it was a bad signing at the time.

At this point in both of their careers I think I'd take Trotter over Lewis. Lewis's career is on the backslope, and if you use Trotter correctly he can be a real force!

Mistakes and busts will happen in football, if you could forsee them all there would be a lot less drama.
