Trading Rivet cost us a playoff spot in 2007, would you still make the trade?

I think the poster you're responding to, while disrespectful, actually acknowledged this 'one foot in one foot out' claim of yours in his post by asserting that the world is not black and white. In fact, I would argue that the vast majority of teams--and particularly the successful ones--do indeed have this 'one foot in, one foot out.' More specifically: they look to win now with an eye on team-building and the future.
This trade of Rivet increased the franchise's assets in the short and long-term (since Rivet was on his way out, given his position with the coaching staff at the time), while being a good general team-building move.
