Some people have a brain and they use it. Others choose to ignore the obvious. Which one are you? Just because you don't understand the why and what for doesn't mean that other people do understand what is going on.
So, you are saying that when they drafted Bullock they knew he had a bum leg? HES A KICKER, and when you draft a kicker you expect him to be very good for a very long time. Rackers and Graham are both out of the league now, and Bullock could have easily been seen as an upgrade moving forward all things considered. It simply did not work out that way, it happens. Sometimes peoples brains make things more complicated than they really are.
