still makes me angry. we needed and were taking derrick, there was a 50/50 chance he'd fall to us if we were lucky, and everybody knew we'd grab him if he was there. but nooooo we out-smarted the draft and traded back a few picks, just enough to miss our player and reached on a tough to predict defensive lineman.

And TJ was not a 6 year starter, might want to look up those starts there noxiousdog. He was a bust and is more of a loser than most NFL players, and certainly Romo.
Ah, you're right. He didn't start for the Chargers.

On the weekend, I caught a segment with TJ on there. The part where he was discussing the Riley Cooper incident (beginning at the 11 minute mark) was great...........especially where he discusses the "rehab" part of it (beginning at the 12 minute mark).

I finally was able to dig it up. http://houston.cbslocal.com/2013/08/...ootball-field/

Making waves now because he called Tony Romo a loser. He's one to talk, biggest bust of a draft pick in our history and that's saying a lot. He needs to check himself before he goes around calling anyone a loser.
Romo has 10 times the heart that TJ had. I'm convinced that TJ never really wanted to play. At least that's the way he played.

I can't put joppru on that list. It wasn't because he sucked ..he just was in the tub.

Jacoby jones...time will tell if we blame the player or ST coaches here.

He was pretty entertaining. I like his explanation on being a "bust". He said something along the lines of, "You say I only got 3 sacks in the pro's? Well, I only got two sacks in college and then I get drafted IN THE FIRST ROUND? That ain't on me, that's on the front office." I lol'ed at that.

I liked Tj....... he was one of the only players here with any attitude.

We drafted him out of Florida State as a 3-tech... a UT...... but we put him on the nose in a 4-3, or lined up on a Tackle in the 3-4. It would have been interesting to see what Wade could've done with him, playing where Antonio is now.

Of course, that may have been due to his weight. He was a svelte 290 at FSU, but I don't think he ever played for us under 300lbs.

I guess 3rd round picks or better are players you should get something from. The Texans got zip from Morency and Molden, so they would qualify. Caldwell was a disappointment. I think everyone else has been covered.

I do like Harris, but if I were to make a poll, I'm sure some folks would say he should be there.

Okam..... 5th round notwithstanding..... I expected a lot from him. My br in laws are huge UT fans & I heard so much sht about Okam it ain't funny. He was my darkhorse.... lemonade player that never amounted to anything.

I thought the Travis Johnson pick was horrible when it was made, and expected very little out of him. Does that make him not a bust?

I don't understand why people have all of this anger toward someone like Travis Johnson. Was he supposed to acknowledge he was overrated in 2005 and turn down a first rounder's contract? Being a poor football player doesn't automatically dictate that you have uninformed football opinions. Besides that, it doesn't take a winner to know that Tony Romo is a loser.

If you want to be angry at a commentator whose out of his depth, remember that the NFL Network still pays Charley Casserly for his draft analysis.

^^^ This.

TJ seems like a cool guy. It's not really his fault he was drafted too high. He was what he was.

I blame Casserly.

Casserly laid some eggs as all GMs do in the Drafts, but he also drafted Andre Johnson & Mario (instead of Reggie Bush), DeMeco, OD to name a couple of his picks.

Strange how the majority of his good picks all happened when he was working as a lame duck GM with Kubiak.

Casserly had 1 good draft.
