Default All-Time Greatest Waste of Talents on Poor Teams

So I got caught up watching some old Barry Sanders highlights and when you see Scott Mitchell and Rodney Peete handing the ball off to the man you have to feel for him.

I'm wondering what some of you guys are feeling were the Greatest Waste of Great Talent on Poor Teams have been over the years....

You can stick to football or bring in any sport you feel.

David Carr.....

Right now I think Lamont Jordan has a lot of talent and is screwed because he's on the Raiders.

I don't know about All-Time though...

Garnett is the reason they will not win in Minnesota. That contract is ridiculous. The only talent they could be bring in were those had baggage and therefore came at a low cost, but headaches followed.

True that shows how bad management has been there giving him such a contract.

But they could of went through the draft but messed up so bad with that joe smith debacle that they screwed themselves even more.

Just saying the ineptitude of the front office has wasted his talent and thats why they have no titles to show for it.

Archie Manning, Tommy Nobis, and Tom Landry... 29 Years in Dallas. Poor fella must've stepped on a puppy when he was 8 to warrant such punishment.

If by waste of talent you mean a talented player going to waste in a bad situation, then yea, I agree with Barry Sanders.

What are you talking about, according to Forbes magazine Kevin Mchale is the greatest GM in sports , but he's lucky Charlie Casserly isn't a GM anymore, because I'm positive Forbes magazine would of ranked him #1.
