I like how pretty much everyone on the list has had some sort of injury and still have comparable stats to Reggie, yet he is not disappointing even though he is healthy

All three are at various levels of sucking. End of story. Taking any of those three at #1 would be stupid at this moment.

Hey, my firewall at work won't let me see the list.

Can anyone post the quick version for me? I don't need to know why they're on the list, but I would be appreciative if someone can tell me who is on there....

Now SH, I have been consistent in my opinions about VY and Bush since they were playing at their respective schools. We could have drafted Manning and I would still feel the same way about those two guys...

excellent point, as tulexan noted the common denominator is injury

seems conterproductive to create such negative lists, like they wished injurys on themselves or something

So you admit that Bush has been disappointing thus far? Just not as disappointing as myself and others see Reggie's performance.

considering the amount of hype given to Bush, anything short of Pro Bowl numbers would have been a disappointment. He has yet to reach that level, so that could be called disappointing. I would call it overhype and that he is what he is. a good running back with a lot of talent but a lot to learn about being a featured back (which is the only way one could justify a RB at #2 overall).

i just think some of us on this board, and not necessarily you, will find any reason to say Bush sucks in an attempt to somehow justify our own team's stupidity at choosing Mario #1. I don't want other players failures or somewhat disappointing performances used to make ourselves feel better about the selection of Mario. I want Mario to make us feel better about the pick....and I am still waiting.

One thing is for sure, I bet if we would have selected Bush, we would probably still have DC at QB and that can't be good. So at least we can take solace in that
