Default Hey, Rookie, Welcome to the NFL - 2002

Wow. Just. Wow.

Carr - Say no more.
Harrington - Say no more.
Mike Williams - Say no more.
Jeremy Shockey - Say no more.
Hatch - Guard from Penn State to Giants. 3 years in the league, 4 starts, 2 teams.
Josh Robinson - undrafted free agent to the Ravens. Didn't make it.

Not the best group of rookies to have followed.

If I'm a GM or a HC and the show executives approach me about one of my rookies, I would say "get the (bleep) outta here!!"

Shockey has been injured somewhat, but has been a big part of the Giants, so him being named along those other guys is nuts...He might be an ass, but he brings it...and I cannot remember the names, but he ate a few of the Texans lunch during the HOF game in 2002..

While home for lunch I happened to catch a bit of this show. Needless to say, I nearly lost my appetite. :elle:

I'm still watching (had a phone call in the middle).

Although they started off talking about Josh Robinson, they end up talking about another Ravens undrafted free agent DB... Will Demps. Will was making plays.

I thought that was Kevin Williams?

Either way, I'm sure players still watch their step in that area due to the body impression left in the ground.

I didn't mean to imply that he was a bad player. He's definitely the best player of the ones they were concentrating on.

But he hasn't had the most stellar career to this point. He's extremely talented and at times, he's great. But he has a problem with injuries and at times, he's been a bit of a cancer in the locker room.

I shouldn't have painted him with the same "say no more" brush as I had used for Harrington and HWWNBN.
