Default ESPN's CANTONIZED: Some Retrospective LOL's

This lockout is taking away all the real football discussions, so I took the liberty to resurrect this article from 2007.

I remember reading it that day and thinking to myself, "I gotta save this." I sure hope whoever was behind this was fired

LOL!

Reggie Bush isn't going to barge his way to NFL stardom as a bruising, between-the-tackles bully in the Earl Campbell mold. That's no secret. But Bush's agility, speed and soft hands make him one of the most explosive players in the league. His 88 receptions last season are the third-most by a rookie in NFL history and the most ever by a rookie running back. Teamed with an offensive core of Drew Brees, Marques Colston and Deuce McAllister in New Orleans, it's not difficult to imagine Bush getting the chance to play for a Super Bowl ring in the near future.
Bush did get a Super Bowl ring. Even if his contributions that season were minimal.
Quote:
Young was the runaway choice for Offensive Rookie of the Year, helping the Titans rally from 0-5 to 8-8. He led four come-from-behind victories and became the first rookie quarterback to rush for more than 500 yards. Young's critics point to his accuracy as his primary shortcoming, but his completion percentage improved with each season at Texas, including a jump to 65.2 percent as a junior. He also went from a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 6-to-7 as a freshman to 12-11 as a sophomore and 26-10 as a junior. Young is one of the most physically gifted quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. He just needs the Titans to put some talent around him.
Pretty sad that a raw QB would peak in his rookie year. "...just needs...some talent around him" reminds of some lame Carr excuse.

Mario Williams

Through no fault of his own, Williams will be held to a higher standard than most No. 1 overall picks. That's going to happen, however, when you're selected instead of Reggie Bush and Vince Young. It didn't help Williams' stock that teammate DeMeco Ryans was named 2006 Defensive Rookie of the Year. Add the fact that there's little reason to expect the Texans to compete for a playoff spot -- much less a championship -- anytime soon, and you get a recipe for falling short of the hype.
Andre wasn't even on the bubble section , but Brady Quinn was
