can you name any?
i know one:
Ron Dayne 1999
Jason White - OU
didnt really play though, but from OU so hes a bust
someone suggested that we pick him up, HAHAHA, what a joke
Hands down the worst and most undeserving Heisman winner ever.
About half of the winners over the last 16 years were NFL busts, although Charlie Ward has been (or was?) a pretty decent NBA player for a while...
IMO, Desmond Howard was a bust at WR, but was a pretty dangerous return man for a while.
Another thing to consider is that some of these guys aren't really NFL busts, because no one ever expected them to be stars at the next level. I know D. Wuerffel and C. Ward were never expected to do much in the NFL.
so a heisman winner went to basketball? wtf???
i have a feeling troy smith will do alright
IIRC, Ward didn't even enter the NFL draft...
Here is a pretty interesting read about him.
Charles Woodson is a bust IMO...He had all that hype yet was never at any point considered the best CB in the NFL...
ill agree he had a good rookie season and was average the rest, i have a bad feelin that dunta is gonna turn out like charles
How about any quarterback from the University of Miami, Univ of Florida, and Florida State Univ?
Reggie Bush is in no way a bust. Plus it's much too early to tell. (however I realize you are probably kidding).
Carson Palmer...err. I mean...
Who was that guy...did Marcus DuPree, RB from Oklahoma ever get one?? I hope I even got the name right.
Yep..leading the league in rushing twice puts him squarley in "bust" contention.
that'd be mine.
Sorry Ol Miss Ricky lead the league once in rushing...busts don't do that. Hate on the guy all you want but if smoking pot is the worst you have on him then he's a saint(ok yes i know lame) compared to a lot of people in the league. See Bengals and now Jags.
I think the Jason White one was...i don't know no one really expected his knees to hold up outside of Oklahoma. I think he knew that too and kind of threw his hat in the draft for the heck of it. Isn't he coaching now?
i'll agree he's not a bust like we're naming but i'm throwing his name out there. he had some decent seasons, '02 was his great one...he could have done more than smoke tha mary jane with hootie and go play football in canada... would anyone disagree his career went downhill fast!?
2002 season was good where he had 16 TD's but other than that he had 9 or less every season...not to mention he's missed 2 of the last 3 seasons because he's wasting his talent....his head isn't in the right place.
I think most of it was the retirement gig. I do agree though Dave W was going to run Ricky into the ground he could've voiced his opions and thoughts better.
I think the CFL gig isn't that bad of an idea to keep him in shape and out of trouble if you're the dolphins. Some people travel a different path and i can respect that about Ricky even if others can't. At least he's not Lawrence Phillips. Say what you want about the guy but he's never done anything that bad.
Well, New Orleans trading its whole 1999 draft for him makes Ricky Williams a BUST
