    In honor of the "picks you wish we had made" thread, share some of the players youre glad we passed on/were swiped from us. Like, Im glad we passed VY and Reggie. Also glad we didnt get a chance to take Ginn Jr. So, just share your bad players avoided.

    Not someone we "passed" on, but in the spirit of Ted Ginn Jr. - Charles Rogers in 2003. I think they had AJ targeted anyway, but the idea of Rogers as a Texan and AJ as a Lion (or any other team) is demoralizing to think about even now.

    I'm glad Detroit passed on Andre Johnson for Charles Rogers.

    Yeah, really glad Detroit took Rodgers. That would have been awful. Wish we had passed on Babin and P Buc. ( I know we didnt "draft: him, but he cost enough picks.)

    For this draft, I'm glad we passed on trading up! and I'm glad we passed on Mendenhall.

    Freak injury aside, I'm glad ATL took Deangelo Hall and not Dunta Robinson. I personally wanted Reggie Bush and I'm glad I was wrong. No VY - (sigh or relief)

    I'm glad we chose Mario over Reggie and Vince.
    I'm glad we got Schaub and didn't take Brady Quinn.

    I'm glad we passed on Xavier Adibi with both our 3rd round picks. How did this guy slip to our 4th rd pick!!!??

    In hindsight the best one would be Charles Rogers being snatched ahead of AJ.

    I still like Mario over Bust/VY.

    DeMeco over Winston Justice/Jimmy Williams.

    Daniels over Ko Simpson.

    Ocho Stinko over Joey Harrington?!?!?!
