Damn, that's really sad. He's nearing all-time bust status.
all-time? not even close.
cough, cough, Ryan Leaf, cough
I didn't mean he was "the" biggest bust, just that he's about to be on the list.
The fact that Peyton was picked before him means that someone knew he wasn't the best.
The #1 bust of all time should be someone who was considered the best of all and then sucked.
Ah.... then, yeah. I'd say you're on target.
And as far as Peyton v. Leaf, there was a lot of discussion regarding which one of them was going to go first. But I suppose you're right - Indianapolis chose wisely.
Supposed to be the best. Undeniably the best but turned out to be a turd... maybe Tony Mandarich?
based on pre-draft hype and who the Packers passed up by taking him, Tony Mandarich is the obvious choise for biggest bust. missed up on Barry Sanders and Deion Sanders. it's not like the Chargers had to choose between Leaf and Manning. Mandarich was supposed to be the best o-lineman of all TIME.
He isn't a bust, he is just a bad pick...he is a first round talent taken in the 3rd round for a reason.
he's a bust based on his preseason hype his senior season. that's pretty much it.
So who do we think gives him his next shot?
Saw that coming.
Why not us?
The risk is low, he could be signed to the PS and see if somehow one of the coaches can get through to him; and he has the talent.
But then again it probably won't happen.
There was a rumor that the Raiders cut Moses by accident but I have hard time believing that...but then again it is the Raiders.
he's more of a stand up tweener than a DE...he can't hold up to NFL OT's and I hear he just isn't that strong...other than the lazy rumors.
This is a shot in the dark, but at 6'4" and 250'ish any chance he might be able to play the SAM LB spot? I would think that he would have issues in coverage, but should be ok around the line of scrimmage, espically playing behind a 4 man front.
Just a random, not likely to happen, I'm bored thought.
Parts of that sound eerily similar to some of our current players. (No I'm not a MW basher either)
Sounds more like Babin then Mario.
I was just saying that it seems like most of the "DEs" we draft have some or all of those descriptions - not a shot at MW, though some did label him lazy at some point. Babin, Peek and well the rest of our 3-4 OLBs from years passed.
I was thinking at this point Weaver, I was happy about the signing but now, not so much.
I think if you factor in the talent taken after him, Courtney Brown has to be the all time bust
