A lot of people are feeling scorched right about now that we passed on Reggie Bush. Others are excited about the Mario Williams pick, but how about a little perspective? Let's talk winning teams. Last year's notables ... Pittsburgh Steelers. Offense consists of Roethlisberger (decent to pretty good QB), Jerome Bettis (homerun threat - haha.), Willie Parker (decent to pretty good RB) Antwan Randel El (fast as hell, but nothing much in terms of complete WR) and Hines Ward (solid, consistent, possession WR.) Denver Broncos. Jake Plummer (Cardinal reject and oft maligned), Tatum Bell (fast but unheralded), Rod Smith (possession guy, simply solid), Ashley Lelie (decent but hasn't lived up to expectations). Carolina Panthers. Jake Delhomme (average arm, zero mobility, just makes right decisions), Steve Smith (a gamer, and a true "impact" player), Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster: two reliable but extremely unremarkable backs. Seattle Seahawks. Shaun Alexander is a gamer, without doubt. Past that, you have Hasselback (as unflashy as a quarterback gets) and a bunch of decent WRs. Also benefitted from weak SOS and probably the weakest division in pro football. Indianapolis Colts. No arguing the "impact offensive player" here. Manning, Harrison, and previously, Edgerrin James. Didn't stop the Colts from getting bounced out of the playoffs in their first game, for the third straight year. New England Patriots. The ultimate in "team." A bunch of pretty-good character guys who consistently put foot to ***. Three championships in the last five years earned by the ultimate gameplanning coaches. Not a single Reggie Bush on this entire roster. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cadillac Williams does a decent Reggie Bush impression. Chicago Bears. Solid (8th ranked) but very unspectacular run game, 31st ranked pass offense in the league in 2005. It would seem that, contrary to popular belief, "the next Gayle Sayers" isn't some kind of requisite to winning. The Seahawks dominated a weak NFC with superlative offense, and the Colts amassed a 14-2 record with a heavy dose of offensive impact players, but neither won the Super Bowl. The Steelers and Patriots -- who have won 4 out of the last 5 Super Bowls -- did it with defense. Same for the Ravens and the Bucs. Even the Rams could field a competitive defense: something the Texans haven't been able to really do since Day 1. Just food for thought. Mario Williams was the right pick around my table.
