    I'm just not sure ... Dog-gate or not ... that Michael Vick should have been on this list.

    And Walt Patulski? I'd like to honestly see how many NFL fans under the age of 30 even know who the hell he was.

    Carr might have amounted to something if he had a G-damn offensive line in front of him.

    No way Vick belongs on this list.

    My vote goes to Tim Couch Potato, if only because he was supposed to be answer at QB in a fantasy keeper league I'm in.
  6. Is it Ki-Jana Carter's fault he tore his ACL?

    He shouldn't be No. 2.

    I have to think Tony Mandarich should be on that list. Sure, he might've improved as a Colt, but the Packers passed on Barry Sanders. Favre and Sanders woulda been pretty solid, IMO.

    I don't know if Michael Vick was a bad draft choice from a football standpoint. He had great athletic talent and was one of those gameplan-changing players. Obviously, from a human standpoint, he deserved to be higher on the list.

    I have little argument with most of the rest of the list, but I have one question: Who's Walt Patulski?

    I think they are talking about No. 1 overall picks ... Mandarich was No. 2, behind Aikman.

    Good call. I should pay better attention.

    Bad first-round picks, or worst picks ever could easily be its own category.

    OK, a little early for Thursday trivia, but I'll play. This is from memory only, so parts (or frickin' all) could be wrong, but here goes:

    Buffalo Bills draft pick. Defensive lineman. Played at Notre Dame. No clue on his NFL career, but obviously not too illustrious.
