Bleacher Report: 32 Worst 1st Round Draft Busts

Postby rogdochar » Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:50 am

Worth noting :
#1) Tebow not mentioned

#2) Several QBs were listed with their high $ bonuses & their terrible
QB-ratings, some covering 3-4 years. All far below Tim's ratings & stats.

#3) My concluding point is that I remember these players. I was an
attendant NFL media follower throughout their years, yet I recall
none of these fully recognized 'terribles' being media lambasted
during their efforts.

Lamarcus Russell, a QB we all know, over 3 years took $39 million
from Oakland/the NFL. And he hurt the team that paid him. Yet, his
entire career-pursuit time went without personal or professional
attacks from media or teammates, or fellow NFL players, coaches,
or waterboys.

I know it's a rehashing, but there is plenty of league/media in denial
that Tebow is being biasly maltreated... discouraged & dispirited as
no beginner in the past, ever.

Thanks for the link, pal! Or are you just going to keep us in suspense and then quote the piece without showing it to us?

This is the closest article I could find and it was written a year ago.. I wish the OP would put the link to what he saw.

Leinart and Young yes. Bush has had some success, too much to be a bust but agreed that he hasn't come close to the hype.

I read that report awhile back but before I ever clicked on the link these 3 names jumped out at me.

Jamarcus Russell / Heath Shuler / Tim Couch

The irony is they're all celebrated college quarterbacks from the SEC! :)
