    A quarterback that never completes a pass? Or a wide receiver who spontaneously fumbles his only reception?

    Pat White, no question about it. He was a 2nd round pick, Naanee was a low salary free agent pick up.

    Naanee at least had respectable stats for a year. Pat didn't complete a freakin pass!

    Exactly. Relative to the opportunity cost, Pat White might very well be the worst player in franchise history. If it's not him, he's certainly on a very exclusive list along with Eric Kumerow, Eddie Moore, Yatil Green, Don Reese, Billy Milner, Darryl Carlton and Jackie Shipp. Guys like John Avery, Tedd Ginn, Jason Allen, Sammie Smith and David Overstreet (like Green, it's not his fault, but still) were terrible but at least did something. The guys on the first list were complete losses.

    At least Naanono could block once and a while.

    This all depends how you look at it. (being it's kind of asked 2 different ways) Did anybody really know what White may do in the NFL? With LN we had tape to look at, should have known what he was about. PW at least seemed to have promise in the Wildcat back then.
    If we are asking worst pick up...then yeah, White and his 2nd round price tag. This title just says worst player though. In those terms I give it to Naanee. At least catch a dang ball. White wasn't hired/drafted to be starter, just a gimmick guy.
    Now when the question then reads who tarnished the franchise more. yeah, it would be the PICK of Pat White, not White himself.

    Legadon't was my favorite nickname.

    Anyway, I'm amazed people are willing to ignore the pick spent on White in choosing Naanee in this poll. Only in the context of opportunity cost does this kind of exercise make even marginal sense, otherwise there's a whole history of practice scrubs and other barely rosterable maggots who rank far below even Naanee in franchise history. Naanee made very little dent in the scheme of things. He didn't cost a pick, a ton of money, lose a game or get anyone hurt. We'll forget about him soon enough.

    White, on the other hand, will live on in Infamy. And for good reason. He was an embarrassment on the field, perpetuated a joke gimmick of an offense, and was also taken just a few picks before the likes of Connor Barwin and LeSean McCoy.

    No, he played some in '83. Even caught a touchdown pass from Marino, I believe.

    If Matthews is active instead of Naanee, not sure we lose the Arizona game. He could've dropped that pass or fell flat on his face after hauling it in, either of which would've made the win much easier than the non-contact fumble, which has to be one of the worst plays I've ever seen any WR make, ever.

    Of course, some of the throws Pat White attempted were some of the worst pass attempts I've ever seen too.

    BTW - go back and look at that 2009 draft as a whole. That draft is chocked full of busts and disappointments, all around, not just our team.

    Except, as bad as it was, Smith's INT and the resulting long touchdown made Lega's booboo irrelevant. It didn't lose us the game at all.

    Well I don't have the machine that takes me to the parallel universe where he holds on to the ball instead of fumbling, but I'd like to think we score a TD on that drive, eat up a bunch of clock and perhaps don't leave Az any time to get their late TD.

    Who the hell knows what happens if the guy holds on to the ball, but I do know it would've increased our odds of winning dramatically over what he actually did. The odds of Az not scoring from inside the 5 after that turnover were extremely low, we got lucky. If he didn't cost us the game, he damn sure tried!

    We definitely got lucky. But I would just argue it's spurious to say it lost us the game considering what came after. Any one of two dozen things lost us the game before that even comes up.

    Anyway, it hardly matters anymore. He's gone.

    Leg actually did something in the league. White didn't. Leg had a far better career.

    Yes, I ignored the pick when I voted for Legadu, because the poll was simply asking who was the worst player. Legadu was so unbelievably bad I would have rather seen us playing with 10 men on the field than for him to be out there. Every time Tannehill tried to throw the ball to him, something horrible happened. So yeah, between Pat White, and Gerbil Wilson, and Marc Columbo, and Legadu Naanee (all horrible, horrible recent players) I would probably vote for Pat White as the 3rd worst.

    I gotta say it's not the players fault it managements fault in both cases for assuming they were something they weren't.

    Pat White, no contest.

    Totally wasted draft pick.

    I still can't believe that he wanted to quit and his parents came to convince him to keep playing. How pathetic.

    His interviews were the all time worst player interviews of any football player in the history of the NFL, 'sir'... :d-day:

    Im sure White once successfully gave the ball to a running back, more than Naanee did.

    Do you not have anything better to do than sit here and bash and poll 2 players that aren't even on the roster anymore? Spam forum.

    Neither "Tarnished" the franchise. They were more like non-factors.

    This is my take on it. There are actually 2 questions being asked in this thread:

    1) Who tarnished the franchise more? Pat White. Spent a 2nd round pick on a bust.

    2) Worse player? Definitely Noonoo. At least Pat White had a couple first down conversions for us.

    Just pointing out that Leg at least did some things in his career while White was a massive bust that never completed a pass.

    I voted Nanee as the worst player although he was a small risk, high potential reward inexpensive acquisition vs wasting a 2nd on wee Patty White.

    Did so because Leggo did nothing since he's been here at least that I can see dating back to exhibitiion season and has been getting a free ride at the expense of a Matthews or Hogan. Maybe we wouldn't have cut Cunningham who was snatched up for the Eagles PS squad immediately so in that respect he may have cost us exposure to another promising WR or two.

    OTOH, White was miscast, a poor choice, but he was a fine young man who reflected well on the organization rather than "tarnishing" it. I remember during a veterans honoring ceremony upiin Foxboro, he's the only one who shook each of the military's hands and thanked them for their service. He tried his hardest, but unfortunately it wasn't near good enough and I wish him the best whatever he ends up doing.

    Only to those that nicknamed Patty and the 'WildPat' before he played a down in the NFL. Others heard his name read at the draft, and knew right then and right there....BUST.
