had to laugh at this

Rick Mirer
QB, No. 2 overall, Seattle Seahawks, 1993

After observing Mirer at Notre Dame, Bill Walsh called him the second-coming of Joe Montana. Mirer wasn't even the second coming of Joe Pisarcik. The Seahawks took Mirer after Drew Bledsoe, and in four seasons Mirer tossed 41 TDs and 56 INTs. Mirer has the distinction of being a huge bust for two teams. The Bears traded a first-round pick to Seattle for Mirer in 1997. He never won Chicago's starting job.

sound familiar? Who was running and coaching the Bears back then? :shakeno:

Cade is a Leaf size bust.

I admit it, I thought Sammie Smith was a heck of a pick. I preferred him over another highly rated back. I can't remember who that was, but I don't think he panned out either. That year I was working as a sportsbook supervisor at Binion's Horseshoe and asked for the day off so I could watch the draft. It was a busy day during NBA/baseball seasons so my boss wasn't thrilled, but he let me off. I predicted the Dolphins would take Sammie Smith, so I guess that qualifies as my answer to another thread here today. After that pick, I learned never to put much faith in Noles.

It was Barry Sanders. Remind me who you want Miami to take at RB, so I can pray Miami takes someone else :roflmao:

Tedford-coached quarterbacks -- Trent Dilfer, Joey Harrington and Kyle Boller - haven't had much NFL success.


I guess a Super Bowl championship isn't much success...

My personal opinion, Tony Mandarich. Biggest bust ever.
I dont agree. Simply because the OL isnt as big as other positions on the field. Since the topic is biggest bust you have to go with someone that had the "potential" to be one of the greatest and was hyped beyond anything(Mandarich does fall int hat category)...you have to go Ryan Leaf. People were saying he would be better than Manning...etcc etcc i know weve all heard it. Leaf is for sure #1....Mandarich is tied for second ill say with perhaps guys like Tim Couch and Rick Mirer. :D Good post though

if it weren't for the fact that everytime someone mentions Dan or Payton they talk about how Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl, no one would even know that he was on that team. That Super Bowl was won by the D

That reminds me of some of my Vegas sportsbook friends. They intentionally ask for picks from guys who suck at handicapping, then thrill to go the other way. A current go-against favorite is a guy named Elliot, who works in a local sportsbook and has every opinion and no clue. My friends hunt him out all year and even fill out anti-Elliot parlay cards.

But since you asked, I want Caddy.

I just looked it up, the '89 draft. The RB I didn't want was Tim Worley of Georgia. He was rumored to fall to us. Somewhat like Ronnie Brown, I thought he was big and fast but lacked the instincts and elusiveness. Worley was taken two picks before we nabbed Sammie Smith.

I really wanted to see Mirer succeed. He went to Goshen High School(Indiana), which is about 30 miles from where I live. Oh well, at least he is ranked near the top of one category....even if that category is "Biggest Busts"

Tim Worley (Georgia). Drafted by the steelers. Big bust also

I was talking about how the Bears traded a 1st for him and at the time they were being coached by Wanny and his sidekick Spielman.
