Heyward and Hood were first round picks and they're playing like 4th or 5th round picks well into their careers.
They could have skipped the 2008 and 2009 drafts and we;d have about the same number of players form those drafts still playing.
I thought the talent was there like you do, but I'm beginning to believe the talent simply isn't there and the FO has simply missed on entire drafts and the majority of a couple others.
talent is the issue, IMO.
1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami (Mackensie Aleander)
2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)
3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St. (Nick Vannett)
4.123) Jerald Hawkins - OT, LSU (Deandre Houston-Carson)
6.220) Travis Feeny - OLB, Wash (Darius Jackson)
7.227) Demarcus Ayers - WR, Hou (Graham Glasgow)
7.246) Tyler Matakevich - OLB, Temple (Travis Feeney)
The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
