Q – Since football sucks this year I have to ask what criteria do you use when selecting the babe of the week?

I used to just google “sexy babes”, and I’d just pick out a sexy babe.  I also tried to keep in mind that different people wanted to see different things, so I sometimes went away from my norms.

Now, since I’m going with the retro theme (80’s and 90’s), kind of paying homage to “TBT”.  There are so many babes worthy of the BOTW from the 80’s and 90’s, I could probably do this for a few years.

It seems that the guys like the “TBT” theme, and I’m sure that Herd loves it too!

The way this season is going, choosing the BOTW is the highlight of the article, both for the author and the reader.

Q – Oinks to you Mike E. 

The NFL sucks this year.  Its not just the Dolphins, the league actually is bad.  The fact that the Dolphins are not taking advantage of the bad competition to get in to the playoffs is the salt in the wounds of a 5-7 season.  Every once in a while I hear some one say, that our team is so far behind other teams – but I look around the league and I don’t see teams that are far superior. 

There is going to be a .500 or sub.500 team or two in the postseason this year.  What if the Dolphins played in the NFC East or AFC South?  Those teams are all in the hunt and hovering at or below .500.  They aren’t really any better than the Dolphins. I don’t expect those teams to compete for a title in 2015.  

 But then again I recall the Seahawks were 7-9 at the start of the Pete Carroll era and made the playoffs….and won a game.  The Panthers were 7-8-1 last season and are undefeated in 2015.

I don’t these Dolphins and the core that makes this team now, in the long term, is doomed to fail.  I actually think they aren’t far off but are missing the catalysts some of the teams I mentioned above have had.  I don’t know what that sparkplug is, maybe just coaching,?  Maybe a great player? Maybe better and more consistent play from the QB position? 

I would not blow up this team, I would build on it and draft players from big schools that are healthy and get them competing  for jobs asap.  I’m not shipping guys away or cutting ties with players and doing a typical Dolphins offseason when we hunt for scapegoats, part ways with them then add guys to replace them and then wonder why we aren’t getting better when we spent the offseason replacing guys.  If I had my way, I’m bringing guys through the draft and maybe low costs free agents in and letting them compete with players already here .  I’m not blowing up the team.

Do you share this philosophy or are you a blow up kind of guy/hand?    

Oinks,

Pigsgerald

I guess it depends on what your definition of “blowing up” is.  It all depends on how they go about making changes here.  If they hire either a new GM, who then hires coaches that share his philosophy, which differs from the previous GM, then wholesale changes are abound.  Same goes for hiring a Head Coach that gets to choose his GM and coordinators.  I think we have some talent on both sides of the ball, but what still seems to be missing is players that can change a game.  I think Cam Wake is done here.  Suh, while being a very good player, can’t change the game by himself.  Reshad Jones may be the closest guy on defense who is a game-changer.

On offense, it starts with Tannehill.  I would have to think that whoever comes here as GM, or Head Coach is going to try and work with Ryan Tannehill as QB.  I know a lot of people are really down on him, and I include myself in that group, but I also realize it’s hard to judge his performance this year when the team just plain ol’ SUCKS!  We had no balance in our offense for most of the season, inexplicably, because we had success running the ball.  In any case, I think the new regime will try and see if they can get Tannehill playing at a higher level.  Lamar Miller could find himself in a quandary.  Due to how little he was used here, he might not find the $$$ in FA, because teams may not want to overpay for a guy who wasn’t used that much, despite his success.  Either way, we have Jay Ajayi, and we can work with him and draft another back next season.  Landry and Parker are 2 receivers to build around, and I suppose Stills will also be part of WR corps.  The rest, eh.

On defense, we really have a lot of work to do.  We need LB’s and CB’s, and we also have no idea what scheme we’ll have next season, 4-3 or 3-4.  Hard to imagine Dion FF being part of the team, but if somehow he manages to salvage his career, 3-4 OLB would be his best fit, as would OV and Chris McCain.  Misi could fit well as a 3-4 ILB, but we need a dynamic player somewhere in the LB corps, so Misi could end up out.  Jenkins is a little light for 3-4, and considering he may be the only LB with the arrow pointing up, it may be more likely we stay 4-3.

Grimes is still fine, and Bobby McCain is promising, but I’m not convinced good ol’ Bobby should be a boundary CB, he’s probably better suited to be a nickel corner.  So we likely need a CB opposite Grimes, and then a CB to groom to replace Grimes.  Any safety other than Reshad hasn’t impressed, so don’t be surprised if we look for a safety too.

One thing I strongly believe in is we need to stop spending big money in FA.  It’s not something any of the winning franchises do , and guess what?  They win while we continue to flounder.  Build through the draft, get a good HC, and hope we can start getting returns from our drafts.

That may not be blowing it up, but it’s pretty damn close.

  1. Brian in NY says:

    Nice job Mike. Mia Sara?

  2. Try Pod says:

    Sloane does not look like that anymore. The movie l thought she looked best in was Legend with Tom Cruise and Tim Curry.

  3. Rockphin says:

    Good morning! I am sitting outside my hotel in Tarrytown, NY smoking and drinking my coffee. I am so glad I brought this warm weather with me! I hate the cold.

    Good work MikeE!

    I got to town last night and the hotel had lost my reservation! They were 100% booked. (I am sure that because my room was comped they just gave it away to a paying customer, bastards!) so at 9pm I was scrambling to find a place to stay for two days. ….sorry we are full……sorry we are full…sorry we are full. What the fuck is going on in White Plains that all the hotels are full?????

    I hate my job. I finally found a hotel at 10pm last night. It’s only 40 miles from my meetings. Also, can’t the great state of NY afford street lights?? Curvey fucking road black as pitch, can’t read a street sign! This trip sucks so far. It could be worse. It could be freezing cold and snowing! Anyway, I need to get ready for my day. Hope everyone has a great day.

  4. Mike E. says:

    Bri

    Yes, Mia Sara

  5. Mike E. says:

    Rock

    Thanks man. You’re in the suburbs of NY, and much like the suburbs in NJ, the roads are not well lit. When you get into NYC, there are lights everywhere, but in the suburbs, not so much.

  6. Mike E. says:

    So Mia Sara was married to Jason Connery, son of Sean Connery. She gets divorced, and marries Brian Henson, who is Jim Henson’s son. She gives up Son of Bond for Son of Muppets. lol

  7. The Flying Pig says:

    Here is a pic of Mia’s first child with Brian Henson

  8. Try Pod says:

    Mike E,
    I may have already said this, but..
    Unless we intend to wipe the slate clean (everybody whose name is not Steve Ross), I see no reason not to keep Campbell and let him grow into the job- at least give him the requisite ~ 4 years to prove himself. I’m not talking about the people in advisory type positions necessarily (Shula, Marino, etc.), but the ops guys and gals.

  9. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Piggy

  10. Mike E. says:

    Try

    The problem I have with that (keeping Campbell) is that we’re going to need to two very good experienced coordinators. So then what you end up with is coordinators that are more qualified than the Head Coach, and I don’t see how that works well.

    • Try Pod says:

      I’m just thinking about the path we’ve been on, we’re we get rid of these but keep those then get rid of those and add these.. Unless the effort is to start clean and evaluate from Ross down, we are more than likely to repeat the last 10 years.

  11. The Flying Pig says:

    I didn’t realize my question was so long until I saw it this morning….lol

    Nice job Mike E
    but you are WRONG!!!
    There is only one way to define blowing it up – by oinks
    🙂
    Actually I think we pretty much agree based on your final statement about free agency
    I don’t really want to spend big FA $ either

    I think we need to rely on the draft
    and play younger players

    I think if you draft healthy players from bigger schools in the first couple of days we can get a lot of productivity out of the draft

    We actually have been good in the first 2 rounds the last 2 years IMO
    James – Landry
    Parker – Phillips

    Parker may have taken a while to get playing time
    but he’s getting there
    That’s 4 starters when it comes down to it

    But it would be nice to find immediate contributors in rounds 1-4 in 2016

    I do think adding 4, 5, or 6 players that contribute (mostly on D)
    getting better coaching
    and better QB play

    can make us a playoff team

    Its a lot to ask though
    we know nothing about who the coach might be

    personnel wise, I think we are on par with a lot of playoff teams in 2015

    • Rockphin says:

      PLAYOFFS!!?? Don’t talk about playoffs. You kidding me? PLAYOFFS? I don’t think
      We can win another game…Playoffs?

      Classic Jim Mora sound bite. (Couldn’t get the link to copy on my IPad)

  12. Mike E. says:

    I think we should start clean. Hire a qualified Head Coach, or GM, and let him fill out their staff. I’d prefer Mr. T be gone too, because if he’s still here, there will always be that thought that he’s still pulling the strings, regardless of how they choose to portray it. If we get a HC that deserves the right to choose his GM, so be it. I think what we need most is all working parts created with the same philosophy and ideas, one machine. Once we do that, the painful part begins, we have to be patient and let them work together a few years to get it right.

  13. Tim Knight says:

    Blowing it up starts with the coaching staff. I really don’t care who is in charge of personnel because someone has to do it. Do we really know that much about personnel guys? So we’ll have a new HC and staff and most of the players currently on the team and go from there.

    • Mike E. says:

      I disagree. I think if we hire a new GM or HC that chooses the GM, they have to have the freedom to choose the people they work with. I think it’s unhealthy to have people in place in charge that would oversee the other people, and possibly not allow them to do the things they want to do. When you hire a GM, he’s in charge, and then he hires the HC, and the HC chooses his staff. We already made that mistake twice. Let’s build it up entirely, everyone out, and build new.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I’m not sure what I said that you disagree with. I said I don’t care who the GM is.

        Also Tannenbaum is an executive who oversees a lot of football operations, not necessarily just the team. Not sure what Ross will do there but if we hire a proven coach who wants some personnel say and a guy he’s comfortable with running the personnel dept., that can still work regardless of Tannenbaum. All teams have presidents and VPs etc.

  14. Tim Knight says:

    Heading to Florida tomorrow for the game Monday night. Looking forward to it.

  15. sb7mvp says:

    Mike Tomlin won a SB bc of two experienced coordinators

    • Tim Knight says:

      He also came in and kept the DC in Dick LeBeau who specialized in the 3-4 zone blitz defense even though he was a former DC who ran a 4-3 defense.

  16. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    Tannenbaum definitely had his hand in personnel this season. I don’t care if he’s here either, but if the guy they hire says I don’t want Tannenbaum having any say in personnel, that’s the way it should be, or don’t do it all.

  17. Mike E. says:

    SB

    Tomlin was at least a coordinator, so despite the fact that he had 2 good coordinators, he was qualified enough to handle those duties himself. Campbell?

    • Tim Knight says:

      John Harbaugh was a STs and DBs coach, Dan Quinn and Jim Tomsula were DL coaches and they all became HCs.

    • sb7mvp says:

      He was a DC for one year with not much more experience. It’s beside the point though as your statement was about Campbell not working with two experienced coordinators.

  18. Tim Knight says:

    Parting shot from John Niese:
    “I didn’t enjoy facing the Pirates; they have a great lineup,” Niese said. “But, I’m sure what I’ll appreciate more than anything is the way they play defense. I’m looking forward to that.”

    • stangerx says:

      Tim — what pitcher wouldn’t want Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco patrolling the outfield for him. Three uber fast guys who eat up ground to get to balls. All have big arms too. All three could play centerfield, and well.

  19. Mike E. says:

    SB

    I suppose if the coordinators have no Head Coach aspirations of their own, then it could work, but I can see there being issues when the HC is leaning on a coordinator(s), and friction is caused because they feel like they should be getting the HC job in their own right. I’m sure LeBeau had no such aspirations.

  20. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    He’s (Niese) right, but that was a big reason we made the trade, to improve the defense up the middle. Think he’s happy that our defense is better now? 🙂

  21. Tim Knight says:

    Being that I don’t know much about every team in MLB I did not realize Asdrubal Cabrera is more than just a little signing at 2 years $18.5M. The Mets plan to play Cabrera at shortstop but also use him to spell David Wright at third base and to fill in at second. So along with the addition of Neil Walker, the Mets focused on upgrading the middle of their infield to go along with depth players Flores and Tejada.

  22. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    I think Niese is just frustrated. He pitched here when we were pretty bad for years, and now that we’re contenders, he’s out the door. He didn’t have to say it, but I don’t really mind it.

  23. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    I was watching Mets Hot Stove last night, and it didn’t seem as if Gerardo Parra was part of the plan, I didn’t hear a word about him. I think he would be great here. A guy who can get on base, runs the bases well with speed, hits for average, can steal bases, and is an above average fielder.

    • Mike E. says:

      Actually, not much of a base stealing threat, I retract that. OBP not that great either. I humbly retract those statements.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well need do need another outfield bat. Is Parra looking for big money?

      • Mike E. says:

        I haven’t spoken to him yet. I’ll text him, and I’ll let you know if/when he gets back to me. lol

        I have no idea, I think they’re all looking for big money. He made $6.4M last season.

        We have Granderson, Legares, Conforto, Cuddyer and that’s it. Cuddyer is a butcher out there, so yeah, I think we need an outfielder to platoon with Legares.

  24. Mike E. says:

    Jon

    Our defense was awful, it really was. There’s no other way to take that statement than to think he’s saying he’s looking forward to going to a team that can play defense, when his former team clearly didn’t

    • stangerx says:

      We’ll just have to disagree on that. You may be right, but there is at least another way to take it — that he’s psyched to go to a team with a really good defense. Far as on the field, how good his new D is has to be one of the first things a pitcher thinks about when he learns he’s been traded.

  25. Mike E. says:

    Last season Parra hit .291, 14 HR’s / 51 RBI’s and 14 SB’s

  26. stangerx says:

    “One thing I strongly believe in is we need to stop spending big money in FA.”

    Mike E — forgot to say nice piece. And the big money in FA won’t really be an option with Suh and Tanny’s contracts. So you will get that wish, next year at least……unless they go total rebuild, which I would hate to see.

    But will note that if you have the money you want to spend it. Maybe the question is how. Would be great to use it on re-signs on your own players but then they have to be good enough to deserve that. So it in large part comes to how well you draft and develop.

  27. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E, good job on the article by the way.

  34. Ken says:

    The Mets have a shortstop named Ass Dribble

  35. Ken says:

    Nice job Mike E. However, when I google “sexy babes” I usually come up with a slightly different result. Might be an extra search term or two as well.

  36. Al in MIA says:

    Hickey had a tough job and to me he’s done solid so far.
    Decisions had to be made on where you could go cheap (LB/OG) and where you can’t up front in the draft (OT/WR).
    The D/Olines are the foundations of success coupled with outside playmakers (WR/CB/DE).
    I believe Hickey will address the OL better this season now that the WR situation was overhauled YR/YR. The RB situation is tricky given Miller’s pending status as a FA but another mid to late RD flyer could help the situation or a cheap FA to combo w/ Ajayi might work for the time being.
    Should be interesting how the team addresses DE going forward.
    They will certainly not pay Coples 2016 7+ mill cap value (will be cut and given a chance to re-sign im sure at a cheaper price). They also have Dion Jordan coming off the suspension list.
    Vernon is a pending FA as well and has really pushed up his statistics the last few weeks which will increase his value in the open market. Shelby is also a pending FA.
    A scheme change to a base 3-4 could help out and maybe make Suh even scarier. That would involving getting some better LB im sure (something that can be addressed in the draft)

    Armando is 100% correct. Neither will be playing Sunday. Nor will the other 51 players on our roster.

  38. Ken says:

    Al:
    I don’t like the idea of Suh in a 3-4. I think it minimizes his playmaking ability as an interior rusher. He is not an occupy space type of NT and as a 3-4 DE he would be more of a set the edge type of guy. So I don’t see a 3-4 working well for us with Suh.

  39. Mike E. says:

    Al

    I have nothing against Hickey. The point is, if a HC comes in and wants his own personnel guys, he should have it. Same with a new GM

  40. Mike E. says:

    As long as Ass Dribble hits and plays the field well, I don’t care if his name is FF

  41. Mike E. says:

    Thanks Ken – If you’re googling “sexy babes”from Rob’s couch, the skewed results are understandable.

    Ken, a 3-4 DE is an interior player and we have lined up in a 3-4 this year.

    • Ken says:

      Lining up in a 3-4 for a few plays and playing it as a regular scheme are 2 different things. I make Suh will be pissed if we ask him to play a 3-4.

  44. Ken says:

    Mike E:
    Ass Dribble is not a bad player. Decent hitter. Mediocre fielder.

  45. Al in MIA says:

  46. Al in MIA says:

    Mike E,
    I disagree vehemetly that Bobby McCain is better as a nickle.
    He’s a clone of Grimes IMO and his best work is going deep with a WR.
    This past game was a poor one to analyze his work as the field conditions had many guys slipping on both offense/defense.

  47. Al in MIA says:

    Speaking of Brice McCain, I didn’t realize he played corner opposite of Sean Smith back at Utah LOL. Man, looking back at the Utah teams from around 2008 (the one that beat Bama in the Sugar Bowl), the Fins liked a few guys there.
    Shelby (played DT there) & Misi were part of that team as was Sean Smith, Brice McCain (starter opposite Smith), & RJ Stanford.

  48. Mike E. says:

    Al
    As far as McCain is concerned, I don’t think he belongs on big WR’s like Brandon Marshall, or any receiver like him. Most slot WR’s are smaller guys, which he can handle better.

  49. Al in MIA says:

    Tim,
    Agree as well on Suh. Many scouts believed he would be ideal at his natural 4-3 DT position or as a 3-4 DE.
    Btw, not sure if i’ve seen anyone mention it in here but if you wondered about Suh’s name, I came across this on one of his pre-draft profiles
    ” Ndamukong Suh (the name means “House of Spears” in the language of the Ngema tribe in Cameroon, where his father is from)”

    • Ken says:

      I vehemently oppose the idea of Suh as a 3-4 DE. In College and Pros Suh has played almost exclusively a 4-3 scheme and has become an all pro doing it. So why should we mess with the game of our best player on our roster?

      • Tim Knight says:

        None of us will be messing with anything, we’re just discussing it as an option because it is one with a new HC.

  50. Mike E. says:

    Ken

    Tejada was nothing special at SS, and he can’t hit, and Flores, while he has some pop, is a liability at SS, and he strikes out too much. I think Cabrera in general is an upgrade.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Tejada had a clutch year with the bat and he’s our best infielder. He played better last year then I thought he could.

  51. Al in MIA says:

    lmfao on objection Mike E.
    The size thing is debatable (don’t get ideas FFR LOL). If you are going to be short at corner, you need to be fast and a good leaper. Antonio Wingfield and Brent Grimes are two examples of short guys who excelled with their frame. I’m not saying McCain will develop into those guys but I feel he runs routes with WR like a WR which is what I look for in any corner.
    McCain had a good vertical jump score during his pre-draft workouts (36″) and also a very good broad jump (10′-10″) so he can get up there (in comparison to other CB, Revis at 5’11” had a 38″ vertical / 10′-5″ broad jump while Grimes had a 33″ vertical & 10′-1″; Winfield had a 37″ vertical & 10′-2″ broad jump). Also to note, McCain is 5-9 but also weighed 195 lbs at that height (strong core).

    • Al in MIA says:

      I will mention that Winfield/Revis posted very fast high end 4.40 sec type 40 yd dash speed (McCain posted high end 4.5 speed while Grimes a little slower in the low 4.50 range)

  52. Al in MIA says:

    Ken,
    My belief is if you have the tools to play a certain alignment, it can work for you (speed/power in this case).
    I mean, JT never played in a 3-4 until later on in his career when Don Capers came around and it’s where he earned Defensive POY. There are differences of course with DT to DE than DE to LB but overall, Suh has the ability to shed OG in shorter space and I can only imagine he can push around OT with more space to work with.

  53. getterdone says:

    Miami Dolphins ✔ @MiamiDolphins
    .@ReshadJones9 is the first DB since 2003 to have at least 100 tackles, 2 sacks and 4 INTs in the same season.

  54. Mike E. says:

    Al

    It’s possible, but these days, a nickel corner is a starter for the most part anyway. I’d rather have him cover Edelman in the slot, than B.Marsh on the outside. It’s a lot to ask, and Grimes himself couldn’t cover Marshall in the Meadowlands.

    • Al in MIA says:

      There were issues with Grimes against Marshall that day for sure but it wasn’t the first time they faced each other. Grimes had a bad outing but he wasn’t bad in Chicago the previous time they met. Besides, the problems that a short WR may present in coverage against a tall WR are with plays where both are going to reach high for the ball. Grimes was getting beat with Marshall’s feet (also with the Jets pass O scheme); not necessarily his height.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Until Lippett is ready or if he ever will be a good corner, we don’t have any big corners to cover Marshall etc.

      • Mike E. says:

        Exactly why I want to draft a couple of CB’s Tim. Hopefully, one with a little size, at least 6′

  55. Mike E. says:

    Al

    I like good ol’ Bobby, I like his tenacity, and I do think he can develop into a good CB.

    Tim, on that play action Ajayi was wide open underneath. Why didn’t Tanny throw it to him? 😉

  63. Mike E. says:

    The last RB we had with the last name Booker (Lorenzo) was a big disappointment

  64. Mike E. says:

    Wyo

    Is it bad that I needed a magnifying glass to read that injury report?

  65. Mike E. says:

    Wyo

    I’m not saying we shouldn’t draft Booker, I just like to point out these things because I’m silly!

  66. ocalahowie says:

    Well Grimes cant hang with Sammy Watkins either

  67. ocalahowie says:

    Didnt he go down with a knee earlier? Perhaps he is still hurting and the Big Boys are a bit too much for him to handle.

  68. ocalahowie says:

    I was told we are wearing Throw-back UNI’S on MNF
    anyone hear the same?
    If so, I hope they go way back to the Shula days
    GO PHINS!!!

    Response of British Army vet Chris Herbert on his facebook page to poster swho assume he hates Muslims because he lost his leg in Iraq.

    ———————————————–

    “If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few feel free, but don’t push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.”
    “Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.
    “A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
    “A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field.
    “A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life.
    “A Muslim nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK.
    “A Muslim healthcare assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk.
    “A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my dad after I came home.
    “A Muslim doctor offered my dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didn’t know how to deal with my medicines and side effects……”
    “I know who I dislike, and I know who I don’t. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I don’t…”
    “Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.”

    wow, what a shock. the hand is going blind. who would have thunk that

  77. Mike E. says:

    The hand is f’n old!

    any body read muhammed ali comments the other day about trumps comment

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/12/10/muhammad-ali-on-donald-trump-muslims-have-to-stand-up-to-anti-islamic-speech/

    aaahhhh, no mr ali, it isnt the job of our political leaders to bring awareness about islam or any religion. but it is the job of our political leaders to protect its citizens against the fanatics that in the name of religion want to slaughter innocent people. it is the job of the leaders in your religion to not only bring awareness about it but also stop these crazy idiot making your religion look bad.

      Yeah, I saw it, Trump knows what he’s doing. He doesn’t seem to care about the people that aren’t going to vote for him anyways, and what it’s doing is pushing the people that he’s targeting to his side.

  79. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Herd

  80. finfanrob says:

    steve,

    i just like how the media ran with it like ali was putting trump in his place and completely ignoring how wrong ali was that the political leaders should be informing people about religion.

    • steveccnv says:

      The media will run with anything that fits there agenda, but whatever they do, just because they do it, doesn’t really mean anything. It’s kinda like sports reporters before the draft or the season, WTF do they know? Only what they’re being told, and at that time of yr, what they’re being told is half BS and half untrue.

  81. D says:

    Arkansas state is in the city of jonesboro Arkansas, which was the site of the school shooting that followed Columbine

  82. steveccnv says:

    The final play of the MSU vs Mich. game was the play of the yr. Unbelievable, since it was caused by an Ausie that doesn’t have American Football instincts.

  83. finfanrob says:

    steve,

    that is one of my favorite things the sports media does. calling some one a draft bust. yet they are the ones who build a player up then when the player isnt what they say, they call him a bust instead of saying they were wrong about the player.
