[QUOTE=VincenzoTestaverde;2937265]In those incredible drafts you're citing Mike Tanenbaum also brought in Anthony Schlegel, Eric Smith, Brad Smith and everyone's favorite loser Vernon Gholston.
We passed up Gabe Watson, a solid 3-4 NT who could have given us very solid depth behind Jenkins, for those f'n losers in 2006. In 2007 he passed up Brady Quinn, who looked damn good before he broke his finger this past season and will probably be a nice QB the next 10 years. You like Revis? What the f*ck is he doing for you now? Without a pass rush he's almost average.
2008 - Vernon Gholston. Jared Allen was being shopped around by KC to everyone. Allen is maybe the single best pass rusher in the entire NFL and would have made our defense top 5 if we had gotten him instead of wasting a top 6 pick on V-Ghost. Hey we got Keller and he is an ok receiving tight end, can't block for a sh*t but he ot hot for a couple games and then took some off.
Yeah, Mike T's a great a GM.[/QUOTE]
Life must be excellent when you have the benefit of hindsight working for you. Do me a favor and go back to 2000 and tell our GM to draft Tom Brady while you are at it....
Really, Tannenbaum is not the problem, he's brought in a lot of good players, both through the Draft and Free Agency. Some mistakes, but even the best GM's aren't perfect. Hell, Scott Pioli traded up for Chad Jackson (Oops!)
PS: Nobody knows what the hell Quinn is, he had 1 nice debut which he followed up with 2 awful showings before getting hurt. Using him as an example, especially when the alternative was Revis, is just hurting your argument.
