    D-Rob at OLB

    did i miss this here in JI?

    Seattle Seahawks
    On July 25, 2010, the Seahawks signed Robertson to a 1-year deal after spending a season out of the NFL attempting a transition to a career in interior decorating.

    Washington Redskins
    Days before Seattle began training camp, Robertson was traded to the Washington Redskins for a conditional 2012 late round draft choice. Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed at a press conference that following Robertson's successful offseason weight-loss program, he will be used as an outside linebacker opposite Brian Orakpo for the 2010 season.

    For what it's worth, he doesn't seem to be listed on the Redskins roster

    ya i can't find any evidence outside of his Wiki page that says that. Maybe D-Rob himself edited that in there one night when he was drunk.

    We didn't trade up for Gholston. We lost money plus pics with Drob.

    Drob = bigger bust. IMO

    Gholston is a frigging HOF compared with that fat, lazy waste of oxygen, D-rob


    Teams used to put in the special 63 Offense every week we played them.... Run the halfback right at the place where 63 is standing before the snap and when his fat lazy ass is pushed 10 yards down the field or to the side, run right through the vacated hole

    There were a couple of years where he played fairly decently next to Jason Ferguson. He actually produced some of the time. Did he live up to the hype of the no. 4 overall pick, absolutely not, but he did play decent a couple of years.

    I agree with you he was definitely a bust and not what he lived up. But I think so far Gholston is by far the worst pick ever.

    Umm. There's no way it's even close. Robertson wasn't even that bad when he was on the field. He was below average, but not horrendous. He had a few sacks and made a few plays. A bust, sure, but I don't think he'd even be a top 5 bust by the Jets standards.

    Blair Thomas
    Lam Jones
    Gholston

    are unquestionably bigger busts that D-Rob.

    Agreed, he did have one very nice year with Ferguson next to him.

    thats as ridiculous as D-rob playing OLB. Worst ever? Everything's gotta be dramatic with you hey? D-R0b was an unquestionable let down, but he was serviceable at times.

    The man played 16 games in his first year if i remember. Vern's yet to play 16 quarters.
