I pray you bear me henceforth from the noise and rumour of the field, where I may think the remnant of my thoughts in peace, and part of this body and my soul with contemplation and devout desires.

Pity is the virtue of the law, and none but tyrants use it cruelly.


Suprised he was still able to play at the ripe old age of 372. Musta hit his stride late.. glad he dropped the "William," Bill is a better football name.

1993 -- Deon Figures, CB, Colorado

Figures had such a huge upside, he was really coming into his own before he got shot in the leg in that drive by , he was just never the same after that.

Man what you can say about Troy Headwards :smh2:
I wonder if he would have amounted to anything if he would'nt have been so arrogant on the field and would of just try to learn from Ward when He tried to take him under his wing.:dunno:

Ok So, Knoll starts his career by drafting a DL by the name of Joe Greene. Cowher starts off by drafting an OL by the name of Leon Searcy. Who will Tomlin start off with?

Edwards was such a reach in the first place, we never should have taken him so high. We were hell bent on a WR that year and he was all that was left :nonod:

How many top picks in all the NFL drafts have out and out bombed. Seems to me as though alot of really great college players just could not make that next level. Thanks, Kyle for putting that list together, now when are we going to see your name on "the list" <Kyle told me is going to play for JoePa so I am patiently awaiting Kyle's draft into the NFL> :dunno:

starks was in 2004

now mind you Keisel only played one year and he was pretty solid hes only gonna get better so I think he IS the answer to our line just you wait, you'll see

It's Max by the way and i can't see Keisel getting much better than he is now if at all. I agree he's good but not great. He only came to play because Kimo left and no one was there to replace him. We all know that a DE is needed for this team.:yesnod:

I like Brett's upside alot. He's got good power and strength, he's got a good attitude and wants to win in the worst way. We just signed him last year I think it was to a long term deal so he'll be around for awhile assuming he continues to play at a high level like he did last year.

Someone told me a long time ago that the better players are generally in the 3rd-5th round.
