Re: Who was the worst acquisition of the last 10 years?

I appologize if this was already mentioned...I just couldn't go through 8 pages of the same people. My pick was not presented Michael Westbrook. We draft him 1st round, He's injured, He's got the stomach flu, He's injured, He ran a few PR and never did well as a player. We get rid of him and all he was to GB was a glorified PR.

Other then that I would suggest Ducket. I still believe the only reason we took him was to keep the other NFC east teams from getting him. What a waist of a 4 round pick. Great RB never used.

We're talking about the last 10 years.

Michael Westbrook was drafted in 1995.

He was a bust but he did have a good year in 1999.

Re: Who was the worst acquisition of the last 10 years?

I went with Ducket, despite the big salaries for most of those other players. There's a little angry fan in the back of my head that reminds me, 3rd round pick!? wtf?!

My goal is to try to find busts that we've had that isn't listed here. I've gotta go to work but when I come back the search is on!

My first nomination for busts that belong in the "other" category: Rod Gardner?

Yet we gave up 2 picks for Lloyd and paid him more, so why does that not upset you?

Re: Who was the worst acquisition of the last 10 years?

It's certainly a valid point. And honestly i was thinking that at the time, we needed Brandon more. imo. What did we give up for Brandon again?

I have been shown the light. Lloyd it is. Atleast Ducket was quiet and produced. No matter how minimal it was. Lloyd....2 picks....what 2 catches......his horrible rap. He wins hands down.

I think cakes on the junkies summed it up nicely....Brandon Lloyd made roughly 3 million dollars a catch last year.

Plenty of bad acquisitions, George is just one of them.
That's what I mean. Lloyd had 0 good games. Plus he's messing up our salary cap for 09. Plus we didn't give any draft picks for George. Lloyd is the clear cut winner. But George is just a total dick. I remember him and Marty yelling at each other on the sidelines and Marty cutting him the next day. Classic.

Re: Who was the worst acquisition of the last 10 years?

I'm a little late to this party, but I've got this other life that allows me to pay the bills. I'll say Neon Deion was the worst IMO. I know you've disagreed w/ me in the past about this Matty, and I don't have the time to look up each and every stat (see above comment re: "other life"), but I just can't recall him doing anything of note...except stealing $8 mil from the Redskins for one lousy year.

I totally disagree w/Deon. He retired because Marty was hired, and he admitted he wasn't ready to change at that point of his career.

Deion was not a "shut down corner" when he came here, Champ was. For that reason Deon got picked on a little bit. Compared to other cb's, he was still well above avg. & if not for his name & flashy ways + salary, everyone would say he's alright. He even played all 16 games, something he hadn't done much of elsewhere.

Seems to me people criticize Deion being here because they had great expectations of him. He was past his prime (time) but still played well on a good D in 2000. Remember that team beat all the best teams in the nfl, but lost to the sorry ones mainly because of turnovers.

Re: Who was the worst acquisition of the last 10 years?

Loyd got my vote & I don't see how Arch was worse than him. We had to give up more for Loyd & in the end someone thought well enough of Arch to trade a 6th round pick & cash for him.

Didn't hear about any trade offers for Loyd.
