    Lawrence Phillips biggest bust ever??

    Just came across a tournament of draft busts. Seems our boy Phillips made it all the way to the Final Four and is up against Tim Couch right now. Let's vote him up...Ryan Leaf here we come!


    ***Admin note**** funny how the site you came across just happens to be yours.

    Tim the Couch Pohtahtoh!

    BTW, the other day I happened to run across a web site (USA Today / Sports Store) that offers a "Ricky Williams and Tim Couch Autographed NCAA Football with Heisman'98 and #1 Pick" football. $232.

    Certified 'Authentic'. // Make sure you order two or three more, you know, for your football friends.


    Couch ... he really took the cake! A disgrace to the Heisman Trophy.

    Tim Couch was a moderately functional nlf qb at least for a brief period of time. Same can not be said for ryan leaf or akili smith, let alone phillips, tony mandrich or walt patulski.

    we passed on Eddie George to get L.P.


    also in that 1st round we had another pick which was spent on Eddie Kennison after passing on Marvin Harrison!

    one thing ive noticed with our last 3 HC`s Vermiel,Martz & Linehan..is that their 1st draft has been their worst...lets hope Spags & Billy D can break that trend with this years draft.

    I couldn't remember who it was , but thanks on that one...Eddie George.Only thing good to come out of that was we beat him in the superbowl. Then again we might have one more with him!

    i think the fact that he was a late 3rd round project pick who had a nasty injury in the pre-season of his rookie year,kinda puts him out of the category of huge busts.

    it does for me anyway...

    is funny how things work out aint it...if we had drafted George instead of Phillips we probably wouldnt have traded for Faulk.
    so who knows...

    That's what I was thinking. So I'd say, in the end everything worked out for the best.

    dieter brock took the rams to an nfc championship game. That does not qualify him as an all time bust. Holy Ryan McGwire batman. Meanwhile, how about kijana carter?
