Come ON!! The only pick in the past two or three years you can bitch about is Everette Brown? He will make you eat your words. Hurney is keeping us from becoming the Lions or someone like them. Look at the talent on our team we got in the late rounds recently (4th or later): King, Rosario, Barnidge, Norwood, Hardy, Schwartz, Munnerlyn, Bernadeau, Fiametta, Gettis, Pike, Pugh, CJ Wilson, etc.
Look at players we bring in with late round picks: Chris Harris/Jamal Williams, Louis Leonard, Tank Tyler.
Look at the undrafted free agents we picked up: Matt Moore, Sutton, R. Jackson, C. Martin, H. Cantwell.
Then there are bargain free agents like K. Moore, Brayton, E. Johnson.
THen look at the players we have that were great values when we drafted them (projected to go much higher than they did): Clausen, D. WIlliams, Connor, LaFell, Kalil, Robinson, Marshall, Pike, Godfrey, S. Martin, etc.
Now look at the high priced free agents we have on the roster: We don't have any. Wright? Hudson? Francisco?
Bottom line: We are going to be competitive for a long time, as long as Hurney is the GM. I have 20 million reasons why I would rather have Hardy and his motor over Peppers. Louis Leonard is fine with me over Haynesworth. I will take Moore and Clausen over Bradford and his salary. Everybody is quick to judge. Lafell is going to be fine this year. Jarrett may step up. Kenny Moore is ready. Things are pretty damn good right now, and you want to make fun of the Brown pick? It was a good pick, and will pay off for the next 10 years. First scrimmage and you go off-what the hell is that?
