Whitney asked, so G:TB delivers

The Buffalo Bills 1st round draft history, back to 1990:



The Washington redskins 1st round draft history, back to 1984, just because it's fun to see how much Gibbs hated draft picks:


Have at it folks...

John McCargopants has 47 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 5 years with the Bills (40 games).

Nice work, Teejmeister. This is fodder for opening arguments, though I'd have to concede that the Skins have been damn near "mediocre," maybe even "spotty at best" lately. A huge step up from the Desmond -> Ramsey trail of tears.

I do contend, however, that more research would unveil much more shame. Entire drafts of players nobody has heard from since. Teej, you should hire a GTB intern.

Have some fun with this... http://bit.ly/eBZTGq

I remember when Erik Flowers was the biggest bust in Bills history. Who knew he and Mike Williams were just the start of this train wreck.

mayhugh said...

That is fun. If you call 'fun' remembering that since 2003 the Redskins have only had more than 6 draft picks in one year. 2003 (2nd, 3rd, 7th), 2006 (2nd, 5th, 6th, 6th, 7th, 7th), and 2007 (1st, 5th (something called a Dallas Sartz), 6th, 6th, and 7th) are especially vomit-inducing.

T.J. said...

Someone called Aaron Maybin the worst player in the league earlier this season, yes?

TR said...

Why don't they call Rich Rodriguez DickRod instead of RichRod?

Mark said...

Not sure TR. I've been calling him DickRod for a few years now. It fits better.

You really have to comb through the draft using profootballreference.com. This puts things in even more perspective because you can see all the players they passed up. It gives you career stats and it tells you how many Pro Bowls each player made, how many years they started, etc. and it's sortable. It's great for wallowing in self-loathing.

The Bills didn't start to have terrible drafts until shortly after they got Eric Moulds. So going back 20 years may be too much.

Wayman Tisdale made a funk record, who knew.

Dave said...

is there a particular organization that has made great draft choices over the years?

i'd like to see that chart.

T.J. said...

They're called the Patriots.

zman said...

The Eagles and Steelers do a good job too.

Mark said...

Squeaky...lots of people knew about Wayman's musical stylings. He won a Grammy. Sorry.

zman said...

Whoa.

Bobby Petrino is a douche, but no way I'm rooting for Ohio State. So backing Ryan Mallett...

T.J. said...

And Dave, the team you root for hit on every pick I believe the year they upset the Pats. I'm pretty sure that point was hammered home multiple times.

Mark said...

I think Terelle Pryor is poop and I don't buy Ohio State either but Arkansas is so flaky. I can't shake the feeling that they'll blow this.

rob said...

with all due respect to the late, great evan lloyd and my friend buck, i hope the buckeyes get their doors blown off.

Mark said...

I second that. Except for the friends part. Fuck those guys too.

T.J. said...

So, is DickRod still employed or what?

rob said...

i have more than 40 orphan socks. what the fuck is that?

T.J. said...

So, is DickRod still employed or what?

T.J. said...

Jake Stoneburner?

T.J. said...

Mallett might throw for 400 yds

T.J. said...

I hope people are watching this very entertaining contest...

TR said...

Knicks-Spurs is 90-82 with 5 minutes left. In the 3rd quarter.

rob said...

arkansas' defense - not very good

T.J. said...

Patriots are drafting Sanzenbacher for sure.

T.J. said...

Patriots are drafting Sanzenbacher for sure.

rob said...

tackle somebody already

Igor said...

So Rob didn't get what he wanted in the game last night. I suppose that's karma reacting to him stealing socks from orphans.

Wow, I just saw the coat Clyde Frazier was wearing for Knicks/Spurs last night.

Wow.
