A bakers dozen of the Greatest NFL first round draft busts!

1. Tony Mandarich - Green Bay
2. Sammie Smith - Miami
3. Todd Blackledge - Kansas City
4. Ryan Leaf, QB 2nd overall pick by the Chargers from Washington State
5. Ken O'Brien - New York Jets
6. Brian Bosworth - Seattle


7. JaMarcus Russell: further proof, if it was needed, that senility and stupidity reign in Oakland! I was going to use an action shot......but this sorry excuse for a professional quarterback isn't ever involved in any!

8. Plaxico Burress - Pittsburgh Steelers







Yeah, he was talented -- as talented as any receiver drafted in recent years, but he never lived up to his immeasurable potential. He was always prickly, and distracted. Out of frustration the Steelers finally let him go to the New York Giants, where the same mix of potential and 'tude frustrated management and fans alike, just like in Pittsburgh. In the end, his off-field shennanigans cost him not only on the field, but his very freedom, as well: after accidently shooting himself in the leg with an unregistered firearm within New York City limits, Burress was convicted of felony weapons possession and sentenced to at least two years imprisonment. Now all New Yorkers can understand how the loyal fans of Pittsburgh can give up on one so exceptionally talented.

Plaxico is a poster child for the repeal of the second amendment. He definitely makes the list.

While he didn't act quite that stupid during his tenure with the Steelers, his inability or lack of desire to run a corner route in the red zone was a constant source of aggrivation.

Dennis

6. 1950 NIT 2nd Rd: #12 CCNY over #3 Kentucky 89-50

Quote:
The City College of New York has not been a basketball power for over 50 years. However, CCNY (often called just "City") holds a distinction that will never be duplicated. In 1950, the Beavers – strange nickname for a Big Apple school – won both the NIT and the NCAA championships in the same year. . . . .

Ranked as high as #7 in the AP poll early in the season, the team slumped to a 17-5 record. The National Invitation Tournament (NIT), considered the most prestigious at the time, was held immediately after the season in Madison Square Garden where CCNY played its city rivals. The Beavers got the 12th and last spot in the field because they swept the "subway series" over the other NYC schools.

They upset the defending NIT champion San Francisco 65-46. The next opponent was #3 Kentucky, whose coach was a well-known racist. Marvin Kalb, CCNY '51 and longtime CBS news reporter, has said: "It was not a basketball game. It was a cultural war, a religious war. It was City College's way of saying, '... screw you, Adolph Rupp. We are also part of this country. It is not just yours. It is ours, too.'" CCNY routed the Wildcats 89-50, the worse defeat in Rupp's career. (The Kentucky flag at the state capitol was flown at half mast the next few days.)
