    Is there a bigger NFL draft bust in recent memory than Gallery? He's an epic bust, Mandarichian in scale. I like to watch the Raiders just to see him get beat on every play.

    Oops Someone beat me to it.
    He was bad enough to mention him at least twice

    I'm a bit torn about Gallery.... being a fellow Tri-Rivers Conference alum, it was cool to see a kid from a neighboring team go big time, but then again he was a hawkeye and plays for the raiders. His brother Nick was a helluva an athlete as well. Not sure what is in the water in eastern Buchanan County.

    Yeah, I was going to post that but ya already had it nailed.

    I think/hope a change of scenery would help Gallery.

    I think a good Coach would help Gallery too, and him getting changed from right to left tackle over and over can't help the technique. I think he's gotten jacked around so much it'd be hard to get settled.

    I'd actually like the Chiefs to pick him up, I think he definitly has talent and they have a huge need at Tackle.

    Whatever is in the water turns you into a huge trailor-park trash scurveball apparently.

    I read somewhere that Ryan Leaf is now a golf coach for some small college down in Texas

    I thought I had read that he got a QB coach job at a smaller Texas school.

    The college couldn't pay him to be the QB coach so they gave him the golf coaching job so they could pay him and keep him as a QB coach too.

    Uh, probably his disgusting hair and general dirty appearance that would make Pigpen envious. I'm assuming you have some personal connection to him and I'm sure he's a "great" guy but you have to remember that I can't say something good about Hawk players because I have an inferiority complex.

    You can't be a fan of his since you didn't graduate from UI.

    I may think of Mandarich as the number 1 bust.....he was drafted ahead of Barry Sanders, Derrick Thomas, and Primetime Sanders. I put him as the number one bust for the same reason that Sam Bowie was number 1 bust in the NBA: drafted ahead of one Mike Jordan.

    Yeah good point with Bowie. I bet Olowakandi is happy that there were only a couple guys in his draft that turned out really well or he'd be bball's worst NBA bust. I guess I don't follow the NBA anymore so maybe he's gotten a little better, but I know for a couple years he was terrible. Hey speaking of Prime Time, remember when that idiot tigershoops31 started that ridiculous thread about him being our new D-backs coach?! That moron got shredded for that one! :eek4wd:

    Yeah, what an idiot. I hear he's now running the winter season frozen ice stand in Garden City by the co-op. Business is not exactly booming...

    I nominate Eric HesAMan Crouch, a bigger bust than higest rated running back of all time, Lawrence Can't mess Up Phillips.
