    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.

    Ryan Leaf - #2 Overall Pick 1998 San Diego

    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.
