You gotta be kidding me. You don't think Pacman was a bust at the #6 overall pick?

Maybe because of off the field issues. I don't think he has been lacking in talent though.

He is a great punt returner when he's not suspended. He was never consistent at CB. He had flashes, but he gave up big plays a lot too. Not a very good tackler at all. Always suspended. Bust imo.

I also think Leinhart is a bust although nobody expected him to do anything anyway.

bledsoe never lived up to the hype in newengland....
he couldnt avoid sacks..he mosdef could not complete a screenpass nor a quickdump off to a rb to save his life..
when he went down against the jets in 01 all of newengland was fuckin pumped!!
he was also given i believe a not 2 shaby cowboy team also an couldnt win the big game..

http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Drew_Bledsoe

any intelligent patriot fan will tell u that bledsoe never lived up 2 his # 1 pick or billing..
the only thing that really saved him in the memories of new england fans was him coming off the bench in the 01 championship game in pittsburg.
he rarely had a season where he threw more td's than int's
bledsoe will never make the hall..

LaVar Arrington????????

# 3 Pro Bowl selection (2001, 2002, 2003)
# 2 Second-team All-Pro selection (2001, 2003)



i wouldn't really call him a bust, and not cuz i'm a skins fan. he may have just had the shit deal of never being allowed to do his thing and run wild. and liek 7 different d-coordinators too.

Bledsoe was not a bust.

Tim Couch and Ryan Leaf were busts.

Bledsoe took the Pats to a Superbowl

Hell yea.

Dude was disgusting in college, and had at that time everything that looked like he'd be a great LB in the NFL.


His stats over 2 years...

30 tackles, 0 sacks


Lol check this article. This dude called it before he and Run DMC even played a down

A bust is someone who does not have a productive career, not that they just did not live up to their 'hype'. If you call Bledsoe a bust you are basically saying any top 10 pick who doesn't become a hall of famer is a bust. I understand not being a fan of the guy if you are N.E. fan, but your list of busts must be in the hundreds if he is on your list.

http://www.lindyssports.com/tyfoon/site/pages/images/d2fe9fdb779e9a4.jpghow they fuck do you figure that? because he's a Raider?

he was drafted LAST YEAR, and had 85 tackles .5 sacks, and an interception in his 1st year. if he played 15 years and averaged that for his career he wouldn't be considered a bust.
but it's all good, cuz you guess it's safe to say he's a bust.
