    I think the "bust" label is used too liberally and I wouldn't consider VY, LW, or Pacman a bust because they all contributed significantly to the team.

    It's between Woolfolk and Chris Henry, I voted Woolfolk because he was a first rounder. We have had a lot of bad selections over the years.

    Forget Demarcus Ware. How about Aaron flippin' Rodgers?!?!?!?

    Yep. He and Henry may have been the worst picks in franchise history. Paul Williams was the worst pick.

    A very common issue in the Fisher era. The worst of which is Dyson over Moss in '98.

    I totally agree. I also go with Pacman because there was already a ton of red flags on his character leading up to the draft and we still took him. He is the prime example of wasted talent. This guy was a natural when it came to playing football. His speed, vision, jukes and overall football instincts made him one of the most exciting players in the league and a threat to take it to the house every time he touched the ball. I honestly think that had he stayed straight and played out his contract with us he would have had more return TDs than Hester.

    Too bad he had zero common sense and couldn't keep out of trouble. When he got suspended for the entire 2007 season it was clear that his career was over. And we were stuck with a huge hole in our secondary and in the return game. He F***ed us. He was on pace to be one of the greats and then it was all gone. He's up there with Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russell if you ask me. And the worst part of it all was that his career with us didn't end due to some freak injury or him fizzing out, his off the field bullsh!+ is what did him in.

    Chris Henry is the only player Blaine Bishop on 3HL just openly mocks. He calls him "Runs to Darkness."

    Usually, those former players try to be nice, but he rips that guy.

    I don't think he ever even got on the field did he?
  6. Fry Hatin' is what I do.

    If you miss on a QB in the top-five you screw yourself for a long time. Bye Bye VY.

    Yeah it's Woolfolk.

    VY- won games, pro bowl, rookie of the year, madden cover, and got a lot of fan love. If he didn't have problems in the head he would still be our starting QB, there are worse picks on here.

    Pacman- We knew what we were getting in to. He was a good CB for us on the field, not the worst CB on this list.

    Chris Henry- oh the humanity

    Lendale White- good player just couldn't stay away from food

    Andre Woolfolk- winner

    Why is Derrick Morgan not on the list?

    Between Chris Henry and Woolfolk... but Henry was worse than Woolfolk. I mean, woolfolk accidentally did some decent things- Henry never did.

    Seriously? Season ending knee surgery his rookie year. Coming off a devastating knee injury his second year.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't have very much confidence in Morgan. But it's way too early to be calling him a bust, much less the biggest bust in Titans history.
