    The thing that stings about Woolfolk was that we could have had Asomugha instead. He went 3 picks later. FML

    Henry didn't even see the field. The guy was terrible.

    Neither of them were that good when healthy, so I don't give either of them a pass, or Floyd Reese for drafting them.

    Tank could hit but was piss poor in coverage, both before and after his knee injuries. If you wanted to make excuses for Tank, you could blame his injuries, but that wouldn't be true.

    Calico had terrible hands, which was something that couldn't be blamed on his injuries. I remember when he sucked so bad in the 2005 season opener, that he was benched for rookie Brandon Jones for the second game of the year. It's not a good situation when a rookie in his second NFL game is already better than a second-round draft pick in his third NFL season.

    Vince wasn't the biggest bust. But he was the biggest disappointment personally for me.

    When a QB doesn't succeed it's magnified much more than when a CB is a bust. The team mortgages their future on a top 5 pick for QB. A CB is just a piece of the puzzle that is a whole defense.

    Same sort of thing went down when we drafted Kevin Dyson. Coulda had Randy Moss.

    I voted Chris Henry. It was really between him and Andre Woolfolk for me. They just took Henry because of his combine workout, I think he ran like a 4.3 in the 40 or something, but I don't think the dude was even the starter in college. IDK how he got taken with the 2nd pick, maybe it was a mistake.

    He did have a long touchdown run with one of his 1st carries though didn't he? I remember thinking "hey he might be good after all". Looking back I think he just accidentally stumbled into a hole and just took off bc his vision was absolutely terrible.

    I voted Vince

    It all boils down to how he left. When I saw him play against USC, I KNEW he was going to be an amazing player. He took control of the the team and won that game. We selected him and he had an amazing rookie season and a few after. Yes, it was peppered with strange events, but I thought that was just him having trouble adjusting to NFL life and he would turn it around.

    It is fair to say Jeff did not trust him, but he had so much talent, just alittle patience and work would have went a long way with him. His pad throwing incident, and his locker room tantrum just killed everything about him. Who seriously says "I'm not walking out on the team, I am walking out on you"?

    That year was the biggest embarrassment for Tennessee football. We knew what we could possibly get with Pac-Man, and Woolfolk was not a quarterback. It is really hard for any player to put forth as much disappointment as Vince did.

    Paul F*ing Williams!!! just reading that name pisses me off. Paul Williams was so awful that he even sucked in Madden! By far the player is dislike the most in Titans history. Not only because we drafted him, but year after year I kept seeing his name on the roster. What was Fisher thinking?!?!?! Cut him already already! But nope... he was still there, while so many other young receivers with potential were cut instead.

    :grrr:
