    Completely. Tho it's hard to consider someone a bust when his chance of being on an NFL roster has everything to do with how well he plays special teams lol.

    Personal perception is that I withhold that label for people that have a high level of reputation to continue...

    Like imagine if Te'o comes out and doesn't get picked til near the end of the second... His reputation from college is that he's a sure fire pick and an immediate starter on a pro team... Thus he's drafted high, if he bombs out of the league in 4 years and he's never seen again like his GF... Bust...

    Anyone claiming that a guy is a bust just 2 years into his career is just dumb. Especially when that guy has only played in about 3/4 of a seasons worth of games, and was injured in over half of those.

    But then you say VY was not a bust because he won OROY???? ... I'm sorry, but VY was a bad QB on a good team. He had a solid rookie year because teams didn't know how to defend him against the run, but that is about it. He was terrible in his 2nd year. The only reaseon we went to the playoffs with him was all because of the D, specifically AH who is the same reason we went the next year under KFC.

    VY really didn't start to look like a real NFL QB until his 4th or 5th year, then he threw a tantrum and got the entire staff blown up.


    So basically the only way to not be considered a bust is to have instant success, and then forget about the rest, right?

    How is it not Vince Young?

    Third overall pick in the draft absolutely wasted because the owner wanted him. Not only should he have not been drafted there, he was coddled his entire time here because the owner loved him. "VY IS MY GUY!"

    "He lead us to the playoffs!" No he didn't. He rode the coattails of a top-three defense to the playoffs. 18.6 points per game allowed by that 2007 defense. It shouldn't be hard to score 19 points a game. Lost to the Chargers because we couldn't score two touchdowns and a field goal. That's all we needed to force OT.

    Dude had more turnovers than touchdowns in his career. Constantly injured. Constantly a distraction. Constantly not very good.

    Locker might be there with him when it's all said and done as far as stats, but he will never be the headache VY was. Ever.

    I won't say VY because he actually contributed to the team. IMO he's not even a bust but certainly I would say he was a terrible pick.

    My vote would be Woolfolk followed by Chris Henry. Guys that literally never did anything.
