The same thing happened to Mingo, and we never had him gain weight or be in a role that made sense.
    And out of the 100s of players we've turned over since our return you can name those 3 and a few others that have gone on to have SOME success with other teams.
    It's staggering how many have left to never become anything better then they were here.
    About half that left here and had any success anywhere else wouldn't have stayed here no matter how much we would have paid them anyway.

    True, only a small group of players that we've drafted have went on to become anything decent in the NFL. The reason, imo, is our lack of talent evaluation and draft ability due to poor talent evaluation. We drafted guys that were either injury prone (albeit, it's hard to know that ahead of time), guys that had off field issues, and the biggest thing is simply drafting sub par talent.

    The reason Was..not is.
    This group has drafted pretty well. It's still early, but you can look across the team and see it.
    Had they not torn the team down, before rebuilding, they would be winning more (any) games now.
    But the guys they have drafted have talent. This year they need to add that franchise QB.

    Didn't Kessler miss a wide open receiver for a deep TD? Or am I dreaming?

    And while we are at it how about we give the FO the same 3 years to see if they have drafted well or not before saying we should fire them because their drafts are bad.
