You are getting to be as insolent as Rusty Bucket. I'm a f @ckin' Giants fan and what do looks have to do with winning the SB? TB can have Gisele all he wants, just give us the trophy. You have enough of Rusty to deal with.
But in your support, Babe, after reading the same redundant diatribe from your genius nemesis, here are actual facts about BB's drafting prowess. We all know that all GMs will make unproductive choices in the draft. Here's a copious list of misses by arguably the best coach in the NFL.
One of the biggest blunders in Pats' history is picking Eason before Marino. Thirty years ago and obviously prior to BB.
The biggest fact about BB's coaching ability are his records production pre TB. Cleveland 43 winning %. Bledsoe 45%. He's over 75% with TB. Knew that would make you happy. Fudder for future confrontations with RG.
Let's start. In 2001, BB inherited Parcell's team build up from previous years and 2 high picks in the '01 draft with the likes of Willie Mc and Seymour. BB does get credit for luring Harrison and Vrabel, two free agents. Now we turn to draft follies. Passed on Matthews chosen at 26, but should have been a top 10. He did get, in a trade down, Gronk, Hern and McCourty. That was pretty good until all these BS goings on are presently occurring. He passes on Jarius Byrd and takes Chung. Passes on Mike Wallace & Greg Jennings picks Brandon Tate. Picks Bethel Jackson, while Osi, Witten & Boldin still on the board. Picks Graham with Ed Reed on the board. Picks Maroney with Hester, Jones-Drew and Jennings still up. Picks Thomas and Mills with Dumervill & Brandon Marshall on the board. Busts: Merriweather/24, Wheatley/62, Butler/41, Dowling/33, Wilson/48, Maroney/21 and there's probably a short list more. When I first read about BB's draft record, all I could think of was RG vehemently defending BB and proclaiming him the greatest GM. With tallies like these, it's pretty difficult to agree with his promotional drivel.
Peace & have a great day.
