problem with this post Babe is that EVERY team has a list of players like this. E-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e t-e-a-m... Moreover, a number of the players you list were worth the shot. And in fact the book is not even closed on all of the above.
But again, the real point is that every team misses on a lot of players. In fact, while you could make a case that some GMs have done marginally better - the same way people can disagree about who the best QB or WR is, the only GMs who have undoubtedly done better are the ones with hindsight who never had to actually make the calls in real time.
I do not think he is the very best GM but I think he is a heck of a good one who knows how to build a team that will flourish under him as opposed to a team that will flourish under, say the great Rex Ryan.
