Who in your oppinion was the biggest bust we have ever hsd? This is for 1-2 round players that did not preform to our expectations. 3rd rounders are allowed as well.

In my opinion travis taylor, since he was a top 10 pick.

It has to be Kyle Boller in terms of what we gave up to get him.

That is far from the point. He was a 2nd round pick that maybe played 20 snaps for us and is now out of the league. That is the definition of a bust. Regardless of how much you like him it doesn't change the fact that he was a wasted pick.

Boller. Not even close. Dude had Ogden watching his back, and an overall solid OL, Jamal and Heap, and some absurd defenses....and still managed to be one of the worst starting QBs in the game.

And as rmw said, we paid out the rear for that priviledge

And he helped destroy that 2004 draft class which is just laughable.  We didn't hit on one player from that draft.

Run blocking wasn't the issue. Pass blocking was, so it's kind of harsh throwing Boller under the bus like that as he really didn't have a lot of time in the pocket. We had big maulers up front, Mulitalo, Flynn, Bennie Anderson, Zeus, they were awful when it came to pass protect. Also Kyle did involve Heap heavily, he was a top 3-5 TE during that time I think. Outside of Heap he didn't have anybody to throw the ball to. Randy Hymes, Travis Taylor, Frank Sanders...yuck.

 

That said, he is a bust of course and he didn't even come close to playing up to his potential. A wasted pick. But he really didn't have a lot of help. I always feel like picking his side whenever we discuss busts. I still remember some of our "fans" cheering when he got injured and they had to cart him off the field, that's how much hatred some people had towards him yet he never said a bad thing, always stayed classy and even went beyond that saying he understands those "fans". He was also tough as nails. Can't forget the Chucky face he kept making whenever he took a big shot. He gets up, he's injured/hurt, he sucks it up and keeps going. How can you hate that guy. Can we bring him back please? :)

He had Pro Bowl talent and showed those skills whenever he was healthy, unfortunately he was made of glass.

Kyle Boller.

 

Almost ruined the franchise.

 

I'm sorry but its true. Even the Greatest Defense of all time couldn't compensate 

 

 

best plays of Kyle Boller's career right here:

 

 

 

 

I swear this dude would have been better as a WR, which isn't saying much

I was going down the list thinking Dan Cody and thinking everybody forgot about him. Then the last three posts. Lol. Damn I wanted to be the first. Him and Kindle tie for me. Boller and Taylor were actually starters for awhile so I can't consider them total busts. Just bad picks.
