The guys on the first list were complete losses.
    i think overstreet died before he ever played for us. could be mistaken though.

    Legadon't was my favorite nickname.

    Anyway, I'm amazed people are willing to ignore the pick spent on White in choosing Naanee in this poll. Only in the context of opportunity cost does this kind of exercise make even marginal sense, otherwise there's a whole history of practice scrubs and other barely rosterable maggots who rank far below even Naanee in franchise history. Naanee made very little dent in the scheme of things. He didn't cost a pick, a ton of money, lose a game or get anyone hurt. We'll forget about him soon enough.

    White, on the other hand, will live on in Infamy. And for good reason. He was an embarrassment on the field, perpetuated a joke gimmick of an offense, and was also taken just a few picks before the likes of Connor Barwin and LeSean McCoy.

    No, he played some in '83. Even caught a touchdown pass from Marino, I believe.

    If Matthews is active instead of Naanee, not sure we lose the Arizona game. He could've dropped that pass or fell flat on his face after hauling it in, either of which would've made the win much easier than the non-contact fumble, which has to be one of the worst plays I've ever seen any WR make, ever.

    Of course, some of the throws Pat White attempted were some of the worst pass attempts I've ever seen too.

    BTW - go back and look at that 2009 draft as a whole. That draft is chocked full of busts and disappointments, all around, not just our team.

    Except, as bad as it was, Smith's INT and the resulting long touchdown made Lega's booboo irrelevant. It didn't lose us the game at all.

    Well I don't have the machine that takes me to the parallel universe where he holds on to the ball instead of fumbling, but I'd like to think we score a TD on that drive, eat up a bunch of clock and perhaps don't leave Az any time to get their late TD.

    Who the hell knows what happens if the guy holds on to the ball, but I do know it would've increased our odds of winning dramatically over what he actually did. The odds of Az not scoring from inside the 5 after that turnover were extremely low, we got lucky. If he didn't cost us the game, he damn sure tried!

    We definitely got lucky. But I would just argue it's spurious to say it lost us the game considering what came after. Any one of two dozen things lost us the game before that even comes up.

    Anyway, it hardly matters anymore. He's gone.

    Leg actually did something in the league. White didn't. Leg had a far better career.
