Which player was biggest bust?
 
Which player do you feel was the biggest bust for us this year.
1. Aaron Brooks?
2. Tebucky Jones?
3. Donte Stallworth?
4. Dale Carter?
5. Michael Lewis?
6. Ashley Ambrose?

I'd have to go with Stallworth. His early drops cost us games, and his constant absence hurt both our depth and gameplanning. He was supposed to stretch the field and loosen up the middle for more production from the TE's and RB screens.
I'm not giving up on the kid yet but I think he's at the top of the list of players that didn't step up and perform.

I\'ll go with Stallworth also. Followed by:

2. Dale Carter.

The rest I wouldn\'t consider busts. I\'ll put their play at average.

I\'ll go with Stallworth Carter then Jones. The only reason Jones doesn\'t take the top spot is because the other two were barely on the field. Although when Stallworth was he did little to say he would\'nt take the top spot on this list anyway.


Hey Danno you still haven\'t told us what you did with Tweeky

I\'d have to go with these guys in order.

T-Sucky--We spent WAY too much for him and there\'s no way we can trade him without losing our shirts. He was the real gamble that didn\'t pay off.

Stallworth--I still think we could get a good trade for him. He didn\'t produce for us but we could get something for him if we wanted I guess. He might still be good though.

Brooks--We spent a LOT of money on an average guy, no news there. Just like to see some real improvement or at least a concerted effort.

Carter--I thought he was signed to be a stopgap anyway? The only reason he and Ambrose even make this list is Haslett\'s total refusal to meaningfully address the cornerback position which has been a need since Haslett was hired.

J O N E S!!! The reason? He has played. Not well at all but he has at least had the chance to show what he can do. He has not done that.

Not sure how to quantify this as it is all subjective. I guess in my estimation Stallworth was supposed to have a breakout year (heck, I even traded to get him in my Fantasy league) and he has been a total dud. However, if you talk about acquisitions, it would be Tebucky. If you talk purely in relation to their salary and supposed value to the team that it buys, it would be Brooks.

Stallworth. Really, does it require any argument? The guy can\'t even get on the field, and when he does, he drops pass after pass. I don\'t think he doesn\'t have skill or talent, or that he may be a good player, but he is a total dud this year!

Tweek kept wanting to get into Aaron Brooks debates. .

Actually Tweeky was his name on all his stereo/audio forums. Didn\'t really fit. But he was so computer that it took him a year to discover how to change it.
Besides, he predicted we\'d be 10-6 and in the playoffs. A true

I predicted we\'d struggle early with massive injuries on defense, Officials would give one of our wins away to Carolina, Stallworth would pull a hammy every week, our special teams would implode, Brooks would empty hand 3 throws, and we\'d drop a TD pass per week. I figured 8-8 or 9-7.
