stinks to be him.

Matt JOnes does look good. I was really hoping to get him. This does surprise me though. Edwards single handedly just about kicked our tails last year.

He was an underachiever ever since the day we drafted him too high..

Sucks to be him...someone desperate for a reciever will pick him up.

What a waste of a 1st rounder.Anyone have a list of successful players we could have drafted instead?
