Not one. Have to say Tomlin did well with lucking out with Brown but Hines and Plax are better combo than Wallace Brown. Cowher's earlier lines were formidable. You can't say Tomlin has ever fielded a good line.
I agree on Chad Scott. I thought he turned out to have a pretty decent career after obliterating his knee.

Same for Deion Figures after he got shot in the knee.

They both showed some promise after their rookie years, and they both wound up with serious knee injuries just after.

For some reason everyone wants to criticize them and call them busts, completely forgetting what actually happened to their knees.
