I'm REALLY glad we didn't trade up for or reach for Sam Baker or Duane Brown in the first round like some other teams.

Manningham. I was disapointed that the Giants took him too. Maybe fellow Michigan WR Amani Toomer can straighten his punk ass out. I hate young, punk, millionaire atheletes. ...and this one DEFINITELY needs to be humbled.

I agree...I also brought up that Tony Hills has as much upside as Duane Brown...Only difference the Texans reached for Brown in the first while the Steelers were able to snag Hills in the 4th....Only knocks on Hills is health....Sam Baker is soft and I'm so glad he isn't a Steeler...

I'm so glad Otah or Cherilus wasn't picked in the first....I thought Otah was vastly over-rated and to much of project...I had Cherilus rated as a 2nd round guy...

its seems otah slipped cause no teams were really projecting him beyond RT. if thats the case, i'd probably rather had cherilus.
