Who isn't thrown under the bus in this story?
#1
Seems no one really wanted Klingler or Smith ... at least that bad. But, they ended up here.

Good stuff from the major players involved in those QBs that really set the franchise back.

Yikes. Mikey has no problems throwing Dave Shula under the bus for David Klingler.

I remember Akili was pegged to be a second rounder after the college football season that year. Coslet's comments that the coaches had him rated at the bottom of the group makes sense. I think it was clearly Mike Brown who overvalued and made that pick.

QBs are such a guessing game in the draft it seems over the years... We overvalued Smith... Couch was overvalued.. Brady was like a 5/6 pick.. I know there is research out there that I looked at couple years ago that ranked the best position to draft in 1st round and the worst position when it comes to success rate.. I believe QB was at the bottom of the list.

We sucked then, we suck now. However, a corner is soon to be turned. Let's just hope we're not taking the road to purgatory. When Mike is no longer in the picture and neither is Marvin, we may see a rainbow.

Seems like mike deferred to Shula on the klingler pick and seemed to override Coslet on the smith choice.

I remember reading that coslet wanted to roll with blake which may be the reason mike was in desperation mode for a qb.
