Media bastards and their lousy criticism, er...speculation. What do they know.

Their worst teams:

Chiefs - D
Dolphins - D
Redskins - D
Browns - F

Well its because we have drafter every DT bust out there.

Do they factor in the Trent Green DV trade?

I'd almost give them an F

Any team and support staff that spends that much time analyzing players and pulls off such bad picks in the early rounds should be fired. The only reason they aren't getting an F is their mid to late rounds salvages them. But, the sad fact is- they've blown their chances with getting playmakers early.

We're easily the worst in the division over that span. And Carl gets a new deal because the seats are filled... :shake:

Trent Green was not a draft pick


i believe this was about the ability to draft good players, not avoid drafting players by trading your picks away.

You guys hate Peterson with a passion, but it's your passionate love for the Chiefs that keep him employed. Crazy when you think about it.

Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

I'd say a D is about right. I loved when they pointed out how we spent a 3rd on Stickboy. The Downing pick was bad, but the Minnis pick was so bad it was funny.

I'd also love to fire whoever is in charge of accurately predicting whether or not our first round picks will sustain injuries that will end their careers in the NFL prematurely.

Very well said. Its sad that Lamar mistakes that passion for the team as anything that Carl has done over the past 10 years.

I think the Broncos got screwed... No credit for some great linebacker drafting. We should at least crack a B- for that and our runningback drafts... Those two positions are the backbone of the team, and we're finishing among the tops of the league in both.

San Diego better get at least a B for the picks they've had, 3 top five draft picks in that time period.

I think in giving a D to the Chiefs. No stars in that time and only 3 starters (Wesley, Fujita, Sims). These guys haven't even made our team depth any better because many of them are not able to adequately fill in for anything other than special teams.

And most are even horrible at special teams! D is proably accurate, but it sure feels like an F.

Maybe we can grade them an FU? As in a big ol FU those who are not real fans. After all, the real fans have never complained about his draft ineptitude. :banghead:
