That said, one out of four even sucks in baseball, let alone football.
When you're picking #3, #5, #26 and #11 and you only come away with one legitimate player, the odds aren't good that you'll hit the next time out.
It's time for him to go.
Yeah ... there's something wrong with Berry. Respected Planeteers have said that his knee is okay, but I'm unconvinced. Those surgeries don't go perfectly every time and he may not yet be entirely healed. And, of course, there's also the mental aspect of the injury as you say.
The sickening thing about all of this is that Herm (God, am I about to really say this?) could probably have done a better job of making those 1st round picks than Pioli. Then, you have the added problem of converting Dorsey into a 3-4 DE which (I continue to assert) is inconsistent with his nature or talent. In other words, not only have we whiffed on picks entirely, we made little use of good picks we had (Hali being the exception).
Frankly, it's an incredible situation. I'm not sure you could screw this deal up any more had you intentionally made every effort to do so.
