The MW pick was bad at the time, they never needed a WR, he was out of football for an entire year, and they had alot of other needs at the time...MW wasn't even the prospect Rogers was, at least Rogers had 4.28 speed, prototype size at 6'3 200+ lbs, college production to boot, his final 2 years he had over 1200 yds and 12 TD's, as well as being in the state of Detroit...I can't blame Millen for that one, it was just his affection for WR's that took off after this year that spiraled out of control.

Well I can remember Hoge going ballistic with the Rodgers pick. Rodgers had character issues coming out of Michigan State if I remember correctly and that was a big strike against him. He had the physical ability, but he didn't have the mindset.

On a sidenote

I believe Hoge has been one of the most accurate draft analysts over the past 5 or 6 years. He said he wouldn't have taken Leinert or Young in the first 3 rounds, but would have taken Cutler. I believe he said Big Ben was the better QB coming out (I don't think that was a homer pick). It seems like every year he and Jaws are pretty dang accurate. Which sucks since I still hold anger at Jaws for being an Eagle.

The problem is...that kicker is still playing for Oak. How many of the players Millen drafted are still playing? Stop me when you heard enough:
Mike Williams
Charles Rodgers
Joey Harrington
Kalimba Edwards

what's even sadder is aside from Edwards none of them are even in the league anymore

Harrington is on the Ravens ;-) ;-D

Saints now :-o :-D

Matt Millen is OUT. You can take him off the worst current GM list. Looks like Davis claims the #1 spot. Any other candidates?
Go Bears!

The heir to the throne is definitely Al Davis.

I don't know who the worst is now. All I know is that until Lord Ford hires the next Lions GM, the worst GM in the league is not on the Lions.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I didn't read all of the posts, but their is no doubt that Carl Peterson is the worst GM in the league.

The Raiders and Al Davis have won a Superbowl in the past 30 years. Al Davis and most other General Managers goal is to win superbowls

Carl Peterson was Hired by the Hunts to get people in the stands and to make money. So in actuallity he isn't the worst GM as he has succeeded at making money for the Hunts. He's the worst fan GM.
