What was your worst take ever?

Two stand out for me:

 

1) Rob Johnson.  I still think it was probably the right choice to start him against Tennessee, but I was way too confident in his ability to be a top-flight QB going forward.

 

2) I don't remember exactly when I thought this, but I felt really good about Trent Edwards at one point.  Then he got concussed and sucked from then on.  Not sure if it was the concussion or he always sucked and the concussion was just a coincidence, but either way I was way off here.

 

Regarding Johnson... I just couldn't get behind it.  It was a tremendously poor first half, and I still can't believe he came out to start the 2nd half.  Worst offensive output of the season yardage wise.  Meddling owner cost the team a shot at a super bowl.

I really liked the Rex Ryan hire.

That Nathan Peterman had a shot at becoming a solid QB in the NFL.

I was in a bar of Bills Backers outside Philly when he came in and threw for like 115 yards in his first quarter of play. We were all going nuts in this room high fiving, SALVATION had arrived, etc. Boy was I wrong. 

 

Give him a little credit, he did everything he could to win that Homerun Throw-Forward game against a good defense. 

I happened to be in a sports bar and saw the a game he played with Tampa Bay. Please trust me, he was perfect. He was throwing great, accurate passes and they upset the team they were playing.  Worse yet, I saw one of his college games in which he was also great. So great that I wanted the Bills to draft him but ya know, he lasted until the 1st pick of the 4th round. Sometimes the scouts are right.

 

Anyway, Wade HAD to have seen the Tampa game that I saw. I remember him at a press conference welcoming in the "Rob Johnson Era." 

Seriously! :)

Brad Banks was the best QB in the 2003 draft class - he went undrafted.

 

QBs drafted: 

Carson Palmer
Byron Leftwich
Kyle Boller
Rex Grossman
Dave Ragone
Chris Simms
Seneca Wallace
Brain St. Pierre
Drew Henson
Brooks Bollinger
Kilff Kingsbury
Gibran Hamdan
Ken Dorsey

 

In hindsight, those drafted only accounted for 3 more pro bowls than Brad or I earned... so it wasn't that far off.

When Mahomes was drafted, I thought he was a guaranteed bust.

He and Trubisky were the QBs that I did not want in that class.  Mahommes college game wouldn't translate to the NFL where players are bigger and faster.

that Jimmy Grapes was bound for HOF..........oh boy not on track as of now. But for a hot minute he could do no wrong when he first got to the Niners and was sling/n and winn'n. 

Won his first 7 starts including first 5 with a Niners team that looked very avg.. I thought he elevated them like a star QB can.

Injury with Niners maybe set him back but he has fallen back to below mid level avg now.

This reminds me of the time I read the draft reports on a Division III record breaking QB from Mount Union College.  I thought he was at worst a 3rd round pick.  He went undrafted and bounced around some practice squads and in 1996 won a championship in the World League.  In 1997 the Bills signed him & I was sure he was going to be the Bills starting QB for years.  In August 1997 I went to the only preseason game I've ever been to because I wanted to see him play & cheer him on as the next great Bills QB.  He never made the Bills 53 man roster.  His name is Jim Ballard.
