Unbelievable

So fat butt Woodley is coming back this week, his vagina feeling better, and back he goes to his old spot even though Worilds vastly outplayed him. Jason goes back to the right side, where he says he never felt as comfortable as on the left, the side where he played DE as a Hokie.

You know how this is going to play out. Worilds will play somewhere else next year, they will let him play on the left side, and he will go back to being a stud. LaMarrrr will still be fat, will miss 4 or 5 games with a sore vag, and be the subject of 11 or 12 WoodenDong reports from Mill.

This will be just like Keenan Lewis, who only saw action in 13 games his first two years, finally starts as a 4th year guy, and plays out his rookie contract with the Steelers, who won't pay him what the market will bear since he's mediocre. But amazingly for the Saints he becomes Pro Bowl material:

So the Steelers are guilty of both types of error: playing people they shouldn't (e.g., Hood, Woodley) and not playing people they should (e.g. Worilds, Lewis).

Why don't we take a quick look at the 2009 draft. Much has been made about the 2008 draft, how we don't have a single player from that draft on the team. Most of those players were busts. But IMHO 2009 is even worse, not just because the players are no longer on the team, but because they are good enough to be starters for other teams!

1. Hood. Starts(?) for us. Turd. So bad I doubt he will start for another team when released by us.
3. Urbik. Starting O-lineman for Buffalo
3. Wallace. Starting Receiver for Miami
3. Lewis. Starting DB for New Orleans
5. Burnett. 1 year in NFL
5. Summers. Backup RB for Buffalo
6. Harris. 2 years in NFL
7. Shipley. Starting O-lineman for Buffalo
7. Johnson. Still playing for us as a backup, unfortunately.

For most teams this would be regarded as a fantastic draft, in Year 5 you've got 7 of 9 still playing in the NFL, 5 of them starting. But only one is starting for us, and he sucks. Arguably the only player in this draft we got value from was Wallace, as Hood sucks and we only got one full year of starting play out of Lewis. Urbik was kicked to the curb after one year, but he's on his second contract with Buffalo. Hey, maybe he's not the greatest o-lineman going, and neither is Shipley, but look at who we are playing?

Both types of personnel error: playing people who shouldn't, not playing people who should.

The only word you wrote that I take issue with is "unbelievable"...

error: Shipley starts for the Ratbirds not Buffalo. And this is a Pittsburgh kid.
