    That's why scouts and front office people put so much stock in the mental faculties of prospects these days. They could call that the Ryan Leaf rule.

    Nine picks in the first three rounds of the next three drafts. Ridiculous since it was for a running back already with a lot of mileage on him. That was highway robbery.

    That is one of the biggest in league history. In fairness one may never know because Marino should've won a few Lombardies with Shula and didn't. Who knows if the Steelers would've done any better.

    I'll never forget Walsh taking over for the Bears in 94? when they were real sorry, Kramer and Matthews were both in the hospital, Walsh comes in because Wannestadt was the def coordinator on Miami, and boom...Walsh goes like 8-1(?) or something.
