    How many NFL teams were looking for a QB to run the option for them that year?

    GM's are dumb... all sports.

    They rather shy away from a player who is 90% likely to be good and take a guy who is 40% likely to be great.

    In the NBA (obviously a completely, completely diff sport), David West was the college player of the year and everyone shot holes in his game, dropping him to No. 18.

    The rest pretty much is history.

    GM's just sometimes would rather risk it all for the big jackpot than to be smart and get a guaranteed prize.

    I knew you would bring that up.
    But when you win the Championship the next year after that decision and go to the finals the year after that.
    Also 5 straight ECF trips and 5 straight 50 win seasons.

    I think that nullifies that mistake.

    It does and I am just messing with you, but they may have won the title every year had they gotten Melo.

    Broussard's 250 yards against Ole Miss in 2004 remains the Tigers' one-game record, and he rushed for more than 100 yards in each of three bowl games. Yet for a variety of reasons, his LSU career never fully blossomed, and he joined a list of tailbacks the past decade or so -- Cecil Collins, Rondell Mealey, Domanick Davis -- who enjoyed flashing glory in purple and gold.

    Off topic but I strongly disagree with the writer's characterizaton of Domanick Williams' career at LSU as "flashing glory". That guy must not have been in the stands for many of the games.

    He meant it the right way in that he was great as a Tiger but then kinda disappeared/fizzed in the NFL outside of the rookie season.

    Just linking him to Cecil Collins ruins it.
