Thanks again Ted Thompson!
Once again, Ted Thompson the genius, proves that......well.......he is not so much of a genius. His 1st round "steal" of Justin Harrell in the 2007 NFL draft was just put on the pup list meaning he cannot suit up for game play until week 7. Many wondered why Ted decided to reach for an injured DT, when a) he was injured and played like 10 snaps that season b)the team already was deep in the position meaning if Justin even was healthy, he probably wouldn't see the field and c)the team had other areas of need ie. the secondary. In his rookie campaign, when the guy finally healed, he showed little to justify his hype and was constantly getting is a** thrown around and made very few tackles. So here we are in his 2nd year, with what looks to be another year with very little production from him. Keep this up Ted, and you will begin to approach Ron Wolf's level of incompetence of drafting in the first round. Maybe this is why you repeatedly decide to trade down.......because you honestly don't know who to take at that spot. How does one state gather so much incompetence in it's sports management?
