I was thinking along these same lines the other night the moment I heard some radio head say something like "well, they can't play the disrespect card this year."
I mean, getting passed over for Drew Henson the wonderkind while you're still the starter and led the team to it's best year in a while? Then getting picked 199th, and that's just supposed to fade away?
Curran did a great job adding some of the other players too - Harrison, Seau, Wilfork and Seymour, though he focused more on injury.
To that, I would add:
Bill Belichick - told he could never be a head coach by his own mentor Parcells. A Failure in Cleveland.
Bob Kraft - a side show character who just owned the stadium then the guy who "blew up" the one good thing the Pats ever had (Parcells), just like all the other failed owners before him.
Corey Dillon - told he would never be a "team player" or a winner
Seymour - insert Borges draft day quote here (a long list of "tweener" types who were too short, too small, too slow, too large, too whatever for any one spot).
Vrable - barely a backup in Pittsburgh
Neal - not even a football player
Meriweather - just another "punk from the U."
