    Michael Crabtree edges out Brandon Marshall, IMO, way ahead of the others. Crabtree has yet to play a down in the NFL, but he's already willing to sit out a year because he thinks that someone will pay him *more* next year? He thinks being out of the game for a year, with a proven and unprecedented willingness to hold out for unreasonable money, is going to make someone draft him *higher*? At least Brandon Marshall waited until after he had an NFL career to really trash it.

    Crabtree far and away, with the others there is at least a possible upside to their antics, his his actions are just idiotic. It would be poetic justice if the league institutes a rookie salary cap before next year's draft and he's stuck making the league minimum as opposed to the much bigger money he could get by signing right now.

    maybe Donte Stallworth or Plaxico Burress

    Which makes me wonder if WRs encounter a disproportionate amount of off the field trouble relative to other positions.

    Ralph Wilson/ Dick Jauron. Nothing like signing a 35-year old wide receiver on the downside of his career at the detriment of signing a serviceable offensive line. Did I mention this particular wide receiver is the biggest cancer in the history of professional sports, and your quarterback is nowhere near the other ones he ridiculed? Oh, by the way, let's go ahead and fire our offensive coordinator a week before the season and run a no-huddle offense because it's "cool."

    Jeff Lurie/ Andy Reid. Finally. A team without controversy after all these years, a slew of weapons for Donovan McNabb, and sigh of relief that everyone is happy and ready to focus on football. Surely there is nothing at this point that could destroy our chemistry, right?

    Al Davis. A 30 year old 300+ pound defensive linemen with 9 years of mileage, injury-prone, with one of the worst agents in sports. Let's make sure that, first, he doesn't fit into our 4-3 defense; second, he doesn't want to play here; third, we give up a first-round pick in a year where there is an expected draft cap so we would not finally get value for one of our draft picks. Also, Darius Heyward-Bey is really fast, so let's grab him at #7.

    Favre. Just because he is a friend of Mangini.

    I hope he gets hurt.

    Crabtree without a doubt and handsdown. He's losing an important part of any NFL'er's growth and development and risking losing an entire year of play towards FA status for no obvious financial return; plus, he's getting a reputation as not just a malcontent (there are plenty of guys who've gotten that reputation, rightly or wrongly) but as not knowing how to operate in his own best interest.

    Favre's playing with house money; Rex Ryan is posturing (wrongly, IMO, but he hasn't slugged any of his players or coordinators yet); Marshall isn't worth the bandwith.

    Just saw that another poster added Plaxico. Yeah, he might take the all time NFL Idiot Award (admittedly hard to earn); in fact, he might retire that Award with Oak Clusters and those other thigamajiggies.

    I know it sounds self-righteous and I'll FLAME myself for saying it, but it's bad Karma to wish injury on a Player from another team, even one as self-absorbed as Favre and as classless as he was with the crackback block last week.

    Now I'm throwing salt over my shoulder and promising not to step on any cracks until Tommy gets through the season unhurt.

    Yet you were probably as outraged as anyone to see other fans rejoicing when Brady got hurt last year. Hypocrite.

    I voted for Crabtree because his stance is ludicrious. He feels he should get more money than Darrius Heyward-Bey because eventhough Heyward-Bey was drafted higher than him, that should be discounted because Al Davis should have drafted him instead (granted, he has a point on the last part). Now that he isn't getting that money, he is willing to go back into next year's draft where he is likely to get drafted much lower and he will never get back the money he would have made this year.

    On a side note, Eric Mangini should be on the list of idiots with his "I'm going to surprise the world with who my starting QB is when everyone in the world already knows it is Brady Quinn".

    As much as I hate Favre and Mangini, Crabtree by far.

    How do you figure Richard Seymour may hurt "your" team? I wasn't aware that he pulled the trigger on his own trade then got pissed off about it afterward.

    Anyway, I put my personal hatred for Rex Ryan aside and picked Brandon Marshall. One of the brightest offensive minds comes into town, begins implementing a system that would be to your benefit to learn, and has the best long term plans for the team in mind and you act like a baby over the team not wanting to give you a contract because you've been arrested more times Johnny Depp in "Blow"? Not to mention you get caught ON CAMERA jerking around in practice and then attempt to deny it in front of a broad audience? Yes, folks, that's an idiot. Ryan is a big mouth and he's not that bright, but I wouldn't consider him an idiot. Brandon Marshall is.

    Theres no possible way for Richard Seymour to hurt the patriots outside of some weird scenario that involves the Raiders making the playoffs.

    He's a distraction to the Faiders. If you think that this team is going to go into the season distracted by what's going on with Seymour, then you don't know Bill Belichick very well.

    There are lots of choices, including many that didn't make the poll. Here are some more I haven't seen mentioned, although I may have missed them in perusing the thread:

    Goodell
    Childress
    Tannenbaum
    "Pacman" Jones
