    .....but I laugh my ass off every time I read it................!!!!

    On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson or the second-best tackle in the draft in Kenyatta Walker, they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.

    - Ron Borges, MSNBC after 2001 Draft.

    But it is still a laugher...and to me makes Borges even more irrelevant!!! Wish there was a web site that listed all his poor words..would be good for many laughs!!

    This quote is like a fine wine. It only gets better with age especially now that Koren Robinson may be suspended for the season and David Terrell is ...does anyone know where David Terrell is?

    Here is one more to keep this thread going -:)

    "Could it be that future generations of Patriots fans will be telling their grandchildren about their team winning their lone Super Bowl back in 2001, only to banish their best player to a divisional rival less than two years later, thus initiating Milloy's Curse? - George Kimball, Boston Herald, 9/11/03"

    Possibly the greatest and most ill-said quote in NFL draft history. If any 'new' fan wants to know about Borges, this quote perfectly sums up his complete incompetency.

    one more borges-

    "Belichick will not be so lucky. He doesn't have (Jimmy) Johnson's personality, which can be as jovial and charming as a snake oil salesman's. Worse, this Patriot team isn't going to win two Super Bowls any time soon... - Ron Borges, Boston Globe, 11/22/01"

    If someone could dig up the 2001 SB prediction with the 77-0 Rams blowout, that would top off the thread pretty nice.
