    Bobby Grier?

    In recent times, Millen may be the worst of the bunch.

    Over history I'm sure we could find someone from the Cardinals to nominate.

    Great 1st post...I'm sure there are facts to backup others...but from where we sit...Grier takes the cake.

    A strong argument could be made for Tom "I Love Stars" Donahue former Bills GM.

    How about the Colt GM that took Elway in the draft, despite Elway stating he would play baseball before playing for the Colts, and then trading Elway for Chris Hinton?????

    I like Millen's recent move of firing his coach over a QB disagreement, then cutting the QB in question... nice!
    But I wouldn't disrespect Greir's legacy by not stating that he also, really sucked. How many guys was he right on?

    I think their problem was more apathy than stupidity. I'm sure it was a healthy combination of the two but I would lean more toward apathy.

    Bobby Grier - didn't he have one draft where almost every choice was bad (the Chris Canty draft?)

    Millen should be hanged...Mike Brown (I don't know who their GM was in the 80's, but he was terrible), the Bidwells (their GM also is really bad), Booby Grier is stinky for sure, Snyders guy is bad (forgot his name), Jerky Jones was a terrible talent picker, noone knew that Ryan Leaf was going to turn out that bad...but Bobby Beartherd (sp) should be caned for it. Shanahan isn't very good at all either. I could do better.

    I'm thinking the Vikings GM who traded something like 6 picks for Hershel Walker.

    Yes. Another idiot. The Cowboys ethically stole 3 superbowl rings from them.

    Also, I like this guy, but Mike Ditka. Trade away a whole draft for Ricky Williams. WTF????

    The Redskins, who got the gift from Ditka...didn't really do all that much with those picks either (as far as superbowl rings).
