I'm OK with doing that selectively but can you name ONE player that we've given the quick hook to (inside of 2 years) when he showed absolutely nothing?
    For sure, but guys like Brown and Hill were able to wait in the background until they were needed. With Dodge, he was front and centre every week, literally kicking the season away. He hurt the team just by stepping on the field - how that was permissible I really have no idea.

    I think Sintim is the only one that's come close to that. He lost a year to injury and the team didn't care to wait for him to get better. As shown with Terrell Thomas and Domenik Hixon, they will wait if they believe in the player.

      Everyone has the right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

          Also, Greg Jones. And the Giants weren't patient with Brown. They waived him in his second year. They were fortunate to get him back after he went full round.

            Austin got to his third camp with us. We were way too patient, trying to justify the high pick.
            Dillard was gone unusually quick.
            No one remembers who came in second.

              Austin's time here wasn't unreasonable at all. Three camps, but only once on final roster. If it weren't for some monster camps from Patterson and Rogers, Austin would still be here. I'd rather have him for a remote chance than Kuhn.

                  Oh God, I forgot about Maddox.

                  For those who weren't around, they brought in Dan Reeves in 1993 and there were still enough Parcells guys around to make a good run of it -- they were playing for the division title in the last game of the season vs. Cowboys. Anyway, then they cut Simms the next year and we wandered in the QB desert until Collins was brought in.

                  Maddox was a guy that Dan Reeves drafted in Denver, as a project to replace (some would say undermine) John Elway. Reeves just wouldn't give up on him and brought him here. And if anyone was worse than Dave Brown and Kent Graham, it was Maddox.
