Very true, but they did stumble into Tony Romo the year before as an UDFA.

I'll leave it until tomorrow, but you're right, 2005 could have been an epic draft for some.

Snee is really the cherry on top.
ok honest question was getting Eli better than staying put and drafting Rivers and then having a player like Shawne Merriman with the 2005 1st round pick you also gave up.

And the next few years won't look any prettier.
are you dreading 2007 even more.......

yes, how many SBs did that Chargers side win with those 2


also we would of taken Ben, its harder to know how that would of worked out.



but when you get 2 SBs its hard to argue another path, especially when the 2nd one was so much about him (the first 1 the D were the driving force but he played a key role and made important plays.)

if Plax hadnt of shot himself they might of been back to back.

Certainly was a fine group. As usual Miami missed out on any of that home grown bunch instead drafting Miami OT, Vernon Carey

To be fair Carey was pretty good at RT for the Dolphins - just a shame his career ended after 8 years

Steven Jackson was a great pick at #24. Just a shame he had to carry some terrible Rams teams on his back. On a better team he'd be HoF candidate. Had it all

It's interesting to think if those 3 came out now how they'd be viewed as prospects. I feel like with the modern emphasis on extending plays and playing out of structure that Big Ben would be seen as the stand out number 1 pick? Or would where he played still count against that?

Eli used to extent the odd play too


hard to know, i think teams still like pocket guys if they they the tools.


we had it something like



Eli






Ben




Rivers


clearly the Chargers had it Eli then some kind of gap to Rivers and i guys Ben in 3rd.
