Why Daniel Coats is so high on that list is strange. Seems to be just a cherry picked bench warmer. Did he even take snaps for us last year?

Maybe now that Ayers is back at his natural position we'll see some more production.

How does Brady Quinn not get a top 10 mention here? Ayers? Are you kidding me? Granted, he was playing totally out of place in the 3-4 but he damn sure wasn't 'least valuable'.

yeah I think it is unbelievably unfair to list Ayers as least valuable...the guy played pretty damn well last year on a piss poor unit

NoShawm is useless. He can hardly block...supposedly his strong suit. He can't run in space. He's slow. He has poor vision. At no time should he have been a first round pick. Selvin Young was better. Hopefully this changes for Nosharn...but as of now...he's a bust somewhere between Ryan Leaf and deathy O'Neal

Certainly you can use a better bust example than a 2x all pro?

Ayers is absolutely ridiculous on that list. He's a bust only if you thought he was going to be a big sack guy. He's by far the best run defender on the team.

He is not the best run defender on this team. Even if he was, you just claimed that being king of the retards means something.

The alleged justification for the list. I can only assume we are paying Coats a boatload to suck if he is 4th ****tiest in the league.

"This list of the 25 worst players in the league accounts for playing time, expectations, and salary. It focuses on the 2010 season without forgetting about those who sucked in 2008 and 2009; in other words, C.C. Brown, you can't hide in Detroit."

He's still a back that averages 4 yards a carry and can catch the ball out of the backfield. Im not sure why being functional makes you USELESS.

That Cutler trade is still paying dividends.

Better sell those #56 jerseys while you can.

KM has not been worth the 15th pick in the draft but he would make a good pass catching/protection back and quality depth. Maybe Fox can find a way to get more out of him but he will have to stay healthy and be in better shape so he gets better in the 4th quarter.

It would be nice to see him exceed TD's 1st year stats.
