I think the thing that still irks me the most is Tillman trading away the 1st and 4th round picks for the Frodo kicker from Montreal, saying Shaw needed help, and then never playing him, other than one ill-fated FG attempt. What a year.
I agree. I find it hard to believe that there wasn't a market for a QB of RR's abilities. There should have been three or four teams wanting him. Its hard to believe all we could get were some washed up used parts.
