Im seeing it on twitter about booing Russ and some saying they will not boo Bobby.
Why? I understand Russ wanted out and Bobby did not. However, Bobby picked a rival instead of the Ravens.
I always say similar about Rick Mirer. People always say how bad that pick was. He had a decent rookie year (shared offensive rookie of the year with Bettis) and then the trade to Chicago resulted in taking Shawn Springs at #3, and probably more importantly the extra high pick in the 1st got us Walter Jones. And during the time he was here, this team was way more than a good QB away from being competitive.Nobody is gonna' boo Bobby.
As for Mr. Unlimited? I'm not sure I'm coordinated enough to boo and shed tears of joy at the same time. In exchange for the 75th pick in the 2012 NFL draft, we've received 2 1sts, 2 2nds and 2 starters?
I've never loved that man as much as I love him today.
I do see that both sides are partially responsible, but I feel as though we will learn a lot about Russ this year. Behind the scenes stuff. He was the NFL darling when he entered the league, and he earned it, but things have been different for a handful of years. And I believe John saw it and tried to get out in front of it. The team relied and shaped to fit Russ, but Russ is not the same player he was 7-10 years ago.
