Really? are people so pathetic they have to hold on to this story? I really hate the bleacher report...let go of the jBust story already...its history...how about talking about what players we have now or are trying to re-sign or why we aren't...that is something to talk about.

Yes, it's Al's fault. He is a horrible draft manager and has been for years. His few good picks have never made up for years and years of failure, especially all the wasted picks on safeties and DBs, while his O line has been lacking for years. It's old news. And Belicheat got lucky with Brady. It happens. But JaMarcus' Wonderlick and character (or lack of it) were well known and Al took a huge risk. BIG mistake. Let's move on.
