Uh, didn't they actually draft Jamal Lewis and Travis Taylor the same year?

Cade McNown was notorious for two things not related to football. He had a habit of parking his vehicle in spaces reserved only for the handicapped. If that wasn't bad enough, he also earned a lifetime ban from the Playboy Mansion for hitting upon one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends one time too many.

Glad to see ya front and center, Bill. Lookin good. Well, except for the fact that you seemed to confuse the Indy Colts with the Baltimore Colts. Not a real smart thing to do around here, Bill.
And with regard to the Ravens first round busts, actually, you got half of it right. Travesty Taylor probably dropped more key passes than he ever caught. But it was a two-fer year, Bill. Remember? We had the great fortune to have drafted Taylor AND Boller that year. Wow. Is that a year to remember, or what? Remember, in the sense of DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN!
Great article, man. Really.
Boller was drafted along with Suggs. Taylor was drafted along with Jamal.

LOL. Yeah. I think I started the pre-draft party just a little too early. My bad.

How conveniently kind of you to suggest that Travis Taylor was the Raven's biggest 1st round flop. Come on, Boller is hands down the true answer.
Boller's selection cost this team at least several playoff appearances, if not another Super Bowl. This was true in several of the early years and especially 2004 (not entirely his fault, the year was saved by Anthony Wright in Boller's absence.) The most glaring year was 2005, when Boller stunk it up to lose 3 must win games in a row to miss the playoffs at 9-7.
Travis Taylor was a disappointment, but we got Jamal in the same round. And Travis Taylor did not set this team back for the better part of a decade like the Boller pick did. I don't know why the media in this city continue to sugar coat the worst draft move in Ravens' history.
