Revelations from 2005

I just finished watching the NFL Network's "Dilemma of the #1 Pick", a historical look at specific instances of the consequences of scouting when selecting the first player in each annual draft. In the last ten minutes, the 2005 slide of Aaron Rodgers was profiled, and I nearly jumped off of the nearest tall building.

Unbeknownst to me and to my still-stinging chagrin, it was revealed that Jon Gruden called Rodgers as he fell down the boards, promising the eventual MVP calibre, Super Bowl winning, current highest rated passer in NFL history to inform him that (cue Chucky voice) "If you're still sittin' there at 5, we're going to take you." I had no idea. This was the first that I'd heard if this. Why God, why?

Now, for due diligence, Caddy Williams was a desperately needed running back for a team that lacked offensive playmakers, and his career certainly never reached its full potential due to horrible injury, but....Aaron Rodgers. Let's all take a collective moment of silence to think about that....just think. Nope, don't comment yet. Silence. Consider it. Okay, now leave a comment.
