    I'd say our biggest mistake has been trading our best player in each of the last 2 off-seasons. What other team can manage that? We go out, we get a top level franchise QB who performs. We also get a gamebreaking WR, and they're the same age. Then we trade them away.

      I think what ruined Boller was giving him nothing at WR(People thought this years WR corp was bad, it was 10 times better then anything Boller had). A average pass blocking Oline, and then expecting him to win us the super bowl as a rookie.

        Well Boller did have horrendous accuracy and horrible foot work. His pocket presence was about as good as Patrick Ramsey.

          Adalius Thomas and Chad Jackson are at the top

          Laurence Maroney is in the next tier, he is average but we could have had Mojo or DeAngelo Williams. I never wanted us to let Asante go either.

          Taking Marquise Hill (RIP) over Darnell Dockett was something you look back on and say ****, but Hill was talented and we were taking everyone LSU had in that time.

          Letting Givens go pissed me off too. I know he didn't do anything anywhere else but he was nasty here. I wanted to keep Dan Graham too.

          Then of course we've passed on countless players in the draft or just traded down when we could've selected them, Clay Matthews being a painful example. I'm sure there is other things I'm forgetting.

            he also did have a fumble issue, but anyway I would rather have Suggs and Boller then just Leftwich.

            Besides we got our QB in Joe Flacco.

                Drafting Jonathan Sullivan

                Hiring Mike Ditka as our head coach and watching as he traded away all of our picks in 1999 and a first and 3rd in 2000 to move up to draft Ricky Williams.

                Signing Olinde Mare and getting rid of John Carney.

                Trading away Willie Roaf instead of trading Joe Horn.

                Keeping Aaron Brooks as our QB for so long and trading away Jake Delhomme in the prime of his career.

                  Yeah, he won it with Dungy's players. If we would of given him one more chance he would of had it and not that we had Gruden. He is the reason we are rebuilding because of his horrific draft picks. He passed on Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, and DeSean Jackson. All of his first round picks are busts except Talib. He was the reason for us losing four straight at the end of the 08 season and resting are players to early in 07. Raheem Morris is just cleaning up what Gruden has done.

                    Drafting Kyle Boller and Travis Taylor :(

                      Every team makes many mistakes. One big and recent mistakes the Falcons made was Jamaal Anderson.

                          Passing on Ed Reed for Bryan Thomas
                          Passing on Warren Sapp for Kyle Brady

                          Trading a 1st round pick for Doug Jolly and a second round pick, and then taking a kicker with that second round pick.

                            Sticking with Marc Bulger waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too fricking long.

                            Drafting Alex Barron, I don't care who we got for him, if Jerry Jones traded us the Notebook on DVD for him, that woulda been a great move for us.

                            Prolly soon to be drafting Sam Bradford over Suh, hoping I am wrong and many others are too on that.

                            Hiring Linehan as successor to Martz, we shoulda got a defensive guy like Spags in the first place.

                            Letting our offensive line get so old (Pace, Timmerman, McCollum) with no one ready to step in except for my favorite player ever Alex Barron.
