        Ummm... Not paying Terrell Owens, TO was amazing in Eagles green and the Eagles made a huge mistake kicking him off the team, if they just paid the man the whole fued fiasco would've never happened and the Eagles would likely have a lombardi trophy. Should've payed him.

        The Andrews brothers rank up there too, Shawn and Stacy are wastes.

            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.
            I'm pretty positive Jake Delhomme was a free agent when he went to Carolina. I remember that off-season the Cowboys tried to sign him but he chose the Panthers instead :/

            And John Carney will forever be remembered as the guy that missed the XP after the River City Relay. He deserved to be cut.

              - Drafting PacMan Jones 6th Overall.
              - Drafting LenDale White over Maurice Jones-Drew.
              - Drafting Chris Henry in the 2nd RD.
              - Drafting Andre Woolfolk over Nnamdi Asomugha.
              - Drafting Kevin Dyson over Randy Moss.
              - All the mid-round WR's that never developed into anything and waiting so long to provide VY with weapons.
              - The Norm Chow experiment.
              - Having the chance to sign Gregg Williams to replace Jim Schwartz, but having the deal fall through because Bud Adams wouldn't pay Williams's son, who was joining his father's staff as an assistant, a fairly generous salary for his position.
              - Allowing Eric @#$%ing King to leave in Free Agency!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
              Still Team The Ke$ha!!!

                Drafting Kevin Dyson instead of Randy Moss, we would of a couple of SB rings by now.
                Drafting Chris henry and passing on steve smith
                Drafting Pacman Jone (he would of been a good player if Paul Tagliabue was still commish)
                Signing garbage WRs like Justin Gage and Nate Washington to be out #1 wideout and people want Vince to throw for 300yds with those garbage WRs. This does not include Paul Williams and sorry middle round WRs. At least the colts give Peyton 1st round weapons.
                Signing the terrible Nick Harper

                  Passing on Rashean Mathis for Eugene Wilson
                  Passing on Darnell Dockett for Marquise Hill (R.I.P.).
                  Passing on Shaun Phillips for (God...) Guss Scott.
                  Passing on DeAngelo Williams for Laurence Maroney.
                  Passing on Greg Jennings for Chad Jackson.
                  Passing on Clay Matthews for an extra pick.
                  Passing on Sergio Kindle for a CB.

                  And yes, we're good drafters.

                    Kept Jay Fielder in as the starter for way too long

                    Gave up too much and relied too much on Ricky Williams in 02-03 to carry the offense and ignored everything else on offense. He carried the ball 775 times and caught like 90 passes. No wonder he retired on us.

                    Trading a 2nd round pick for AJ ******* Feeley

                    Hiring a college coach to be the HC and giving him full control(Saban)

                    Picking the bum Culpepper over Brees

                    Drafting Ted Ginn with the 9th overall pick. The 07 draft class was horrible. Had like 10 picks, but only a punter and backup NT is left from that class.

                    Waiting too long to bring in a dangerous weapon on offense(Marshall)

                    Props to fenikz on the awesome sig

                      The biggest by far is running off Jimmy Johnson. Here you have a coach with the best team in the game winning two straight Super Bowls with young Hall of Famers. What do you do? You run him into "retirement." Thanks a lot Jerry.

                      Passing on Randy Moss was another. I really liked Greg Ellis, but he is nowhere close to Randy Moss.

                      Passing on Tony Brackens was horrible too. Shante Carver sucked horribly.

                        The Zorn experiment

                        2011 FA: FS - OJ Atogwe

                          Shawn was a pro bowler at one point though, but I agree 100% about not paying TO being a huge mistake.

                          Iíll stick to my generation.

                          Drafting Jerome McDougle
                          Drafting Freddie Mitchell over Chad Ochocinco and Reggie Wayne
                          Giving Kearse that big contract
                          Failing to address the need of LB ever since the Andy Reid era basically
                          Letting Brian Dawkins go
                          Drafting Ryan Moats who was a poor mans clone of Westbrook over Brandon Jacobs who fit our exact need at RB
                          Letting Steve Spagnualo go (well that one was out of our reach)

                            Letting go of John Runyan

                            Salary cap hell- (When we had to let go of Rolle, Mason and McNair). Damn Ravens.

                              I wouldnt call Gage and Washington "garbage", they are just average.

                              And Nick Harper played well his first couple of years with us, he just got old.

                                For the Bears:

                                David Terrell
                                Sticking with David Terrell for so long hoping he would become something
                                A first round that consisted of Michael Haynes and Rex Grossman
                                Paying big money to Tommie Harris after one great season
                                Cedric Benson
                                Trading T-Jones to make more touches for for Benson
                                Dumping Benson
                                Not giving Mark Bradley a real chance
                                Giving Dan Manning opportunities at position other than nickel CB
                                Sticking with Grossman over Orton when our defense and run game only needed a game manager, not a ******* turnover machine
                                Spending a 3rd rounder on a special teamer RB (Wolfe)
                                Dan Bazuin


                                And that's just what looking through Bears draft picks sparks in my memory...there are a lot more (Archuleta, Booker->Muhammad->Booker, Keeping Aromashadu on the bench when Cutler asked for him to start the season.....)
