Re: 2004 Draft thread
Sorry I didn't chime in yesterday....But it just sickens me that they didn't draft Nelson.
While I do believe that Homer Bailey is the next in line at dr K's office, it's not that they drafted him that upsets me the most. Chris Nelson's gonna make all of us shake our heads in disbelief a few years from now. He's a guy that Colorado will build it's franchise around.
Will Homer Bailey be able to match that? My gut feeling tells me no.
Of course we shouldn't be surprised by any of this....Not when you look at the braintrust involved. This front office has displayed an apalling amount of hubris by thumbing thier collective noses at years and years of evidence that drafts like this are poison to the long term health of a small market franchise.
I hope I'm wrong.
