      11. Tiger Williams v. Bobby Nystrom

      12. Dale Rolfe vs Dave Schultz

      Let's be honest here: Schultz is an animal. This menace to the community should have been kept in that Hannibal Lechter get-up.



      Rolfe stepped up to defend the Rangers' top defenseman, Brad Park, who was taking a frightful pounding every time he went back for the puck. (A tactic, by the way, that the Flyers would repeat in 1998, when they broke Brian Leetch's arm against the boards when he went to retrieve a dump-in.) For Schultz, a good check wasn't good enough. Even after Rolfe was "turtling," Schultz stood over him, raining blows in his characteristic maniacal fashion. Much to the Rangers' ever-lasting infamy, they stayed right there on the bench, instead of stepping up to defend their teamate against that animal. Thus the Rangers have long been viewed as a soft team, a team that won't stick up for each other. Philadelphians, however, eat that up: in their twisted minds clubbing baby seals makes for good sport.

      To this day I loathe Schultz. He was nothing but a senseless bully. If I saw him walking down the street tomorrow I'd push him in front of a bus and sleep just fine at night for having done it.

        13. Maxime Talbot vs Daniel Carcillo in game 6 of the Pens Flyers Series in last seasons Stanley Cup. Talbot got his clock cleaned but the fight sparked the Pens to overcome a 3 goal deficit in that game and throughout the rest of Cup play!

            The first pick in this all-star line up of NFL First Round Draft Busts, or the biggest bust of all, goes to...............

            1. Tony Mandarich: OT: Green Bay. In college he played like Superman but in the NFL he couldn't play dead!

                One of the "Class of Quarterbacks," Blackledge didn't quite pan out like Marino, Elway, Kelly, or Esiason. He was drafted, and then he disappeared.

                      4. Ryan Leaf, QB 2nd overall pick by the Chargers from Washington State

                      All of the previous entries in this category exhibited the good taste to keep their ineffectual careers as short as possible. This one, however, stuck around like a bad cold, infecting all around with his particular brand of suckiness:

                      5. Ken O'Brien - New York Jets

                      Another of the "Class of Quarterbacks," this guy was far more dangerous than Todd Blackledge. Born in nearby Rockville Center, Jets' management got the bright idea that this mook would make a good NFL field general. They kept starting this slob years after he had proven that he was more interested in upping his completion rate than he was in winning games -- hence his habit of holding the pigskin too long and taking way too many sacks.



                      I can't think of another quarterback who spent more unnecessary time on his ass than O'Brien.

                      But he was worse than that: taken in the same draft as Jerry Rice was Al Toon out of Wisconsin. In a way, he would be the prototype of the top receivers today: reasonbly fast, good hands, runs sharp routes, and tall, strong, and physical -- almost a lightweight tight end, a lot like Randy Moss today. With a halfway decent QB, we'd be talking about Al Toon as an automatic in Canton. With O'Brien, though, he's lucky to be alive: O'Brien's favorite route was crossing over the middle, and O'Brien always -- and I mean every friggin' time -- threw it high.



                      Toon got wrecked more times than I can count, and he was one of the first NFL players whose experiences brought chronic concussion syndrome to the public's attention. The commentators would groan, "there goes another hospital ball again." In my mind, Ken O'Brien should be charged with armed assault for what he done to Al Toon.

                          I don't dislike him as a player, actor-wannabe for sure, but he and Mandarich could be poster children for the anti-steroids movement!

                            In 10th grade JV Football (already losing by like 20pts in the first half) we called a one step (me QB) hot-pass to the TE on the left side... the dude said 'no way' . Everybody in the huddle just looked at him... I asked 'are you kidding me'? He said 'nope, no shcidt'... and I looked at the right TE and said 'how about your way'? ... he said 'hell yeah' - I completed the passed/ he got about 8yds and got busted... I'll never forget
                            that .

                                So true ... he was my bud though , as he was a pitcher on our baseball team and I was the catcher. Big tough left-handed redheaded dude... so he could take a hit.
