    What players have you wanted, now or in the past, that the majority told you were/would be busts, but turns out you were right?

    I'll go first.

    CJ2K before he went to Arizona.

    I went on quite a rant about OG Brian Waters when the Chiefs released him and was told by the usual suspects that he was washed up and that Montreal Holland was a better option. And then when they did sign Waters two years, a Pro Bowl, and a Super Bowl appearance later, it was of course met with thunderous applause.

    So you wanted him in Dallas, but everyone told you he would be a bust?

    Ya, I'm going with no.

    Chris Johnson was average in AZ, way past his prime. He had a couple good games but McFadden had more in the tank.

    I don't really have a comment as far as "busts" go because I typically don't want the team to invest in aging players.

    If I had to pick---maybe Demarco Murray? I wanted him back at the right price and he turned out to still be one of the better backs in the league with Tennessee.

    Many around here did think he was used up.

    Revis but there was no way he was going to get to our pick the year he came out.
