March Madness has begun!
Never mind the NCAA tourney, we’re talking football in March.
Thanks to all of you who voted for the worst bust in Raider history. The majority went with Todd Marinovich, that was a given as he grabbed over 70% of the vote. In a distant second was a man still on the Raider roster, Michael Huff.
Now that you picked the two worst busts to ever wear Silver and Black, it’s time to pick the worst busts to ever play in the NFL. Does Marinovich have what it takes to go all the way? You decide!
Throw our Raider busts under the bus or feel free to push through a few Charger, Chief and Bronco picks.
Tourney main page: Worst Man Drafted Tournament
West Region: Ryan Leaf is the #1 seed, Marinovich is #2. We could be looking at a fierce battle for worst QB to ever play in the AFC West with a birth in the Final Four at stake. The best first round match up is the #8 seed Pacman Jones against #9 Fred-ex Mitchell
East Region: This is the QB bracket. Todd Blackledge, Tommy Maddox, Jim Druckenmiller, Alex Smith, David Carr, Akili Smith, Heath Shuler: That’s a who’s who of nobodies. The best match up might just be an upset with #2 Heath Shuler looking over his shoulder at former XFL MVP, the #15 seed Tommy Maddox. But 49er clipboard jockey Alex Smith, as a #13 seed, might just be the lock for a bracket busting victory over #4 seeded Todd Blackledge.
North Region: Here we find our own Micheal Huff as a #16 seed. Can he make history and pull off the upset by knocking off #1 seeded Tony Mandarich?
South Region: The South might be the toughest bracket. #7 Rae Carruth vs #10 Kyle Brady, #8 Cade McNown vs #9 Ken O’Brien, #6 Maurice Clarett vs #11 Mike Williams (the OT not the WR, that Mike Williams is in the East).
Get out and vote! Feel free to spread the word! If you want to drop a few comments to have your voice heard or to complain about the selection committee, feel free.
