This week ranks among the most disappointing weeks of my 34 years as a Jet fan. Below is my list of the Top Five most disapointing players of the last 40 years. Not necessarily the worst players ... that might actually be Ron Faurot ... but the top five guys who disappointed me the most ... weighing their total production vs where they were drafted, level of talent and how high my expectations were when we drafted them. #5 Dewayne Robertson DT - 4th pick 2003 When I saw that we traded two #1's to move up to get him, I was expecting a monster. As soon as I saw what the guy looked like I was scratching my head. Maybe the least physically imposing 300 lb guy I've ever seen. And not an ounce of mean in the guy. Never more than mediocre ... always the second or third guy to get there. My lasting memory of him is watching him extend a hand to help up the guy who actually MADE a play. Too bad for us he decided to come out early. Terrible return on a big investment #4 Blair Thomas RB - 2nd pick 1990 Highly regarded, coming out of a good RB school - Penn State. Was hoping he'd grab the baton from my favorite Jet of all time - the great Freeman McNeil. Showed flashes for two years ... gaining around 1,400 yards and 50 receptions. People say he never recovered from the game-losing fumble against the bears, but I'm not sure that's 100% accurate. That was only game 4 and he was actually having a decent season after that, but he continued to have problems holding onto the ball. After the 1991 season he fell completely off the cliff into the abyss. Expected SO much more out of him. #3 Vernon Gholston DE - 6th pick 2008 The Tin Man. No heart. A workout HOF'er who never had the desire to make it anywhere he landed. Was supposed to be the solution to a pass rush deficiency we still suffer from today. Was hoping he'd be our antidote to Brady. Produced ZERO for us. #2 Johnny Lam Jones WR - 2nd pick 1980 World Class speed ... translated into 138 catches and 13 TDs in five seasons. I pictured him terrorizing the league as part of a lethal WR tandem paired with Wes Walker. Fast as lightning, but somehow could rarely get open ... and when he did, he'd drop the ball with alarming regularity. Caught a 55 yd TD his rookie season. Never equaled it again. Needless to say ... nobody was scared. #1 Mark Sanchez QB - 5th pick 2009 Not much comment needed here. 4 years of QB play at the bottom of the league. I was so psyched when we picked this guy, thinking we could have our Brady or Manning for years to come. Despite getting to those two AFCCG's he's #1 on my list, simply because of how a badly a wasted QB pick cripples a franchise for years. We're living it now. Honorable Mentions ... Browning Nagle QB - 34th pick 1991 Threw for 366 yards in his first start ... and I think 365 yards in the rest of them combined. I wanted to put him in the top 5, but I just couldn't bring myself to bump Robertson. Johnny Mitchell TE - 15th pick 1992 The body of an Adonis, but tragically stricken with Kerry Rhodes disease. Russell Carter CB - 10th pick 1984 Four INTs his rookie year. Never touched the football again.
