Best Of / Worst of


Hi Everyone,

 

  Happy Fathers Day to all of you Fathers and future Fathers.

I figured since we have a lull in new activity, i would start a Best of / Worst of series for the next couple of weeks. This week we will do a Best/Worst Trade and Best/Worst draft pick of the 1970s. So moving forward today we will have (5) 1970s Worst trades for you to mull over. You can check all the players stats at http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/  for further info.

Trade #1 - 1st round pick in 1973 to Buffalo for WR Marlin Briscoe. This pick for Buffalo ended up being Joe DeLamielleure (26)(G). DeLamielleure played for 12 years and was inducted in the Hall of fame in 2003. Briscoe played for Miami for about 3 years and had ~860 yards receiving.

Trade #2 - 1974 QB Joe Theismann to Washington for 1st round pick in 1976. Not sure why pick was in 1976, but the Dolphins ended up picking Larry Gordon (17)LB in 1976.

Trade #3 - 1976 - S Jake Scott and 4th round pick in 1977 to Washington for S Bryant Salter. Jake Played for the Redskins for 3 years and had 14 INTs. Salter played in 12 games for the Dolphins w/ 1 INT

Trade #4- 1976 - RB Mercury Morris to San Diego for 4th round pick in 1977. We ended up trading this pick in the trade above.. Morris played for SD for 1 year and had ~250 yards

Trade #5 - 1978 TE Jim Mandich to Washington for 8th round picks in 1979 and 1980. With these picks we picked Jeff Groth (206) and David Woodley (214). Groth didnt make the team and I assume you most know what happened with Woodley. Not sure if this was too bad of a trade since Mandich played only one more year and didnt have any catches, but he was one of the 72 team. It was sad to see him get traded.
