We should change this to the Rolando McClain thread
AAL: Matthew Stafford
With Aaron Curry, Jason Babin, Stanford Routt and Rolando McClain all released over the past few weeks, I believe all of these guys were 1st round picks.
This is why I get really scared about picking in the top 10 when we do. Even last season, we were ready to make a huge trade to move up to get CB Gilmore but we couldn't do it........now we're glad we didn't because the guy really hasn't done anything in Buffalo.
In the draft thread, I have us trading down and picking twice in the 2nd round. It just seems like more of a solid investment these days.

Mayhew is offically a dumb ***. He started off strong, now it seems like he isn't even trying to make the team better anymore.
The last significant move he has made IMO was when he was able to lock up Tulloch to that long-term deal. You can't even really call the Calvin deal tough as we just threw all the money we could at him now we can't afford to even keep our roster together next season.
Mayhew's first couple seasons, he was making solid trades, getting rid of under-performing players, and drafting well. Now I'm not so sure anymore.
I know there are people out there that have confidence in Mayhew, but I don't know too many fans who have the same confidence in him as they did even two years ago.
