Traded to New Orleans

1999 first round pick (5th overall, Ricky Williams)[13]
Traded to Washington[13]

1999 first round pick (12th overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select Cade McNown)[14]
1999 third round pick (71st overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select D'Wayne Bates)[14]
1999 fourth round pick (107th overall, used to select Nate Stimson)[15]
1999 fifth round pick (144th overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select Khari Samuel)[16]
1999 sixth round pick (179th overall, later traded to Denver, used to select Desmond Clark)[15]
1999 seventh round pick (218th overall, later traded to Denver, used to select Billy Miller)[15]
2000 first round pick (2nd overall, used to select LaVar Arrington)[13]
2000 third round pick (64th overall, used to select Lloyd Harrison)[13]


New Orleans had the 12th overall pick and traded up to #5. If Buffalo wants to trade from 12 to 2, they need to offer us at least what the Skins got, plus there 2 2nd rounders this year.
Ditka is an idiot

I think the Giants can ask for a lot but I donít think you can throw out Ditkaís trade as the reference point.

I am afraid Gettleman will give the Bills a little bit of a break because itís his old assistant. Should get three 1ís at least.
Without selecting a QB, the Giants could determine the fate and

landing spot for 3 of the top 4 QB picks in the draft.
How could Ditka

HC, player, NFL experience.......

You have to have the right sucker, err team, to make a trade like that.......

Ditka the GM screwed Ditka the Coach...and Ditka the coach was not very good when coaching New Orleans. He also signed Heath shuler
They got nothing out of that trade

barely a decent player in there.


Are people aware that these trade downs for a kings ransom havent really panned out in almost 30 years?
Iíd take Ricky Williams over all of the others combined

A good back... career went south do to mental issues and drug problem. He played 12 seasons and ran for 10k yards. Not worth the price but a damb good back

Lavar Arrington was barely a decent player?
Buffalo should have to trade the rest of their draft picks to NYG

until they win a playoff game.

Since we're throwing out ridiculous trade demands.
Ditka the coach  
Dr. D : 4/13/2018 12:51 pm : link
probably wasn't even a great coach, without Buddy Ryan's 46 defense (as much as I disliked Buddy and he failed as a HC, he was DC of that all time great '85 Bears D) and an all time great RB in Walter Payton (who he didn't draft).
tits murble murble

couldnt turn those picks into anything resembling a winning franchise. Imagine Belichick getting his hands on that many picks
