Which is too bad. I didn't like him in college because of my hate for Nebraska, but he had a lot of talent, and making the transfer over to wide reciever in St. Louis of all places, which their team, I thought he would have a nice long NFL career, much like Antawn Randle-El appears to be in line for in Pittsburgh.
This is just weird. There has to be more to the story than this.

Word is Crouch had to be talked out of quiting a couple of time at Nebraska when they were looking to make him a reciever (only wanted to be on the team if he was the starting QB) aparently that has carried over to the NFL. the stubborn approach worked for Rich Gannon (the patriots drafted him as a DB). So Crouch could pop back up after a year or two in the CFL. As for Applewhite isn't he about 5'2", without a great arm or the speed that a smallish QB needs to make it. The reason Crouch was vialble as a WR or DB was he does have the size to go along with being lightning quick. By the way I would prefer that the Raiders had drafted him (Crouch) as a QB than that waste of tallent Currey.
Applewhite wanted to coach. He got drafted by New England and he sure wasn't going to displace Brady. His dream came true - Big Time Finale in a Bowl Game and drafted by the Super Bowl Champs. Now he goes back to Austin as even more of a Golden Boy than he was before - if that is possible.
I believe Applewhite went undrafted, he may have been invited to camp by new England but he wasn't drafted by them. Regardless he is now doing what he wanted to and that is coaching. Good luck to him, he was fun to watch play.

You are correct - I thought he was a 7th round pick but a quick check of ESPN confirmed he wasn't - I think he signed a one day Free Agent contract
I too was hoping to pick up Crouch as a QB, but for the Ravens. Beats the Redman/Blake combo we've got. And besides, we didn't exactly do much by drafting Wes Pate in the 7th round, nor did we do a lot for ourselves by signing Anthony Wright to the practice squad.
Anthony Wright...oh man - he's an even worse example of "Well, the guy can run, so he must be a worthy NFL QB" than Quincy Carter is. I remember seeing f'in Vandy shellac the Wright-led USC teams. VANDY. I mean, isn't that all the signal a scout needs right there?

Well, Blake wasn't that bad. He got jobbed in Nawlins, though, I think we can agree on that. Had the starting role, was doing fairly well, got injured, Brooks steps in and rips it up, and even though you're not supposed to lose your job to injury, he did. Besides, when he was in Cincy, he wasn't half bad for, you know, the Bengals.
I would just like to say that I to, LastCallHall, have officially retired from the game. I do not know how regular viewers of the NFL will continue to watch the game without my presence, but I feel that somehow, someway, they will presevere. Thank you, thank you.
Hall: "Hey maybe we could have a few beers with the boys..." Nash: "I don't think thats such a good idea..."
Gave back the signing bonus.... and doesn't hurt the salary cap. Thats a good thing. If the guy isn't happy and pulling himself from the game will help himself and the team.... then do so till your heads on right. Maybe when he is healthy... he can try his skills in the cfl and impress someone. From what i read he had a lot of problems with learning WR.
Originally posted by rockdotcom_2.0I agree, if the coach and the management has faith in you, why retire? Theres something we dont see. Maybe the players have froze him out or something. Quite possible.
ESPN is reporting that he just doesn't enjoy the game of football anymore. Hey, that's what Leaf said, didn't he? Hopefully he finds something he wants to do instead.
Speaking of Nebraska QBs, did Tommy Frazier ever play in the NFL?
I thought Fraizer suffered from recurring blood clots in his legs that dogged him at Nebraska, eventually forcing him to retire from athletics.

As a Packer fan, this makes me smile. Defense wasn't really Chicago's problem last year. You've got a young QB with big upside potential, who could use a little developmental guidance a'la Holmgren-Favre.
