In Ozzie we Trust, in #WNSTSweet16 we recognize no one is perfect

The list belongs to me this week. Not all of our lists are going to be pleasant. Some are going to be like this one. Here’s the list preview if you missed it.

Our list this week is the #WNSTSweet16 worst Draft picks in Baltimore Ravens history. Here’s what I’ve got. It’s brought to you by Jerry’s Automotive (Jerry’s Chevrolet and Jerry’s Toyota Scion).

16. Michael Oher

I had a bunch of folks suggest I include him. I really didn’t want to but ultimately decided I could justify it. The 23rd pick overall in 2009 has had a much more legitimate career already than most of the others on this list and was a starter for a Super Bowl championship team. But the Ravens traded up in ’09 to find their left tackle of the future and Oher was just never that guy. The former Ole Miss standout will have further opportunity to justify being worthy of his spot as his career continues in Tennessee, but with the door closed in Baltimore his career just did not make him worthy of the pick.

    In all fairness to Ozzie there have been four phases of his tenure as GM here. The pre Billick era, the post Superbowl Billick era, the post Billick era, and the now post Superbowl Harbaugh era.
    Cleary Ozzie works better when there is no one in the room with another ego. As soon as Billick got power boom Kyle Bollar. As soon as Billick is fired boom Joe Flacco.
    Right now Harbs needs to do one thing based on past history. Let Ozzie do the drafting and just chill out. Now post Ozzies best 16 picks Glen.

    It’s funny…
    I was thinking about doing a list of idiotic radio personalities who have no business being “on-air”….

    hired on the cheap by Nestor and likely never on any other radio show in any other market in any other city. has a self-important attitude and knows very little about sports except when he’s want to criticize. Can’t hold Drew’s jock and knows nothing about making himself a somebody (unlike Nestor)but does do a wonderful impression of a lap-dog.

    (Edit from Glenn: It’s always good to hear from listeners!)
