Aaron Maybin: Worst player in the NFL?
 
I remember a lot of experts thinking Maybin was going to be a stud.
I feel bad for Bills fans though.

But just think, he was way more highly touted as a 3-4 OLB than Clay Matthews was.

Interesting article.

I thought he was going to be a stud...I still can't believe he's been so incredibly bad. I knew he was COMPLETELY undeveloped physically and would need a year or two to get there but I thought he'd at least be serviceable in the interim. I thought he was miscast as a 4-3 DE and thought he'd thrive in the new 3-4 scheme they were switching to.

The biggest thing that boggles me is that I keep hearing that he has been lazy and hasn't been putting in the extra time. When he was here at Penn State, he was one of the hardest working players on the team. I guess all the rumors of him just wanting to get his money and run were more true than I thought...

Still too early to right this guy off. He was extremely raw coming otu and has already had to deal with one complete defensive scheme overhaul and is now going through another one

Nah, he's useless

He was always a boom or bust player. Sadly for Bills fans its the latter and now he's a healthy scratch with the Bills switching back to a 4-3.

redbills 10-28-2010 09:16 PM

My thoughts




he just sucks ass

Wait a sec..... what's the deal there with the Bills defensive alignment?
I thought this year they switched to a 3-4. I should know since we played them in week 2....

CashmoneyDrew 10-28-2010 09:18 PM

I never saw the hype. Especially in a 4-3.

we play both, but 4-3 more now with Stroud-Williams-Troup-Edwards the D-Line. Kelsay-Davis-Poz the LBers. and when teams had 3 WRs we went to a 4-2 look all season.

Is Maybin a starter? Because worst player overall is tougher, lots of scrubs that get only a few plays per season. The worst starter is Nate Kaeding and it's not close.

brat316 10-28-2010 09:43 PM

Its what happens with guys who in college just run by the tackle and never decide to learn technique. Maybin, Gholston.

TitanHope 10-28-2010 09:46 PM

Everyone's eyebrows were raised when they took him, especially with Orakpo staring them in the face.

That GM got the knife with Jauron too, right?

There's no such thing as too early to write someone off.

yourfavestoner 10-28-2010 09:48 PM

Vernon Gholston anybody?

McBain 10-28-2010 09:59 PM

I love Aaron Maybin... he's why Orakpo is a skin.

Gholston actually plays the run once in a while.

My exact thoughts.

MetSox17 10-28-2010 10:09 PM

It's a toss-up between Gholston and Maybin as who's the bigger 3-4 hybrid bust.

Gholston has more production (and that's saying somethin') than Maybin, but Gholston was touted as the next Mario Williams. One has been shittier, but came with less promise and hype than the other one.

Honestly, the Bills are shafted worse though, cause Rex Ryan made that defense one of the best (if not the best) in the league WITH a top ten bust on the team.

XxXdragonXxX 10-28-2010 10:36 PM

I would have to throw Seahawks RT Sean Locklear in as one of the worst starters in the NFL.

SeanTaylorRIP 10-28-2010 10:39 PM

2 picks before Orakpo, ouch. And I'm fairly certain every team in the league except the Bills had Orakpo rated higher than Maybin.

vidae 10-28-2010 10:54 PM

Hey, it could be worse. He could be Ryan Sims.

Brb, cutting myself. :(

A Perfect Score 10-28-2010 10:54 PM

I had Mathews rated higher as well, but he was my man crush that year. I also expected Maybin to take some time to develop, but he's had a full offseason of NFL coaching and S&C and they switched to a format that should have worked for him.

We didn't raise our eyebrows, we just hung our heads. There was heavy talk of us taking Maybin before the draft, we were all just praying it wouldn't happen.

That is absolutely devastating. Bills fans should sue someone over that pick.

I feel bad for Bills fans for having to put up with this. In most states, even bad teams are the best team in their state. In NY, you can be pretty good and still be 3rd best.

Usually at least one of the teams from Florida or California sucks really bad.
