    Yes. There was that play where he was running and then grabbed his hammy. Then there was the time he grabbed his knee. Oh, who could forget the great play where he fell down and grabbed his ankle. Tom Knight had many memorable plays.

    What's funny is that Pro Football Weekly actually said that he might be a better pro than Westbrook or Springs.

    His best play was leaving as a free agent.

    If I remember correctly that WAS the case Redrage. I remember the Daily News saying he was only behind Springs in talent.


    :biglaugh:


    Oh how I cherish the memories of Billy Davis abusing him like a cheap hooker.

    Tommy Knight was a classic example of a guy who tested extremely well -- fast 40, great shuttle, smooth, athletic, etc --

    but none of that showed up on the football field --

    I got to play in a charity golf tourney with one of the Cards defensive coaches who told me that Tommy had everything you would want in a corner EXCEPT ball awareness. Guy just couldnt find the football in the air. As a result, he would have a guy covered only to watch a ball fall right past his facemask into the hands of the receiver.

    Also for what its worth -- as painful a bust as he was, Tommy was a heck of a nice guy. Well spoken, articulate, polite. Very smart.

    I don't know how they put Roy Williams at #8 best. Don't you know that you can't waste a top ten pick on a safety?

    He must have missed the last few minutes of MNF versus Redskins last season. OTOH, he may have caught the last few of MNF versus Philly where he took an ill-advised McNabb pass to the house.

    Well, if the Cardinals take Huff at #10 I wouldn't consider it a wasted pick...

    How long has this writer been following the NFL; about five years??? Or perhaps he doesn't understand the meaning of "perpetually"! :doi:

    i was always amazed at his coverage skills and absolute inability to make a play on the ball. knight was ALWAYS right on his man and could never swat the ball away. it was amazing.

    Yep that was his early career in a nutshell, good coverage, but the ball was always completed. I remember a Washington game probably his rookie year he had 3 could have been INT's, only got a hand on one of them and missed that. Just could not react to the ball in the air.

    Tommy Knight - he panned out as fools gold

    I thought at 3 they could have put Wadsworth as the biggest bust. He was graded better than Payton Manning and he was absoultly worthless from day one. Held out of ALL TRAINING CAMPS, ALL OFFSEASON WORKOUTS, signed one day before the first game and was schooled in the art of the NFL. Had less tackles than Tommy Knight. Forget the injuries...he was a waste.

    ..but a nice guy...for whatever that's worth.
