Monday with Mike: Good players, bad teams
Rivals.com has started its 1-120 countdown, and while putting together the text for the countdown, it has been hard not to notice that some bad teams have some good players.
In that vein, here's a preseason All-Losers team. That's not meant as a slight to the players, not at all. Rather, the name comes about because these good players toil for teams that -- in my opinion, at least -- definitely are going to finish with losing records this season.
It was easy to find good players at each position except quarterback. That shouldn't be a surprise. For the most part, bad teams have bad quarterbacks.
Here's a look at the All-Losers team.
