Big Picture Categories: Quarterback Busts

King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

[Editor's note: We're running low on these, so if you have any good future Categories (preferably sports-related), leave a comment or send an email to zachls5@gmail.com]

The NFL Draft is right around the corner -- frankly it's like the only sporting event that gets us really excited this time of year, besides March Madness, of course. That's right, fuck the Super Bowl. Corporate bullshit overshadows the game. Anyway, when you think NFL Draft, one of the first things to come to mind is QBs who went bust.

Today's category then will be naming all those first-round quarterbacks that never panned out. What's considered a bust? Well, use your judgment. But if a guy was picked three years ago (2005 Draft) or more recently, he's not eligible. So Young Alex Smith won't count...yet. We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. First person to mess up has to convince his team's GM to take on Smith's $50 million contract.

We'll start with another 49er who sucked goat nuts: Jim Druckenmiller.

Let's go, Draft fans. Slang your QB-bust knowledge in the comments.

(Big ups to James of Horsetoothed.com for the idea).
