    historically, we dont draft very well. It still kills me to know that we drafted Udeze ahead of Steven Jackson of the rams.

    So if history has anything to do with it, greenway will suck anyway so who cares
    Or how bout our entire 2006 draft class ahead of Marques Colston? What WERE we thinking? :

    Seriously though, there's no way of telling.
    Who knew Kenechi was gonna suck?
    He was pretty good in college, looked the part, and seemed to have a good attitude.
    He was doing OK until he got injured, but now he's the sackless wonder.
    At the time, it didn't seem like that bad of a pick.
    It's such a tired cliche, but hindsight is indeed 20/20.

    You are close, it was a guy, but his name was Isreal Bissel and too difficult for Longfellow to pen a good story about.
    Pop Culture?

    Bissel did most of the work, and Revere was the only one glorified.

    Revere's role was not particularly noted during his life. In 1861, over forty years after his death, the ride became the subject of "Paul Revere's Ride", a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poem has become one of the best known in American history and was memorized by generations of schoolchildren. Its famous opening lines are:



    Listen, my children, and you shall hear


    Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,


    On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five;


    Hardly a man is now alive


    Who remembers that famous day and year


    On the midnight ride of Paul Revere

    Longfellow took many liberties with the events of the evening, most especially giving credit to Revere for the collective achievements of the three riders, as well as claiming that the lanterns in the Old North Church were a signal for Revere and not from him, as was actually the case. As a result, historians in the 20th century sometimes considered Revere's role in American history to have been exaggerated, becoming a national myth. Other historians have since stressed his importance, however, including David Hackett Fischer in his book Paul Revere's Ride (1995), an important scholarly study of Revere's role in the opening of the Revolution.

    Israel Bissell (1752-1823) was a post-rider in Massachusetts born in East Windsor, Connecticut who alerted the colonists of the British attack on April 19, 1775. He rode for four days and six hours covering the 345 miles from Watertown, Massachusetts to Philadelphia along the Old Post Road. He was carrying a message from General Joseph Palmer. The message was copied at each of his stops, and he shouted "To arms, to arms, the war has begun."

    What do you mean Revere was the only patriot who was, er, revered
    :
    for his ride warning of the British invasion?
    ???

    Bissell was remembered by his hometown... in a tribute originating 50 years ago...

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !
