I’ll echo some of the salient points made by others here, and add a couple of my own.
Mayhew will forever be linked with Millen here. Right or wrong, it’s guilty by association.
Mayhew, for being a db himself, was exceedingly poor at drafting them.
Mayhew was, legitimately, a victim of the rookie payscale under the old CBA. Put Suh and Stafford on today’s deals, and that could have been a very special team with more free agent money. And Suh? He would have easily been franchise tagged twice off a rookie deal.
I always knew Mayhew would target at least one, “Who?” pick from south central BFE Community College in the mid rounds instead of targeting a high floor contributor. Irritated the ever living bejesus out of me.
Mayhew was atrocious at offensive line. It’s one thing I actually appreciated about Quinn.
Mayhew wasn’t our worst GM, but I would never want him back either.
