Here’s a motto Ravens fans live by: when in doubt, blame it on Kyle Boller.
Back in the 2003 draft, the Ravens selected Boller with the 19th overall pick. The Ravens were so high on the QB out of California (probably because they saw how far he could throw the ball from his knees) that they traded their second round pick in 2003 and first round pick in 2004 to the New England Patriots to get him.
As Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com points out, the Pats used that first round pick in ’04 to draft Vince Wilfork, now a four-time Pro Bowler.
Wilfork registered 74 tackles and two interceptions this season. He leads the Patriots with 2.5 sacks and three quarterback hits during the postseason.
Boller finished his career in Baltimore with a 20-22 record and more interceptions than touchdowns.
Thanks a lot Kyle.
