Apparently they don't apply. It's funny though I read an article on this subject and Russell was saying exactly that.
The big difference: Teams passed up on Rice so his expectations weren't as high as DHB will have during the next 3 years.
OK point taken however Vernon did get excuses from majority of WZ'ers but many of those same WZ'ers who gave a pass to VD (some still do) will be amongst the first lining up to laugh at the Raiders and call DHB a bust prematurely.
It's just funny how that works ya know
