Every year has that one team where everything just goes wrong and they never get it together. From the players, to the coaching staff, to management, or just simply having a difficult schedule. A combination of the any of the above factors always leads to one, sometimes two teams just being absolutely dreadful. Who do we think is going to fill the role in 2012? Take a look at the past:
2011: colts/rams 2-14
2010: panthers 2-14
2009: lions 2-14 rams 1-15
2008: lions 0-16
2007: dolphins 1-15
2006: raiders 2-14
2005: texans 2-14
2003: nyg/raiders/chargers/cards 4-12
2002: bengals 2-14
2001: panthers 1-15 / lions 2-14
scary to see that on paper. every year since 2001 has had a team go 2-14 or worse except in 2003.
Now the million dollar question, whos going to be the nfl 2012 cash fade?
I'm thinking....JACKSONVILLE JAGS
New head coach, new OC, (Mularkey and bob Bratkowski) Inexperienced and unskilled QB. No real recieving threats. A pissed off MJD who knows how much longer he can carry this team on his back? an actually mediocre defense is their only bright spot aside from MJD.
Problem is, their schedule is actually not too difficult so i can see a 4-12 season being feasible.
OTher teams off the top of my head that seem to be in the decline or ready to hit rock bottom:
Cardinals, Vikings (pending peterson status), Dolphins
