Have been thinking bout this all day. Some teams that are consistant losers, promise improvement but delivery only misery, should be better than they are. well which team has been the worst over the last 5-10 yrs and why ?

My vote goes to the Texans, they consistantly promise winning seasons, had a number of high draft picks, have players that should be or are coming to their prime, have questionable draft day picks and after 4-5 yrs still dont appear settled on their game style

You have to figure in the fact that they had a totally inept coach and GM.

Now with Kubiak they're showing signs of life.

I'd say Arizona.

This is eeeeeeeeasily the Detroit Lions.

Have you seen their record untill Millen? It's an absolute train wreck.

How the hell are they not even an option? Are you kidding me?

I think that at a neutral site, the Raiders would be an underdog to any team in the league right now.

Detroit... Always has been. Barry Sanders is all that they have ever had and will ever have until they fire everyone who works there, take a year off and redeclare in the league.

I think it best for all that they just disbanded

I'm gonna say Oakland.

I also don't understand how you can put the Raiders in there when the question is in the last 5-10 years, all they did was take the oldest team in the league to the Super Bowl 4 years ago... Can you remember back in the olden days between the start of the New England "dynasty"

Raiders without a doubt. The other teams you mentioned at least have some young players at the skill postition to build from. Oakland has....Robert Gallery. But there defense is underrated though, I give them that.

The Detroit had an offense and Shaun Rogers. They're getting Shaun Rogers back from suspension, but the offense is still missing at the moment.

Meanwhile, the Raiders still have the most underrated defense in the league and a good punter. Despite the fact that the Raiders have the worst coaching staff & front office in all of football.

Edge: Detroit Lions as the worst team in football.

Yeah, right now. They have one of the best histories in sports history though, sprinkled with victory, turn around, upset and controversy and tragedy. Al Davis was the man before he turned what, 90?

How are the Bills even up there. Sure we had a bad, bad loss to the Lions, but no way we are bottom 5.

Detroit if we're talking about the past five years. They've been an absolute mess.

11-20-2006, 09:08 PM
I think it is Arizona, with Detroit a close second. The reason for this is Detroit has had one bright spot in their history, Barry Sanders.

Arizona hasnt even had someone like that. They have had pretty much nothing but misery. This year was supposed to be an up year for them and look how it turned out.

If its 5-10 years Raiders are not the worst team...

Won the AFC Championship

Played in Super Bowl 37 (yeah i know they lost)

Won the AFC West 3 straight years in a row

Rich Gannon was NFL MVP

Raiders haven been crap the past 4 years not that past decade, Cards and Lions are clearly the worst teams what have they ever done?

the raiders are the worst run team in the leauge but their talent level is not as horrible as their record. I think if this team had some halfway competent coaching you could give them those handful of games they blew this year that they should have won.

And you are wrong to say the raiders only had one good year in ten. Off the top of my head i seem to remember the rich gannon era as having gone pretty well. You know the tuck year, the year before when tony siragusa injured gannon in the playoffs, and they year they went to the superbowl. There you go. I dont think the cardinals or lions can compete with that.

The Raiders are in their lowest point of their franchise now. But the team is not a total mess. We got a oyung, improving defense, which needs a player or two to be really good. The special teams are pretty good too. As soon as Walsh is gone (and hopefully Shell) and we have actually determined players to win, we could be better.

If we had an offense that scored 20 points a game we could be like 6-4
or 5-5 now.

if its just for offense with out a doubt raiders would be the worst mayb worst in history ..........but having a defense that is pretty damn good does bump them out of the worst team list ....a lot of bad teams this year.

Only 1 team that needs to be in this poll and that is the lions.

Cleveland is better than more teams than listed. They drop Carthon and the offense all of a sudden is almost decent, they'll probably win 6 games again so they're far from the worst

11-21-2006, 09:44 PM
3 teams with the lowest winning percentage over the last 10 years

1.Lions
2.Cardinals
3.Redskins

Oaklands D is excellent.
If you look at their offensive rankings they are at 32 in pretty much every category.So to see where their defense is ranked the defense is just phenonimal.Just need a RDE and a DT and then the defense will be set.The coaching staff on Oaklands defense is great to.
The offense actually has talent on it.Its more of the coaching.
Dont need to discuss Tom Walsh and the B&B.
Slater and Eatmen the Oline coaches have never coached either so there you go.

How could you leave Detroit out of the pool. They are not only the worst team this year, they are the worst team for the last decade and then some.

11-22-2006, 07:13 AM
I love it how the Titans are so far under the radar they're even left off "worst team in league" polls :)

But I guess if we're talking in recent history then it wouldn't make sense since they were a pretty competitive team until 2004. So yeah i'd have to say the Lions for sure.

Detroit, possibly the worst team in history, they have had Barry Sanders and Alex Karras. Since 1930 they have won their division an ASTOUNDING 8 TIMES!!!!! They have won an NFL championship 5 of those 8 times, the latest being 1957. During the Super Bowl era, they have won the Central/North 3 times. 3 times in 40 some years. The are the Cubs of the NFL.

Texans are finally headed in the right direction with Kubiak. They will be competitive in year or two. Previous management and coaching staff had absolutely no clue as to what they were doing resulting in bad personnel decisions and wasted picks.

This not being an excuse or anything, we are who we are but the fact of matter is this year Texans are more affected by change of scheme from 34 to 43, lack of quality depth and injuries to their key players.

Transformation will be complete this off season from the previous regime from the personnel point of view. Allot of players will be let go who don't fit the 43 scheme or who are not in Texans plans of the future.

Some of the names will surprise you this off season.

For Texans, this season has been more about evaluating personnel.

Oakland in the last 10 years is here instead of Detroit? Are you **********ing kidding me?

Oakland:
2006 2-9 Pick TBD
2005 4-12 #7 pick
2004 5-11 #7 pick
2003 4-12 #2 pick
2002 11-5 AFC Champs
2001 10-6 AFC West Champs-Snow Bowl agianst Patriots
2000 12-4 AFC Title game
1999 8-8
1998 8-8
1997 4-12
1996 7-9

Would you like to compare to Detroit?
2006 2-9 Pick TBD
2005 5-11 #9 pick
2004 6-10 #10 pick
2003 5-11 #7 pick
2002 3-13 #2 pick
2001 2-14 #3 pick
2000 9-7
1999 8-8
1998 5-11
1997 9-7
1996 5-11

The Lions, over the last 10 full seasons have had 2 winning seasons and 1 at .500. They had 5 straight years with top 10 picks and they are looking season 6 straight in the eyes. The Raiders have had 3 fully terrible seasons with 4 or 5 wins, 3 very very good seasons over 10 wins (and going deep into the playoffs), 2 building seasons at .500 and then a very bad one under Joe Bugel and a bad one (at 7-9) to end White's tenure. That's 2 at .500, 3 well over .500, 4 well below .500 and one just under .500.

The Raiders have a darn good defense and all of them are young and learning. The offense is crappy right now, but they have the chance to grow. The stretch they had of good seasons for 3 years was right up there with the Rams, the Packers of a few years earlier and the Patriots that was just starting. The only difference is they didn't git er dun in the playoff games. (again, 2000 Ravens in the AFC Title game and the Snow Bowl in 2001 against the Patriots)

The Lions? Uh..... Yeah.... They drafted Charles Rogers...

The Raiders arent even the worst team this year, and cant even be put in the same discussion for the last five years.

I hate Tony "the Goose" Siragusa, The snowbowl tuck call, and not knowing that my team is gonna win every Sunday. Thats really how it felt a few years back, I remeber almost being bored at a game because it was 41-0 in the 2nd quarter and Tui was coming in for Gannon.
