The 100 Worst Players in NFL History

Recommended Posts

Like this guy! He talked so much crap every week but couldn't get out of his own way. 

 

 

46. Freddie Mitchell

WR; Philadelphia Eagles 2001-04

A player that had little talent and a big mouth, he should consider himself fortunate enough to have made that catch on 4th-and-26 as well as having been able to play in a Super Bowl.

 

And I can't forget Izel Jenkins, AKA Toast. Possibly the worst DB ever.

91. Tony Mandarich

OL; Green Bay Packers 1989-91, Indianapolis Colts 1996-98

The Packers passed up Barry Sanders and Deion Sanders to take the uber-hyped offensive lineman from Michigan State.

Mandarich battled injures as well as drug and alcohol problems through three seasons in Green Bay.

 

only 91????

Don't even recognize a lot of these names, some from older days when I didn't follow the NFL that close, others just obscure players.

 

100. Joey Harrington   - off to a fabulous start

 

93 Curtis Enis - one of many highly touted college players who didn't pan out

 

88 Browning Nagle - uggh

 

85 Tim Couch - there's my returning Brownies first overall pick, and a decent QB who had nothing to work with in CLE

 

77 Quincy Carter - awesome pick Jerry 

 

56 Matt Leinart - another overrated college QB

 

53 Art Schlichter - a bust on multiple levels

 

50 Rae Carruth - out of prison since 2018

 

47 William Green - AKA Weedhead Willie another great pick by the new Browns

 

37 Brian Bosworth - ahh yes the Boz

 

29 Mike Phipps - before my time as a Browns fan but I've heard he was legendary, in a bad way

 

18 Spergon Wynn - tons of guys were drafted ahead of Tom Brady, including this guy 

 

7 Maurice Clarrett - never played a down in the NFL, not even in a pre-season game, what a waste of talent

 

1 JaMarcus Russell - nice pick

 

But where is Johnny Manziel, Mr Football who flamed out?

That's a good one. He should probably be a top 10

Yeah,  that's the only one that really stood out to me as being way off the mark.

 

I kept scrolling through thinking,  where is JaMarcus Russell.:lol:

Elvis Patterson. :unsure: I think he was a db on the Chargers. He was called toast. Even on telecasts. lol

Is he still stealing a paycheck?

 

56. Matt Leinart

QB; Arizona Cardinals 2006-09, Houston Texans 2011-present

The Cardinals got the former USC standout to be the immediate starting quarterback.

Those thoughts soon changed when they witnessed his inability at the pro level.

I wonder what if any current players could make this list. From the Eagles it would be JJ Arcega-Whiteside. He was drafted before Scary Terry and DK Metcalf. He's done nothing since drafted.

He probably wouldn't make the list,  but Hakeem Butler is one of mine.

I should rephrase that. The 100 worst players in the league today would be fun. Based on where he was drafted JJ Arcega-Whiteside would definitely be on that list.

I was referring to Butler,  not Whiteside.

Since he was on PHI and you don't remember...

But he was a fourth round pick, so not really qualified to be a worst

 

Ohhh shoot. Haha, that guy! I barely recall even hearing his name. Unfortunately there's a lot of Eagles who would make that list. Especially Howie Roseman picks.

Is he that bad? You've obviously seen more of him.

That's why I said "he probably wouldn't make the list" and "one of mine."

Meaning I bought into the hype,  spent too high a pick on him and held onto him for way too long.

Mitch Trubisky? The Bears traded up and picked him at #2 overall, passing up Mahomes and Watson. He'd probably be #1 on a list of active players, no?

Hasn't played a snap or collected an NFL paycheck since 2012.  I believe he does some CFB games.

This article is from October of 2011, that is why some of the more recent disasters are not on here. As well as labeling Leinhart as playing in the present.

Yeah, I gotta find a newer list. I have so many names that should be on there.

Weird, I thought I replied to this earlier but I don't see the post now.

 

Anyway, I was lamenting on why I posted Hakim Butler. I took him at 1.14 in my rookie draft just before Terry McLaurin, AJ Brown, Hollywood Brown & Deebo Samuel. :weird:

My only defense being that I was really after Devin White, who went two picks ahead of me and I panicked going after my "sleeper" knowing that I didn't have another pick until the 3rd round. The pick should have been AJ Brown & stupidly enough, I was worried that I was overvaluing him because he was an Ole Miss guy.

Ah yes, #81 Troy Williamson. Guy could not catch a football. The strangest thing. Drafted as a 1st round WR and just couldn't make a catch to save his life. Must have been some oddball psychological thing.
