Default Re: Biggest Bust?

Busts:

Jacksonville- Losing to them twice last year left a bitter taste in my mouth. But they were a good team. These guys were supposed to overtake the Colts in the South and it looked like they were on their way when they beat Indy in their house. Pittsburgh's victory in Jacksonville was at the time, the most satisfying of the season.

Detroit- They went undefeated in the pre season and had the look of an up and coming team with a lot of young talent. I knew they were going to struggle a little, but 0-16 makes no sense whatsoever.

Cleveland- I don't know why I'm putting them here. I never fully believed the Browns were for real. They weren't all that great in 2007, and Romeo Crennel was still a crappy coach. But I guess losing for so long makes you excited for anything.


I have no surprises, really.
