Top 5 Most Disappointing NFL Teams After 3 Weeks
NFL's Most Disappointing Teams After 3 Weeks
After three weeks of play, it's clear which NFL teams are and aren't contenders and while that could easily change three weeks from now, several teams that were supposed to have winning records by now simply do not. And it's not like these teams should all be 3-0, but 1-2 and even 0-3 starts are unacceptable for some of these squads and the kicker is the way some of these games have been lost.
Seriously, did anyone expect the San Francisco 49ers to get blown out twice in a row after a fantastic start to the season? Did anyone predict the AFC East and AFC West to each have a pair of undefeated teams at this point? Did anyone expect the Oakland Raiders to win a game this year?!
But on the disappointing note, many of the 1-2 and 0-3 teams this year are already raising eyebrows and while there are still lots of games left to be played, several fan bases are already reaching for the panic button.
Here are the top five most disappointing NFL teams through three weeks.
5. Washington Redskins
The Redskins shouldn't have been hyped as much as they were with a hobbled RG3 rushing back from an ACL tear, so that has only made things worse since Washington is now 0-3 and in turmoil. Look for Kirk Cousins to soon take over the reigns in our nation's capital.
4. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers were another team that was extremely overrated heading into the season, but 0-3 starts are unacceptable in Pittsburgh, so Mike Tomlin's seat will soon be getting hot whether he deserves it or not.
3. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons were picked by many to win the NFC this year, but Atlanta has looked like an unbalanced, overrated team through three games. Steven Jackson better get healthy soon before the Saints blow that division wide open.
2. Green Bay Packers
The Packers are always expected to be good as long as they have Aaron Rodgers and while he's played well, his teammates have not and Green Bay's 1-2 start is far from what the folks up north were expecting.
1. San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers were supposed to be utterly dominant this year, but they've been blown out two weeks in a row after an epic win over Green Bay to start the season. If that doesn't change soon, folks will be rethinking Jim Harbaugh's decision to ship Alex Smith out of town.
