Going into the 2010 NFL season, most fans would have called you nuts if you’d told them that the Dallas Cowboys, the Minnesota Vikings and the San Francisco 49ers would be in or near last place in their respective divisions. However, that’s exactly where these three teams are right now. As a result, they are the biggest busts this year in the NFL. Let’s take a look at why they’ve been so bad so often this year.
–Dallas’s offense and defense have been atrocious.
Let’s face it, the Cowboys’ offense sucked before Tony Romo got hurt on Monday Night Football vs. the Giants. They had no sense of direction on offense and Jason Garret’s play calling has been suspect at best at times. When you add an anemic defense that has had only 5 interceptions as a team, you have the recipe for disaster.
Finally, now that Jon Kitna is at the helm, expect the Cowboys to be in the cellar of the NFL East all season long. They won’t have the tools on offense this season to pose a threat to no one but the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.
—Minnesota’s biggest problem has been Bret Farve.
Brett Farve’s swashbuckling style of play was wonderful when he won games. But now that his team has started the year at 2-4, you have to wonder if his off-field antics and his blockhead decisions make him suitable to be the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. Maybe it’s about time for Bret Farve to hang’ em up?
— Finally, San Francisco’s poor execution and stupid decisions have cost them dearly this year.
Ever since the 49ers forgot to show up on opening day against Seattle, the 49ers’ decisions on offense and defense have made them look like Benny Hill is running the show at times. If this doesn’t stop, the 49ers might just be the biggest flop this year!
