There are alot of dysfunctional franchises in the NFL. Which franchise is the most dysfunctional? And which franchise is in the most trouble going foward?

I said the Jets. That team/organization is a mess.

Raiders. It simply does not get any worse from top to bottom, and there is no visible end in sight. They have NOTHING going for them now, or in the foreseeable future.

the Bills haven't made the playoffs since 1999.

thats insane, in a league where 7-9, 8-8 teams can make the playoffs.


The Bills and Raiders are stuck in a perpetual state of mediocrity/sucking
Horrible stadiums, little support, bad ownership, bad coaching, bad players

everything about them sucks

The thought of playing for Jacksonville is pretty cringe-worthy. Awful team in an awful market.

I voted for the Cardinals because they don't have a QB, a terrible offensive line, no running game, no tight end production, and now will likely have to find a new head coach and staff. And they could lose Ray Horton to a head coaching job.

If the Eagles have a coaching change, we'll have at least a couple of years near the bottom. Depending on who that new coach is and what he does, maybe longer.

Danger Of Moving:

Jacksonville/St Louis

Why? These are not football towns worth keeping an NFL team in.

Danger Of Sucking For A Couple Of Years:

New York Jets

Why? This team has NOTHING on offense. Nada, zip. Jeremy Kerly as the # 1 Receiver. Shonn Greene as the # 1 RB. Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, and Greg McElroy. LOL. If they don't get some weapons and a starting NFL QB next year....Jets fans get ready for Rebuild.

I spend alot of time in Jacksonville and I somewhat disagree. It's kind of a stereotype. They have alot of passionate fans but they just dont physically show up to games. Wear a Titans jersey in certain parts of J-Ville and you'll find out how big of a football town it really is.

Never said they weren't a "football town"...i said they are not "worth keeping an NFL franchise in"

The problem with Jacksonville is that they have such an obscure roster and organization

Can you name 3 players on that team?
Is there any "brand" or anything that comes to mind when you think of the Jax Jags

They need a true star to revitalize the Jaguars in that city. They need an RG3 or a Luck or someone to excite you

Oakland, Cleveland and Jacksonville are all terrible in all 3 phases and have been for quite some time. I'd give the edge to the Jags though bcuz even if they were good they wouldn't sell out and that's a big indicator of a bad franchise.

:roll: I'm sorry I'm having a really tough time wrapping my head around this one...matter of fact I wouldn't mind being a guinea pig in an experiment that requires me to walk around Jacksonville in a Titans jersey. I wanna see what those scary Jags fans are gonna do.

I'd be down for that if Lurie is too cheap and/or too narcissistic to give us a real HC and a real QB.

I walked 1 mile back to my hotel after a MNF game(Giants-Jags) in 2005. I stuck around after the game because I had a press pass, and was in the locker room and at the PC for a while, so my friends took off without me because they got tired of waiting. It was 1am, I was alone, and in full Giants gear. Not a single person said a word to me, and there were still quite a few people meandering around the area.

Passionate? They had at least 6 sections tarped off in the stadium, for a MNF game.

There must be other "certain parts" of J-Ville that are considered scary too. I wasn't so much as looked at walking alone, let alone confronted :roll:

Yeah the problem with the Jags is that they are a very boring team in a small market. They need some excitement. Usually their coaches are very conservative and run-first. But i guess thats what happens when you draft punters in the 3rd round.

The Jest, they are $20 million over the cap next season the Talent on the team is average, and Sanchez is damn near untradeable with that ****ty contract...
Raiders changing coaches like clothes no stability...
The Jags can't sell out even with a majority of the seats covered, first round QB is brittle...

But the Packers are in an even smaller market - and it doesn't seem be stopping them from being a year-after-year contender.

Great poll....wonderfully bad, that is. I had trouble picking, and it's amazing how many franchises in America's most popular sport are doing poorly or have poor prospects.

I ended up picking the Bills. But I could easily have gone with any of these teams except for the Eagles.

I picked the Bills because:

They're already in a long playoff drought.
They have no real quarterback prospect.
They overpaid for Mario Williams
They have no head coach (well, they have Chan Gailey, same thing).
They have a guy named Buddy as general manager.
They have Buddy Nix as general manager.

So they need an entire restructuring, which includes a quarterback, before they can even hope to be any good.

Actually, among these teams, I think the Eagles may have the best prospects - they may have a good young QB in place. They have good offensive linemen coming back from injury next year; they have some WR talent and a plethora of RBs, and they've got guys like Brandon Graham that show some real promise. They also should have no problem attracting a good head coach as long as they don't botch the selection.

I have been to Jacksonville before. Jags fans are actually a myth, no more real than bigfoot. Their are just bored people who still like to wear Fred Taylor jerseys and watch NFL games at a cheap price. They even got a little wave going on between the one or two hundred of them.

I picked the Jets because of how much of a laughing stock they were this year. Almost every other team besides the Eagles/Chargers have had "the most trouble going forward" for at least a decade.

:lol: :roll:

I would say the Jags are because they are have poor attendance and are probably going to be moving to LA before long. They need a home run in this draft to save them. I think the Jets are a mess as well but not quite as bad to me. Although they have a lot going against them with being media ****s and a circus as well as playing second fiddle in NY/NJ.

i do like the poll though.

Wasnt there a story about a Bears fan who got stabbed to death down there earlier this year?

I walked 1 mile back to my hotel after a MNF game(Giants-Jags) in 2005. I stuck around after the game because I had a press pass, and was in the locker room and at the PC for a while, so my friends took off without me because they got tired of waiting.

The Giants arent a divisional rival.

Yeah, the Bills are a mess. I feel bad for their fans. They get hosed by that garbage week in and week out.

The Chiefs and Jets have had solid patches.
