10 NFL Stars Whose Production Will Drop off in 2012

Cam Newton and Drew Brees are both going to regress in 2012.

There are a number of NFL players whose production is destined to drop off in 2012.

For various reasons, the league sees superstars each year come seemingly out of nowhere. There are guys who are finally coming into their own and are here to stay. Then there are guys who are just plopped into the perfect situation and depend on that situation to produce at a high level.

Of course, there are guys in the middle, as well. You've also got guys with extenuating, unpredictable circumstances.

This list is about guys who killed it in 2011, but aren't going to reach the same level of success in the upcoming season. There's something for everyone and players range from established superstars to 2011 breakout players.

One last disclaimer: Just because a player is on this list does not mean I have deemed them a bad player. There is more that goes into a season than talent. It's more complicated than that.

So enjoy the list and let me hear your reactions in the comments. Which players do you disagree with? Who would you have put on the list?
