Everyone has a bad day, right?
Whether it's a case of the Mondays, waking up on the wrong side of the bed or someone doing something foul to one's corn flakes, some days just make us want to crawl back into bed and get a head start on the next day.
How about a bad year?
For NFL players, a bad year can be the end of a career. Two bad years in a row could mean millions of dollars down the drain and the end of a lifetime full of dreams. For NFL players coming off of a bad 2012, it's important to keep the proverbial nose to the rhetorical grindstone and make sure that 2013 is a step in the right direction.
This list is full of players who had years that either could've been better or were downright dreadful. Not every player was terrible in 2012, but each could stand to improve dramatically in the coming season. To that point, special teamers have been left off the list because their performances from year to year can be impossible to predict.
Some players will flourish in new systems and locations. Others have help arriving that should make their lives easier. Still others are just too talented to stay down for long.
