Ok...I caught a lot of flak for the offensive version of this list, (Top Oakland Raiders Who Didn't Carry Their Weight on Offense in 2009) because I didn't hold enough players accountable. Allow me to make some things perfectly clear.

There are a lot of reasons for the dismal performances turned in by our defense last season...not all of which were even on the field.

There were injuries, an anemic offense, poor coaching decisions, poor player adjustments and yes, there were plenty of mental breakdowns and poor fundamentals.

This list is my opinion of the five defensive players that were the furthest from fulfilling their potential and expectations...not necessarily the players that were most responsible for the failure of the defense or the ones that played the worst.
