The Top 10

Never having been a fan of "worst" lists, I thought I'd take a fresh look at an old premise.

The Internet is littered with articles slamming various players, particularly quarterbacks, oftentimes without digging deeper into why that player had a bad season.

To be fair, sometimes their subpar seasons are also the byproduct of external forces: coaching changes, injuries, new offensive schemes, battered or inadequate offensive lines, the lack of a consistent running game, dropped passes, voodoo curses, etc.

This slideshow will attempt to scratch beneath the surface of these players' lack of production and try to offer contributing factors (if any) that might have led to each player's poor performance in '09.

So instead of being a litany of negativity as to why "this player sucked," this article will try to paint a broader picture behind each of these quarterback's statistical failures and then determine whether the criticism they received was warranted or not.

Also, in the interest of fairness, freshman quarterbacks were not included.

You might disagree with some of the conclusions, but then that's the beauty of websites like this. Everyone has an opinion and can defend their favorite players if they so choose.
