“They are who we thought they were….and we let em’ off the hook!” Remember that line from former Arizona Cardinals head coach, Dennis Green's, post-game tirade?
While funny at the time, I am sure he meant it with a lot more seriousness than YouTube or ESPN gave it credit for.
Dennis is now in the UFL, thanks in part to that tirade, but it got me to thinking, are there players in the NFL today who aren’t who we thought they were? A player that keeps inspiring you to say things like "he's on the brink", "this will be his year", "he's finally going to get back to form", or, my personal favorite, "this will be his breakout year"?
Do you know a player or two who does that for you just about every season, yet at the end of the year you find yourself disappointed all over again? Well, this list is about a few of the guys on my list.
I already know that one of these names might strike a nerve in a few who will read it, but I am always happy to take my medicine where that is concerned. So, without much else to say...
