At the beginning of any professional sports season, there are high expectations for all teams. Each year, some of these teams live up to the expectations and others fall flat on their faces.
Here is a list of the top five teams that will disappoint their fans during the 2010 NFL season.
Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates might not care that LaDainian Tomlinson left this offseason, but the absence of Vincent Jackson will derail this offense.
Not to mention, the Chargers will be leaning on a rookie running back Ryan Matthews to carry the load on the ground. Good Luck!
The Ravens have been built around defense for the last decade, but they are banged up this season. Without Ed Reed and Dominque Foxworth, the secondary with be vulnerable to the deep ball.
There was much promise earlier in the offseason with the acquisition of Anquan Boldin, but without a healthy defense, this team is bound for a mediocre season.
It's going to be a very disappointing football season for all New Yorkers. The Giants' defense hasn't improved enough, even with the additions of Antrel Rolle and Keith Bullock, to believe that this season will be any different than last. Also, the Giants can't be sure what Kenny Phillips will give them coming off knee surgery.
On the offensive side, Brandon Jacobs and the young receiving core will all be question marks, for the Eli Manning led offense.
Everyone and their mother thinks that with the addition of Ochouno (Terrell Owens) that the Bengals will finally reach the elite level. Well, it's not going to happen. Carson Palmer has never been the same quarterback since he tore his ACL a few years ago, and you need someone who will stand in the pocket long enough to deliver the ball to these guys.
Besides, Ochocinco and Owens will surely be at each other's throats by Week 7—bet on it.
The Jets cut an anchor on the offensive line in Alan Faneca, and traded one of their big play offensive threats, Leon Washington, this off season.
"Hard Knocks," hold outs, and over inflated egos courtesy of Coach Rex Ryan will doom this team in the end. Not to mention, Mark Sanchez is not an NFL quarterback.
