Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 2017
There were high hopes for Jameis Winston when the Buccaneers drafted him but ultimately he fell short of expectations. He failed to lead the Tampa offense like a true franchise quarterback in 2017. This wasn’t entirely his fault but his inconsistencies didn’t help matters (via Tampa Bay Times).
The likes of Mike Evans didn’t light up the league like he would in later years. They finished with a miserable 5-12 record as they struggled to score points and unlock opposition defenses. Many people thought that they’d win the NFC South this year but then reality raised its head.
