Although we are months away from the beginning of the 2009 NFL season, we can start to see which teams will struggle. The following five teams would be lucky to break .500 next season.
With six weeks gone in the 2008 NFL season, let’s take a look at the worst teams in the NFL.
5. Oakland Raiders
The Raiders have their fair share of young talent but as of right now, they just aren’t very good yet. JaMarcus Russell and Darren McFadden will one make a good quarterback and running back combination but right now, both players are struggling a bit. Add in a coaching change and an owner in Al Davis who seems to always be meddling, and you have a few more reasons why the Raiders are currently the fifth worst team in the NFL.
In order to avoid a delay in training like they had last year when trying to sign JaMarcus Russell, the Raiders had one goal in mind for the contract negotiations with their top draft pick this year - get ‘er done! And McFadden had to be smiling as the Raiders agreed to shell out 60 million dollars for a six year stint - 26 million of which is guaranteed.
