I know you got one.
As part of my mourning and healing process of the 2014 NFL season, I've decided to create a poll. I have seen my share of real crappy seasons with my sports teams. Many were expected and ended just as awful as I thought they would. But this has to be the most disappointing season I have ever seen. The shoulda. coulda, and woulda's have permeated me down to my fandom's very soul. 

So... in an effort to be humored, do you guys have a memorable season where you had high hopes for one of your teams at the first of the year only to see them dashed upon the rocks and cast into the bottomless pit of sport's Hades?

Just asking?

this year. 2-8 texans. what happened to us, beans?? 4 out of ten of our games, we turned the ball over on our first offensive play of the game. our players are all making us lose games, yet they're all still doing their stupid yeehaw dances when they do something good. dances typically are followed by penalties that push us out of field goal range (which is anything over 26-yards under the foot of randy bullock). our head coach is strokey, our starting qb is now second string to a kid who doesn't even f**king swear. our fans are the biggest bunch of a**h***s and everyday on my drive to work i have to tail this one dumb bitch who has a massive texans sticker on the back of her car with a stupid pink bow around one of the horns like it's hello g**d***ed kitty. i hate that whore. makes me almost want to get to work on time so i don't have to see her stupid stupidness. i haven't had a drink in over 6 months, but going to work on a monday following one of our kick-our-own-ass losses, at a place filled with cowboys fans and blue hairs who don't know anything outside of how to serve up heart-attack casseroles and pass judgement on my dark hair feels like the biggest christing hangover week....after week...after week. i blame tom jackson. last time he picked us to go to the superbowl we had one of the worst defenses in nfl history. this year he did it again and we have the....i just don't even know what to call it. my bro-in-law informed me that we're leaving for oklahoma on sunday instead of monday because if he's home, he'll watch the game and no one wants to watch the texans lose to jacksonville at home.

and after loosing 8 straight (before this season, our biggest schnide was 6 games....that's including expansion years when they're supposed  to lose 6+ in a row), i realize now that we need discipline and coach it's-on-me is hardly the one to give it. whole team has collapsed. last time we played well was before the first jacksonville game last year. that's not quarterback or coach. that's bad moves weakening the line, predictability, letterman jackets and movie contracts, silly dances after doing yer damn job, boneheaded penalties, bad kickers...and the only thing that's made sense this season has been ed reed's post game comments last week.

it's like when you break your favorite coffee cup and you look at the big pieces and you're like "i can do this! i can glue this back together!" and you try and puzzle it together and find it's really just not salvageable. sweep it up and get a new  coffee cup.

2012 White Sox were looking good and gave me some hope for a nice 2013 season.

Hmmmmmm......I'm a Kings fan that up till June of 2012, only saw her team go past the first round twice. EVERY year I had high expectations......those experts knew not what they spoke of.

I still can't believe they won it all and I sit beneath the banner at the games. surprise
Hey, next season will be great, watch and see.

Kind of opposite for me, as far as baseball. Braves went from worst (1990) to first (1991) only to lose to the Twins in the bottom of the tenth in game seven of the World Series. I died a little that night.

At least the Cubs have won something, however long ago. I know they just came into the league in 1977 but I have a feeling the Mariners streak will outlast me. At least the Seahawks have given me a slight glimmer of hope that it will happen for them at some point in my lifetime.

Marlins are killing me.  Bright spot for 2013 is NLROY Jose Fernandez.

Dolphins kill me every year.

But I still support them.   Not a homer.  When they suck I say so.

I can not get emotionally invested in a team I have no control over.   I slap myself if I catch myself saying "We"

Gaylord Perry never played for the Pilots. He was a Mariner in 1982 and 1983.

(Or are you just messing with Jess by saying the wrong team? Oh well, don't care either way.)
#29 | 253 days ago

1986 Red Sox... one out away from the World Series... that's all I'm going to say about that.
1996 Patriots... They had the team but folded their tents and went home in the second half of the SB
2011 Red Sox... played 3/4 or more of the baseball season like a "dream team" and ended the year as a dumpster fire.

Nope, I remember stashing the cards of the Pilots players as a kid, and remembered Perry finally revealing how he threw the spitter while in a Seattle uni. Thought it was with the Pilots. Anywho, 45 years ago was a long time. Google is awesome.

The 1996 Broncos loss to Jacksonville in the playoffs. The Jaguars. Possibly a better team than the ones that won the next two Super Bowls.

And the 98-99, 99-00 Avs who lost to the Stars in the Conference finals both times.

I was real happy to see Elway win a Super Bowl toward the end of his career a few years back, but the Broncos in the following Super Bowl kicking the Falcons butts was a killer for me. Still waiting for one more shot at a championship.

If you don't care, why respond?

Also, in regards to the Cubs.....................how many fans have been fans of the team since they've last won? If a person starts rooting for a team in 1990 and another starts rooting for the Cubs in 1990, and neither's team has won, aren't they both in the same boat? Sports heartache is sports heartache.

Well, that would make sense except for the fact that the 105 years of crap is thrown in your face over and over and over again so that even if you've been a fan for, lets say, 23 yrs, the 105 years of horse crap has now become a part of your existence, regardless of how long of a fan you have been.
