Every now and then, I like to re-evaluate the most dysfunctional teams the NFL has to offer. As we near the halfway point of the NFL season, this seems as good a time as any to once again take a look at the worst functioning teams in the league. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Embattled head coach Greg Schiano is leading a squad of little-talent players that have no fight left in them. Even worse, Schiano himself has been accused of leaking confidential information about former starting quarterback Josh Freeman. Throw on a number of character concerns and we have our most dysfunctional team of the season. The good news, at least for fans of the Buccaneers, is that help is on the way. After the Bucs hit the reset button at the end of the season, the team can begin moving on from the embarrassing Greg Schiano era. Houston Texans The Texans are a strange team. After getting out of the gate early with two wins, the Texans have lost five straight games, turning a promising season into an utter debacle. The odd part is how much talent the team has. Matt Schaub was once a solid quarterback, and the offense still has plenty of weapons, but this year, the Texans have simply imploded in all aspects of the game. Like his counterpart in Tampa Bay, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak may not be keeping his job much longer. St. Louis Rams At 3-4, the Rams’ record is far better than their team. Unlike other equally terrible teams, there doesn’t seem to be an exit strategy in place, and without a top draft pick, the Rams may be forced to continue the flailing Sam Bradford era next season when he’s able to return to the field from a torn ACL. Even worse, there have been rumors that Tim Tebow is on the Rams’ radar. Now, there are a lot of ways to win in the NFL, but Tim Tebow won’t give the Rams a legitimate opportunity to win games. Fortunately, the Rams are likely going to pass on Tebow. [follow]
