Buffalo Bills 2000s Worst-Decade Team - Conclusion

At the beginning of May MattRichWarren presented us with his Buffalo Bills 2000s All-Decade Team series.  And for about a month we voted on a series of poles to determine who was worthy of being on that team.  But more often than not we also ended up complaining over the limited sometimes horrible talent that we had to pick from for any given position.  So it was about at the TE position that I thought "hey why don't we also vote on the worst players that played for this team over the last decade?"  And so here we are.

Now just like MattRichWarren's series I have a few criteria for players to be eligible for this team.  They had to have played in at least a full season's worth of games in this decade to be eligible.  Starting is not requirement, but you do have to have played significant amounts of snaps in those games.  That means that, for example, the Bills 3rd receiver might make the list, but a 4th or 5th stringer wont be considered.  That means that we wont end up voting for 7th rounders that ended up playing 2 snaps.  These are going to be real players that played real roles on this team over the last ten years.  And just because a player ended up on the All-Decade team does not mean that you can't also be on the worst-decade team.

Well this the end (finally) of the worst team series.  I've got to say i really enjoyed putting on this (excessively) long series for you readers.  Although I have to admit it brought back more bad memories than I cared for, I also hope that it can help us look to the future for a hopefully better decade of football.  We might not be off to the best start, but the Colts didn't get to draft Payton Manning by being good either.

Anyways on to the recap.

The Biggest margin of victory?  Mike Williams by 85% and 165 votes.

The closest race? Sam Aiken over Jeremy McDaniel by 2 votes.

So there you have it folks, an amalgamation of some of the worst "pro" football players the NFL has ever seen.  A team so bad that I doubt they could even beat the 2008 Detroit Lions.  This would quite possibly be the worst team in football history if they ever actually had to play a game together.

Hope you guys enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!  Now on to a (hopefully) better decade of football!

 

Oh and one last poll just for kicks.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
