4. New York Jets

Like the Dallas Cowboys, the Jets crashed and burned last year when it mattered most, costing them a trip to the playoffs. To add insult to injury, Gang Green had to sit and watch as two of their biggest rivals, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants, made it all the way to the Super Bowl. Similar to the Brett Favre experiment of 2008, Jets brass decided to keep fan interest high after a Giants Super Bowl victory by making a big splash in the off-season, acquiring the wildly popular comeback kid Tim Tebow. One small problem, though – the Jets already have a starting quarterback, the hot-and-cold Mark Sanchez. Will the two-headed QB work for the Jets? Will it be a fiasco that costs GM Mike Tannenbaum and head coach Rex Ryan their jobs? It's never a dull moment in Jetsville.
