10. St. Louis Rams

Ever since their magical run from 1999 through 2001 (which resulted in a Super Bowl XXXIV victory and a hard-fought Super Bowl XXXVI loss), for the most part, the St. Louis Rams have fallen flat. Case in point – a stinky 2011 season, which saw the team flounder at 2-14, leading to the firing of both head coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney. But the Rams' holding pattern of mediocrity may change soon, as former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher has been brought on board to right the ship. Ex-Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has signed on as well. Hopefully, Rams fans have built up strong stomachs over the past few seasons: there's no reason to believe that Schotty won't construct a befuddling offensive game plan like the ones that gave Jets fans indigestion the past few seasons.
