2001: Chris Weinke (WORST)
Why He’s Here: Fresh off winning the Heisman Trophy the previous year, most expected a little better out of Weinke as a rookie, especially since he was a 29-year-old rookie after a minor league baseball career prior to playing at Florida State. However, he soon became yet another example of a Heisman winner whose talents didn’t translate to the NFL. Not that he had a great supporting cast around him, but the talent just wasn’t there with Weinke, who never got much of a chance to play after his rookie season.
Team Success: Behind Weinke, the Panthers went 1-15 in 2001, which explains why they quickly moved on from him the next season.
By the Numbers: Completed 293 of 540 passes (54.3%) for 2.931 yards with 11 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.
