2002: David Carr (WORST)
Why He’s here: Nobody said being a rookie in the NFL was going to be easy, and Carr found out the hard way in 2002. Considering the Texans were an expansion team and forced Carr into the starting lineup right away behind a porous offensive line, it’s almost a little unfair to declare him the worst in the league that season. He set an NFL record for being sacked 76 times that season. He also recovered 12 of his own fumbles, setting another record. Nobody’s saying it was entirely his fault, but no one can deny how ugly it got for Carr in 2002.
Team Success: Things got off to a promising start, as the Texans beat the Cowboys in their first game as a franchise. But it was all downhill from there. Houston finished the season 4-12, with only the Bengals and Lions winning fewer games.
By the Numbers: Completed 233 of 44 passes (52.5%) for 2,592 yards with nine touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
