#16. LA Chargers, Ryan Leaf (2000)
This one couldn’t have been more obvious. Where are we supposed to start with Ryan Leaf’s second season with the San Diego Chargers? Was it the fact that he threw five interceptions in his first two games? Or how about the fact that he was benched for backup quarterback Moses Moreno prior to the third game of the season?
Ironically, the piece de resistance wasn’t even the fact that Leaf finished with a 1-8 record as the team’s starter after shuttling in and out of the lineup, trading stints with Moreno. The worst part has to be the fact that he allegedly faked a hand injury, using that as an excuse to miss practice, and instead use that practice time to head to the golf course.
