    I bet he's more interested in the Jets than he is with Houston right now.

    Raiders imploded after they got to the Super Bowl (starting with Barrett Robbins mental breakdown) and the Jags went to shit right after they lost to the Patriots in the AFC title game but not like this situation.

    Yeah even in cases of franchises going down in flames quickly (post MJ bulls, every time the Marlins win anything of consequence), the reasons are always completely boring. Cheap ownership, stupid GM, etc. This is much more insane than anything I can remember

    Between 95 and 01, the Mariners won 3 AL West pennants and had 4 playoff appearances. They traded Randy Johnson in 98 at the deadline because they fell out of playoff contention and he was set to become a free agent. Traded Griffey after 99 because he wanted to play for the Reds. Lost Arod after 00 to an absolutely monster free agent contract from the Rangers. Added Ichiro in 01 and somehow tied the all-time MLB wins record with 116. Haven’t been back to the playoffs ever since.

    Not sure if that counts or not since it’s not as quick, but certainly makes up for it in the going to shit department post 01 :idk:

    How about 49ers a few years ago?

    It's hard to think of a NFL franchise with more off-season turnover than the 2014-'15 49ers. This team, which finished 8-8 last season (the first non-winning season in Jim Harbaugh's tenure) watched Harbaugh, offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio depart to other teams; saw starting linebackers Patrick Willis and Chris Borland, defensive tackle Justin Smith and right tackle Anthony Davis retire; lost guard Mike Iupati, cornerbacks Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox, receiver Michael Crabtree and running back Frank Gore to free agency; and released offensive tackle Jonathan Martin and receiver Stevie Johnson. For good measure, the 49ers traded punter Andy Lee, who tied for third-best yards-per-punt average in 2014, to the Browns for a seventh-round pick in 2017 ... because general manager Trent Baalke decided to take a punter, Clemson's Bradley Pinion, in the fifth round of the draft.

    the marlins won 92 games and a world series in 97, and then won 54 the next year.

    i don't know if that's the worst, but it has to be up there

    they weren't over .500 until 2003, when they also won the world series :idk:

    Why did the Seahawks give a contract extension to their shitty GM? My son is a Seahawks fan so I try to keep up with them for him. That shit blew my mind considering how terribly he has drafted and managed the roster.
