9. Brett Favre
Not all of Favre’s fall from grace was his fault. Part of it was the incessant fawning the national media insisted on thrusting upon him like a smitten teenager seeing Justin Bieber. Interceptions were seen as heroic examples of his "gunslinger mentality." It got old, quick, and soon there was a Favre backlash. Furthermore, his annual retirements kept fans and teams in limbo, fueling the flames. Then, after throwing the "heroic" interception that cost the Vikings the NFC Championship game, he kept the team in limbo for a few months while he made his decision about whether or not to return to the NFL. He did return, and during a disastrous final season it was revealed that he had sent a lewd text to a former Jets employee when he was QB there. He retired in disgrace... and for good. Maybe. —Johnny Goodtimes
