We now have come to the final of our end of season polls. This final poll is not about the best or the greatest. Instead, it is about disappointment. There were many players who were expected to do great things. They did not do them. Which one disappointed you the most?
Here are the candidates:
Andre Ellington: Ellington again could not stay healthy. He was originally expected to finally take the full load after a dinged up 2014. What did he do? He got hurt in Week 1. Then he played in a limited role. Then, when it looked like he would get his chance again after Chris Johnson suffered a leg fracture, he went and got turf toe the very same game. He had some electrifying plays, but was not the player we all hoped he could be and now has lost the starting job to David Johnson.
Sean Weatherspoon: When he was signed as a free agent, many believed he was going to fill that Daryl Washington role. Instead, he tweaked a hamstring in training camp and took his time to come back. Then Kevin Minter and Deone Bucannon played well and Weatherspoon barely saw the field. That one-year Keim contract didn't pan out.
Alex Okafor: He was expected to be a breakout pass rusher. He was supposed to have double digit sacks. That's what he was on pace for in 2014. He even had two sacks in the season opener. But after that, you and I had as many sacks as he did. Plus, he got hurt again. At the end of the season, it looked like he was finally starting to get pressure, but he was mostly invisible this season.
Jonathan Cooper: It was another season of disappointment for the 2013 number seven pick overall. He started the year as the starter, but was not effective. He missed blocks and was not strong at the point of attack. Then he was benched in favor of Ted Larsen.
