Just posted this morning over at Bleacher Report – the 10 Worst Sophomore Slumps in NFL History.
Worst being a relative term, but these are pretty bad drop offs.
You can check out a sample here – this one about Steelers legend Franco Harris – and head over to the full article as well.
Franco Harris ended up in the Hall of Fame after a career where he had six straight years with 1,000 yards or better (eight total) and acquired four Super Bowl rings.
For his rookie season, Harris topped 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns, as well as winning the NFL Rookie of the Year Award.
His second year looked a lot like someone who might have been a flash in the pan.
Harris struggled a ton in his second season as teams focused on him, and in general, the entire Pittsburgh Steelers offense struggled a bit.
Of course, Harris bounced back for the aforementioned streak of 1,000-yard seasons.
You can take a look at the whole thing here.
As always, thanks for reading and keep yourself tuned in here for more throughout the week.
