Our very own Bills won only 13 games in a five years stretch that spanned the AFL and NFL from 1968 to 1972, or also the five year stretch from 67-71. Those were 14 game schedules though.

My vote would be Sanders but the Lions did have some success in the early 90's going to the NFC championship game and making the playoffs a few times after that. 

Sanders made the playoffs 5/10 years. Not horrible, especially in that era. NFC was a monster in the 90's.

Steve Largent and Eric Dickerson come to mind


Barry Sanders by a mile

Barry played for some very good teams mainly because he was such a great running back but Simpson would be one that played for a losing team always.

Barry Sanders (Thurman's backup. :) ) and Archie Manning top my list.

I'd go with OJ or Barry Sanders.  Does Bruce Smith's 1985 Bills count?

How about Marino?

Maybe Payton with colts? They won 1 game the year he dropped after being a perennial playoff team.

For a while, but hard for me to include people who played in Super Bowls.

Walter Payton and Lee Roy Selmon are both excellent choices. The teams Payton played on his first seven seasons were historically bad. I can only imagine the numbers he would have put up with better players around him. His QBs were Gary Huff/Bob Avellini/Mike Phipps/Vince Evans but he led his team in receptions 5 times. The receiving corps was even worse.

The game against the Vikings he ran for 275 yards the Bears won 10-7.

Floyd Little's Broncos never made the playoffs.
Archie Manning isn't in the pro football hall of fame. T

Yes Marino on the Dolphins is up there. Shula absolutely ran that team into the ground.

Sebastian Janikowski has been with the Raiders during their best of times and worst of times - hopefully the Raiders make a push this year so he can close out his career on a high note

Future HOF Randy Moss has never won a ring, although he played for some pretty good teams and went to the SB with the Pats and Niners.

That is bad but Thomas' winning percentage through 10 seasons with the Browns is actually a tick worse at 30%. 48/160

 

And his rookie season in 2007 the Browns won 10 games missing the final wild card though. Throw out that first season and over the last 9 season Thomas and the Browns have a 26% winning percentage.

Jerry Hughes ate him up.
