From No Good To Very Bad: The Worst Of Week 1 In The NFL
It's hard to say anything concrete about any team after just one regular season performance; unless of course you're talking about the Browns or the Bucs. They blow, and we all know it. Yet that doesn't stop us from drawing early conclusions anyway. Sometimes the first impression of the season is a perfect snap shot of what is yet to come.
Plus, if we've learned anything from current presidential favorite Donald Trump (FML), it's that being a winner is awesome and that making fun of losers is what winners do. If he's going to be our next president, we better start recognizing the losers so we can stay as far away as possible.
We might as well start now. 2016 isn't getting any further away. Here are some of the worst player and team performances in Week 1 of the regular season, complete with a dash of some of the best Twitter shade thrown their way.
