- WR Anthony Gonzalez: 664 yards, 4 TDs in 2008 --> 2 games, 67 yards, 0 TDs since.

- OT Jared Gaither: was a good tackle and he kept Oher at RT (when many thought he'd be installed at LT quickly), then had a back injury, sucked, didn't have a passion for the game.

- OT Marcus McNeil: Pro-Bowler in his first two years, retired last year due to injuries. Good for a year or two, Chargers thought they had found their LT of the future, then nothing.

- Chester "Nah brah, we don't need to draft Adrian Peterson, we've got Chester" Taylor, Justin Fargas, Marion Barber, Joseph Addai, Peyton Hillis, Earnest Graham, Sidney Rice, Eddie Royal (as a rookie in DEN), Joseph Addai, Cedric Benson, Ryan Grant, LaMont Jordan, Jason Babin, Brandon Lloyd, Santonio Holmes, Kyle Orton, all had a max of like three good years and then they fizzed out rather quickly.
Also Travis Henry and a plethora of Broncos RBs.

This is turning into a thread about players who were basically journeymen but had relatively brief starting roles. I think the idea was more about players who had a couple of big games in succession and then went back to anonymity.

Again, think Samkon Gado. Did he make his first career start on Monday Night Football or something?

Given the lack of defensive players in this thread, Im gonna toss one out there: Nathan Vasher.
Had a pretty good rookie year, a great 8 int/Pro Bowl/All Pro second year, and then he basically fell off the cliff after a below average third year.

Javon Walker - Great tools, couldn't stay healthy.

Jerry Porter - Great tools, something missing in the intangibles.

Kevin Hardy - Impressive athletically and performance-wise early on, even if not quite living up to his draft position. Lost the spark.

Tim Rattay - I'll throw in a homer pick. Screwed by the organization many times over, starting with gutting the team before 2004, then drafting Smithtoast to be their eyebrows of the future, then Standpoint Nolan sending him to Tampa Bay for a 7th round pick to make things easier on Smithtoast as he went on to have the worst rookie season by a QB in history. He didn't help his cause by injuring himself in non-contact drills.

And the biggest one of all...

Marcellus Wiley. What. The ****. Happened? He was going to be a star for a long time, had all the tools to go with it...and then his performance just fell off a cliff and he never returned.

I think Michael Clayton was ****** by Jon Gruden. I remember reading an article about how Gruden showed Clayton a picture of Terrell Owens and said, "Ahhh want you to look like that next year"...you know, all Big 'N Fisiculll like t.OOoooooo. So Clayton put on weight, made himself more susceptible to injury, slowed himself down...and he was never the most physically gifted guy to begin with, so that was a death sentence.

Only 3 good years of the 11. Not much before he blew up in KC, and then a few years of nuthin before he's forgotten. Flash. In. Pan. in slow motion.


HOF? That's a joke. And an insult to the HOF. Just like Cadillac Williams' cleats in a case.

HOF? That's a joke. And an insult to the HOF. Just like Cadillac Williams' cleats in a case.
But he was going to Pro Bowls and I think he was an All Pro at least once. Maybe twice. He had a good career, although it was short. He was a superstar for a while.

Olandis Gary is another guy that I forgot about. Came in for Terrell Davis and ran for over 1100 yards in 12 starts. Hurt his knee the following season and was never the same. He was out of football not long after.

I remember Kawika Mitchell did the same thing except with the bills after that playoff run in 07.

Not "only" three good years. He "only" had three years of 2000+ combined yards from scrimmage, another 1000-rushing-yard season with the Ravens, was Jamal Lewis' primary backup the year the Ravens won the Super Bowl, and was on pace to lead the league again in rushing yards, total yards and touchdowns for the fourth year in a row when he got injured, and he didn't return very well from that because he was like 31 at the time. He had a excellent career and was possibly the best running back in football for about three and a half years.
