Maybe they were great in 2011, but not so much in 2012. Maybe there was much buzz about this player, or players, headed into the season.

Whether it's via injury, being an ill-fit, bad coaching, or some other obstacle, the players in the following slideshow have yet to reach their potential during this 2012 season.

Perhaps by year's end, some, if not many, of the athletes listed here will right their ship, get their act together, and play the way their fans, and many experts, had projected.

But until then, they're disappointments, and here's a list of the NFL's worst offenders.

Eagle's defense was a disappointment last year too, even this year they have their moments of brilliance, but mostly its been jun since Castillo was never a defense coach to begin with.

Matthews was overrated to begin, so calling him a disappointment this year isn't much of a stretch. He still has ball security issues, even in his best year last year, and he's nowhere near the gamebreaker that the departed RBs the Chargers had in the last decade were.

That didn't stop everyone from taking him by round 2 or 3 in fantasy. I've found him overrated from the start.

I'm still amazed you were able to stop at 15.

Had to leave a few people off that I'd considered, including David Wilson, who fell behind Andre Brown, despite the disparity of their journeys to the league. Also thought about the Titans defense, since they had a great bend-but-don't-break system in 2011.

Patriots defense could easily be here; they lead the league in giving up plays of over 20 yards. They have blown late leads 3 times to lose games the offense had basically won.

Patriots D wasn't exactly expected to be anything great.
