What was the worst trade in NFL history?
One candidate for Worst Trade in NFL History would be the Atlanta Falcons trading Brett Favre for a 1st round pick from the Packers in 1991. The Falcons ended up getting 19th pick Tony Smith. Favre went on to become a 20-year NFL veteran, Super Bowl champion, and the only player to win the AP Most Valuable Player award three consecutive years.

Many NFL fans will never forget the death of Detroit Lions wide receiver Chuck Hughes on October 24, 1971. Hughes, who had been in the league since 1967, died of a heart attac…k near the end of a Lions-Chicago Bears game in Detroit. He collapsed at the Bears' 15-yard line while on his way back to the huddle. He was later pronounced dead at the age of 28. Chicago won the game 28-23. Hughes, whose family had a history of heart problems, is the only NFL player to die during a game. In his honor, Detroit retired his number (85) and began issuing the Chuck Hughes Award annually to the Lions' most improved player.
It really depends who you ask. Since i am a die hard Green Bay Packers fan i am going to have to say the packers and the bears
Chicago Bears against Washington Redskins. 73-0 in 1940.
June 30, 1992- Eric Lindros traded by the Quebec Nordiques to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Ron Hext…all, Chris Simon, Philadelphia's 1993 1st round draft choice, Philadelphia's 1994 1st round draft choice and $15,000,000. Quebec relocated to Colorado and won 2 Stanley Cups. Forsberg is a likely Hall of Fame player. Lindros never lived up to potential, and suffered frequent injuries, especially concussions. Philadelphia never won a Stanley Cup under Lindros' leadership; Lindros retired never having won a Stanley Cup.
The worst loss in NFL history was in the 1940 NFL Championship game. In this game, the Chicago Bears defeated the Washington Redskins 73-0.
October 23, 2011 the Colts vs Saints. Brees against Painter. Final score was Colts 7 Saints 62.
1940 NFL Championship game Bears VS Redskins Bears win 73-0
The Denver Broncos loss to The San Francisco 49ers 55-10
1. Rusty Lisch; quarterback; Cardinals, Bears; 1980-84: Sure, Leaf and Russell were bigger busts. Lisch, after all, was a fourth-round pick who had backed up Joe Montana at No…tre Dame. But if you have one game you need to lose, and you require a quarterback to take you there, Lisch is - hands down - the man you want. In 115 career attempts he threw one touchdown and 11 interceptions. That one touchdown came in St. Louis on Oct. 9, 1983. The pass traveled a single yard, to tight end Doug Marsh. With Neil O'Donoghue's extra point, the Redskins' lead was cut to 31-14 - late in the contest. One year later, with Jim McMahon and Steve Fuller hurt, Lisch started a game for the Bears against Green Bay. He played so poorly that Mike Ditka pulled him. For Walter Payton.
Ryan Leaf was the worst quarterback possibly even the worst player to play in the NFL ever. He never called a play right , had loads of interceptions , and didn't know how to …evade the pocket! ______________________________________________ DON'T LISTEN TO THE FIRST PERSON who answered this. That is a completely incorrect and biased answer. Ryan Leaf was a STARTING quarterback, which means he was MUCH better than most other quarterbacks in NFL history. To answer your question, it depends on how you define "worst", and very few people keep track of the worst quarterbacks. Leaf was one of the worst quarterbacks who ever got significant playing time in the NFL, which is what I think you're really asking for. The least effective quarterback who ever got a chance to play much was probably Kim McQuilken, who played for the Atlanta Falcons in the 1970s. There's an article on pro-football-reference.com that studies this issue. Leaf ranks very high on the list of "stinkers" no matter how you evaluate it, but the final analysis tabbed McQuilken as the worst.
The worst team in the NFL honor goes to the Detroit Lions. Besides the championships they won before the Super Bowl was a thing they have the most losing seasons in NFL hi…story.
New Orleans saints. Even though they won the super bowl, they still have the longest time of not winning in history. the bills are better
The worst team in NFL history is the 2008 Detroit Lions. They finished at an embarrassing 0-16. They are the only team that has gone winless in a 16 game season, but a few… other teams have gone winless in fourteen game seasons. Maybe next season they will actually try and win a couple of games but this season they just seem to not be trying. Also, their best season was 12-4 (12 wins and 4 losses) and losing an NFC championship game. They haven't even been to a Super Bowl, and they have 2 of the 9 winless seasons in NFL history. The Lions went 0-16 (0 wins and 16 losses) and 0-11 (0 wins and 11 losses; also each 12-4 thing is wins-losses) they have also had 8 straight losing seasons (8 straight seasons of losing at least 9 games and winning 7 games at best) Philadelphia's second-half fireworks have helped them become the first team in NFL history to win their first three games after trailing.
The one I saw but his name I can't think of, shattered his knee in th 1980's. There's one much worse than that. It happened in a pre-season game between the Patriots and …the Raiders. Darryl Stingley of the Patriots was hit by Jack Tatum of the Raiders. The legal hit broke Stingley's neck and left him paralyzed for the rest of his life. Look up Napoleon McCallum of the Oakland Raiders, he rolled his leg over a San Fran 49ner, in the worst way I had ever seen. Ya also got the Joe Theismann leg break, after being hit by LT. And then theres the most famous injury, Dennis Byrd, NYJ, he missed a sack and ran into his own teamate, helmet first. The collision was deafening, the result was a paralysed Dennis Byrd. He shattered his vertebrae. Jeff Fuller suffered a career-ending spinal injury in October, 1989 against the New England Patriots at Stanford Stadium. The game was played at Stanford University due to the Loma Prieta earthquake that damaged Candlestick Park. All-Pro safety Ronnie Lott stated Jeff Fuller was one of the hardest hitting safeties in the NFL. While he is able to walk, he is no longer able to use one of his arms (was able to walk after years)
