As the NFL 2022 season is quickly approaching, fans are excited to see their teams play.
However, some NFL fanbases won’t be happy with their teams this season.
This is because their teams are doomed to fail in 2022.
Some of these teams will fail because of mismanagement.
Others will fail because of a lack of talent.
So which three NFL fanbases will see their teams fail in 2022?
3. New York Jets
The New York Jets haven’t had a winning season since 2015.
They are constantly one of the worst NFL teams.
Bro it's hard being a jets fan the people that run this organization has no idea on how to run a football team the is the wrost ran franchise in NFL history Thanks Bell i know Adam Gase didn't play you the right i hope you go some where in shine I'm bout done with the jets

Their problems come from poor management and lack of elite players.
Also, they wasted first-round draft picks on players like Sam Darnold.
However, the Jets have hope with quarterback Zach Wilson.
But his success with the team won’t come until later in his career.
New York also has rookie players that can help the team after playing for a couple of years in the NFL.
So this means that they have a foundation to build on.
However, they are in a tough AFC East division with three teams who are stacked in 2022.
2. Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons will be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.
They no longer have Matt Ryan, who was their quarterback for over a decade.
They’ve lost other key players on offense and defense.
However, the biggest blow comes from them losing Calvin Ridley for all of 2022.

His gambling on NFL games now leaves the Falcons without their best receiver.
This means new starting quarterback Marcus Mariota is without help at the receiver position
They are also in a tough NFC South with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.
This means 2022 isn’t the year for the Falcons.
Even if Ridley gets his suspension overturned, Atlanta doesn’t have hope in their division.
Also, losing defensive players won’t help them with a defense that ranked 26th last season in total yards allowed.
That defense also ranked 29th in points allowed per game.
So with no offense or defense, Atlanta and their fanbase won’t have a good 2022 season.
1. Detroit Lions
There’s a reason the Detroit Lions come in at number one.
That reason is the Ford family mismanagement of the team.
Since taking over in 1963, the Lions’ hopes of being a winning team died after that transaction.
Since then, Detroit has never been in a Super Bowl.
They’ve only been in the NFL playoffs 12 times since 1963.
Of those 12 playoff appearances, they’ve only won one game.
However, the Lions fanbase believes the newest Ford family member will turn the team around.
But they are dead wrong.
She traded away their franchise quarterback, Matthew Stafford.
So while he went to Los Angeles and won a Super Bowl, Detroit ended the 2021 season as the second-worst team in the NFL.
However, the Stafford trade got the Lions multiple first-round picks.
So they can build off those rookie players.
But for 2022, Lions fans will continue to see their team lose.
Until ownership of the Lions is out of the Ford family hands, they will continue to suffer in 2022 and beyond.
