SI's analysis of NFL Guys who have worn out their welcome:

1. Randy Moss | WR, Raiders-Moss has made it clear he has no interest in performing for Oakland. The latest excuse is that he isn't producing because he's unhappy. Whatever the reason, he has to go. He's a major distraction and will never help this team reach the postseason.

2. Dennis Green | Coach, Cardinals-It seems like a foregone conclusion that Green will be let go at the end of the season, if not sooner. The Cardinals have too much talent to have the worst record in the NFL. In addition to Green, Arizona might also fire VP of football operations Rod Graves.

3. Simeon Rice | DE, Buccaneers-Though he reached double digits in sacks in each of his first five seasons in Tampa Bay, Rice has just two this year and is getting shut down by guys he'd normally dominate. He's already been called out this season by coach Jon Gruden and former teammate Keyshawn Johnson. To be fair, Rice has been slowed by a shoulder injury, but maybe it's time for this defense to inject some new blood and for Rice to join a new team.

4. Matt Millen | President, Lions-It would be the shock of the offseason if he returned for another year, but people have been wrong in that assumption before about Millen. Still, too many personnel decisions have backfired on him over the years and Detroit appears no closer to the playoffs than before he arrived in 2001.

5. Albert Haynesworth | DT, Titans-The Titans brought back Haynesworth after his five-game suspension for stepping on Andre Gurode's head, but one of the conditions is that he undergo anger-management counseling. We're all for giving a guy a second chance, but the Titans have enough problems without the Haynesworth distraction.

6. Joe Gibbs | Coach, Redskins-His team did make the playoffs last year, but this doesn't appear to be a franchise headed toward the Super Bowl anytime soon. Don't be surprised if Gibbs leaves the team or joins its front office this offseason.

7. Olindo Mare | K, Dolphins-Mare has made just 14 of 22 field goals this season and some of his misses have been very costly for the 3-6 Dolphins. He has been in Southern Florida since 1997 and is probably due for a change of scenery.:eek:
