Going back a bit, John Riggins...huge season with the Jets then goes to the Skins for a couple forgettable seasons before busting out for several years including a couple super bowl appearances. I think he might have even been MVP of one of them. Probably more due to injuries and the way the Skins used him when he first signed with them than actual slump.

Al Davis killed Marcus Allen's career, and Marty Schottenheimer(sp) revived it.

I was thinking Reggie as well but I wouldn't necessarily say he has "resurrected his career". If anything he is showing signs of progress.

Marcus Allen... end of discussion. He rotted on the bench for 2+ years with the Raiders.

2003 was the down year in all categories. The Giants also went 4-12 that year.

I mean it was a slight drop but it wasn't some horrible career depleting year that he had to resurrect his career from
