The unwanted midseason NFL awards

Worst QB:

Blaine Gabbert [Jacksonville Jaguars]
The third year Gabbert came into the year as the favorite over Chad Henne for the Jaguars Quarterback job. He went 0-3 before breaking his thumb. Backup Henne took over and went winless also but he nearly pulled a couple wins off. Gabbert then returned and got thrashed by 37-3 one day after Jacksonville's Head Coach expressed his "utmost trust in Blaine's ability" and "he's got a lot of potential." However, after being benched by Henne in the loss, Gabbert lost his job and hasn't started a game since. He's thrown 9 interceptions  and just 1 touchdown.

Biggest Fantasy Bust 

C.J. Spiller [Buffalo Bills]
Although I can't exactly call Spiller a fantasy bust since he's been playing through a high ankle sprain, it doesn't change the fact that he was a 1st or 2nd round pick in most Fantasy leagues. He obviously hasn't played like one. While he may not get the award if he can get back to 100% he has still been the biggest bust thus far this year.

Most Underperforming team

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1-8
The Bucs came into year the expected to get AT LEAST 9 wins and contend for a division title. But Tampa Bay has been a disappointment so far and that has been orchestrated by Head Coach Greg Schiano. The team has also lost Back Doug Martin to a season-ending injury. But they were expected to be 5-3 or 4-4 at the midway point, not the measly team that they are. The Bucs showed a glimpse of how good they could be when they went up 21-0 to the NFC-best Seahawks. They ended up taking the Hawks to overtime before falling 27-24 in overtime.
