38 years ago Buccaneers hit rock bottom


Bringing up past disappointment is not something I like to do. But when another team breaks a 38-year-old record held by us for the most losses, I couldn’t resist!

“One week ago, the Philadelphia 76ers broke the record for most consecutive losses by a major U.S. pro sports team. Thirty-eight years ago, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers set the record the 76ers broke. On Dec. 4, 1977, the Bucs lost 10-0 to the Chicago Bears at Tampa Stadium. They fell to 0-12 for the season after going 0-14 in 1976, their expansion year, pushing their record stretch of futility to 26 games. The streak ended a week later in New Orleans with a 33-14 win over the Saints, but by then the Bucs had cemented their legacy as one of the worst teams in sports history.” – Reported by Kevin Stone
