The 1976 Tampa Bay Buccanners, 1962 New York Mets and 1990 New England Patriots all had one thing in common: They were terrible teams.
The '76 season was the inaugural season for the Bucs and one they wish they could erase. Tampa Bay went 0-14 in its first season, and 0-12 to start its second season before finally posting a win.
The most famous moment of that inaugural season came when coach John McKay was asked to comment on his team's execution.
"I'm in favor of it," McKay replied.
A .250 batting average is somewhat respectable. A .250 winning percentage is not. That was the case for the '62 Mets. And despite a 1-1 start to the '90 season, New England didn't post another win that year.
In a city recently accustomed to winning championships, being associated with a list of worst sports teams of all time seems impossible. However, NBC sports did a great job of reminding New England fans just how good we have it, and just how bad we once had it as well.
