as the worst franchise in NFL History. Only
known for performances in last few decades, never given consideration for the above average performances for the other approximately
60 years of franchise history.
Franchises considered to be worse, starting from
the worst:Cardinals-First from
St. Louis, then
, Phoenix, now Arizona. Most losses. In their
80 years of existance... 8 playoff appearances. No one wants them.
Saints-AKA 'Aints'. Only
recently have their
performance turned around, thanks to Drew Brees.
Texans-Haven't been around that long, but their
performance is still horrible other
recent. Worst winning percentage
Falcons-Despite recent performances
and their famed
1977 defense. Nothing. Riddled with losing seasons
Bengals-No Championships, losing record. Only
12 winning seasons
Buccaneers-Home of the FIRST defeated team 0-14. Second
Worst Win Percentage
39.3%. Their only
Superbowl win is considered a fluke.
Bills-They missed the Superbowl win four
times in a row.
Seahawks-No championships even with a great coach. Only
team to go to the playoffs with a losing record.
Detroit Lions-Not the best team, but not the worst. With four
championships although many, many years ago. Failures to win in the playoffs except once since
1957, and of course no Superbowls. Even if they are the few to yet win one, and to have a defeated season 0-16. I feel, though, the Lions are emerging from
the abyss to become a contender for decades to come.
I would list a site which gives extremely detailed
and accurate information, but it's cold hard football
facts dot com. hint hint.
