1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season
The 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season was the team’s first in the National Football League. The Buccaneers gained infamy as the first team to play an entire 14-game season without winning or tying a single game. They did not score until their third game and did not score a touchdown until their fourth. They lost by more than a touchdown 11 times. Colorful, maverick former USC coach John McKay, whose wisecracking remarks occasionally agitated fans and the league, led the team. Lee Roy Selmon, the Buccaneers’ first Hall of Fame representative, made his rookie debut in an injury-plagued season.
