Episode Summary

EDIT
Birth of the Bucs
AIRED:
Expansion teams of the 1960s and 1970s had no edge when they started play. No team exemplified this better than the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They finished their inaugural season with an 0-14 record, unique in NFL history. At the time, NFL Films followed the Bucs every step of their troubled training camp, exhibitions, and regular season. The result was Birth of the Bucs, which, according to Steve Sabol, consisted of nothing but football follies. Because the Buccaneers' management made no attempt to honor the original Tampa Bay squad, this Lost Treasures episode was the only recognition the 1976 Bucs received. Interviews with former players and assistant coaches who toiled for head coach John McKay, who had died in June 2001, vividly retell the worst season in NFL history.moreless
