5. Washington Redskins
The Redskins aren't the worst franchise, but they are the worst at signing free agents. The Redskins think they can sign people and make them better - but when they sign them - they slack off. Not saying any names *Cough Cough* Albert Haynesworth. If you are a Redskins fan, when they started off 3-0, I bet you smiled more than the day your kids were born or you got married, because it doesn't happen often. With a 552-527-27  regular season record (Although above .500) count the ties as losses, you've got yourself a 552-554 regular season record, and it doesn't look like it's getting much better.

4. Buffalo Bills
When you go to four straight Super Bowls and lose all four,  your franchise really does suck - and although the team has talent, they don't hire the right coaches to help those players rise to their full potential. Their regular season record is pretty laughable, 364-416-8, add those ties as losses - and boom - your sitting at 364-424, which is worse than before. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Stevie Johnson are a prime example of talent on a bad team, and include Fred Jackson to that list. Last season when the Bills started off winning four out of their first five, and ending with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2012 Draft.

3. Cleveland Browns
They have been horrible for as long as I can remember, but they do have the best record of the teams on this list, sitting at 489-410-13. That aside, they suck and everyone knows it. Their best days in the 2000s were when they had Jamal Lewis at running back or when they had a Playoff Run in 2002. Until the Browns have more than six wins in one season, they will be on this list.
 
2. Detroit Lions
No matter what they do, until they have three consecutive winning seasons, they will be at least in the top 5 as most laughable teams. The Lions have an overall record of 496-593-32 , they almost have lost 100 more games than they have won in their regular season history. They have the worst record in a single regular season than any team in NFL history, at 0-16, just four seasons ago. Although, it looks like they are back on track with a healthy Matthew Stafford and Megatron on offense, they might work their way out of this list, but until then - at No. 2 they will sit.

1. The one... the only...... Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers are absolutely, positively, undoubtebly one of the worst teams in the history of the NFL and their overall record of 222-341-1  proves my point. They were the first team to lose every game of the regular season, going 0-14, and they hold the record for longest losing streak in NFL history. Buccaneer fans thought they had something going when they had a 10-6 record and barely missed the Playoffs, then the next season they get blown out by basically every team with a record above .500. Josh Freeman, Mike Williams, LeGarrette Blount and Kellen Winslow, Jr. are all potential Pro Bowlers each season, but once again, a coaching staff that doesn't know what the hell they are doing with their players.
