3. 1973 Oilers (1-13)
It's not easy to figure out which season was worse for the Oilers, 1972 or 1973. Two years running, Houston racked up identical 1-13 records. But we'll give the '73 squad a slight edge. They gave up 447 points, the most in the NFL, and scored only 199. Things were so bad in Houston that the most exciting development was the invention of the first flak jacket for football, to protect QB Dan Pastorini's ribs. (He set an NFL record for being sacked the most times in 1971, broke it in 1972, and broke it again in 1973.)

Texans can't lay claim to this

It's a process. Just as Rome wasn't built in a day, the crappiest football team to ever step foot on the field can't be built in a single year. The trick is to take high draft picks and sign atleast average FAs, hire decent coaches, and still suck. Can we just make a new contest with our own slanted rules and regulations so we win everytime? We shouldn't really care what others think anyway.
