The history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
It has been an interesting 37-year run in the NFL for the Buccaneer franchise. The 26-game losing streak to start it all off followed in 1979 by becoming the fastest expansion team to reach a championship game. Then the double-digit losing seasons from 1983 to 1995 until the ownership, coaching and uniform changes saw it all turn round again. And of course, the victory in Super Bowl XXXVII that saw the Vince Lombardi Trophy being brought home to Tampa and the years that followed that euphoric night in San Diego. From the first expansion season game in the Astrodome, right through to the 2012 season finale in Atlanta, everything is here in this section of BUCPOWER.COM including every game, every player and details from start to finish.
