Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TicketsThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers (often abbreviated as the ‘Bucs’) are a professional American football team based in Tampa, Florida and are currently members of the Southern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL).
The team, along with the Seattle Seahawks, joined the NFL as 1976 expansion teams.
When the franchise entered the league in 1976, the Buccaneers lost their first 26 games. After a brief winning era in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the team suffered through fourteen consecutive losing seasons. For the past decade, however, they have been a consistent contender, and won Super Bowl XXXVII at the end of the 2002 season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished their season with a 4-12 record, tied for third worst in the NFL. For the 2007 Pro Bowl the ‘Bucs’ will only send one player, cornerback Ronde Barber.
