2014: Josh McCown (WORST)
Why He’s here: Even for a journeyman and career backup like McCown, this was bad. The previous season, McCown threw just one interception for the Bears in 224 pass attempts. That created the expectation that he may not win games for the Buccaneers but at least he wouldn’t lose them. Well, that didn’t happen with McCown’s 4.3% interception rate. His completion percentage also dropped from 66.5% to 56.3% from his part-time duty in Chicago the previous season. No one expected McCown to lead the Bucs to the Super Bowl, but he fell well short of the rather meager expectations in 2014.
Team Success: With McCown and Mike Glennon at quarterback, Tampa Bay finished the 2014 campaign 2-14. McCown started 11 of those games and was 1-10. The next season, the Bucs used the top overall pick on Jameis Winston.
By the Numbers: Completed 184 of 327 passes (56.3%) for 2,206 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
