Naw. If you've won a championship, that automatically disqualifies the team from the running.
The Bears won something?
What the heck? You don't remember the super-bowl shuffle? 1985 Bears!

Edit: Quite possibly the best team in the history of the NFL.

72 Dolphins might object
I don't think the 72 Dolphins were as good as the 85 Bears. The game changed significantly over those 13 years..and oh yeah, the 85 Bears won more games than the 72 Dolphins :)
The kicker is that the only loss the 85 bears had was on Monday night in the season finale against.....MIAMI.

GO BENGALS!
Hehe, nice... Bengals was the first team I thought of. I think they deserve to be higher on the list than the Clippers just based on fan support.

Milwaukee Brewers. They have a great stadium now, but they can no longer afford to pay a team worth puting on the field. They have had some great years, but as a general trend, they have sucked.

Ya the brewers suck so bad. They need to sell the team to someone who will spend a little money. The current owners thought the new stadium would up attendance and cashflow, but all it did was increase prices and decrease attendance.

While Favre threw the INT, it was the play calling at crucial moments that killed the Packers.
4th and 1 on the goal line in a tight game and you go for it? You NEVER walk away from points. Period.
4th and 1 on the 40. If you get the 1st down, with the offensive line and Running game youve been living by all season the game is over. If you dont get it then you rely on your defesense for the stop. If you Punt it you rely on your defense for the stop.... lets punt!
4th and 26 for the Eagles... and you let a guy run RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE OF YOUR D sit on the 1st down marker and catch the ball? WTF kinda D call is that?!

Horrible.

Oh and yes... the Brewers could certainly be on this list easily. They suck now and have since 1982. The bad thing is their prospect of getting better gets more and more bleak as each year passes. HUGE spiral.

depends on what u are talking anout...the entire career of the bengals franchise hasnt been bad...i mean they made it to 2 superbowls within the last 21 years...but the last 13 years have been the worst of any team.

Go BEngals!

Definatly Brewers. Every year they get one or two great players, but end up trading them away after the season is over.

What about the JailBlazers. They are usually pretty good, but they are pathetic.

Nice try. The Bears lost to Miami when they were 12-0. The Bears won their last 3 game to finish 15-1. Their season finale was against the Lions.

[edit] My vote goes to the Cubs[/edit]

football: the sd chargers (they're just sad to watch minus l.t)
basketball: warriors (what a bunch of underachievers)
