2 of 12

Josh McCown. . 1-11 | 11 TDs, 14 INTs. . 2014. Josh McCown. Josh McCown. 14. player. 48

While he's technically No. 14 on our list, Josh McCown is at the bottom of a new segment of it. We've entered the portion of the rankings where everyone has started 10 or more games, which McCown did in 2014 but only managed to win a single game.

This is how bad the state of the franchise was in 2014 -- Josh McCown was a prized free agent signing. Not that he was a top guy on the market, but he was touted as an experienced veteran and a key part of a big free agent class that included other busts like Michael Johnson and Alterraun Verner.

McCown started the first three games of the season, all of which were losses included a 56-14 blowout against Atlanta. Following that loss McCown was benched for Mike Glennon (oof, right?) but would take the reins again in Week 10.

If there's a lasting legacy for McCown in Tampa Bay it's that he turned in a season where the team earned the No. 1 pick and began the Jameis Winston era the following year.

3-8 | 9 TDs, 9 INTs. Bruce Gradkowski. 13. 48. 13. 2006-2007. . . Bruce Gradkowski. player

Not that he was the worst Bucs quarterback of the last 20 years, but the shared trauma fans have usually always involves some mention of Bruce Gradkowski. Again, it's not his fault but he's the poster child for the many quarterback dart throws of the Gruden era.

Things didn't start too bad, as Gradkowski managed to go 2-1 in his first three starts while notching back-to-back wins. That's where the good times stopped rolling, as Gradkowski managed just one more win over his next eight starts.
