Cleveland Browns. Buffalo Bills. Miami Dolphins. Jacksonville Jaguars. Oakland Raiders. St.Louis Rams. Columbus Blue Jackets. Florida Panthers. Seattle Mariners. Miami Marlins. Chicago Cubs.
You're really over-estimating the Oilers. The Panthers won their division and played a Game 7 in the first round two seasons ago. Columbus has been better than us every year except 2012 when we beat them 29th to 30th.
The Browns haven't come close to the playoffs in 5 years, so they're like us in that sense. The Bills pretty much the same thing, although neither team has been frequently amongst the five worst in the league. The Dolphins have had some 7-9 seasons recently, so they've been more competitive than us. Oakland had back-to-back .500 seasons within the last five years, so they're better. Jacksonville is trending into Oiler territory, but still have a .500 season as recently as 2010.
The Mariners are probably about our equal going back to 2009, maybe slightly better. Likewise the Cubs. The Marlins were decent in 2009 and 2010, have to give them the advantage over us.
Yeah, sorry man, you'd like to think that out of the 122 major professional sports teams in North America, we're not nearly the worst, as bad as we've been. But you just listed a bunch of dreadful franchises, and most of them are clearly better than us.
Definitely none worse in the NHL. In MLB, the Houston Astros potentially are, but it's still close, same with Mariners. Nobody in the NFL has been worse IMO. I do believe the Washington Wizards and Sacramento Kings have been a little worse in the NBA.
We're no better than 118th out of 122.
