I have read Texans fans state that they arent the worst expansion team ever. Well... They are. This season they finally won a division and made the playoffs. But since the merger and what we now know as the modern NFL the Houston Texans are the worst expansion team ever and took longer than any other modern expansion team to make the playoffs. Tampa Bay... 1976 and made playoffs in 1979. ( 3 years ) Seattle...... 1976 and made playoffs in 1983. ( 7 years ) Carolina ..... 1995 and made playoffs in 2nd season ( 2 years) Jacksonville ... 1995 and made playoffs in 2nd season ( 2 years ) Cleveland ... 1999 and made playoffs in 4th season ( 4 years ) Houston .... 2002 and made playoffs in 10th season ( 10 years) Thems the facts. Now I feel better.
