    Phillips did a decent job there, but those teams were still very much part of the bad old days. They were as interested in local guys and big names past their prime as they were in developing the best talent. It might be fun to say names like Hokie Gajan, Guido Merkens, Jumpy Geathers and Jitter Fields, but those guys didn't get them a winning record. (Actually, Gajan and Geathers were good players.) I felt bad for Rickey Jackson when I was watching those teams because he was a beast, but he just didn't have nearly enough around him.

    Call him and ask, especially after scoring a touchdown ...

    Just don't be offended if he doesn't answer. He only gets one phone call these days.

    Sam Mills-
    For my money the '80s were the worst era of NFL ownership in the league. Even some of the good teams had crappy ownership (McCaskeys).

    Well ... Clint Murchison sold the Cowboys to Bum Bright. He and Tom Landry barely tolerated the sight of one another.

    At least Washington was stable ... Jack Kent Cooke was fine until he died, ordered the franchise sold and it ended up in the hands of Dan Snyder.

    Hugh Culverhouse was running the Bucs on the cheap. The Irsays were keeping Mayflower in business.

    At least the Hunts and Rooneys have been pretty consistent as was Ralph Wilson. The Brown family - not to be confused with the Browns (not going there with Art Modell) and - and the Bidwills were consistently awful, the latter might have called the Irsays for a truck recommendation.
