And on a slightly more morbid angle, with Al Davis starting to look like the cryptkeeper from Tales of the Crypt there is the possibility that he may pass on sooner rather than later and the team may be taken over by somebody at least semi-competent. Mike Brown is going to live forever and when he does finally pass on we can look forward to his daughter and son-in-law continuing to run the franchise in the same backward manner.
Honestly, I think the Bengals are worse. Al Davis really wants to win, and he's mad as heck when he doesn't. He just makes bad decisions. Brown could care less if he wins or not, it's all about the bottom line. He knows what it takes to win and refuses to do it. A perfect example of this is not trading Chad when you could of gotten a 1st round pick for him a season or 2 ago and not trading Palmer when you could of improved the team in a couple of positions. He would rather let both go and get nothing in return.
