FWIW when the Owners and NFL Union agreed on a labor contract there were two owners who were not in favor of that contract. They were Mike Brown and Ralph Wilson. Its kind of ironic now because all the owners think its a bad contract and are willing to lock out some players if some concessions aren't given.
Don't get me wrong Mike is not a good owner. But he has come a long way from where he was in the 90's. Starting with Marvin and going forward Mike will give up more power with each additional coach. I would love to see someone come in and buy the team or have him hire a GM. But this years debacle isn't on Mike, he handed out the money assembled a pretty talented football team.
