Pat Bowlen

Those examples aren't good enough, IMO. We didn't sign all those free agents in one offeseason and then go to the Super Bowl. We did it piecemeal over several seasons and good draft picks were already in place.

The same goes for the Cowboys in the nineties. Sure Sanders and Haley were big signings, but they got Irvin, Aikman and Emmit Smith out of the draft and by trading players away. They didn't sit down one offseason and sign eight dudes to huge contracts and then magically waltz into the Super Bowl.
