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.
I think the better example would be to look at things from the other perspective. How many low income or even low spending teams have ever won a Superbowl without spending money on players
I think the Bucs with Sapp are the only franchise ever to do so in the money era of pro football and that Khan is where I'm coming from with Bowlen and this team's financial stance. We wont do **** until we become financially competitive again.
