Hell even the draft was a farce. None of the top talent would sign with us.
IIRC we drafted Tommy Nobis big time LB from TX and Dick Butkis. There were a few others but until Little signed we had no shot at top talent.
We were outclassed by KC which used to be the Dallas Stars IIRC Oakland and San who started out as the LA Chargers. No one wanted to play in Podunk DEN.
