Not getting into the cat fight,
But I do believe Alex Gibbs was brought in to fix the OL and he was promised the 1st rd pick that yr. Just like with Wade and the defense. I've got no proof of that. Just call this an educated guess.
Rick was smart enough to listen to a HOF OL coach and pick D.Brown.
