Bud Adams and the Oilers were much more aggressive and did make big pushes for winning it all. Bud won two AFL Championships with Charley Hennigan and George Blanda, won a bidding war with the NFL for Heisman winner Billy Cannon before the dark years of the early 70's...but after that Bud always made big moves to make legit runs at the SB. Sometimes it feels like we just want to be "good" around here. After the "dark years" and hiring Sid Gillman (that was a HUGE deal back in the day), the huge trade for Earl Campbell, historic contract for Warren Moon, going after Buddy Ryan, trading for Wilbur Marshall...I could go on and on. The Oilers just felt more aggressive.
