Yeah. It's Bob. It will always be Bob. Bob is a football moron. He's a smart businessman and seems to be very much an NFL business-side guy but he's football stupid and he's not getting any smarter.
People point to his success in business and say "This man is no moron. This man is a brilliant businessman" but that doesn't really make any difference. We've seen successful businessmen enter the league and be completely inept owners (who still make money hand over fist in spite of their incompetence) when it comes to football decisions.
Bob's going to be football-stupid his entire life. He's had over 12 years to work it out and his weaknesses are no different today than they were when he started. He's not Bud Adams. He's a different kind of problem. One that is (so far) harder to get mad at but equally as frustrating.
