You'll notice a lot of teams make excuses for their GM that their hands are tied by the owners. There is some degree of truth to that but then you see Lombardi confronting ownership to go full rebuil mode after a couple years in.

That's one of the big differences that separates Lombardi from guys like Jay Feaster and Dave Taylor.

Notice it's been six years and DT hasn't had another gig as the top guy since.
The way Taylor kind of took credit for Quick and Brown, just rubs me the wrong way. Lombardi developed them into what they are right now.
