There was no gap bridged. The NFL lost a court case and it was dangerous to continue down that path.
There was no CBA from the 87 strike until the McNeil case verdict in 89. You are making this out to be some kind of peaceful resolution when it is a worst case scenario in labor negotiations.
The major difference was that the original terms favored the owners so they continued to play under them. That's it.
Making 2 years of bickering and litigation and the utter destruction of a players union into a peaceful scenario, I am not quite sure how you can do that.
