The Oilers have a toxic culture from the top down that is fraught with nepotism. Never a great idea when the Owner and the president are best friends and their wives are best friends as well. Hard to screw it up when you end up bad enough for long enough to get 3 first overall picks in a row as your base to build on but Lowe will give it his best shot I am sure.

The Jets will not be bad enough to be able to land 3 first overall picks anytime soon so they are a very poor example to compare ourselves to.
