Keep one other thing in mind - not one NFL team looked to hire him once he was fired by Dallas. What does that tell you?
Well in 1987 he drafted Kelvin Martin, Kevin Gogan and Ron Francis...so right now he drafted 5 starting players on the Cowboys dynasty teams as well as drafting Walker who we re-built the entire franchise on. Again, Gil has forgotten more about the NFL than any of us will ever know.
