Read War Room by Michael Holley. It goes into great lengths describing the Browns front office during those days, and Lombardi isn't portrayed in the best light. If he were really that great of a GM, wouldn't Belichick have brought him in to help him run the Patriots FO, or even replace Pioli, considering they worked side by side in Cleveland?
