    It’s unbelievable how inept our franchise was back then. We traded a very good WR for a backup QB, who never took a snap for us. Michael is a pretty poor owner & yet he’s 1000x better than his father was.

    If you read the whole article the real truth is in there. The Cards didn't think he was crazy, or underrate him, his name was Bobby Moore, then he changed it to Ahmad Rashad. Bidwill didn't like having a guy convert to Islam so he traded him.

    That doesn't surprise me a bit. Old man Bidwill ranks right up there as one of the worst owners in ANY sport in history. I earlier said Rashad was very good. Let me correct myself. Rashad was great! I'll always remember his 98 yard pass from Hart when they dragged him down at the 1. It may still be the longest NON TD play from scrimmage in NFL history.

    I remember this play well. Pretty sure it was 1974. People forget that 1973 was Coryell’s first season with us and we were 4-9-1. Even when we started off hot in 1974, it wasn’t until we beat the Cowboys that I felt this team was legit. And that single play made me believe this team had the intestinal fortitude to actually win the NFC East.

    Yes, that Al Cowlings. But not the same Mike McCoy who was part of the disastrous 2018 Cards campaign. Also of note, the Browns pick of Mike Phipps was their “reward” for shipping HOF stud WR Paul Warfield to the Dolphins that offseason.

    Just more evidence as to why Bill Bidwill was such a poor owner.
