True PA is what created the whole atmosphere of different guys being in charge from one year to the next. Brady I think gets unfairly blamed for his role in the demise. Its hard to say how accurate that is.
Buck managed under a "win now" regime whose owner limited the org greatly in Latin America. Buck also wasn't in charge of the draft. Tough crowd that puts that much blame on Buck for the current situation. Gonna blame him for 1999-2010 too? The blame lies at the top with Peter Angelo's. Period.
