They would have made a run in 88 if they had played Flutie instead of Eason. It was Berry's worst mistake as a coach. Grogan was hurt. (Grogan was always the best choice when healthy, btw). And he was much better than Matt Cassel. Pennington a better comp maybe? And remember, Flutie was 36 by the time he got back in the league, and he got Eason'd in Buffalo his first year (by Ralph Wilson).
