Good football? They had 23 wins in four seasons and were only in playoff contention once, in 2003.

In 2004, they won won their first three then promptly lost 13 of their next 15.
I'm not going to get into the whole debate about Ottawa crowds being better than that of other teams when those teams hit their rough patches (which were nothing compared to Ottawa's), but don't kid yourself into thinking they provided good football.
There was the occasional game, sure (the overtime win against Montreal was as good a game as I've ever seen) but for the most part it was blown leads, ass-kickings and out of the playoffs by mid-September.
