One thing I just thought of was whether or not Willis McGahee wouldn't have got injured in the NC game. If he didn't, I think the Texans go with him over Andre Johnson. Not sure if they would but they needed a back to complement Carr so that would have been a possibility. I think Scott even had him mocked to go to the Texans.

What if certain players chose one team over another in free agency?

For instance, what could have happened to David Carr if Texans didn't have a trash offensive line? What would have happened if Eli had stayed in San Diego with Rivers going to the Giants? What if Deion had stayed in San Francisco?

I'll start with one that always bugs me:

What if Randall Cunningham had proper coaching in Philadelphia?



I honestly think the Eagles would have become the early dynasty of the 90s instead of the Cowboys. They already had the lethal defense and with a properly developed and coached offense, in particular Randall, the team could have easily had multiple Super Bowl appearances. We saw what Cunningham was able to do with competent offensive management in Minnesota, but by then his scrambling days were long gone. Just imagine what he could have done in Philadelphia when he still had his legs. Buddy Ryan screwed us all out of watching something truly special.
Ha, right. Because Cunningham was such a great passer. It wasn't just Randy Moss and Cris Carter being unstoppable...so unstoppable that any QB would've had big numbers on the 98 Vikings.

Nah, Cunningham launching it up for Moss in 98 proves he would've been a star in Philadelphia if not for that asshole Buddy Ryan cramping his style. Black, athletic quarterbackzzzz!

Poor Michael Vick. If only he'd been given Randy Moss, Cris Carter, and Robert Smith...he might've had a good year passing one time.

Here's the what if thread scenario for the Bucs:

In 2005: What if Jon Gruden took Aaron Rodgers over Caddilac Williams? Rodgers was heaviliy courted by Gruden. Tampa wouldn't be in the mess we have now.

in 2007: Detroit wanted the Bucs 4th overall pick, and both 2nd rounders for the 2nd pick overall to get Calvin Johnson.

If the Vikings didn't come back to beat the Giants in the 1997 WC Game, Dennis Green was going to be fired.

If he is, does the successor (possibly Brian Billick) still draft Moss, and if he doesn't, who does?

What if he falls to Denver with the 32nd pick?

WHAT IF in 1999, Mike Jones doesn't tackle Kevin Dyson 1 yard short?

WHAT IF Trent Green doesn't get hurt, and Kurt Warner doesn't get to play? Do the Rams have the same success?

here's a very recent one.

What if either of these situations went Philly's way?

To those that didn't click, Philly decided not to trade a 2nd rounder to SF for Kaepernick because they wanted to use their 3rd round pick on Russell Wilson, whom Seattle took before them.
