While it is tough to assume the Chargers would top the Colts in the AFC Championship game, the team did top a similar Colts team in the 2007 AFC Divisional round and were by far a more talented team. After beating the Colts, the Chargers would play the Rex Grossman-led Bears in Super Bowl XLI. Again, it is tough to assume the Chargers beat the Chicago Bears, but I didn’t write this article just to have them lose in heartbreaking fashion again. After demolishing the Chicago Bears, the Chargers bring the Lombardi trophy home to the city of San Diego for the first time in team history.
I believe that if any one of those things hadn’t happened, the Titans would have gone on to win the Super Bowl, but for some reason it has always been the non-delay of game call that has hurt the most.
Congratulations, you have the power to change the outcome of any one play in NFL history.
Brady and Delhomme are a pair of young quarterbacks who starred in NFL Europe and are sought-after free agent passers along with Jake Plummer. Delhomme joins the Panthers, Plummer joins the Broncos, and the Cowboys get Brady, reuniting the former Jets draft pick with new Dallas head coach Bill Parcells.
It’s a situation that works out great for all parties. Brady easily beats out Quincy Carter and Chad Hutchinson for the starting role, and — with the help of a great defense — lifts Dallas to the best record in the NFL and its first Super Bowl win since Barry Switzer was coach.
Brady has arrived.
Shazier said he’s been surprising doctors with his progress throughout the rehab process. His goal for now is to be able to walk by himself without the support of a cane.
He also said that he’s not afraid of suffering another injury if he eventually returns to the field, but added that he’ll have to play safer and keep his head up.
The Steelers have converted $8.26M of LB Ryan Shazier’s 2018 base salary into a signing bonus, per source. Shazier, placed on PUP Wednesday, earns that money now. While there are no cap implications, it’s a great gesture by a first rate organization.
