I always like playing a little game with my buddies we simply dub NFL Alternate Universe. The concept is simple: you go back in time to any point in NFL history and just change one thing, then discuss what you think the ramifications of that one change would've been. Try to bring it as much as you can to the present day. It only seems right that I should probably start the first scenario with the Texans. And I must admit that while I find these fun to do, this one isn't particularly a blast... Scenario: Atlanta never trades Matt Schaub to the Houston Texans. - Vick gets sent to jail, but Atlanta keeps Schaub. - We go into the 2007 draft needing a quarterback badly after the failure of HWNSNBS. Instead of drafting Okoye, the Texans draft QB Brady Quinn. - Texans under Kubiak and Quinn not only fail to make the playoffs, but field one of the NFL's worst offenses. Texans never go 8-8 in '07, 8-8 in '08, and 9-7 in '09. - After four years without a hint of a winning season, Kubiak is fired. - Any number of coaches could be inserted here for the 2010 season, since we had no real idea of who Bob would've been interested in hiring. For sunshine purposes, I say he hires Bill Cowher. - Texans either draft Sam Bradford or Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft. - Meanwhile, Matt Ryan is likely never drafted by Atlanta and goes to Baltimore instead of Flacco. Flacco ends up in Miami instead of Henne. And so it goes. I'll post a few other random scenarios too if this thread gets some mild attention. I'm curious to see what wild scenarios you guys can imagine up.
