    What if the Cowboys drafted Antonio Cromartie?

    (Yep, here I go with another completely irrelevant Cowboys-Chargers rambling. Hey, we'll focus on reality after kickoff.)

    Just imagine these Cowboys if they drafted Pro Bowl CB Antonio Cromartie instead of backup LB Bobby Carpenter.

    They just might be the defending Super Bowl champion Cowboys. Eli Manning wouldn't have been able to pick on Jacques Reeves during the 40-second-drill TD drive just before halftime in the playoff game with Cromartie on the roster.

    The roster would definitely have a different look. Would Adam "Pacman" Jones be wearing a star on his helmet if the Cowboys had Cromartie? Probably, just because Jerry can't pass up a low-risk/high-reward move that shines the spotlight on Dallas. But the Cowboys certainly wouldn't have spent a first-round pick on Mike Jenkins. Perhaps they would have traded down with that second first-rounder and snagged a WR (James Hardy?) in the early second round.

    It's worth noting that if Wade Phillips had been the head coach instead of Bill Parcells, Cromartie probably would have been a Cowboy.

    If the Cowboys had drafted Cromartie there wouldn't be a day that passed that you wouldn't see him on ESPN, the whole bunch of them has Cowboy Nation's balls in their mouths.

    Adam Jones for instance, is THEE MOST OVERRATED PLAYER IN ALL OF SPORTS! The guy has physical talent ok, but he's never had an astronomical season, and he's just coming off missing an entire year of football......YET ESPN talks about him like he's ready to be the next Deion Sanders!

    If Cromartie is a Cowboy we listen to a 24/7 spooge fest by ESPN analysts who study this guy, as a Chargers he's...........just another CB with tons of potential.

    I wouldn't. The dollar-to-Euro exchange rate alone makes you have almost half the buying power than in the US.

    I'd move to a country that had a more favorable rate, like Canada or Mexico.

    What if Ryan Leaf lived up to his hype?

    What if Gilbrid actually was a coach?

    What if Riley had a spine?

    ...Or if Indy had selected Leaf instead.

    ...What if Jerry Jones had owned the Chargers instead of Gene Klein back in the Coryell, pre-cap era. How many SBs might they have won.?

    Yeah, I hate this "what if" crap too :no:

    What if it was 55 and sunny instead of freezing that day in Cinncinati?
    What if Dennis Gibson hadn't been picked up?
    What if Bobby Ross kept his job and Beathard got the boot?
    What if we traded those three #1s and got John Elway?

    There's way too many variables and too much difficulty. And I love alternate history and its a fun experiment even in football, its just taken to such shallow and retarded levels by opposing fans (e.g. Cowboys drafting Cromartie = Super Bowl)
