Default Big Ben Almost Went To The Giants

In the 2004 draft Ben Roethlisberger almost went to the Giants. San Diego actually drafted Manning, the Giants drafted Rivers, the Giants wanted Manning, if they could not swing a trade for Manning they were going to draft Ben. As it turned out Rivers went to San Diego and Manning went to the Giants, and Ben went to the Steelers.

Imagine if it had not worked out that way.

There are endless "what ifs" one could conjure up Wolfie.

Pittsburgh was able to draft Bradshaw in the 1970 NFL draft because they won the coin flip against da Bears for the first pick...imagine if the coin flipped the other way.

Pittsburgh almost cut Johnny Unitas...imagine if they did.

Imagine if Art Modell didn't fire Paul Brown...there would be no bengals, therefore no bengals message board, therefore guys like neek and Asmith would have meaningless lives.

Imagine there's no heaven Wolfie. It's easy if you try..no hell below us, above us only sky.
Imagine all the people living for today. Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too.
Imagine all the people living life in peace.

You, you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

I hope some day you'll join us Wolfie, and the world will be as one.

Johnny Unitas never played for the Steelers, also this trade came down at the last minutes. The Steelers could have ended up with Rivers.

it's always seemed to me that it doesn't really matter who joins the steelers, every man either rises to the occasion or doesn't last.

ben would flourish anywhere. you can't teach what that idiot does.

There have been people saying that Ben is not a pocket passer, I think he has proven that he is as dangerous in the pocket as he is out of the pocket

He never played a game but was a member of the Steelers. Unfortunately Keisling hated him.

Right, he was drafted by the Steelers in 1955 but never played for them.

I wonder how Ben would have fared with the Giants and Manning with San Diego, and would the Steelers have gone after Rivers?
