Considering the number of posters I remember screaming for play action prior to the snap, I'm going to doubt the accuracy of that number.



Most will agree it would have been a different game. That is all I will concede as outside a quantum state reality matrix there is no way to prove that the outcome would have significantly favored Broncos or the Steelers.



Considering the fact that their starting safety also would have been crowding the box instead of playing the pass on that snap.....not so much.



Try one draft spot. Pittsburg got 24 and we had 25, which we later traded. And I will take Play-off Wins over draft position any day of the week.
any QB including TEBOW completes that pass Shirley you jest.. While I really like Tebow his passing is at best, at very best limited..

as for the play action commentary I do not get involved in game day threads.. But I also suspect they in their wildest dreams did not envision what happened..

I doubt seriously that the safety would have been crowding the box, even had he been had much better instincts and recovery than the replacement..

NO we would have drafted in the high teens IIRC 13-20 as we were tired with loads of folks at 8-8

we would have been in this grouping somewhere depending on tie breakers as well as coin flips..
