Being In The Right Place At The Right Time

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IAugust 10, 2008

What would the NFL be like if the superstars like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre (above), and others hadn't been in the right place at the right time? If Dan Majkowski hadn't gone down against the Bengals, would Brett Favre be a future Hall of Famer? If Peyton Manning hadn't stayed for his senior year, would he be the star that he is today? If the choice to replace Drew Bledsoe with Tom Brady hadn't been made, would the Patriots have three Super Bowl rings?

Furthermore, how many future NFL stars never got to be stars because of an injury or some other thing? For an example, Cooper Manning, older brother to Peyton and Eli, has been called the best athlete of the three but his football career ended after he suffered a spinal condition. Its all about being at the right place at the right time.
