To think, they could have chosen Fitzgerald over Rivers, kept Breese and had LT in his prime and they just blew up everything never coming close to their 14 and 2 season since.
Brees didn't break out until after Rivers was drafted. The guy was actually regressing when they took Rivers.
......or they could have Kept Eli. he probably would have held out. Brees would have broke out regardless..... Eli would have been traded, instead of Brees, to the Saints (hold out leaves bad taste to the organization)..... Saints don't win the superbowl in 2010....... Rivers stinks it up with the Giants, are non factors in '06--'11--present, Coughlin gets fired.
....................and the niners would have won the NFC championship last year against the Packers and beat the Patriots in the Superbowl.
