With the news that Buffalo are on the brink of releasing QB/Everclear stage-diver Drew Bledsoe, , here’s a question to ponder : how would recent NFL history have been changed had Bledsoe not suffered a sheared blood vessel in his chest, from a brutal Mo Lewis hit during the 2nd game of the 2002 season? Would New England have won 1 Super Bowl, let alone 3? Would they have even managed a playoff appearance during that time?

This is a sad result for a man who was once the highest paid athlete in Boston sports history. Bledsoe, a two-time AFC Champ, might be reunited with Bill Parcells in Dallas.
