The 1984 Baltimore Colts

Ok I'll admit I rarely thought about this title when I ask what IF.

So what if the Baltimore Colts were not stolen by that drunk bastard and stayed in Baltimore for the 1984 season and beyond?

Well here is what I would like to think would have happened.

The Baltimore Colts had two first round draft choices in 1984. The 1984 draft was weakened by the USFL signing Mike Rozier, Steve Young, Herschel Walkers, and Reggie White. NFL owners being the cheap bastards they are, were more worried about drafting players that were easier to sign.

So the Baltimore Colts had the 8th pick and 19th pick in the first round. If the Baltimore Colts drafted CB Leonard Coleman, fine, he would have been a bust. He signed with the USFL since the drunk bastard was too cheap. But with the 19th pick they should have taken Maryland QB, Boomer Esiason who was drafted by the Bengals in the second round, pick #38. Esiason had first round talent but dropped because what NFL owners thought he could cost a lot to sign. Esiason's idol as a kid? None other than Bert Jones of the Baltimore Colts.

So if the Baltimore Colts drafted Boomer they would have solved their QB problems. Boomer would lead the Benglas to the Super Bowl and was one of the best QB in the NFL.

Mike Pagel was decent. Mark Herrmann was nothing. Art Schlichter wasn't a good gamble. :) Pagel and Herrmann split time in 1983. Schlichter was suspeded for gambling durin ghte 1983 season. But he was allowed to play in 1984. But would be cut in 1985.

So with the Baltimore Colts drafting Boomer Esiason they would have continued their rebuilding project. Oh the possibilities.

That Crybaby QB

I hate with a passion, John Elway. That will be the last time I write his name. From now, on he will be refered to as that Crybaby QB or Crybaby or Jerk Crybaby. But before I go on, I would like to say, I would never wish upon anybody the things that have happened to him since he retired. Ok, ok, I do wish it upon those scumbag terrorists.

Why do I call him a crybaby? Well he cried after Cal pulled off the greatest play in college football history. He cried his way to the Broncos. He cried his way to a new head coach for the Broncos.

First I'll start by admitting something. When that crybaby jerk, was at Stanford, I thought he was awesome. He did some amazing things. I liked Jim Kelly of Miami a little better because he beat Penn St and Notre Dame but I thought that crybaby was great. Kelly would get injuried his senior year and because of that drop down in the draft. Dan Marino was up there too but he had a terrible senior year.

So let's move aheard to the 1983 NFL draft. This jerk crybaby said he wouldn't play in Baltimore. The jerk would play baseball if the Baltimore Colts drafted him. Later he would go back on his word and say he really meant he didn't want to play for Frank Kush or that drunk, bastard as his owner. Which is just BS. He was really scared to be follow in the footsteps of Bert Jones and the Greatest QB ever, Johnny Unitas. I can understand him not wanting to play for a drunk, bastard owner. But there are many cases where players play for an owner they don't like.

I also hate the Green Bay Packers as they allowed that jerk to win a Super Bowl. Mike Homgren is a moron.

This little known fact; LA Times columnist, T J Simers is really that crybabies father. Just look at Mr. Positive, Simers rips everybody but one person. That person? That crybaby son of his.
