That's a big one, for sure. 

For me, it's "what if" Franco and Rocky had been able to play in the '76 AFC Championship game. I believe the Steelers would've 3-peated had they been healthy.

What if Tomlin was actually a disciplinarian and prevented at least two "Franchise Players" behave only as they saw fit.

Sadly, this is legit.  Pi_cry

What if the guy we chose OVER Marino - Gabriel Rivera, didn't get into a drunk driving accident? Noll saw something in Senior Sack; At the time, Rivera was starting to come into his own. We know what happened with Marino (and the fact that Dilfer has a ring and Marino doesn't - hell, Bubby Brister has 2 rings....)....but "What If" with Rivera?

Oh, no doubt. Tough break. I’ve watched the Colts play off game several times the last couple of weeks. IMO, the Colts were better that year than  the Raiders, probably the second best team in football that year. The Steeler discharged them quite handily.

What if Art Rooney decided to keep the Steelers in the NFC?

What if Bill Cowher got his way and selected Shawn Andrews over Big Ben in the 2004 draft?

What if the Steelers had lost the coin toss in 1970 to the Bears? The Bears were going to select Terry Bradshaw, had they won the toss.

Both teams finished the previous season at 1-13 and back then a coin toss was the tie breaker.

Well Joe Paterno might've taken it but I wonder that since Paterno in fact declined the job did the Steelers have a 3rd option?
