    What if Gary Anderson makes that FG in '98?

    What if ... Gary Anderson makes that field goal in the 1998 NFC Championship Game?

    We win the World Championship!

    Randy Moss never leaves. We probably make a similar run as we did in 2000, but we probably go through similar failings in 2001-2004.

    Moss is too big of a hero to trade at that point though, so that never happens.

    That is stii one of my biggest heartbreaks, along with Darrin Nelson dropping TD pass from Wade Wilson in NFC Championship game against Redskins in 87.

    After seeing that photo it looks like there should have been a roughing the kicker penalty.
    None

    If he makes the FG the refs simply throw a false start or holding penalty at Steussie and we end up screwed anyway.

    there are no what ifs.

    I will say that the better team lost that football game.
    just like the better team lost the NFC championship in 09.
    but thats sports, thats why they don't just hand out the trophy to the best team in August.

    thats also why "there's always next year" is the most frequently used phrase in sports.

    We have a ten point lead with 2:07 left in the 4th quarter.

    why do we always insist on reliving this shit?

    We lost, plain and simple. Anderson wasn't even the reason we lost. This thread should be called:

    "What if Denny Green didn't call a knee to end regulation?"
    or
    "What if Moss didn't drop that TD?"
    or
    "What if our D could actually prevent the falcons from scoring not only once, but twice?"
    or
    "What if we were never in the situation where the game was so close to begin with?"

    Kicker missing a FG while AHEAD did not cost us the game, combination of all of the above cost us the game.

    No one said it cost us the game.

    "What if Mike Lynn doesn't trade the farm for Herschel Walker?" is a much more intriguing question.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
