Instead, that Atlanta Falcons team turned out to be one of the worst seasons in team history and not only because of what happened on the field but off of it too.
Michael Vick went through his issues with the dogfighting scandal and head coach Bobby Petrino practically quit 13 games into the season by leaving a note.
What if none of those events took place? What if the Falcons came into the season with a healthy, trouble-free Vick with a head coach like Petrino?
Petrino wasn’t hired for no reason. He was one of the more successful college football coaches at that time with an innovative offense that would have made Mike look like the best QB in the NFL.
