I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but I have never heard it before. I was just watching a piece from NFL films about Ernie Accorsi, the GM of the Giants and used to be of the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts. Accorsi is the GM that drafted John Elway even though Elway said he would never go play there. A couple of days before the draft Accorsi received a telephone call from Chuck Sullivan offering John Hannah and a first round draft pick for Elway. I was surprised when I heard that. What would have become of the Patriots organization if that trade had gone through? They had some pretty good teams mid to late 80's, with a HOF QB would they have won a Super Bowl in that time frame? Would Elway have come here? There would have been no Bledsoe. Maybe no 1-15 and 2-14 seasons, which means Parcell probably never would have ended up here, and in turn no Belichick.
