decide which offense and which defe (9th Sep 19 at 8:44am UTC)
When it comes to the best draft classes of the past quarter century Will Harris Jersey , the 2004 NFL Draft is certainly up there. It seems that only the 2001, 2007 and 1996 draft classes can even be talked about in the same breath, and there are a lot of notable players that are still in the league today. There are also some guys that appear to be heading to Canton when their careers are over.The 2004 NFL Draft was also filled with a lot of drama at the top when Eli Manning was able to get a trade to New York after being selected first overall by San Diego while Philip Rivers was shipped from New York to San Diego. If all of the teams knew what they know now, what would have changed in that draft? Would Rivers or Manning even go first overall to San Diego? And where would guys like Sean Taylor, Jared Allen and Steven Jackson end up?It’s time to take a look back at each of the draft positions and see what players could have ended up with different teams as we re-draft the legendary 2004 NFL Draft. Anyone who says “tails never fails” should always remember the case of Matthew Slater.The Patriots special-teams captain believes in calling heads when it’s time to toss a coin. It paid off last Sunday in overtime against the Chiefs. It also paid off two years ago, in overtime against the Falcons.In both games , the Patriots opted to receive the opening kickoff to overtime, took the ball down the field, scored a touchdown, and won the game.Via Mike Reiss of, Slater picked up the habit from his father, Hall of Famer Jackie Slater.“Anyone who knows my family knows faith is important to us Rashan Gary Jersey , and said, ‘God’s the head of my life, so I call heads.’ I’ve just kind of embraced it,” the younger Slater said, according to Reiss.It has worked in two of the biggest coin tosses the league has seen, laying the foundation for the Patriots to walk off as NFL champions two years ago and AFC champions last weekend. Next Sunday , with the Patriots the visitors in Super Bowl LIII, Slater’s inevitable call of heads will determine which team controls the receive-or-defer decision that will decide which offense and which defense takes the field start the game.And who knows? Maybe he’ll be back in the middle of the field 60 football minutes later to try to run his streak of coin-toss victories in a huge spot to three.
