Steve Young, "I decided to retire because I didn't want to go play for Denver."

Don't know if anyone caught that on NFL Live yesterday. I actually forgot that he had received permission from the 49ers to speak to the Broncos and was meeting with Mike Shanahan in Denver. Had Young joined Denver it would have been for the 2000 season, imagine... Steve Young in a Broncos #8 jersey, handing off to Terrell Davis, scrambling and tossing the ball to Rod Smith and Ed McCaffrey.

Denver ended up going 11-5 that season, finishing 2nd in the AFC West (one game behind the 12-4 Oakland Raiders) and losing in the first round of the playoffs to the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

Ah, what if...

Is it Sunday yet?
