Also continuing the rotation of pictures of possible Cardinals Quarterbacks in 2011, here is a picture of Joey Porter leapfrogging Matt Hasselbeck.

Arizona Diamondbacks fall to San Diego Padres in 11 innings
It would be hard to make the case that the Diamondbacks deserved to win on Friday night, not in a game in which they committed costly errors, failed to come with key hits and issued 10 walks, the last of which was of the walkoff variety, sending them to a 4-3 loss to the San Diego Padres. But the optimists out there, however, at least could identify at least a couple of positives. On this night, manager Kirk Gibson was not an optimist.

What if one or two plays last season had gone differently? How would those snaps affect the drama of last weekend, when the Falcons and Browns engineered a blockbuster trade while the Titans pulled off the Jake Shocker? What are the plays and games that altered the draft to the point that it would've shaken up the whole kit and kaboodle?
