Okay, maybe we're being a little overdramatic here. Maybe. But when starting WR Plaxico Burress realized he was tired of being really good and shot himself in the leg while "rehabbing" at a nightclub, the NFL landscape was changed forever. Down goes the player that caught the Super Bowl winning TD a year ago, in comes an untested 2nd year player - Domenik Hixon, Giants lose their first playoff game, Cards represent the NFC, Kurt Warner is relevant again and forced to play another two years, in need of comic relief Sarah Palin courageously steps in and informs everyone she can see Russia from her house, and Steelers win another Super Bowl. If Burress wasn't an idiot, none of this may have happened (except the Palin-Russia thing, of course). And Hixon's page would be shorter than Frodo Baggins.
