what if the Detroit lions through good drafting and having the right individuals go to super bowl 25 in 1991 defeating the bills which will start a football dynasty of the 1990 and it all started when they traded andre ware for warren moon from oilers and they drafted bo jackson in 1987 and they also let him play with the Detroit tigers so he is playing football Detroit lions and playing baseball with Detroit tigers and in 1989 the detroit lions drafted deion sanders as the 5th overall pick barry sanders will be on this football dynasty he will stil be a detroit lion

I don't think trading Ware for Warren Moon is realistic, and in all honesty I'd rather have Barry Sanders than Bo Jackson and Deion.

The problem the Lions have is that the 1990s were a terrible time to try and draft a quarterback. The cupboard was just barren - not a single noteworthy talent between Brett Favre and Peyton Manning, with every star QB in the decade besides Favre having been drafted in the 1980s. Rodney Peete was legitimately the second-best QB in the 1989 draft; in 1990 the only viable selections after Ware are Neil O'Donnell and Scott Mitchell, which just puts the team where they were at in the mid-90s; and in 1991 getting Favre means giving up Herman Moore, who's a vital piece for any sort of Detroit Lions success in this decade.

If I'm playing hindsight GM? I'd go after Doug Flutie. He was a very good QB for Buffalo in his late 30s, throwing to Eric Moulds and a washed-up Andre Reed. Imagine what he could do in his prime with all the weapons Detroit managed to assemble. Even better, IMO he'd be a good fit for Detroit's run and shoot offense - he has the mobility and the constant bootlegs mitigate the problems associated with his short height.

BTW… one of the first things you really need to do is get a different owner, One that actually expects them to win would be good.
But just about anyone would be better then the Fords. Say Donald Duck or Goofy.
