Paul Gascoigne (English soccer player, and by perfect health I mean not only him not suffering the terrible knee injury in 1991 but also getting ahold of his mental health issues and general fitness with his weight).

My favorite player Don Mattingly. If only his back hadn't gone out so early in his career.

Every single one of these is awesome, especially Mattingly, who was well on his way to the HOF. I wonder if Jordan would have been better if he didn’t break his foot his second year, it could’ve made the championship clock start ticking earlier. And being from his hometown, I would LOVE to have seen Bobby Valentine’s career stats if he hadn’t gotten the compound fracture of his lower leg in ‘72 when he was hitting .360 for the Angels. If Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t missed what amounts to be a full season of games, he’d probably be 40HR closer to Bonds with another ten quality years to make a run.

Lindros was a dick.  But he didn’t deserve the beatings he took.

The previously mentioned Terrell Davis was my first thought. If Matt Lepsis hadn't fallen on his knee in 1999... well, Brian Griese would've still stunk the team up until 2003.

In baseball, I would've liked to have seen Jason Kendall injury free. He didn't turn out to be anything special, but he seemed to have a decent career going until 1999. I can't recall the exact details, but he had a nasty foot injury, circa July 1999, and wasn't exactly the same, afterwards.

From a personal, selfish, standpoint, I wish the Yankees' much-hyped Brien Taylor hadn't been injured in a fight. Had a buncha' his baseball cards, circa 1992. I mean, I could've (maybe) made about 3 bucks off of them, if all had turned out well!

Mickey Mantle. It would have helped if he had laid off the sauce & had taken better care of himself.

I'm a Broncos fan but Terrell Davis seems like he had almost the typical RB career at this point.  This guys just don't last, and especially now it's barely a position that warrants attention.  It was still kinda important when Davis played, but it was fading.  It's hard to name a RB in this thread just because they all seem so replaceable and have such short careers the last 20 years.  If Davis hadn't retired young, he would be more the exception to the rule.  Basically 2 monster seasons and 1 very good one will get you into the HOF at some positions in the NFL now.

And with the way the Yankees over-hyped draft picks back then, I'm willing to bet that a 100% healthy Brien Taylor had a career no better than Scott Kamieniecki.  Their scouting was a joke back then.

I'm a Bronco fan, yet I don't think Davis is Hall of Fame worthy---at all. Had he been healthy from '99 on, I'm guessing he would've been been worthy. And, on a minor note, his fun "symptoms of a migraine" downtown mural on 15th and California might've lasted longer. As it was, he brought some consistency to the RB position in Denver (after going through the Bobby Humphrey/Gaston Green/Rob Bernstine/Leonard Russell
I agree about RBs not lasting. I still think they had some major value in TD's career, though (1995-2001). There were signs, earlier, but I think around 2003 is when the "franchise RB" began to fade away. A guy who would put up at least 1,000 yards a year and score about 10+ TDs. I think Frank Gore may end up being the last of this breed.

Brien Taylor < Scott Kamienieck is probably accurate. When I first got into baseball cards in late '89, one of the first "rules" I read somewhere was: "ignore all young NY pitchers, like Al Leiter". Ironically, Leiter went on to have a decent career, after stinking it up, early on.
