ENEMY LINES: AN OPPOSING SCOUT'S VIEW
Kerry Collins will be a more effective quarterback simply because he has more weapons around him. He has plenty of arm strength, but his problem is that he doesn't always make the right read.... Having a player like Randy Moss helps any quarterback. We're all hoping he'll still be the kind of player who will quit on his team and be a headache in the locker room, but in a place like Oakland, he'll probably fit right in. Jerry Porter is a freak. He'll run right through press coverage.... Warren Sapp has more left in his tank than people think, but it won't matter if he's still in the 3-4. He looks heavier and stiffer than he's ever been, and that's a sign of age. Of all the guys on the defensive line Derrick Burgess looks the most impressive. He has enough quickness to be a pretty effective pass rusher when they use the 4-3.... Charles Woodson has never really lived up to the hype he had coming out of college. He'll play hard in certain games and then dog it in others. Plus he's always had the skills to be a ball hawk, but he's never been a big interception guy. That said, he's still so athletic that any defense would love to get him in its secondary.
