> The first
quarterback to lose his job will be the Bears' Rex Grossman, who will not start
more than four games. Neither will running back Cedric Benson. Brian Griese has
outperformed Grossman in camp, and in the locker room the Bears support Thomas
Jones over Benson.
> New Lions
quarterback Jon Kitna will throw 20 touchdown passes. Twelve of those will go
to wideout Roy Williams.
rookie quarterback Vince Young will have more rushing touchdowns than passing
touchdowns, but he'll have even more interceptions. And he'll start more games
than fellow rookie signal-callers Matt Leinart and Jay Cutler, who will combine
for a big fat zero.
Patriots will have a 4,000-yard passer ( Tom Brady) but no 1,000-yard
> By the end
of the season Drew Carter, Tim Carter, Doug Gabriel, Greg Jennings, Wali Lundy,
Jerious Norwood, LaBrandon Toefield and Michael Turner will be on a fantasy
roster in your league.
> The biggest
draft bust will be Portis, in a close call over James.
> The fantasy
MVP will be Larry Johnson, who will prove that he can run for an entire season
the way he ran for the last nine games of 2005. Take a bow, all you LJ
> And one
last prediction: DeShaun Foster, bless his heart, will get hurt.
