O'Neals

Shaquille's extended absence (left knee) has been wrecking the Heat's championship high. ( Miami was 14--19 at week's end.) In Indiana, Jermaine O'Neal (left) is popping off--dissing his Pacers teammates for not trying hard enough and saying that it may be time he and the team "go our separate ways."

Ross Verba

Sit out all of 2005 after bolting the Browns. Ouch. Start season as a guard for the lousy Lions. Ouch. Go on injured reserve with a groin injury after playing seven games. Ouch! Spend a night in jail for passing bad checks to a Las Vegas casino. Now that's gotta hurt.

Aaron Brooks

Just squirm, baby. Raider QB's awful season (three TDs, eight picks) spells doom. Question for Brady Quinn and JaMarcus Russell: Can one of you start next week?

Big Unit

One New York City tabloid declared GOOD RIDDANCE when irascible 6'10" Randy Johnson (left) got shipped back to the D-Backs after his 5.00 ERA with the Yankees last season. Johnson is headed home--and south in the standings: The Yanks won 97 games last year, Arizona only 76.
