2) Right call on Jones. I don't trust him until I see results.

3) By the same token, I don't like the idea of Manning setting up in the pocket and looking downfield until he proves himself against a strong pass-rushing team. I remember too clearly how he threw three picks against the Panthers in last year's playoffs, and the Colts' rush will be just as formidable with their two great ends.

4) I don't know how you pick Brown when he has no history with McNabb. I don't care if McNabb ends up throwing for 320 yards--125 could go to Greg Lewis, 90 to L.J. Smith and another 75 to Brian Westbrook. Plus there's the Donte' Stallworth wild card. Brown might catch one ball.

5) Always, always, always play Palmer's receivers. I don't care if the Bengals are facing the '76 Steelers. Until Palmer shows you he can't play, roll with him. Moral of the story: Go with the guys who are going to get a lot of balls thrown to them, and don't waffle with the wind. Play the guys with the track records. In this case, that's Driver and Houshmandzadeh.
