Let's see...

Leftwich won't have a breakout year considering he's not even signed ... and besides, Brunnell is the starter this year, Leftwich's best days are in the future.

Manning can have a great year, but he is a perennial Pro Bowler ... how does he EVER get categorized as a sleeper? Good grief.

Bettis and George are old, slow, and worn-down and there is nothing you can do to get back from that. Famous Amos will steal the show in Steeltown while George will have a decent, but not great year at Tennessee. George has definitely lost a step and is nothing more than mediocre right now. The fact that these two are physical, abusive runners are has ultimately led to their downfall. When runners dish off as much punishment as they receive, their lifespan as an elite player is significantly shorter.
