PFW Online: Vol. 19, Issue 27

Published: 2005-01-10
Cover Date: January 17, 2005
This is the issue for divisional playoff previews and wild-card game coverage.

Ground attack

The Falcons boasted the NFL’s topranked rushing offense in 2004. Much of the success is due to the abilities of T.J. Duckett, Michael Vick and Warrick Dunn — also known as “DVD” to some. But don’t underestimate the importance of the offensive linemen and their position coach, Alex Gibbs.

Offense, defense and special teams

New England’s Troy Brown can do it all. Not only has he contributed in his usual role as a wideout and return specialist, but he has seen extended time at cornerback.

Experience matters

We take a look at the NFL head coaches who are former players. How does that experience help them now that they patrol the sidelines calling the shots?

Looking ahead

Check out an early version of the best fantasy football draft board in the business. After an incredible 2004 season, Peyton Manning debuts in the No. 1 spot.
