Bright future in the Big Apple

Everyone knows the accomplishments of his father, Archie, and big brother, Peyton. Now, it appears as if Eli Manning’s time to shine in the NFL spotlight has arrived, and he has Giants fans believing the future is now.

Seattle’s scoring machine

God, family and football are the first loves of Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander, who has become one of the NFL’s most productive and consistent runners.

Working from the bottom up

Practice-squad players may toil in obscurity, but they play a key role for their teams, all the while trying to earn their way on to a 53-man roster.

Expect the unexpected

That would have been wise advice heading into the 2005 fantasy season. We take a look at the most surprising developments.
