You think preseason games don't mean anything? Try telling that to ferocious Bears linebacker Joe Odom, who separated Rams wideout Dane Looker from the ball during a friendly August get-together in St. Louis.
You want durable? Look no further than the Packers' Brett Favre, who has made 189 consecutive regular-season starts, an NFL record for a QB. In '03 Favre led the league in touchdown throws while playing 12 games with a broken bone in his passing thumb.
Deuce McCallister, the Saints' Pro Bowl back, is among the most punishing runners in the league, but yards are hard to come by against a suffocating Jaguars defense that ranked second in the league against the rush in '03.
