A: QUARTERBACKS Idaho Kid's best thing going here, but team's marketing department gives each fan entering stadium pack of trading cards--complete with pic of Billy Joe Tolliver. B: RUNNING BACKS Like the return of Eliot Ness, Marion Butts is back and beating on the bad guys. There's still one Unsolved Mystery: Why are the Chargers hiding Eric Bieniemy? A: RECEIVERS Anthony Miller gets head start on Brian Davis and is caught from behind.

U: RUNNING BACKS Ronnie Harmon puts Chargers on Monday Night Football next year almost as often as Murphy Brown. Bobby Beathard trades Eric Moten, drafts Marshall Faulk. P: RECEIVERS Shawn Jefferson appears on box of Wheaties catching the football.

D: QUARTERBACKS The brass passed on Dan McGwire in the draft, and now he's passed John Friesz in NFL career victories with one. Shoot fire, by this time Billy Joe Tolliver had two wins. B: RUNNING BACKS Rod Bernstine lost a bet with Q106 deejays and has to suit up in McDonald's uniform and work the drive-thru window. Don't suppose Alex Spanos will be by for a Happy Meal. F: RECEIVERS The way he's been playing, Anthony Miller ought to catch the next plane out of town. Only problem: He'd miss it.
