The article analyzes the performance of several football players in the run up to Super Bowl. As a rookie, the New York Giants' RB Brandon Jacobs was slow to pick up the offense and wasn't good at reading his blocks. While fellow Denver Broncos rookie CBs Darrent Williams and Domonique Foxworth blossomed in 2005, Karl Paymah was relegated mainly to special teams because his physical style led to too many holding and illegal contact penalties. The Philadelphia Eagles' RB Ryan Moats got a lot of individual attention during the season from offensive assistant Bill Shuey, and that should continue during the offseason program.
