    <strong>Saturday, June 10, 2006</strong> | It's quite a story line: The star quarterback and top draft pick, Eli Manning, refuses to play for the Chargers, forcing them to trade him for another quarterback -- Philip Rivers. He's to be the future of the franchise, though not the one the team eyed to begin with. But then he and the team can't agree on a contract right away and starts his career by missing crucial practices.

    In that time, the guy Rivers was supposed to replace -- Drew Brees -- steps in and revitalizes what looks like a moribund career. Now, two years later, thanks to a freak injury at the end of a pointless game last season, Brees is a New Orleans Saint and a talented team's hopes rest on the shoulders of an untested pro.</blockquote>
