When a team trades away a future No. 1 draft pick to select a quarterback, the question isn't whether or not he becomes the starter but when?

There's no question coach Brian Billick thinks he has finally found the quarterback to build his offense around in rookie Kyle Boller. The only problem is that Chris Redman is looking dramatically better in practice than he was a year ago, and even third stringer Anthony Wright is turning some heads. A bigger question might be who will catch the ball. Last season, it seemed like their wide receivers dropped more passes than they caught.

The defense discovered a lot of young players who could play last season. With Ray Lewis stepping back onto the field and holes filled at cornerback and safety, the unit is ready to resume its tradition as being among the league's best.
