The team's two top running backs - Lee Suggs and Reuben Droughns - will challenge each other for carries and give each other much-needed breathers, especially against rivals in the slog-it-out AFC North. And at quarterback? Trent Dilfer has been a model of mediocrity his entire career, and this year should be no different. But after last season's subpar, four-win season, mediocrity would be an improvement.
