Solid picks

PATRICK MANNELLY – 6 out of 10

On a Soldier Field Sunday, there aren't too many Mannelly jerseys floating around the stands. Hopefully that will change this season, which will be his record-setting 16th year with the Bears. Mannelly is a great example of surprise reliability gained over a career. Even after the Super Bowl, no Bears fan outside the Mannelly family would think of buying a Mannelly jersey. He was "just the long snapper" then. Now? He's the franchise's all-time leader in games played.
