    (July 12, 2006) -- Coaches are on vacation, veterans are resting up for the long grind of training camp and rookies are getting their contracts done. So until teams reconvene in a few weeks, there's not much to do but test your memory of the 2005 season with quiz No. 2.
    The goal of this short test is to remind you of how things really finished up last year and just maybe get you to scratch your head when you read the answer key. As always, feel free to email me at and we can discuss the test results. It was great to see close to a thousand readers email me after quiz No. 1.
    The first test was a true/false event, so today we move on to the multiple-choice questions. And remember, all the questions are about the 2005 season.
