New NFL Sports Picks Line Unveiled at Last
Friday, May 11, 2007

It was way back on January 19th when we teased our football faithful with the cryptic tip that "Mini Team Sets" were coming later in the year. After much intrigue, supposition, rumor and innuendo, McFarlane's Sports Picks is proud to unveil our Ultimate Team Sets. The debut for this brand highlights the "first team offense" for a quartet of the NFL's most popular teams: the Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Chicago Bears. Each set features eleven separate figures in a two-inch scale, sculpted to form the starting formation just before the ball is snapped.

The lineups for each team are set to replicate their starters for the upcoming 2007 season. Here's a look at the players in each set:

Chicago Bears:
QB Rex Grossman
RB Cedric Benson & Jason McKie
OL Jon Tait, Ruben Brown, Olin Kreutz, Roberto Garza & Fred Miller
TE Desmond Clark
WR Mushin Muhammad & Bernard Berrian

Denver Broncos:
QB Jay Cutler
RB Mike Bell & Kyle Johnson
