Muhammad emerged as the Bears’ leading receiver for the second consecutive season in 2006 [5]. He amassed over 860 yards, including three games where he caught for over 100 yards. Additionally, his catching ability and ball handling skills were almost unmatched on the team; Muhammad caught several poorly thrown passes that would have been likely intercepted at the hands of other Bears’ receivers. Additionally, he has been an strong supporter of Rex Grossman, who was criticized by skeptics because of inconsistent play [6]. However, Muhammad’s age has seemingly played an effect on his endurance. Although he played all sixteen games, Muhammad was often listed as probable or questionable days prior to many games. [7]. Before the start of the 2006 season, he revealed that he had played through the 2005 season with a broken hand. [8]
