What's in store for Matt and Vince? Who will win tonight? Who will be driving a new Hummer in a few days? Who will be an SI cover boy? Who will be on Survivor years from now?

The really big question: Who's going to be hot in the NF and L? Tonight's game means nothing. (Vince, by the way, will go, whether it's this year or next.) It's in the stars. So let's check 'em.

What? Both Leinart and Young are . . . can't be: Taurus. Yep. Both born in May. Both born in 1983.

So how have the Bulls done in the bigs? Checking the charts: It's a mixed message. Johnny U was a Taurus . . . but so was . . . The Temperamental Taurus himself, Ryan Leaf. Ken Dorsey was a Big Boy Bull at Miami. Now he's just a little steer at San Fran. Art Schlichter, expressing the best of Taurusism, couldn't give up gambling. He's in the Big Corral doing time, according to Wikipedia.

What have the stars said in the past? A few readings.

Capricorn QBs include Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Jim Everett and Bart Starr . . . and perhaps future stars Carson Palmer and Byron Leftwich . . . and once party boy Kerry Collins.

Jim Kelly, Fran Tarkenton, Bob Griese and Drew Bledsoe were born under Aquarius. Norm Van Brocklin, Ben Roethlisberger and Sammy Baugh are Pisces.

Aries embraces Boomer Esiason and Peyton Manning. Gemini boasts Broadway Joe Namath, Joe Montana and Dan Fouts. Cancer is the sign for Michael Vick and John Elway . . . and remember . . . Todd Marinovich? (Where is he anyhow?).

Leo produced the Super Duds Tim Couch and Akili Smith. But Leo also gave the Rams Roman Gabriel. Virgo claims Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, George Blanda and Sonny Jurgensen.

Libra is proud of Brett Favre and Steve Young. But Libra gave to the world Quincy Who-Knows-What-He-Did-to-Get-Booted Carter. The Scorpios: Troy Aikman, Vinny Testaverde and Y.A. Tittle.

Donovan McNabb, Jim Plunkett, Otto Graham, Bobby Layne and Jake "The Snake" Plummer are Sagittarius.
