CHICAGO (MainStreet) -- As football playoff fever continues this weekend, most eyes will be on the players. But it's those headset-wearing guys on the sidelines who are just as much the key to a win.

The "teams" who work in suburban office parks and small manufacturing firms don't get the multimillion-dollar salaries, public adulation or chance at a Super Bowl ring. So how can you expect them to turn in superstar performances?
