    Training camps have opened, the first preseason game is this weekend (!), and we're all hoping for no injuries.

    Let's talk some football! How's your team looking after the offseason and draft?

    You gotta love John Kitna. "No really guys, this year, 10 wins, I promise."

    As long my team is own by York it will continue to suck regardless of who's on it. Apparently the Yorks are gonna turn the team over to their son eventually. Oh joy.

    Go steelers. Not a bad draft. Should win division again.

    Go Pats. If you've looked at their schedule this season, it's a pretty much no brainer that they're going 19-0 again.

    Well, let's see... we let go of Mike Bell, Rod Smith retired and John Lynch just up and cut ties with the Broncos a few hours ago.

    Yeah, we're off to a rocking start.

    I like where Denver is going. Lynch has lost a step, and although he's great in run support, he wasn't going to be much of a pass defender. Mike Bell hardly played RB last year, and Ryan Torain looks pretty good in camp so far.

    My biggest concern is Brandon Marshall. If he gets suspended, even for 2 or 4 games, that will be a big hit to the offense. Eddie Royal has opened eyes in camps and might wind up playing some slot to get his speed on the field.

    And Jay Cutler is healthy ... no more undiagnosed diabetes. He was still in the top 12 rated QB's last season, and that was with his fatigue and weight loss of 30 lbs because of the disease ... so I'm expecting good things from him this season.

    The Kansas City Chiefs. What can I say?

    It can't be worse than last year. They're moving in the right direction though. Make or break year for Croyle.

    Da Bearsss...

    *sigh*

    Hopefully won't suck. I dunno much about rookie RB Matt Forte who has to step up and replace the axed Benson. Maybe he's good, but there's a loooong list of failed, hyped RBs since Payton and Anderson. Almost as long as the QB list. Speaking of, that's still between Orton and fuckin' Grossman. That ain't gonna end well.

    At least Hester will be fun to watch.

    I'm normally a Dolfan, but I gotta wait and see this year. It's not just that they're bad, but they've lost a bunch of their identity. I'll still be rooting for them I guess. Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams should hopefully play well.

    I expect a better year from the Jags and Bucs. Especially the Jags.

    And I'll be rooting somewhat for the Cowboys, the fathering team of the current Fins.

    This Eagles team will go as far as McNabb will take them. Hopefully we give the Cowboys and Giants a run for the division.
