With the preseason behind us and the real season getting ready to start what is your biggest concern for your team?

Chiefs

QB - The running game has looked great in preseason, and the D has surprisingly looked solid for the most part, but Cassel has looked downright awful at times.

Seahawks - Protecting the QB. Okung is out for probably a couple weeks and looked great when he was playing so it looks like John Carlson will be playing Tight Tackle for the first few weeks this year like he did last season.

The defense has actually looked pretty good so far. They have a bunch of horses on the DL, good linebackers, and in the secondary Tru is healthy and E. Thomas is going to be a top safety in no time.

49ers

Playcalling on both sides of the ball - I don't know if I am more worried about offense or defense here, to be honest. Jimmy Raye's offense consists 90% of runs up the middle and, as good as the offensive line and Frank Gore look to be, if teams know what you are going to do it is easy to stop it. Manusky is almost as bad on defense. Despite having some of the biggest and most physical corners in the league he has played them 10 yards off in a soft zone all preseason and just rushed 4 guys hoping one of them can make a play. We have basically been playing a prevent defense all preseason.

Injuries and the offensive line. McKinnie has looked like a god damn bum, and the rest of the line has looked like ****, too. Percy is an unknown as far as health goes, Rice is out for awhile, who knows if Favre will stay healthy.

Defense, defense, defense.

How long will it take for all the new defensive linemen to mesh? Will the young guys contribute at all this year? Will Derrick Harvey ever show up to a game? Does Aaron Kampman have anything left in the tank?

Will undersized Kirk Morrison and Justin Durant get pushed around in the run game?

Will Derek Cox take the next step forward or will he have a sophomore slump? WTF are we doing at safety?

And most of all, what in the world is David Garrard going to do this year? I expect McCown to be starting by season's end.

Saints - the Linebacking situation. Vilma is dinged up and might not be 100% for the opener, while newly appointed starting WLB Jonathan Casillas sprained his foot in the final pre-season game. The depth behind those guys have looked awful and I'm worried about our ability to stop the run this year.

This. Depth at corner is going to haunt us again.

will we get a pass rush?

How will a secondary with 3 2nd year players (all of whom have suffered from mental lapses) play?

Will Dan Hennig be a competent OC all season.

- Kenny Britt: Was said to show up this offseason out of shape and unprepared. Didn't look great in the preseason as well. We need him to keep defenses honest off of CJ.

- Linebackers: Can Tulloch hold the group together well enough until McRath gets back from suspension?

I think you meant to say will players stop holding out?

Going into the year our top young cornerback prospects, Pat Lee and Brandon Underwood, would both get cut if we had anyone else, and Harris, Bigby, two starters will be on the PUP, so we are starting a 3rd round rookie safety and a UDFA with 1 year of college experience at nickel to open the year.

Dallas:

Jason Garrett's gameplans, come out throwing, throw, throw, & pass the ball some more. Yeah I know they want to showcase top draft pick Dez Bryant who played in 0 preseason games with a high ankle sprain, but whatever happened to the Dallas clock & ball control running game? MB3 has broken new ground in preseason suckage & may be trade bait soon, but that's no excuse when you have a healthy Tashard Choice & Felix Jones + that huge OL.

Winning on the road will be challenging to say the least, games in Lambeau at GB, a return to Minnesota where they were slaughtered in the playoffs, & @ Houston where they had their asses handed to them last weekend -- I realize they didn't want to tip their hand offensively in preseason when they play them so soon, but now Kubiak & the Texans have that psychological stigma planted in their minds. Getting the W vs the Skins on the Sunday night opener on the road will be huge for momentum

Free has yet to own that OLT spot, & Colombo is now the RT.

They continue to make the screen & bubble screens their signature plays but I think every defense in the NFL has figured that out by now.

WR Roy Williams is on the spot for a breakout season after Jerry Jones gave him all that $ -- fail to do it & he's getting the biggest pay cut in franchise history or walking pprs.

Jets

-Mark Sanchez
-Lack of leadership on offense
-Revis' contract
-Offensive line depth- If Brick, Mangold or Moore goes down with an injury, we're in trouble.

With the inexperience of Free and the age of the rest offensive line, Dallas would be smart to run the ball close to 50% of the time. The last thing they need to do is come out in the gun and sling the ball around 50 times a game. Romo is going to get killed.

Less is more with the passing game for Dallas this year. Especially with the pass rushing ability across the board in the NFCE. Gotta keep those d-linemen/linebackers honest with the run game.

Offensive Line: Hasn't looked good at all, is injured and old.

Run defense: We got gashed last year up the middle bc we had no DTs and Osi sucked vs the run.

Is Cutler going to survive the season with that offensive line?
Can the Bears stop teams on 3rd down?

Greg Mattison. His strategy for a good amount of plays is line up in a 34. Rush the front 3. Drop the 4 LBs in zone coverage. It makes my head explode.

Offensive Line, QB Play, and stopping people on 3rd down.

Also, ability to create turnovers.
