This year is a big year for you guys. I think the Bucs will be your only thread for the division title. Is Spoon starting for you in the middle now?

We signed Lofa Tatupu who was out of football last year. I expect a decent season from him. We also have last years third round pick Akeem Dent to help out at that spot. Sean Weatherspoon will stay at OLB for the time being, where he was arguably a top 5 player last season.

Will the Green Bay defense be at least around league average this year?

Can James Stark stay healthy, and can either Green or Saine become the second option at RB?

Will Finley finally stop dropping so many passes and live up to his potential?

Is Jeff Saturday going to hold up at C?

Can Sherrod take over at LT or can Newhouse hold onto the starting spot and play well?

Is Aaron Rodgers the greatest player ever? (The answer is obviously yes)

I actually think Erick Decker will have a breakout year and turn in to the top receiver in Denver. It's gonna be interesting to see how Peyton adapts to having two big, strong wide receivers instead of the small, speedy, sharp trio of receivers he had in Indianapolis.

if they're one and done again or possibly even miss the playoffs would you still be confident with him as your qb of the future?

Our season pretty much keys on 2 things:

-Can the OL gel better then they did last year, especially in the run game?
-Will Perry Fewell realize he has a dominate defense when he doesn't hold them back?

What will the offense look like with the additions of Moss, Manningham, Jenkins, and James?

Smooth Criminal

Steelers can easily be summed up

Can Todd Haley run a better offense than Arians?
Can the defense stay at a top level while aging and adding nothing new.

aging by getting rid of Smith, Farrior, and possibly hampton?

adding nothing new except a bunch of new DB starters/playing time and a new NT? Not to mention Heyward on the dline probably getting much more playing time

Bears

--- Will the departure of Mike Martz (and his beloved 7-step drops) improve the protection of Jay Cutler?

--- Will Matt Forte hold out because of the franchise tag?

--- Will finally having a legitimate receiver allow Jay Cutler to take a huge step forward?

--- How much does the aging defense have left in their tank?

Two words: Bounty-gate.

Damn near every headline we have will be in relation to that.



Did they lose because Payton was not at the helm?

Did they miss they play-offs because Payton was not at the helm?

Did Brees have an off year because Payton was not around?

Would their defense be better if player x and y were there and not suspended?

Was the injury suffered by Saints' player A-Z a retribution for Bounty-Gate?

Was that penalty committed by the Saints D a clear indicator of a "Bounty" atmosphere?

Almost what I thought of. I'd add:

Who emerges as the feature back?
3-4, 4-3 or something else?
Has anyone found a defense for the Gronk-Hernandez duo?

Will brady's eventual decline into the twilight of his career come sooner or later?
Are our offensive weapons complete enough to mitigate this?
Will solder and vollmer be able to be the bookends we imagined?
I think vollmer is the bigger ? Plus it affects whether cannon is a g or t
Will we go forward with our two te monster or let one walk in fa eventually?

Will the real slim shady (pass rusher) please stand up
Can our secondary gel into respectability.

Jake Locker or Matthew Hasslebeck?

Will we throw a ton with all our options now?

Will CJ return to form?

Will this o-line run block better to help CJ return to form?

Will we pressure the QB please?

Which Michael Griffin will we see this year?

Can the rest of the defence catch up to D.Ware?
Will Romo produce another 30/10 season and still be questioned as the starting QB of the Dallas Cowboys?
Will the distribution to recievers in Dallas see 3 1000 yard recievers?
Can Demarco Murray stay fit and produce that coveted 1000 yard season that we haven't had in SOOOOOO long?

Figured I'd step up and do this seriously.

1. All starts with Jaaash. Which year was the real QB?

2. Will our D line stay healthy and produce like a unit with 2 #1s and 2 #2s should?

3. Will the additions of David and Barron improve perhaps the worst back seven in league last year?

4. Will the addition of Martin make our offence less predictable/more well rounded, especially on 3rd down?

5. Will Talib stick around? Schiano seems to have judged him and accepted him, unlike Tanard Jackson or some of the other wastes of oxygen we had last year.

6. Will our big three FAs earn their contracts?

gpngc
05-09-2012, 01:49 AM
1. Who will win the starting QB job and how well will Flynn, T-Jack, or Wilson play?

2. Who will start at MLB? Bobby Wagner, Barrett Ruud, or K.J. Wright?

3. Will Sidney Rice stay healthy and emerge as a true No. 1 WR?

4. Will the pass rush improve with the additions of Jason Jones and Bruce Irvin?

5. Can the young secondary possibly perform as well as it did last season?

6. Can the young OL stay on the field and play up to its potential, specifically Okung, Moffit, and Carpenter? How will the line shake out, especially at LG and RT?

7. Will a receiver emerge as a true No. 2 outside threat? Is Golden Tate that guy? Mike Williams? Ricardo Lockette? Deon Butler? Kris Durham?

8. Will Marshawn Lynch play as beastly as he did last year after signing a huge contract?

9. Who will step up as the No. 2 RB? Robert Turbin, Leon Washington, or Kregg Lumpkin?

10. Will Zach Miller have a better year with improved QB play?
