    Offseason forecast by SI.com

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/writers/don_banks/02/10/banks/index.html

    the whole story is on the link, but here is the NFC North

    Fearless predictions
    Forecasting the offseason for all 32 franchises


    NFC NORTH
    Chicago -- The Bears will make a push to bring Chicago-area native Antwaan Randle El home and install the Steelers free agent in their lineup as the ideal No. 2 receiver alongside last year's big signing, Muhsin Muhammad.

    Detroit -- New offensive coordinator Mike Martz will give it a month or so and then declare that he can win with 2002 first-round pick Joey Harrington at quarterback. But that won't necessarily preclude Detroit from giving the position first-round attention in the draft.

    Green Bay -- Brett Favre will retire. Finally. Amid great fanfare. And then he'll get the itch to play again as training camp approaches, sparking a whole new genre of Favre un-retirement stories.

    Minnesota -- The Vikings may flirt with the idea of getting into the bidding for one of the premier free-agent running backs -- such as Shaun Alexander, Edgerrin James or Jamal Lewis -- but they're much more likely to address their need with the No. 17 pick in the draft's first round.

    sports illustrated is stupid, the vikings would kinda dumb to draft a running back in the draft. moore, fason, and smith are all very young still and they want to go and get another young running back who isn't going to be an impact this year how sad. but!!! it would be cheaper and we would have more money to spend on free agents and the only 2 guys i would want for running back want a ton of money and there is no gurantee that they will be half as good on our team.
    I don t buy Wisconsin cheese.

    Smith may not be back, M.Williams may retire, Bennett's not coming back. We "may" not sign Edge, Alexander..... leaving only Fason( who didn't show much) and Moore. WE NEED DEPTH AT RB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    most people here want us to draft White or Malroony if they are on the board when our pick comes...
