    Are you ready for some football? Ten things to watch for this season

    ....6. Calvin Johnson won't necessarily be the top rookie

    The addition of the Georgia Tech receiver has Detroit journeyman quarterback Jon Kitna thinking he's Dan Marino. Ten wins for Detroit and 50 touchdown passes for Kitna aren't happening, although Johnson will end the curse afflicting rookie receivers in Motown.

    The rookie with the biggest impact will be in Minnesota, where former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson will become a star in an offense with an unproven quarterback (second-year pro Tarvaris Jackson.....

    Palm Beach Post (FL) Dolphins page...
    Isn't this the same newspaper that said Minnesota gave up a great QB and that Daunte was going to lead the Dolphins to the promised land?
    Ya, with a track record like that I'm going to believe all they tell me!

    This one too!

    7. This season convinces Brett Favre to finally retire

    The off-season bumbling of the front office made Favre wonder why he had decided to return for a 16th season in Green Bay. Favre wanted another weapon for his offense, but General Manager Ted Thompson missed a chance to get Randy Moss, slept through the free-agency period and drafted a defensive lineman coming off a major injury (defensive tackle Justin Harrell of Tennessee) with the 16th pick.

    Still, if Green Bay misses the playoffs for the third consecutive season, Favre must look in the mirror. In the past two seasons, he has thrown for far more interceptions (47) than touchdowns (38) and his passer rating dipped below 73 both seasons.

    big question for me is how long it takes T Jackson to step up to promised full power. AP seems like an answered question in everyones mind.

    Not trying to jinx AP, but what if he is injured in training camp and not play a down all season.

    What will happen to Furrey if Johnson turns out....he could be a #2 guy elsewhere. How many years of his contract does he have left?

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    NFL always has pre season hype. every season there is always something to watch and be ready for. this is why it is the best league in the world.

    as for the peterson thing. i think he has the potential to kill this league. i hope he stays healthy and we give him the ball a lot.
