Young wide receivers like Devin Aromashodu and Johnny Knox will have to adapt to Mike Martz's scheme.

1. New Offensive System for the Receivers

For most of our young receivers, this is only their second offensive system. (Although calling Ron Turner’s offense a “system” is like calling the song “Who let the dogs out” a national anthem). It’s too hard to believe they will adapt quickly to a system based on pre-snap adjustments.  How long will it take them to adapt to the decisions required by this new offense and the speed and deception of a live defense? Will they struggle against Detroit in the opener? Probably. Will they be ready for Dallas, Green Bay and the Giants? Those are three pretty good defenses. It’s very hard to believe they can come out of that first quarter-season any better than 2-2.
