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.

    Out of the park City, nice…..

    Wish it wasn’t true, but sometimes an apple has to be labled an apple.

    Thanks Windy! I am absolutely hoping that I’m wrong.

    And every year seems to have its surprise teams (Both good and bad). My suspect teams (that could be over-rated right now and falter through the season) are: the Giants, Vikings, Jets, and even the Patriots may not end up as daunting as we think right now. Having said that the Redskins, Carolina and Miami make me nervous as potentially better than we think they are right now. But man, this is a tough year to draw the AFC East.
