Which position group are you most worried about?
Roethlisberger, Packers: David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay have looked shaky at best in the preseason, which has led to multiple hits on Rodgers. The position is something to be tremendously worried about as it looks to be the Achilles heel in the offense.
Payton, Lions: The special teams unit is still my biggest bugaboo. The Lions special teams unit killed so many drives before they had a chance to start in 2014. They also allowed teams to get into better field position. I have seen little to no improvement in this facet of their game, and that is a major concern considering the Lions had one of the leagues worst special teams units in 2014.
Carlson, Vikings: I’m worried about the offensive line. Matt Kalil is inconsistent and the recent Achilles tendon injury Phil Loadholt has him out for the season. It will be up to either a backup or a rookie to start at right tackle next to another new starter at right guard, Mike Harris. Luckily, both Fusco and Sullivan are rocks on the offensive line that are as solid as can be.
Schmelzer, Bears: When it comes to the Bears, almost every unit is a question mark so this is a very difficult question to answer. If I have to choose one, it would be the cornerback position.
Kyle Fuller is projected to be the number one, but he is far from a proven commodity. The team recently released veteran Tim Jennings in favor of journeymen like Alan Ball and Tracy Porter. Young guys like Sherrick McMannis, Demontre Hurst and Terrance Mitchell have shown some upside, but there is just too much unknown.
