Is Tom Brady REALLY back? – Obviously the New England Patriots think so. But Brady suffered a serious injury. His mobility could still be affected and a year off can’t help. Returning to form in the NFl would cement his legend as well as assure the Patriots a playoff spot and a shot at Super Bowl ring 4.
Is Jay Cutler the answer for Chicago? – The Chicago Bears have been the victim of erratic quarterback play for the last four seasons. Cutler is a Pro Bowl vet with an imppressive pedigree. More weapons would help but Cutler should significantly improve the Bears offense.
Are the Cardinals real? – It still seems amazing. The Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl? A return trip to the playoffs is a must to prove 2008 was no fluke.
New Coaches – Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and others all have new guys at the top. Some will still be here three years from now and others will fall. Denver especially, will be under the microscope.
