    Players are reporting, practices are starting, and the Hall of Fame Game is eight days away. The offseason is over!

    The most famous backup QB in NFL history. I think Hoyer will be under center Week One against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. But unless Hoyer gets the Browns on a roll early, Manziel will get his shot. What he does with it is up in the air. I tend to think that his game is not going to translate to the NFL level - the players are too strong, too fast and too smart for his freelance style to succeed. But we'll find out. In fairness, there were a lot of future NFL defenders on those Alabama teams he torched the last two years.

    Not excited about that Week One trip to Denver for the Colts. I'll put the number of TD passes for Manning at four. Take the over.

    Peyton is going to be fired up for that one, that loss in Indy stung last year. Hopefully it will be payback time

    And no Robert Mathis either. Could be a long game unless Luck can keep them in it. Denver's revamped secondary is going to get a good test.

    I'm excited to see Denver's defense...I like the improvements they've made on that side of the ball. If the Broncos can stay healthy and avoid injuries to key players which was an issue last year, they'll be better than they were in 2013.

    Agreed. They're the heavy favorite in the AFC. Eric Decker will miss them more than they'll miss him. Ditto for Knowshon Moreno.

    This has felt like one of the longest offseasons ever. Maybe it's because there was no NCAA Football video game...

    Not sure what to expect out of the Vikings this year. I'm not so concerned about the results, more about how Teddy Bridgewater develops, the new coaching staff runs things, and how well-positioned they can be heading into '15-'16. Adrian Peterson won't be around forever, and if they are going to make a playoff run with him as the cornerstone, it will need to be relatively soon.

    The other night I ran across the CFL on ESPN2...I watched about a quarter to get my fix.

    NFC North is going to be really interesting. Can Green By stay healthy or stop anybody? Will Cutler show he's the guy? With a new coach, will Detroit play with any kind of discipline to go along with their talent? Who is going to be the QB in Minnesota? Should be a dogfight

    Green Bay will run away with it as long as they stay relatively healthy.

    I agree; I think GB wins the division, Chicago competes for a wild card, and Minnesota rebuilds. Detroit is the wild card I think - they could be anywhere from 5-11 wins.

    I was at the Kansas City Chiefs camp yesterday in St Joseph, MO. First practice in pads and those guys wanted to hit. Fun day

    How did Aaron Murray look? I was surprised when he didn't start camp on the PUP list. He tore his ACL just last November, so that's a pretty quick recovery time. Amazing when you consider that the rehab time on that sort of injury used to be one full year.

    I follow ESPN's Chiefs guy on Twitter and he said the Chiefs like what they see in him but don't be surprised if he is on the Injured Reserve all year. Alex Smith is the obvious starter, then Chase Daniel is the back-up. Tyler Bray likely has the 3rd string spot too. They drafted Murray so they don't want to cut him so IR is probably the best option for him anyways.

    I'm nervous about the Chiefs offensive line situation.
