Well, training camps are opening this week, The Giants and A's suck, so that only means one thing. The NFL season is right around the corner and I can't wait. I figure since this is the sports forum, we can seperate College and Pro, so if anyone wants to start the college thread, go right ahead. The NFL, though, is back and it's the time of year where your team might suck, but you have a chance because there is something about the league that psyches you up. How's your team shaping up going into training camp? Will Brett Farve actually play for the Packers or will he actually go to a rival or stay retired. Will the Patriots actually lose a regular season game? So many questions and we've got 7 months to discuss it all. For me, I'm looking forward to seeing how the Niners are doing. I don't expect playoffs, but I expect significant improvement and steps forward this year. They have a strong defense with Willis, Clements, and Manny Lawson coming back after that really bad injury. I'm looking forward to the QB competition between Smith and Hill and how Martz will run the offense, which was a really big problem last year. I really hope Frank Gore (Not a first round draft pick in fantasy IMO) improves from last year and the schedule is actually favorable. I'm not saying playoffs or bust, but I don't think it's too much to say this team could easily go 8-8 or 9-7. Football is back, and I can't wait.
