The Peyton Manning era in Denver finally gets under way Sunday night against the Steelers after months of anticipation from the football nation. Perhaps the best part of the anticipation is the debate among the fans about the degree of success he’ll experience after missing the entire 2011 season and having four neck surgeries.
Here in Las Vegas, pro football fans don’t just debate the matter, they wager accordingly, and there have been two factions that have made their voices loud and clear. On one end, we have the largest portion of fans with small money betting the Broncos to win the Super Bowl as if they’ve already seen the Feb. 4, 2013 newspaper. On the other side, we have a small portion of bettors with large money betting the Broncos to win less than 8 ½ games in the over-under, season-win totals offered.
Even with the Bryant McKinnie drama in the first week of camp, the Ravens are feeling pretty good about their offensive tackle position. McKinnie played well last season after joining Baltimore late in the preseason, but by no-showing early in camp and only re-joining practice over the weekend after passing his conditioning test, he has opened the door for Michael Oher to reclaim the starting left tackle job he held prior to 2011. Oher has looked solid in that spot so far, and rookie Kelechi Osemele has progressed rapidly at right tackle, with veteran Jah Reid giving Baltimore some depth on the right side.
Add it all up and the Ravens have the option of parting ways with McKinnie if he doesn't keep his weight under control and prove he's one of the team's five best linemen. If he can't beat out Oher, Baltimore won't keep him around as a backup, even if it did pay him a $500,000 roster bonus in the offseason. McKinnie still has time to change some minds, but he needs to be able to run and move and handle the fast-paced, up-tempo style game that Baltimore wants its line to play. It's just my hunch, but unless injuries occur, I'd put my money on Oher at left tackle in Week 1's Monday nighter at home against division rival Cincinnati.
Paul Kruger, outside linebacker. No pressure on Kruger this season. All he has to do is replace the league's reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Terrell Suggs, who tore his Achilles' tendon this offseason and likely won't return to his high-impact self until 2013. Suggs, of course, has been one of the NFL's most disruptive players from his weakside rush-linebacker slot, and in reality the Ravens know that one player alone probably can't make up for his lost production.
The Ravens already knew Kruger had strong pass rush skills, but they've been encouraged this camp by his improvement in the area of pass coverage, knowing when and how to go into his drops. Staying healthy and surviving the 16-game grind is another key for Kruger, but he's off to a strong start and seems determined to seize the starting opportunity at hand and make sure the Ravens season didn't end when Suggs went down.
Pittsburgh may have gotten the steal of the draft by taking David DeCastro 24th overall. DeCastro is an instant upgrade over any player the Steelers have put at guard since Alan Faneca left the team.
There's no doubt DeCastro opens the season as the starter in the Steel City and, barring any major setback, his style of play should help him fit right in with his Steelers teammates.
Same story pretty much as Chandler Jones, although New England already had a pretty good linebacking corps with Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes and Rob Ninkovich.
Like Jones, Hightower's scheme versatility allows the Patriots to draw up a lot of plays to utilize his talents. In the base 4-3 sets, Hightower will line up at the SAM linebacker position, allowing Ninkovich to move up to defensive end.
It'd be hard for me to think a player with Hightower's skill set and leadership qualities wouldn't be starting for the Patriots, whose defense lacked a lot of firepower in 2011.
