The number one thing people are buzzing about this year? Marvin Harrison looks like his old ninja self. I have to say, a return to form for Marvin isn’t exactly what I predicted (I basically have just been playing the “if he’s better great, if he’s not, we still love him” card), but now that I hear he’s going full speed, making cuts and looking good, I’m elated. I really didn’t want that fumble against San Diego to be the last real memory we had of him.
John Clayton also weighs in on issue #1, and his report is good. He thinks Freeney looks like he’s ahead of schedule.
Don’t forget to be reading Phil B. He thinks that Pollack will be the starter at guard. Scroll back a couple of days and check out his answer to my question about his cryptic statement about Tony Ugoh. Apparently, there are a couple of national guys out there who are stupid.
It’s not innate of anything, but FO looks at the Hall of Fame by team. The Indy Colts, of course, have just one real representative (Dickerson), with four more locks in waiting (Manning, Harrison, Dungy, and Polian). FO also mentions James and Wayne. Edge may well need another banner season or two. Reggie needs about 5 productive years and one more Super Bowl. Another Super Bowl would boost the resume of Jeff Saturday as well. Bob Sanders? The rumor is that he ripped the cranium off the top of the Dan Fouts bust and snacked upon his bronzed brain. For the safety of everyone involved, it may be best to keep him far away from Canton.
