I think this Lonnie Wheeler piece from the Cincinnati Post has the right attitude about the off-season. Wow, our team is good -- on paper, with everyone healthy. There are a lot of teams where it seems like there won't be playing time for all the players, but we all know that some guys are going to get injured, and it will turn out that other guys' "off-seasons of hard work" will turn out to be "sitting around getting baked and playing Grand Theft Auto." Every time I read an article that says that Mike Williams is leaner and quicker or Derrick Johnson is impressive in Chiefs camp or rookie receiver Brandon Jones is having a great minicamp in Tennessee, I just ignore it. It's all just background noise.

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
