You can draft Isaac Redman as your RB whatever. I'll take a last round flier on Jonathan Dwyer possibly outproducing him although NONE of the Steeler RB's look like anything other than a bye week fill in to me.

Eagles rookie LB Mychal Kendricks looks a half step quicker and faster than just about everyone else on that defense. Not sure if their D scheme is going to allow him to be a stud IDP but his athleticism really jumped out at me.

Mike Vick still looks lost in the pocket. If you drafted him, better hope he starts running.

Todd Haley's new offensive scheme is not going to result in Roethlisberger getting rid of the ball quicker - it looks like Big Ben is the old dog that you can't teach a new trick to.

I wish I had drafted Julio Jones but I am glad I drafted QB Matt Ryan.

Was wrong - Quizz is for real.

Tom Brady missed an open Brandon Lloyd on the one deep route they ran. He won't miss that throw in a few weeks.

I'll take Decker, you can have Thomas. It's easy to forget Decker has some pedigree and was a very highly touted prospect in college after his junior year (as high as Rd2) before getting hurt.

Yea dwyer looks like the man. And julio is looking like a top3 wr. Vick did look like de ja vu...I wouldn't be suprised if rg3 outproduces him this year. Peyton looked rusty and slow...but it was expected. Vereen looked a lot more explosive then ridley. Pierre looks like he could have a good year...and lastly quizz needs to be starting in that high power offense he fits the scheme perfect.

only caught bits and pieces.... i did see RGIII's first TD. pierre garcon looked pretty explosive on that little run outta the flat and into the endzone. obviously RGIII and the Skins will go 16-0 and win the Super Bowl.

Seemingly everyday, I let Vick creep up my board, always thinking: "What if he puts it all together this year and stays healthy.." Then I saw some of him last night and reality hit me again. Though, I'm in one league where Stafford, Cam and Eli are getting kept and Rodgers, Brady and Brees will be gone before R2; so that's one league I may end up with him with and I'm no longer very confident.

As for Julio, his stock is now going to artificially rise.

Nice, had pretty much all of those same knee jerks, here's a few more:

Matty Ice breakthrough looks warranted. Matty to Julio is gonna be monstrous this year, Roddys still got it, and Quizzys role will increase (and Harry Douglas will be clutch out of the slot, didn't get to see him preseason wk1 due to bruised ribs)

Antonio Gates looks like a different man, foot woes behind him and overall looking leaner/faster, and will be relied on heavily w/ Vjax departure + Mathews injured.

Vincent Brown looks every bit the talented sleeper and could challenge the incumbent Floyd or hyped Robert Meachem for PT, def a guy to keep in mind

Garçon is looking like he will benefit from the QB upgrade greatly and is looking like a draft day steal at his current ADP. RGIII is too smart not to adapt to the NFL

Peyton Manning's velocity is not quite there yet and the Broncoes may be running a lot more flats w/ RBs + intermediate routes making Decker the guy to own over Demaryius albeit upside

Better handcuff Vick if youre taking him, almost a lock to miss at least a few games

Evan Royster not only looks every bit a rookie, but also lacks talent; Helus still the man to own here

how are you guys feeling about McGahee... i know everyone assumes he's done/overrated and people are excited about the rookie RB. but his mileage is low for his age, and Peyton will trust a vet, and could get lots of dumpoff. he had a solid year even though everyone stacked the box and Tebow stole lots of carries/TD's. he could be a surprised at his ADP.

Mcgahee looks like he's going to be a really good RB2 or low RB1. I forgot to mention him but he looks like he will be used a lot.

I think McGahee's success last year was because of Tebow, not in spite of it.

Vick's backup is Mike Kafka, but Nick Foles looked very impressive. Good footwork and pocket presence. I won't be surprised to see Foles at #2.

I wouldn't make any observations about PIT running game, as the PHI run defense tends to be the biggest wildcard in the nfl (well as far as run defenses go). I agree with the above that Kendricks looked great. I'm not sure if he's that good or the rest of them are that bad though.

good point, and true. but i still think he could have continued success w/ Manning (for different reasons).

Maclin didn't, but only because his hamstring was strained pre-game
