We all know we'll be drooling on the TV to see whether Favre looks good or bad (no matter which camp you're in), and to a lesser degree, we'll be especially interested to see what our other 3 QBs look like. Sage will be of particular interest, since he'll be going up against his former team.
But what else will you be looking for during Monday's game?
There's still a lot of questions up in the air!
What's going on with our WR corps? I want to see a lot more of Jaymar, Darius, and most especially, Percy Harvin. It would be nice to see if Berrian really does have the speed to stretch the field, too. It's all well and good having a great QB, but the Vikings were looking for a top WR in the draft for a reason; Berrian may be fast, but last year he rarely stretched the field and AP still dealt with 8-9 in the box and T-Jack was constantly freaking blitzed. The only thing changes that equation is a pair of speedy wide outs that force the secondaries to back off. Will Berrian show the speed he's supposed to be able to bring? How fast is Percy, really? I don't care about numbers, I want to see action.
Speaking of secondaries, I want to see more of ours in action. I want to feel comfortable with the loss of Sharper and I'm starting to get there. Yes, I know Sharper had lost more than a step last year, but when he was able to make up for it with experience, he could still body-slam with the best of them. I want to see more of Asher Allen, and Griffin, and Tyrell Johnson. I'm hoping they get better at reading the plays and getting out in front of the ball instead of letting it get caught and just tackling.
The poll's going to list some of the question-mark players other than the QBs, who're you going to be watching for the most, to see how they're doing?
(by the way, it's a tough choice, I'm going to be watching all those guys, the Mighty Purple has a wealth of great potential this year!)
