Reason for hope (and fear) for every team
As a generator of information, the NFL unwittingly has become expert at misdirection.


Many of its diversions were unintentional, but any lack of planning has failed to reduce the subsequent impact.

Instead of permitting fans to continue chewing on Eli Manning's emergence as a hero, the NFL and its emissaries were laying the foundation for the Brett Favre soap opera.

Rather than immersing ourselves in the free-agent derby, NFL followers were obliged to learn about the reinstatement efforts of Adam "New-Man" Jones.

Mini-camps were overshadowed by one man's unhappiness with Jason Taylor demonstrating his ability to dance.

And now, our march toward the beginning of big camps has been co-opted by that ongoing hootenanny in Green Bay.

Our efforts to re-establish a primary focus include prematurely judging the merits of the teams we love or love to hate. With such high-mindedness as our guide, we now will attempt to remind you that — based on preexisting assets, draft-day bonanzas and free-agent shopping — almost every team gives us something to be happy about. Almost every team also is rife with reasons to be a bit less cheerful.

We'll begin with the NFC, which manages to drag bragging rights into camp:

NFC East

  • Dallas Cowboys

    Be happy: Jerry Jones has added a Jones (Adam) who gives the Cowboys great depth in pass coverage and another Jones (Felix) who should be quite a change of pace at running back after the battering efforts of Marion Barber.

    Start worrying: Based on the egomaniacal history of some employees, the Dallas locker room could become more combustible than an uncensored reunion of "The View."

  • New York Giants

    Be happy: Your coach and quarterback will not begin the season on adjacent hot seats.

    Start worrying: The pass-rushing capacity that enabled the Giants to knock off New England has been diminished by the retirement of Michael Strahan.
