    Buy = You agree with the idea
    Sell = You don't agree


    BUY or SELL: Greg Jennings will be The #2 reciever when the season starts.

    BUY or SELL: Favre will not start all 16 games in 2006.

    BUY or SELL: Marquand Manuel will get his first regular-season interception.

    BUY or SELL: Gado will have more rushing yards than Green when the season ends.
    ----------------

    Now you go on to answer them, one by one. IF you think Jennings wont be the #2 reciever, you say you SELL the idea, and then tell us why you feel that way(and so on). I am just trying to give us something to do till friday(mini camp #2). I'll answer mine after a couple people go first.

    BUY or SELL: Greg Jennings will be The #2 reciever when the season starts. Sell - can't see a rookie opening with the other vets available. It will be Ferguson.

    BUY or SELL: Favre will not start all 16 games in 2006. Sell. Nobody ever gets a clean shot at Favre. He will not get hurt. No matter how badly the season goes, Rodgers will not start.

    BUY or SELL: Marquand Manuel will get his first regular-season interception. Buy.

    BUY or SELL: Gado will have more rushing yards than Green when the season ends. Buy. Green is done. Deficator is more injury prone than Grossman. Gado will lead.

    Sell...i'm thinking he'll get some snaps in the slot and thats about it. there's a lot of experience in front of him, definitely not #2 imo...

    Buy...he's Favre, he'd play with one arm.
    *edit-that should say "Sell"...i'm easily confised.*


    Buy...suuuure, why not.

    hmm...thats a good one.

    Sell...for the simple fact that i really want Green to come back healthy and prove to everybody that he's still a badass.

    I hate Around The Horn, but I'll play anyways.

    SELL Greg Jennings opening as the #2. I think that job will be given to Ferguson.

    SELL Favre not starting all 16 games. His past history makes that a safer bet than the not.

    BUY Manuel's 1st interception. Even if the guy stunk, he could still get lucky.

    SELL Gado having more rushing yards than Green. As long as Green's healthy he will probably get more carries than Gado. I'm still not sold on Gado being anything more than a good backup.

    SELL: he fits the scheme well and is a big receiver for Favre to target, so that is a definite plus. I think he may end up with the second most yards/receptions/TD's for WR's, so he may end up the #2 receiver in principle. but i think he'll line up as possibly #3.

    SELL: The only way Favre won't start every game is if he dies on the field, and i don't see that happening.

    BUY: I can see Manuel picking off 5 or more passes this year. With Al Harris on one side, and Charles Woodson on the other, QB's are going to have to be very selective in where they throw the ball. I think Manuel is a very under-rated player and can see QB's try to take advantage of him, giving this very solid player many interception chances.

    SELL: Even if Green isn't ready to start the year, i don't see Gado as being the starter. He'll get some good hard earned yards this year, but I believe Davenport will be expected to pick up the slack if Green doesn't make it back in time for the start of the season and Gado playing an important backup role.

    When the season starts. I sell that. Half way through I'd buy it.

    SELL
    Buy he'll get at least one.

    toughest quesion by far. I think it'll be close. I'm going to buy it. I think Gado is plays better earlier because he'll be ready. Green won't start practicing until mid to late August so it may take him some time to get in the groove.

    1. SELL, unfortunately I don't see a rookie getting the 2 spot.
    2. SELL, the pack will start Favre even if just to keep his record going.
    3. SELL, cause Collins will have all the picks this season!
    4. BUY, It might be out with the old in with the new time.....Bennett ---> Levens ---> Green --->Gado

    (Jennings) SELL. For all the rookie reasons already stated.

    (Favre) SELL. He'd throw left-handed before he'd sit the bench.

    (Manuel) BUY. Because all opponents will play from behind, he'll get more than his share of chances.

    (Gado) BUY. He'll prove to be the real deal and by midseason will be heralded as TT's diamond in the rough.

    It appears to be a buyers market, with the exception of item 1, I am buying.

    I actually think Gardner has a shot at the #1 position, shoot me but he's a #1 playmaker if he gets out his potential.

    i want Driver to stay #1, but again, that's football becoming personal. I sure as hell hope that Gardner can live up to that potential... i don't know much about him so i'll take your word for it buddy. here's to hoping!

    SELL. It will be Driver and the winner of the Gardener / Ferguson suckfest.

    SELL. I won't make a prediction based on a possible injury. If Brett's healthy, he's the starter.

    BUY. Assuming he's going to start, this is practically a no-brainer.

    SELL. Again, no injury predictions. Gado showed some great flashes lat year, but Green is far and away the better back overall.

    BUY or SELL: Greg Jennings will be The #2 reciever when the season starts.
    - SELL: Gardner\Boreigter, even Ferguson should earn the #2 job. Jennings will still get a lot of play.


    BUY or SELL: Favre will not start all 16 games in 2006.
    - BUY: If he was going to get hurt due to bad o-line, it woulda been last year.


    BUY or SELL: Marquand Manuel will get his first regular-season interception.
    - BUY: Hopefully his interception in the NFC Championship game was the start of something special!


    BUY or SELL: Gado will have more rushing yards than Green when the season ends.
    - BUY: Ahman still isn't healthy yet, Gado is in better shape, absorbing the playbook with his doctor mind, and is a talented player already. Green is getting older, he's hurt, and his time could be limited. Najeh is Najeh...which means...before he gets hurt he will due some 3rd and short runs.

    your favre comment is ambiguous. you BUY that he will not start all 16 games this year, but you imply that he had a better chance of getting hurt last year. so... you do think he will start all 16 games?

    Man I'm glad you are not my broker :wink:

    You think Favre will not get hurt yet you are "buying" that he will not start all 16 games?

    good catch, i did that too fast. Everyone makes mistakes, unless you're Brett Favre :roll:

    new 2006 version:

    BUY or SELL: Greg Jennings will be The #2 reciever when the season starts.
    - SELL: Gardner\Boreigter, even Ferguson should earn the #2 job. Jennings will still get a lot of play.


    BUY or SELL: Favre will not start all 16 games in 2006.
    - SELL: If he was going to get hurt due to bad o-line, it woulda been last year.


    BUY or SELL: Marquand Manuel will get his first regular-season interception.
    - BUY: Hopefully his interception in the NFC Championship game was the start of something special!


    BUY or SELL: Gado will have more rushing yards than Green when the season ends.
    - BUY: Ahman still isn't healthy yet, Gado is in better shape, absorbing the playbook with his doctor mind, and is a talented player already. Green is getting older, he's hurt, and his time could be limited. Najeh is Najeh...which means...before he gets hurt he will due some 3rd and short runs.

    Same here --- no reason to think otherwise....

    One thing about Gado -- He still hasn't played a FULL season.
    (Something to think about)

    I'm too wordy for 1 word answers, but assuming no injuries:

    1. Jennings will be the #2 WR by the end of the season, not the begining.
    2. Favre will start all games.
    3. Manuel will not get his first INT. He will not be nickel or dime back.
    4. Gado will be the #1 RB and should have more yards.

    These are expectations and not predictions.
