I'll start off by grading the team.
QB. grade, A. Manning turned 32 in march but still has alot left. Jim Sorgi is an okay back-up.
RB.Grade,A-. Joseph Addai is a all-around great RB.Dominic Rhodes is a good back-up, as is Kenten Keith.Mike Hart was a steal in the 6th round.
WR. Grade,A-. With Marvin Harrison back, this group is deadly good.
TE. Grade, A-. Dallas Clark is a great TE. Rookie Jacob Tamme will start right away and is a good TE.They have great depth at TE with Rookie Tom Santi and a couple other good back-up.
O-Line. Grade,B+. Four starters are returning with the loss of Jake Scott. Tony Ugoh is a great, young LT. Ryan Lilja is a good vet at LG. Jeff Saturday is the best Center in the game.Rookie Mike Pollak(former center) is a great fit in this offence. Ryan Diem is a brauler. Okay Depth.
D-Line, Grade,B. Robert Mathis is a solid starter at LE. RE Dwight Freeney is a pro-bowler.Both Raheem Brockand Edward Johnson are okay/solid starters at DT.
LB. Grade,B+. There always seems to be diffent starters at both OLB spots but the MLB spot is manned by Gary Bracket who is a solid starter.
Secondary.Grade A-.FS Bob Sanders was the Defensive Player of the Year, while SS Antoine Bethea was a pro-bowler. CBs Kelvin Hayden and Marlin Jackson are both solid starters.
ST. Grade, B. Adam Vinatieri is a great kicker. Hunter Smith had a poor season but still is a good punter.T.J. Rushing is a destant returner.Their cover team failed badly last season giving up 8 TDs.
Overall Grade A-. I look for them to win 12 games this season.
