NFL Season Most Searched Questions
Updated: December 2017

 

Very soon the NFL training camp season will begin as teams start to report in mid-July. An exciting offseason has fans begging for more. What does the 2016 season hold? We will find out when it all unravels beginning Sept. 8th when defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos takes on Carolina Panthers to kick it all off. Here are some of the biggest questions entering the 2016 season.

Can Denver repeat as Super Bowl champion?

Probably not. The big reason is that No. 18, Peyton Manning called it a career. That coupled with the fact that no NFL team has been able to repeat as Super Bowl champion since the 2003-04 New England Patriots is reason enough for most to believe that it will not happen. With the emergence of Kansas City in the AFC West, there is no guarantee that the Broncos can even win their division.

Speaking of Denver, who will the quarterback be?

With Manning’s retirement, the big question in Denver is who will replace him. His understudy, Brock Osweiler, was snatched away by the Houston Texans in the offseason. Team general manager and vice president John Elway went out on the free agent market and got veteran Mark Sanchez and the Broncos drafted Memphis QB Paxton Lynch in the first round. The only other quarterback on the roster right now is Trevor Siemian, a third-year player out of Northwestern.

What will life be like in Detroit without Calvin Johnson?

The top receiver in Lions history retired in the offseason and now QB Matthew Stafford will look to Golden Tate and newly acquired Marvin Jones as his go-to guys. Jones was signed away from Cincinnati after catching 65 passes for 816 yards last season. He is nowhere near the talent of Johnson, who was one of the game’s greatest ever. The Lions also signed Jeremy Kerley and still have Corey Fuller on the roster. Detroit signed four undrafted free agents – Jay Wells, Jace Billingsley, Quinshad Davis, and Simms McElfresh. It could be a long year for the Detroit offense.

Will Eddie Lacy produce in Green Bay?

So, the Packers running back gained a little weight. The extra load placed Lacy directly in head coach Mike Sherman’s doghouse. After rushing for 1,178 yards and 11 TDs as a rookie and then 1,139 yards and nine scores in his second season, Lacy managed just 758 yards last season. The former Alabama star spent the offseason with Tony Horton, yes the same guy who invented P90X. The results have been amazing. Lacy looks better and has reportedly lost between 15 and 18 pounds. Time will tell, but Lacy appears to be headed toward great things in 2016.

What will happen to Colin Kaepernick?

Once considered to be unstoppable at quarterback, Kaepernick wound up benched by then head coach Jim Tomsula in Week 9 last season. Then, he missed the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury. There was talk of trading the guy who led them to the Super Bowl in the 2012 season. With the hiring of Chip Kelly as the head coach, it appears Kaepernick may have been issued a reprieve. He’s perfect for Kelly’s offense. Plus, he isn’t going anywhere. The Rams and Eagles both drafted quarterbacks. Cleveland signed Robert Griffin III and drafted Cody Kessler. Denver signed Mark Sanchez and drafted Paxton Lynch, and the Jets drafted Christian Hackenberg to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith.

 

Will Cleveland improve under Hue Jackson?

Well, they can’t be any worse. One headache that is gone is Johnny Manziel. With him gone, Jackson can focus on a quarterback that will value the game more than the night life. Cleveland signed Robert Griffin III and the former Redskins QB is hoping the move will give him new life. The Browns also drafted USC star Cody Kessler, a very solid passer who played in a pro-style offense. Fourteen-year NFL veteran Josh McCown is still on the roster as is Austin Davis and Connor Shaw, who started a game last year. Jackson was well-known for his development of Andy Dalton in Cincinnati. If the Browns can play some defense, they may be able to better their three-win total from a year ago.
