Thats not happening. It isn't much of a position battle at all. The job is Brandon's.

leftwich7 04-12-2007 12:14 PM

Greg Jones, Maurice Jones-Drew, and Fred Taylor
Gerald Sensabaugh vs Donovan Darius
Byron Leftwich vs Injury
Jaguars WR vs consistency

im curious to see if Robert Gallery can hold on to his left tackle position.

Splat 04-12-2007 12:19 PM

Chiefs

QB - Damon Huard or Brodie Croyle

For the Chargers...

Antonio Cromartie vs. Drayton Florence for #2 CB
That's really the only major position battle I see them having, aside from LB and S and WR, but the draft may play a huge impact on the players we have to choose from.

Its really more a case of
Grossman vs. Inconsistency
Grossman vs. Stupidity
Grossman vs. Injury

Theres nothing really Griese can do in practice and training camp to win the job over Grossman. Its Rex's job to lose.

The Dynasty 04-12-2007 01:04 PM

For the Vikings

S - Doss,Williams,Sharper,Smith

I don't think RB is a position battle: all three have well-defined roles.

Sensabaugh vs. Darius doesn't exist. While Darius' play is starting to decline, he is still the starter. Sensabaugh's battle will be for the FS position vs. the likely Jags draftee.

The other two are right, lol.

Jack Del Rio declared a position battle at left tackle between Mo Williams and Khalif Barnes, but that's fluff. No friggin' way Mo beats Khalif.

Exactly. But what if Grossman stinks up the joint early and often, and Griese does well in the PS again?

Let's say 3 weeks into the regular season, Grossman continues to do what he does. Do they pull the plug?

LOL, tough one there.

I agree about Lilja vs. Gandy and Jackson vs. Hayden.

I'm not sure if Hagler vs. Keiaho will be a position battle, they may play at different spots.

Perhaps someone also challenges Brock for UT, at least I hope.

The Falcons don't have many.

Jerious Norwood may edge out Warrick Dunn for playing time.

There is a competition at LG, between Tyson Clabo, Quinn Ojinnaka, Toniu Fonoti, and probably whomever the team drafts early on.

I'm interested to see how the WR position will end up. Personally, I love Roddy White's upside. If he could just stay consistent, when he is on, he is a much better player than Michael Jenkins.

so who on earth are the Falcons drafting? My head hurts thinking about it.

Shiver 04-12-2007 01:15 PM

I think Landry is a lock, if he is there. If he isn't, I have no clue. I've read rumblings about Adrian Peterson, Amobi Okoye, Levi Brown, even Patrick Willis.

Landry over Moses? Hmmm...I don't know. And if somehow Calvin Johnson is available, I think the Falcs get him.

The Falcons to me are one of the harder teams to project. Dammit, I want the draft to come by already.

EDIT: I meant Adams, not Moses.

scottyboy 04-12-2007 01:23 PM

Rex Grossman vs. Rex Grossman

Moses? Like, Quentin Moses? Um, that would be a huge reach as of now. He's greatly fallen.

Shiver 04-12-2007 01:27 PM

Yeah, I am going to assume that's a typo.
