YAY! Training camp is almost here!
YAY! Training camp is almost here!Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Lots of stuff to get to today, not the least of which is picking up my car.

However that ISN'T part of your NFC North coverage, so don't worry about it. I think there are some great news pieces in here today and may be riffing on a few later.



Minnesota Vikings

Bob Sansevere talked to Vikes GM Rick Spielman about upcoming training camp as well as the VIkings' offseason.

Charley Waters says Spielman is holding second-year quarterback Christian Ponder to a very high standard this year.

Tom Pelissero takes a look at the Vikings' roster, today examining the running backs.


Chicago Bears

Jeff Dickerson and Mike Wright ask if the Chicago Bears' wide receivers are worth the preseason hype

Brad Biggs talks about the role rookie Shae McClellin will have to take on this season.


Detroit Lions

Anwar Richardson talks about the real possibility proposed over at Walter Football that Cliff Avril can be replaced in the 2013 draft.

Justin Rogers recaps Avril's appearance on NFL Live and, among other things, took a bit of a shot at Packers WR Greg Jennings. Not that Jennings was wrong, mind you, just that he shouldn't have said it.

Has any group of folks missed the point and context more thoroughly than the Lions on Jennings?  


Green Bay Packers

Tyler Dunne reports Graham Harrell is confident that if need be, he can step in for Aaron Rodgers.

Peter Bukowski talks about that awkward moment post-bad breakup when you run into her/him at the local deli—or the Packers/Favre relationship.

Same difference.
