I ran several threads a while back asking how people feel about different positions as camp starts. Specifically, for each position, I asked if they felt much better about the situation in 2008 (compared to 2007), a little better, about the same, or if they felt a little better or a lot better as training camp started in 2007.

Here are the results, ranked according to a composite rating. If the composite score is positive, then people feel better about the position in 2008 than in 2007. +2.0 is the best possible score, and -2.0 is the worst possible score.

The good news is that hope springs eternal, and people feel better about 25 of the 28 positions. Interestingly, the single best score was for Dorsey's defensive tackle position, while the only three negative scores were for the other three line positions, with the most concern being Hali replacing Jared Allen.

We're bullish on the young players, with Dorsey, Bowe, and Albert being seen as the greatest upgrades over last year's camp opening, followed by a belief that the running game will be stronger this year, Page will improve at free safety, and Flowers will improve the CB spot over Ty Law.

Other than predominant pessimism on the defensive line, people are somewhat static in their perceptions of the middle linebacker, left guard, and kicker positions.
