Audio: Checking in with Football Today

The latest Football Today podcast includes appearances from all four ESPN.com NFC bloggers. Naturally, it leads off with the NFC North.

Matt Williamson and I touched on the Green Bay Packers’ efforts to stave off complacency and the Chicago Bears’ offensive line. I tried to back Matt off his assertion that the Minnesota Vikings will be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season and discussed what this summer has taught us about the Detroit Lions.

Finally, a VERY important note. At the end, Matt asked for my 2011 predictions for the NFC North. I gave an off-the-cuff answer that I will neither confirm nor deny will match up with what you see in next week’s official NFL preview.
