The Hall of Fame Game has finally come and gone, which means ... yep, you guessed it: the first Power Rankings of the 2015 season.
This time of year continues to trick us every season. Summer football teases, with hope springing eternal for every team and general managers drinking their own Kool-Aid about the stellar performances forthcoming from their former third-string quarterbacks. Of course, that's what makes prognosticating fun -- the fact that we're all going to be wrong at some point.
As for making football fun, that's what Frank Gifford, Howard Cosell and Don Meredith did on Monday nights for a certain 8-year-old kid in Dallas. Gifford was a soothing voice in our living room; the only downside was my mom making me go to bed after Cosell did the halftime highlights. This weekend, I spoke to many Hall of Famers about Gifford, who passed away on Sunday, with nothing but respect coming from all of them. What a loss for the football community.
The game that Gifford played at the highest level kicks into gear this week, as 30 teams make their debuts in Week 1 of the preseason -- with the Vikings and Steelers having already graced the stage in the aforementioned clash in Canton. How does everyone stack up for now? See below. As always, your take is welcome ... @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Now, let's get to it!
**a)** Will the addition of Byron Maxwell clean up the secondary play?
**b)** How effective will the offensive line be with new faces replacing Evan Mathis and Todd Herremans?
**d)** Will rookie receiver Nelson Agholor develop like Jordan Matthews did last year -- and can the latter take a step forward? (Matthews looks fantastic, by the way.)
