How quickly is Cutler picking up Martz's complex system?
Going down the depth chart, if second stringer Caleb Hanie doesn't do well for himself over the course of these three days with his limited reps, perhaps general manager Jerry Angelo will indeed check the open market for a veteran backup.
What is the rotation going to look like at running back?
If Taylor is working with the first-team offense this weekend enough to break a sweat – say, one rep for every two of Forte's – then you can be sure this pair is going to rotate somewhat frequently once live bullets start firing in September.
Is Aromashodu ready to announce to the NFL he's a No. 1?
Aromashodu caught 22 passes for 272 yards and four touchdowns in the four games closing out 2009, which would translate to 88, 1,088 and 16 if he could do it all season long, and that's in the vicinity of Larry Fitzgerald numbers.
Where is Olsen lining up more often than not?
If Olsen is lining up all over the field this weekend like he used to for Turner, then he'll be fine; if his hand starts to get grass-stained from the extended time it spends on the ground, then plan to avoid him in your fantasy draft.
Will anyone step up and claim the starting job at guard?
Assuming Omiyale can play right tackle well enough to be a competent bookend to Williams, left guard is the only position along the line in question and could be a big factor in determining the offense's direction this season.
