How long will it be before Harris takes a day of rest?
And if Harris is given a day off early on in training camp, this far removed from the December 2006 knee/hamstring injury he seems to have suffered from ever since, then it may be safe to assume the three-time Pro Bowler is damaged goods and will never return to form.
Does having Peppers mean Smith calls more Cover 2?
Should Peppers ultimately prove to be worth the money and capable of pressuring the passer down in and down out, Smith can go back to the scheme's roots and force enemy offenses to beat his defense with 10- and 12-play drives.
Can Urlacher still cover the deep middle of the field?
Bears fans should be very happy to hear about Urlacher getting his hands on balls over the middle in training camp, even if he doesn't intercept them, as that might mean he has enough gas left in the tank to be a Pro Bowler once again.
Has Roach improved enough to beat out Tinoisamoa this time?
Just because Tinoisamoa beat out Roach a year ago, that doesn't mean the same thing will happen this time around.
When will Wright threaten to break into the lineup?
The less time it takes Wright to learn the defense and let his natural play-making ability take over, the better the chances that Manning is put out of his misery for good as a safety and can go back to playing nickel and returning kickoffs.
