Her: "We should check out that new Italian place tomorrow." Him: "I just figured out a new variation on the nickel. What the heck is she talking about?"

Eh, maybe not so preposterously early. The Jets rookies have already reported (yesterday); most rookies report on Monday, and by next Wednesday, almost every team is in camp. We decided to take a look at some broad themes of the upcoming NFL season. There's a ton of aggregated content below, so bookmark it. Yea!

WHEN IS YOUR TEAM REPORTING? Check it out right here.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO ABOUT FANTASY? Start by going right here. Then go here. This will also help you. As will this. And enter our Six-Word contest while you're at it.

WHO MIGHT WIN THE SUPER BOWL? Patriots seem like a good candidate. Read this as a primer on them. Then read this as another reason they might win it all. In the NFC, we like the Cowboys. They do have a ton of distractions, though. Vikings are a sleeper pick. We'd like to think this is the year the San Diego Chargers finally break through. Here's the song for good measure! This Manning bursa sac thing doesn't seem like a big deal, but we kinda think the Colts might be past their one shining moment.

WHO MIGHT BE MVP? Start here. Then consider this dude. Young, but good. Logical candidate as well. Can LJ bounce back this year? This picture, by the way, is incredible. LJ's boss is her husband! We don't know why, but we'll add Carson Palmer to this discussion. And for some reason, Julius Jones.

OTHER THEMES OF THE YEAR What happens with Brett? What happens in Holmgren's final season in the Pacific NW? Can the Giants make it all the way back? Can Alex Smith shake the bust label under Mike Martz? Which rookie will be the best? Can the Bengals manage their talent properly? Are Braylon and the Browns ready for the spotlight?
