Things I hope I'm right about: * I think Volek will peform better than many people think. He has waited a long time and knows this is his chance to earn a legitimate shot to be a starter somewhere; * Travis Henry will look a lot more like his pre-injury Buffalo self than he did last year; * Roos will quietly become a very effective left tackle; * The back seven on defense will be much improved in all three areas. Hope and Thompson will do fine, Pacman and Hill will take the expected second-year leap, and the linebacker play will be the most improved position on the field. I think we'll shore up the CBs with a waiver pick up late into camp; * Givens will make a huge difference on offense. He's a real pro, he's big and he doesn't blow catches. He'll have a big effect on the young guys if they will emulate his route running and the way he works. Things I hope I'm wrong about: * I've had a nagging feeling that Lendale White is going to get hurt in camp and limp around long enough that he won't truly be ready for game one; * I think Vince Young is going to look really good in pre-season games against reserves playing simplified defensive formations, and fans are going to get crazy impatient wanting to see him start. He needs and deserves some time to learn real NFL defenses; * I'm not sure we've done nearly enought to improve either line. I do think Mawae will be a great addition, but I'm not nearly as high on Jacob Bell as some. He has done an adequate job under some tough circumstances, but I've seen nothing of him that makes me believe he'll help the offensive line take a step up. Piller and Olsen looked to be about done last year. Let's hope the renewed emphasis on the running game rejuvenates them. * The same could be said for the defensive line. Losing Long certainly doesn't help. He was a good pass rusher and was getting better against the run. Hopefully Mahelona will step up and Clauss is ready to contribute more. It's also time for Starks to step up and start realizing some of that potential, and hopefully Albert will have dollar signs in his eyes and want to have a monster year to get a new contract before his final year next season.
