Well it's that time of the year. Only about 7 months to go until opening week kick-off. And yes, it will be a long 7 months.

So what is your favourite part of the off-season?

if you ask me, all of the events build on each other...free agency, combine, then the draft...bit by bit you begin to see your team take shape for the next season...this year i'm paying extra special attention to the draft (because i have nothing better to do). the packers have four first day picks, so it should be a fun draft for a change...training camp is fun to pay attention to, but pre-season gets tedious because you want the seaon to start.

Usually like the draft,but as DB48 states above the giants gave up their first.
So it lost a little.

Free agency should be interesting.

DB48 was referring to the Bills. They, like the Giants, dont have a first either.

I'm looking forward to the draft because I'm hoping this is a rare time the 49ers have the 1st overall pick. Plus I doubt theyre going to make any big FA signings so the draft is the only thing to look forward to from a 49ers fan POV.

Haven't Niners fans been looking forward to the draft since TO left town?

Free agency for me. Interesting to see what key players go where.

i cant wait for draft day...i've been at work for the past three, and i must have had baseball for the years before that because the last draft i've had time to sit down and watch was 1999 with mcnabb, couch, etc..

Well when they pretty much gutted the roster, I dont think any of us were looking forward to a 10+ loss season.

Easily the draft. It's fun to see who Bill Belichick is going to pluck out of obscurity to be a major contributor on a championship team.

In the last 4 years, some of the most important players on the team have been late picks. Givens was a 7th, Koppen was I believe a 5th or 6th, and the list goes on.

Easily...free agency. My team never has a top 10 pick, and this years draft class is weak anyways.

Free agency is awesome because so many good players are up for grabs.

I like all parts of the offseason but I would probably say that Free Agency is my favorite. It's always fun to see guys go to different teams and see what they can do.

Draft has to be #1....I enjoy the FA rumors, especially the first couple weeks of free agency, but the draft is the best. I'm thinking that I'm going to be even more draft geeked this year with no hockey....I can't wait to buy the Sporting News Draft Preview Magazine......
