    I don't want to talk about the teams that re-establish themselves this season; I want to talk about the players and coaches. Correction: I want to talk about the players and coaches who must re-establish themselves.

    Usually, they're quarterbacks, and always for the same reasons. Someone's fallen out of love with them because they throw too many interceptions or can't win big ballgames or don't aim enough passes to T.O.

    There, I said it: T.O . Now we can begin the season and take nominations from the floor for the next NFL commissioner.

    In the meantime, I'll offer my own nominations for the NFL's Guys on the Spot, 10 figures who need to make something happen this year to advance their careers, their teams both.

    They are the few. The proud. The vulnerable. And they're here:

    5. Marty Schottenheimer, head coach, San Diego: Poor Marty. He turns the Chargers around, wins a division championship and now has a gun pointed to his head -- with a win-or-else note attached to it. Schottenheimer and general manager A.J. Smith don't agree on a lot of things, and one of them was their quarterback. Schottenheimer wanted to keep Drew Brees; Smith thought Brees' shoulder injury made him a risk. So Brees left, and Schottenheimer is next if things don't work out. Team president Dean Spanos already said he expects this year's club to reach the playoffs, but how do you do that with a quarterback who hasn't started a game? Schottenheimer has a year to produce an answer.

    Marty has to get us deep in the playoffs. I do not want to see him go - yet. We need consistency at the HC position. Marty is a good teacher and motivator.

    If PR falters, I guarantee you AJ will still blame the coaching. I'm really praying that our pass D improves as advertised and that PR does well. I'll be sweating bullets....then again, I always do. That's part of the passion I guess.

    John Ramsdell (QB coach) and Jack Henry (O-Line coach) will make huge impacts I predict.
