Tell Chris your opinion.

Scrimmages were heavy around the league after several days or weeks of training camp, and some interesting reports are in. Here are some notes from scrimmages in the NFL this past week:

Baltimore Ravens: In a scrimmage against the Washington Redskins, four of QB Steve McNair's first five pass attempts went to TE Todd Heap. If you remember, McNair always threw to his tight ends in Tennessee.

Cincinnati Bengals: QB Carson Palmer was 4-of-9 for 57 yards and a touchdown on Friday. It was his first serious action since injuring his ACL in the playoffs. His first four passes were incomplete, meaning he finished the night 4-of-5 after he found his rhythm. He threw a 37-yard pass to WR Chris Henry, and his touchdown pass came on a 6-yard throw to RB Tab Perry.

Dallas Cowboys: Even without WR Terrell Owens, backup QB Drew Henson was impressive, going 12-of-15 for 129 yards. The defense played well, including DeMarcus Ware and Terrence Newman.

Green Bay Packers: QB Brett Favre performed very well in the Packers' scrimmage. Favre was 9-of-13 for 119 yards, and already showed chemistry with WR Donald Driver and WR Greg Jennings. Jennings, a rookie, showed a lot of potential to possible become one of Favre's new favorite targets. The running game struggled, although Najeh Davenport and Ahman Green were not playing.

New York Jets: QB Chad Pennington was solid in the Jets' scrimmage. He was 12-of-14 for 117 yards, which is an outstanding completion percentage. Pennington is competing for the starting job after all of his shoulder problems the past few seasons. QB Patrick Ramsey and the rest of the backups were not nearly as impressive as Pennington, who threw the ball long with ease.

New Orleans Saints: Although RB Deuce McAllister was the starting back, RB Reggie Bush saw more playing time since the Saints ran a lot of passing plays from the backfield.
