A feel good thread on an awesome Sunday...plus, I haven't made a thread in a while so anyhoo:
Who are you most excited about this coming season?
For me?...this guy:
I just think the piece he fits into is crucial in the type of offense we want to build around Cam.
If we are working toward having a balanced yet dynamic offense, this is the type of player that can really excel. I think Tolbert takes more of a backseat/primarily goal line/short down role. Plus, if Stewart or DeAngelo happen to miss a game or two, he will get substantial playing time.
Honestly, I think getting essentially a scat-back was just as vital as having a 4th receiving option behind Smitty, Olsen, and LaFell. Beyond them, it was Louis Murphy with 25 receptions out of Cam's combined 280 completions. Tolbert had more receptions than our 4th receiving option and I see Barner moving into that role.
Beyond the team, this is the player I'm really hoping can do well. It will help our offense out tremendously and limit our 3rd downs or at least shorten them and help us close out games.
Honorable Mentions: Frank Alexander's 2nd year, Kuechly and Cam becoming THE leaders of this team, Amini
Oh I'm actually buying the Armanti hype. Year 4 baby.
