Which player are you most intrigued/excited about?

65 posts in this topic

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:

 

20130108_mjr_su5_017.0_standard_352.0.jp

 

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.

There are several potential standouts for me: Kenjon Barner, Robert Lester, Star and Kawaan, among them. Of the vets, I'm eager to see the attitude Mike Mitchell and Drayton Florence will bring the the backfield. I also think this will be a breakout year for LaFell, and that we'll see a credible special teams group for the first time in a long time.

I've been a supporter of Armanti Edwards from the beginning, so of course I'm excited for AE. Garry Williams is another guy who I am excited to see at RG, and we might give him a shot at RT as well (my opinion).

Gano is going to be interesting.  Did you know he was born in Scotland? Trivia

It's gotta be Jon Beason for me.  Can't wait to see him back out there proving his doubters wrong!

the biggest piece added will be Hixion and Ginn. Seeing Hixon, Lafell and Smith in 3 WR sets will be nice.  Cant wait to see the return game come back to life with Ginn back there.

He hit a 63 yarder yesterday with plenty of room to spare.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
