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.

Mike Mitchell on defense and Brandon Williams' untapped potential.

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.

I hope Gano can play as well in games as he does in practice. I miss the days where we didnt have to worry about a kicker.

Kenjon Barber and Brandon Williams. The more solid contributors to this offense the better.

I am excited about Lafell this year, I think he is going to come together.  I am really pulling for AE but I do not want to get very excited about him again just to be let down.
