In response to BubbaInHawaii's comment:
Brandon Bolden, Shane Vereen, Steve Ridley - Collectively, above expectations...except mebbe Vereen who is more often injured than on field.
Brandon Lloyd - Met expectations. Works sidelines very well - but sometimes observed stepping out early instead of fighting for extra yard. Doesn't lengthen the field that many fans had hoped - but I did not have that expectation of him.
Steve Gregory - serviceable, but I was hoping for more.
Dont'a Hightower - not sure yet
Alfonso Dennard - not sure yet
Chandler Jones - exceeded expectations only because he's a rookie, and I expect him to have good and bad games. Pass rush not as good as hoped against better tackles.
Nate Ebner - met expectations as a rookie. Shows heart.
Bolden is undrafted so he's already into bonus points, could be real, real good.
Vereen? Who the hell knows I have seen him what...less than 6 times?
Ridley is gonna be just fine, put a check in that box.
Lloyd was a slow starter but you gotta like what you see lately.
Gregory....looks to be afraid of contact if you ask me, I'll give him a few more games.
Hightower, put 2 checks in that box, that kid is gonna be great.
Dennard, we'll see, very early, give him some time, I like his courage so far.
Jones, see Hightower, Kid is getting held on every play yet he keeps fighting. Get him some help for criss sakes. Crash the middle/end with Jones, Wilfork AND BLITZ A SAFETY
Ebner, Sure...love the kid's heart but at some point he's gotta show he can play football. See above paragraph...he would be the perfect safety blitzer, give em a shot.
I am very pleased with Spikes this year.
I want to see more from Mayo.
Still pizzed over BB treatment of Welker but life goes on.
The D backs are what they are. Perhaps you could talk Dallas into moving Jenkins as they don't care for each other. Otherwise the hand has been dealt.
You must rush the passer better and or bring the blitz or your D backs will continue to struggle.
Oh...and Brady is fine.
Is it Sunday yet?
