    I'd take that season, especially New England in the SB.

    The biggest surprise on the list for me was A. Wilson.  I thought he was having a really good camp, or am I mistaken?

    They're not saying he's gonna be cut, just that he'd be the biggest surprise cut out of the veterans.

    Then I suppose that the list, at least in that particular item, works for me.

    Wilson is what he is. Smart vet, knows the position i side and out, big hitter, can play LB which is interesting. He is a step to a step and a half slow in coverage, similar to Gregory and Tavon Wilson. I said last week I think Wilson makes the team, but would not surprise me if he was cut. Tavonmaking it easy for Adrian, but still a long way to go

    Why dont you ever discuss football rather than trolling? You are putting down Brady or b**l washing BB, why. Because you have nothing when it comes to discussing football. Go complain about Brady on the Jets board you troll or go complain about the anti BB media over at ESPN

    In response to APpats21's comment:

    Rusty you do know that they don't think Adrian Wilson will be cut right?... They just put him in the catagory because he would be the biggest surprise if he was cut...



    It's actually somewhere between the two. They are saying he is the most likely to be cut who would be a surprise. I think there is a loong list of players that would be much more shocking to see cut: Wilfork, Brady, Gronk, Mayo, et al. 

    I don't think the writer is going out on a limb on most of those predictions though. With Gronk out, Ridley is the next most likely to lead in TDs. Amendola will be in the Welker role more or less, so of course he'll get the most catches. Wilson has a tremendous resume, but is coming off a bad season, so it's kind of an easy pick to pencil him in. Dobson plays a position that is hard to get into, and he really only projects as one possible role in that regard: flanker. Tavon Wilson wasn't very good last season, so it's not really a stretch to project him to develop flatly. NE has been working Vereen in more and more since last season, so projecting him to "break out" is pretty easy, too. Edelman is always injured. Connoly is the O-line weak link and already getting beat out in camp. Everyone and their dog expects Chandler Jones to be a monster this season. A lot of people are surprised Dowling is not cut already. Etc etc etc.

    The only prediction I thought took guts was the Jamie Collins one. The WRs have a much clearer path .... I think either Dobson, Thomkins, or Boyce will be the most impactful rookie. Collins has a stacked DE and LB crew to play through, has been working on his feet which is tougher than on his hands, and might not get the most playing time unless he develops really quickly. 

    The 13-3 is a good number. I'm worried more about the matchup against New Orleans than Baltimore, because they seem to have NE's number and really match up well against them. I realize they don't play often (4 years is a bit of time) but really, the last time they played it wasn't close. I agree the Falcons will be a hurdle and a half. They are a good team, and NE will be playing into its identity at that point.

    Well yeah that's what i mean. I just don't feel like writing that much hahahaha and yeah the Collins pick was interesting. I figured it'd be Dobson or Thompkins. Especially since they have Thompkins as a breakout offensive star.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    I think Thompkins is surprising everyone out there. Sure he wasn't the fastest or the biggest. But hey, triangle numbers are not the end all, be all. 

    Anquan Boldin posted a 4.7 40 and Larry Fitz was a 4.5 40 yard guy. 

    If the kid is getting reps it means he can contribute.

    I like the list but no way does Brady lead the NFL in pasiing TDs with 37? Someone throws at least 40--Manning, Brees, Rodgers?

    What's not to like about this list?  If I had to question one thing, it would be Tennessee as a Surprise Play Off Team.  The main reason would be the Titans/Jets Game last year in which both teams were trying their best to lose.  Of course, the Jets won the Losing Battle.  But Tenn was almost as horrible.
