[QUOTE=greenwichjetfan;3648094]How is Nate Burleson on the sleep heap? He's had 7 seasons to "come into his own" and the only time he was a marginal threat was when he had culpepper heaving it downfield to him.
Plus, he's obviously going to have a good season with the best reciever in the game opposite of him getting all the attention.[/QUOTE]
Nobody set the rules as "tagged busts coming into their own"
btw: Yes Brady has sucked so far, but I think with a new staff (one that he's probably somewhat familiar with due to the mcdaniels/weiss connection), he'll be able to put it all together in a way he couldn't do in Cleveland.
Going into this season I am looking at Detroit to have a breakout season as a team, not making the playoffs but I wouldnt be surprised to see them end with 7-8 wins, the Raiders I could see getting 7-8 wins as well.
For players, I like the Stafford to Johnson combo to BLOW UP this year. Last year they both showed potential, but CJ being banged up for most of the year was a disapointment overall, Im looking for these two to have big seasons this year.

That'll be quite an accomplishment without Brandon Marshall. Name one other receiver off the top of your head who's going to help him come into his own.
[QUOTE=JetsCrazey;3647924]Gholston will be strictly a 3rd down pass rushing specialist. He may succeed in that role, especially with the focus going to Calvin Pace/Jason Taylor. I'm still hoping we get Adalius Thomas too[/QUOTE]
ANYTHING (and I mean [B]ANYTHING[/B]) out of Gholston this year will be a bonus in my eyes.
I would love picking up Adalius Thomas as well, he can provide depth at the ILB and OLB positions for our defense. If the Jets dont go after him, then I believe that says something about the young guys we have trying to make the 53 man roster. There are lots of potential with Kenwin Cummings, Josh Mauga, Ezra Butler, Cory Reamer and Jamaal Westerman, if atleast one of these guys shines and can become a solid rotational and special teams player for us it will be huge for our depth.
