My pick: Fred Taylor. Will rush for 80 yds. at least.
Brandon Meriweather. I think he is going to have a breakout season.
Last year he didn't move into the starting lineup until Rodney got hurt and he still had 4 picks, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 9 passes defensed and 80-some tackles. He has looked fast and more confident in the preseason, and he can make the jump to big-time player.
Derrick Burgess. 1.5 sacks, several key pressures, and possibly a forced fumble.
Gary Guyton and Ron Brace
Hes my pick too. Tremendous talent who knows the defense. I'm glad hes here.
Good call. Football Outsiders still had Burgess as one of the best at applying pressure (QB hurries) last season, in spite of his injuries and missing games. I'm hoping that translates to sacks over here in NE.
I like Ron Brace breaking out - playing 3-4 DE and 4-3 DT
next to Wilfork, helping to collapse the pocket and totally shut down the run.
I agree. People forget, he was in his second week with the Pats and practicing in general when he played his first preseason game with the Pats. He will have 5 weeks under his belt by the time he lines up Monday night.
I think the Bills are a better team then what they showed in the preseason.
Back in the pre-season they had a different LT and an offensive co-ordinator.
This thread makes me want to shoot myself w enough tranquilizers to put me asleep until exactly 7:00PM Monday nite, EST. I'm sure thats probably not a healthy thought.
No kidding. Monday is gonna be VERY unproductive.
He would be my pick too. From the 28 practices I attended he looked like the most improved and made plays daily I expect big things out of him this year.
But not sure if really qualifies as under the radar so I will go with Springs who we haven't seen much of in our uni and he is supposed to be really good vs TO.
Myron Pryor - Two sacks in garbage time.
Edelman if Welker is out!
my votes are for Guyton and Meriweather.
Brandon Meriweather and I hope Shawn Springs
I'm going to say Leigh Bodden, though it won't be a "breakout" per se. With Shawn Springs covering T.O., I think Bodden is going to shut his man down.
We NEED a tight end!
Tom Brady, he's as under the radar as he ever gets.
Under the radar and stepping up Monday?
Yes. Maroney will remind everybody that he is the #1 runningback on the Patriots.
I'll have to second the Baker call - it would be great to have another consistent red zone target. I'd LOVE it if Galloway busted out, but I don't think we'll see him make a difference until week 3 or so.
I think Aiken is going to have a really good game as the 4th WR and ST demon. If the Bills play zone in the back 7, the LBers will have to play close to the LOS to account for Welker and/or maybe Faulk. With Moss being doubled and Galloway hopefully running go routes all night, that leaves Aiken with single coverage against a safety in the middle of the field.
Your crazy....I like you, but your crazy.....
With 2 speedy outside targets the middle of the field should have some open holes. I will go with Watson having a big night.
