Default Another meaningless question.......

Who will be the MOST improved player from 2016-- in your mind?

Who will be the biggest disappointment from 2016 -- in your mind?

Rookies of course excluded since they were not here last year!!

I'm going with, maybe the obvious but I think Wentz will shine this year due to the improvement of the entire WR core.

Biggest disappointment? I'm thinking maybe Peters on the O-line. I just injury and age are gonna catch up to him. Hope I'm wrong that as of today that is what I see.

I don't know about Wentz being the MOST improved, but he sure as hell had not better take a step backwards or we're back in QB hell! You're right about the receivers though, it takes 2 to tango.

Disappointment? I'll go with Trey Burton who I think is the most overrated player that we've seen in years.

Improved I think that I'm going to say Kendricks.

Most improved - Vinny Curry

Biggest Disappointment - Torrey Smith (I just don't think there's enough balls to go around to give him the kind of numbers that people are projecting. So I don't think it will really be his fault, but that won't stop people from being disappointed.)

I think most improved may be Mathews. He will thrive as a #2. As a group, I think LB will disappoint.

Alright, alright. Hicks will disappoint this year; largely due to injury. He will become our Sean Lee

Ok, I'll play.

Most improved - Jalen Mills. I like this kid. He's a competitor with a short memory.
Runner up (if I'm allowed) - Vinny Curry. I'm hoping that a combination of being healthy and having better talent around him will make the difference.

Biggest disappointment - Alshon Jeffery. He'll be good and an upgrade but I don't think he'll be the dominant player like some are expecting.
runner up - Rodney McLoed. Just not a big fan of his.

I think Mills takes a step forward this year and establishes himself as a quality corner. Disappointment; I'm not sure Wentz can live to the hype being heaped on him even though he has a good year. But I will say Brandon Graham. He may be okay but he is also getting hype as a great hope for the year
