Hey guys i just wanted to make a thread about the top 5 players you are excited to watch in Preseason and why? Well Ill go first. Here is the guys im excited to watch.
5. Mike Wallace: Theres no Substitute for speed. Nuff Said.
4. Ryan Mundy: After getting hurt early in the pre-season last year we never really got to see what this kid was made of. He has been practicing with the first team and from reports ppl are saying he looks very good.
3. Stefan Logan: I have always loved Darren Sproles and have longed to see a player like him on the Steelers. Also from reports he has looked very quick and agile and is very similar to sproles (maybe not the same ability but he is still good) I live in Canada so i watch CFL and while he played with the B.C lions i got to see some of his games and he always reminded me of sproles. Remember that the CFL is a much bigger field and players are smaller but very quick.
2. Rashard Mendenhall/Limas Sweed: These two picks excited me so much last year but that faded away through the 08 season. Rashard got hurt early but showed some flashes in that Ravens game. He can do everything and im just excited to see him. Limas Sweed was a beast in college and i think he will take over the game. You could mention his catching skills but if you look at his college highlights he never had trouble. I think it was just him being nervous and thinking to much.
1. Dennis Dixon: Its gotta be this guy b/c of the excitement he brings to the table and the skills he has. His running skill overshadow his throwing skills a lot, i think this can is a very good passing QB and obviously has amazing running ability. In last years preseason he showed very good flashes ( Especially in the Buffalo game in toronto, I was there BTW hehe). Such as his 4 down run, where he ran like 50 yards for a touchdown. He also had a couple a good throws on the last drive of the game. Pumped to see this guy and i hope he wins #2 Qb so we can see him on the field if BB gets hurt.
Honourable Mentions: Frank The Tank, Rookie Corners, Ziggy
What about you guys??
