AJ, DeMeco, Bruener and Daniels. The rest of them should be cut.

Lol right. Since this is Madden and all, and we can just trade them all for 1st round picks...

As hard as it is to vote for anyone on defense, I chose Demeco Ryans because he's made fewer rookie mistakes than I would have expected to this point and at least he gives me hope. AJ is playing well, but he is making too many drops for a 4th-year WR that is supposed to be thought of as "elite". Carr has improved, and I am encouraged, but he can't consistently handle a basic center snap exchange.

I was going to say Demeco Ryans because he has done so well but I kind of expected that...


Carr on the other hand to me has done alot better of a job but still cant do as well because his line is once again not that great...Under the circumstances carr gets my vote

I think several like AJ and Daniels have been great suprises, but I went with Ryans. For a Rookie LB (who is basically playing out of position) to be all over the field is very impressive.

Ryan @MLB, some said no way he could play the position. Charles Spencer beats out two veterans (Wand and Salaam) but gets hurt. Daniels, no way I thought he'd start ahead of Putzier.

Default Re: Who has been the brightest spot?

The brightest spot IMO has to be Ryan. A rookie MLB, starting and taking charge.

Biggest surprise that they are doing well:

Carr - didn't think he would improve this much this fast

Daniels - didn't think a 4th rounder would wind up moving Putz over

I've got to give it to AJ.

With Demecco on the field on what seems to be around 70% of the time, its easy to accumulate stats and especially at the middle linebacker position.

Default Re: Who has been the brightest spot?

There were three choices for me: AJ, Demeco, and Carr. I chose Carr simply because he has stepped his game up so much since last season. I know many of you have chosen him as your scapegoat for the way the season has started, and you people are tards. David Carr has produced more than we could have asked him to. He's always under pressure, and has put up respectable numbers. The running game isn't producing at all, and our defense can't stop anybody. The Offensive Line is trash, but D. Carr has gone above and beyond expectations with this team.

To answer your question, AJ has played the best thus far.

Carr has shown the most improvement and DeMeco and Daniels have both been impressive as rookies.

sorry but it's not the BASIC exchange that gets mishandled, its a trick cadence snap that you have to practice repeatedly. its a snap OFF cadence and its not easy if both people are not in sync, as many of these can be blamed on the center as are blamed on carr. not to mention the snaps that are fumbled cuz the center or guard steps on the QB's foot. if I were you I would be more woried about our defense that cant stop a 3rd and 21.
