I like the underdog angle with Diles. I really like the LB squad on paper. I can't wait to see them in action.

I have to agree. Besides, the guy barely saw the field last season and he's penciled in as the starter. If that continues he'll see some good time.

I picked Jacoby, talent wise he's 2nd only to AJ in our WR corps. He's got special qualities, elite size/speed combo. If his head can catch up to his skills he can be a great playmaker for us at WR and on special teams as a PR like we saw last preseason.

Okoye was a close 2nd but I think the jump for Jacoby will be bigger than Okoye's jump. If however Okoye plays at an elite level then I think our defense as a whole will play at an elite level. We've seen how much difference a defense plays with/without an elite DT like Haynesworth and Tommie Harris in a game. It can literally change the entire makeup of the defense.

I voted Jacoby. Coming into last year the majority of us thought that his rookie season would be filled with highlight reel moments. Now going into his 2nd year the term "deep threat" has been thrown around and, if AJ, Walter, and OD can remain healthy, he could see a few bombs come his way, JJ is the vote.

I voted Jacoby. I read that he is now studying the playbook - good thinking. I also think that the coaches have told him that not playing up to his potential = not playing period. I think he has matured enough this past year and has decided that football is more important than his other activities.

Bennet is a close second. I think he is going to be awesome this year.

Default Re: Most Improved Player for 09

i voted amobi but i should have voted jacoby because amobi was half way productive. i expect him to be much better. jones on the other hand was pretty much useless (after he got hurt) so i'd expect him to improve much more than amobi will. simply because okoye has already played well.

I'm hoping it's Jacoby Jones - I hope the small-school jitters (and injury worries) are a thing of the past.

Schaub - If he stays healthy, it's a given.

Amobi - He was already 'ascendant' - I'm not expecting a Mario-like change in impact, but just below that level.

I voted for Jacoby for one simple reason -
He's talent-laden for sure and after last season's disappointing year, I think he stands to "improve" the most.
