It doesn't matter that we already said before the season starts that the over-expectation is going to happen; there's just no stopping it.

Two things.
  1. Want to see flash
    Most of the complaints I've heard is that they haven't seen so much as a "flash." Flash being very hard to define.
  2. Aldon Smith
    Going into week 16 Aldon Smith, who never started, already had 13 sacks

We're probably spoiled with the likes of Mario Williams & Jj Watt as our dominant pass rushers for the last 7 years.

Which rookie will shine today?

I want all of them to do well, but I must admit, I'd like to see what the thumper Brandon can do.

Hopefully, a repeat by Posier, too.

I've seen him get the edge a few times, not consistent enough to get excited about.

But Luck, Brady, & Locker not getting out to improvise should be seen as a mini victory.
I wouldnt throw Brady into that mini victory category just saying
