Who needs to step it up the most???

Who needs to step up their game a few notches (or more) for us to be considered a contender. Not just play better, but noticably improve.

Here's my list, in order of impact...

1. Jonathan Sullivan, he's been moved to the nose to become a 2-gapper. Its what we drafted him for. Pease should iron out his technique and consistency problems. He has the ability to make EVERYONE on the defense better. If improves similarly to other 2nd year DT's we should be fine.

2. Donte Stallworth, 3rd year is usually the year stud WR's blossom and muscle pulls and cramps decrease. He presents some devastating match-up problems for other teams to deal with. He's not just fast, but he's strong too. Thru you or over you, its your choice.

3. SLB- Either Hodge or Allen need to take this job and run with it. Hodge gets a mulligan due to breaking his leg and missing 9 games, but I have a feeling one will remain (LB not leg) after 2004, the other may be gone soon. I also wonder if Darrin Smith could challenge for this spot?

The whole team actually needs to play better, but the above guys really need to kick it into a noticably higher gear, and I feel they are quite capable. McAllister Horn, Brooks, Pathon, Boo, Conwell, Tebucky, Charles Grant, and Carney just need to bring their A game and they'll be fine.

I agree with those picks. I would add:

4. Tebucky Jones.

5. Grant, Watson, or whoever plays MLB.

6. Howard - just stay healthy man.

7. Jason Craft - we really need someone to take control of our secondary.

8. AB - it\'s time to prove you\'re worth that money amigo.

I by all accounts would be classified a Brooks basher. So I am going to say that forgetting stupid errors,fumbles, lack of maturity and leadership, the entire receving squad needs to pick it up. Deuce definetly set our offense up for the pass and we need to capitalize in that area.
