JC et al still under the radar...

The link below caught my attention & I had to read it - 9 breakout stars for 2007.
Of course I was looking for skins, namely JC, maybe Rocky. In a way I'm glad this list is as such.

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Schein's nine breakout stars for 2007

Also, a typical John Clayton article - all based on stats - but he has a point IMO. Notice his mention of the Skins. I think he's right about us & the company he puts us in.

Re: JC et al still under the radar...

I don't see anyway we don't improve significantly on our defense last year (we really have nowhere to go but up, unless we end up DEAD last), and with our qb working hard and learning the system, I'm looking forward to surprising some people.

Seriously, the closer we get to preseason, the more confident I am feeling. Something about this team just feels right this year.

Re: JC et al still under the radar...

What has JC done to be in the radar let alone in close proximity? You either have it or you don't. We'll find out this season if JC has IT.

Yup I'm feeling same thing but still no high hopes

He played well last year i thought, he certainly looked poised for a qb playing his first nfl games. the point of the article is about emerging players that a of now aren't starts or big names. I think he's done more than Chad Greenway to make the list!

Re: JC et al still under the radar...

I mean we are all skins fans so we know JC's game very intimately and thats why we have high hopes. However, if you are a neutral person who doesn't pay that much attention to the skins u have to go on the stats and his stats weren't all that impressive so I'm not surprised that he isn't making any of these lists. But who cares, he'll show em up

this is a great way to put it. i like the fact that Campbell has ben a winner at every level. seems like some players just know how to win

We don't know if he has "it," but one thing we can say is that he didn't blow/lose any games for us last year as many young guys in his position would have.

Thanks, I've been looking at the warpath since last season; don't know why I waited so long to join. I work in an office with a huge Dallas fan AND a huge NYG fan, so this should be a nice refuge for me!

Re: JC et al still under the radar...

Attempting to put bias aside, I think he has IT, based on what we've seen thus far. He's drawn some praise from scouts & media along the way, but never been touted as a big time qb. I even remember Peter King saying how good he looked in workouts before the draft in 05 & how surprised he was that more coaches & scouts didn't rank him higher.

Think about our recent past, can you say that you feel any better about a Skins qb since Brad Johnson?

Re: JC et al still under the radar...

If they were being honest with themselves, many would say that they felt this way about Ramsey (I among them). I loved what I saw of JC last year AND the buzz that seems to surround him. With Ramsey, I really liked what I saw but am not sure if there was quite the same "Wow" factor we are getting from some of the current players for JC. I think all the players liked Ramsey, thought he had a great arm, and admired his work ethic - I just don't remember quotes and compliments on his accuracy and ability to anticipate.

Hopefully, this will not be a replay of the Ramsey era - high hopes and disappointment. I see significant differences between the two - but I also see some similarities.

For the time I am simply crossing my fingers and cautiously hopeful.
