Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

I say Mix purley because I think its easier for an average WR to have an impact, against an average defensive end. In addition, Mix is something that we don't have anywhere else on the team and thats a big target on offense. So he'll get more looks based strictly off that alone, and it will be much easier for them to shine. If Mix can be a contributor on offense, I think its a successful season for him. He wont need to have 900 yards and 8 TD's to make an impact. If he can just get open across the middle on some key third down situations, I'll be happy. A guy like Wilson has it a little tougher, because an average WR can still exploit different coverage schemes and poor defensive schemes, when Wilson will have to go one on one with some really good tackles week in and week out, and one on one, it will be tougher for him....If that makes sense.

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

Wilson has been working with Blache since day one. Mix has to adapt to a new offense with a new OC and HC that is very offensive minded. I am not saying that Mix will not succeed, just that Wilson has a better shot at having a "breakout" season. Frankly, I hope for 10+ sacks for Wilson and 800+ yards for Mix, thus making them both breakout players.

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

Tough one, but I'll pick Mix, mostly for reasons already stated. The draft will tell us a lot. The success of Zorn's WCO and injury will also be a factor.

Wilson has been on the roster basically as a specialist, no? If the Skins go with a DE in Round 1 (as I hope), he'll have even more competition at his position. I'm sure he'll contribute, but isn't it likely that it will be mostly in situational formations?

Mix has potential as the "big target" we've all heard about. Will he fit into the new offense? Tough to tell, but if the Skins pick a DB in Round 2 (and I hope it'll one who can return punts), shouldn't that give Mix the edge on his competition?

On the other hand, Wilson is a known commodity -- and a valuable one. Until camp, or at least until the draft, talk of Mix is mainly speculation.

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

I think that we've actually seen Wilson produce. Not to say that Mix can't, I just can't see him bringing the same level that Wilson does, hopefully I'll be proven wrong. Any updates on Wilson's strength and size so far?

Forget Mix, I'm riding the Manningham wave all the way to the draft. Wilson gets my vote.

I'm going to go w/ Rocky Mac. I know he's coming off surgery but he's young and talented. I think we'll see a big year from him.

Rocky Mac has degenerative knees. He has 2 years left max, if he fully recovers this time. This is the second tear in both knees from what I've read. It's sad, he's still a baby too. So sad.

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

Is this what it's come down to for Skins fans?

The team that once spent boatloads of cash on star free agents are now picking over two no-name scrubs to see who might have a good year??

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

Anthony Mix is just big reciever that nobody wanted and the only reason we signed him is because he is 6'5. I would love to see him have a good season as I would for any player on my favorite team. But I think the real question is: will Anothony Mix make the roster?

Re: Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll

I think he'll make the roster if only for his special teams play.
