In response to his comments on the BS Report and
-Kenny Phillip's injury HAS to be mentioned. He has real star potential, and I think in recent years we have seen how much of an impact a top flight safety can make.
-I wouldn't say Chris Canty is necessarily a key... I would say ANY defensive tackle stepping up would be huge. I can't tell you how many times last year QB's would get pressure on the outside from Osi/Tuck/Kiwanuka only to be able to step up in the pocket because of no interior pressure.
-Finally, I have to mention the offense... Eli had his best statistical year despite a poor season from the running game and a terrible defense not getting him the ball back much (although one might argue that playing from behind all the time may have inflated his stats!). I really look forwarded to a rebound year from Jacobs and Bradshaw along with these young receivers having another year of experience under their belts. Can "Steve Smith 2.0" get any love??
