Never to early to start thinking about what team or what player is going be the surprise package or the main force next season, especially if you play Fantasy Football.
My main sleeper next season would be Jerome Harrison (Cleveland Browns) at RB, Browns not have much of a passing game and will lean on him a lot. He looked very capable to handle a large work load.
Receiver position should be interesting, especially in Arizona. Can Fitzgerald or Boldin be both good fantasy options with Leinart starting? I personally don't think both of them will put up big numbers.
Other people I like as potential sleepers;
Jamaal Charles RB (Chiefs)
Trent Edwards QB (Bills - if he's the starter that is)
49ers DST (depends on what they do in off-season)
I think either Bills or Chiefs could surprise a few people next year, I see decent seasons for both of them.
do you's agree? an who you's think be the surprise player/teams?
well this is awesome 0 replies and post above has 17 at time I post this. eh well, worth a try.
Hey Shaun. Sometimes sports threads are slow to take off.
I like Jerome Harrison to have a break out season next year and Jamal Charles to be the main RB in Kansas City.
As for hot team, I am going with Green Bay. They were really playing well at the end of this year. I believe they will be a NFC title contender next year. And look for Aaron Rodgers be to at the top also.
Surprise team? Hmmm, hard one there. The off season can make such a difference. I will have to go with the 49'ers.
Michael, you make a good point here. I think Green Bay has a real shot next season...I believe they need to improve their offensive line to give Rodgers a chance back there.
And San Fran, ehh...They have a great defense and possess a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball with Gore, Davis, and Crabtree, but like a lot of teams, they need a QB.
totally agree, Green Bay's offensive line is there weak point but seems to me Green Bay coaching staff/general manager, are wise enough to identify there needs and fix them. So I'm thinking they sort there line out with there 1st round draft pick or in free agency.
Hey Shaun. . funny thing these forums . . one never knows what or when something is going to get responses. .
As for next season. . I bleed Blue. .typical ordinary New York girl here. . and the Giants are my first love. . . grew up a Jet fan but after having my heart broken by them numerous times I try not to look at them . .but I got to give them a litte shout out here for they were the CInderella team of 2009/10 . .and I think with the numero uno defense in the league and with Mark Sanchez having a season under his belt . they will be a contender next season . .and for all those Rex Ryan haters out there . . I ♥ him . .he was great to see in the News every day!!
hey Michael, I'm a Bears fan, so would never say Green Bay lol but yeah I am very wary of them next season. More wary of Green Bay than Minnesota to be honest.
Don't think 49ers have the offence to make an impact but there DST is strong, an we all know DST's can win championships. Maybe 49ers DST carry them to playoffs but there offence stops them going to superbowl.
I said on twitter after the Jets/Colts team, that I can see Sanchez and Ryan becomming a head coach/QB combo that win a few superbowls together. So totally agree on Jets, don't see much success for Giants next season though.
I always like the Giants, although they didn't do it this year. I'm a bit biased on the 49ers, but I think they'll be a playoff team next year.
I think hire off Perry Fewell will certainly get there DST back on track but I'm just not convinced on there offence now. Losing Burress and not re-signing Derrick Ward has really hurt there offence.
Not convinced on 49ers at QB but they will have Crabtree going through whole of training camp this season. That should help at WR, which they have been weak at for many seasons now.
Shaun...I agree with you on Buffalo...I think they just need a totally different QB...and keep TO in check...
If, and this is a big if, the Texans could get a freakin defense, I think they would be a real contender. And I don't get it, they always draft huge defensive prospects...no results.
Another team to watch...Carolina...Again, they also need a more reliable QB..Delhomme just isn't cutting it.
Good call on the Texans. They're really close to being good. They've done a good job through the draft as well, so it will be interesting to see who they take this year.
I heard that Mike Martz was added to help the offense in Chicago. If he can get them back to running the ball with Forte and get Cutler under control, the Bears could be a surprise team. They had injuries on defense and I thought they would be sort of a surprise team this year. But, with Cutler, who knows.
yeah as a bears fan, I'm very happy with the Martz hire and I'm obviouslly partially biased when it comes to the bears chances. However, until they fill the DC position, I'm reserving judgement on bears chances, they need some1 who understands defence and has experience with the tampa 2 defence. Some1 like Herm Edwards, who did coach in tampa with Lovie Smith. If they get some1 like him as DC, then yeah sure, I like bears chances.

The Giants and 49ers were both underdogs this past weekend, and both came away with a win. Now they'll play each other for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. Who do you think will win this matchup?
