    So it's got to be that S who's-name-I-can't-pronounce who will be making the biggest impact.

    Re: Who are you hoping will make the biggest impact

    I think that K.C. also had one that would qualify for this list. He was their first draft choice last year. Unfortunately I can't remember his name and most assuredly cannot spell it. (It seems to me that he was a DL line prospect from Oregon.)

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Without question, Alex Barron. GC nailed it with regard to his potential and ability to effect the whole team. If he does his job on the line, Bulger should be unstoppable and the offense should once again be a force at getting into the endzone. Moving the chains, sustaining drives and racking up points will only help the defense stay fresh, be aggresive, be opportunistic and able to dictate the terms of a games flow. Just like the good old days.

    Good Tracy Lord! I guess the rule: "i before e except after c" doesn't apply here. What a list. Although it is MISTER Mxyzptlk (pronounced Mix-yez-pittle-ick) to most, a list like this, none_the_less, forces me to say ... KLTPZYXM
