    Who on offense could have a very good year and why?

    Follow up on the defense topic I posted. Who is going to be they key to the offense this year and why. Answering Ben doesn't count because we all know it starts with the QB. Who are those other players who will have career years and really make a difference.

    My votes:

    Matt Spaeth-bigger role this year than last and legitimate red zone threat. I predict at least 20 catches and 6 TDs. His improvement will make Heath even more dangerous and Heath will again put up career numbers.

    Limas Sweed-puts Washington on the sideline and lights it up with some big plays. He also prevents other teams from doubling Holmes and Hines. I predict 30 catches and 5 TDs.

    I think Holmes does.
    Third year, I think he comes into his own.

    You said Spaeth, and while I agree on the position, I think it needs to be Heath. This guy is extremely talented and can be a big time TE if they gave him the opportunity. As overrated as Shockey is and Winslow can be (at times), I think Miller can be better than both, and they get alot of accolades.

    With the addition of Sweed and Mendenhall, we can see some different looks hopefully. Sweed alone can clear some guys out of the middle and give some good matchups to Heath. Get him the darn ball!!

    ...i am going with Hines Weezy. With Holmes, Big Money, Parker/Mendenhall and Sweed running loose i am predicting Ocho-Sixo to have a nice year (again).

    I'm going with Willie Parker. I think the addition of Mendenhall will help Parker become more effective. If he has fresh legs late in the game, he will really become dangerous. The addition of Mendenhall should also lengthen Parker's career.

    He's gotta raise that TD total! I think he will have a huge year as well.

    Justin Hartwig. Just because he is not Sean Mahan.

    I think how good Heath is has a lot to do with Ben. If Ben looks at the TE as a primary target then I think our offense takes it to the next level and Ben gets sacked much less.

    The keys may also be Arians and Ken Anderson. They need to sell Ben on quick and short and get him out of his gunslinger mentality. Ben has his big contract signed so hopefully he looks at how he can become the best QB in the league. He needs to get as good as Manning and Brady as taking what the defense gives you versus trying to force big plays.

    Ben... hands down. He'll have more production just by sheer number of weapons around him. He's the trigger. I think an all-out nastier running game will open up the passing game and with the hands that are both at the line, the flat and playing wideout, he'll have less sacks and a significant increase in passer rating. Ben makes the PRO BOWL with stellar numbers.
