They could either be most improved by getting better this offseason, or most improved just by finally getting a chance on the field.

I've got 3:

1. James Carpenter: I think like Okung this year, next year he finally stays healthy. I think he will become a dominant left guard and with Okung-Carp-Unger we will once again have a dominant side of the o'line just like '05.

2. Bruce Irvin: We saw flashes. We saw crazy athletic ability. We saw that he's raw. I think we'll see a big jump in technique and production next year.

3. Russell Wilson: To be honest, I dont know where he can improve that much. But, he's Russell Wilson, so I Know he will.

I like those 3. I think Wagner will improve a lot as well.

And I'm hoping Thurmond improves -- at least his reliability and health (just for you, Ducks man!).

1. Bobby Wagner - He's going to have a lot more time to prepare and I expect his ability to read offenses, combined with a better LBer to the weak side, will have us extolling him.

2. J.R. Sweezy - Cable is going to kick his ass

3. Giacomini - See a trend?

Wilson - even though he played great, when you combine his work ethic with the fact that he will be taking all the snaps as the starter next camp, he will take things to another level.

Earl Thomas.

His tackles went way down this year (27 less), but I think that's impart due to the level of play by Wagner and our LB crew. While only 3 INTs in the regular season, he did have 2 in our last 2 games.

I think you'll continue to see this guy grow. He is a ballhawk! Reminds me of Ed Reed the way he flys over the top and picks off passes. As our D continues to become better, ET is the all important wildcard who will roam around and make plays all over.

Credit to Jaquizzz..who absolutely destroyed ET :( OUCH.

I'm more concerned over who the most improved dot-net mod will be. I'm looking at you, Jseahawks.

I'm with ya. You're Earl. Radish and Abs are Boulware, Hamlin, Russell, etc.

Most improved Hawk, will be Irvin, by far.

Sooooo is hope for Irvin's improvement predicated on him packing on some pounds and playing end with his hand in the dirt or developing some additional moves and returning to the role of a pure speed rusher?

He stunk as a tweener yesterday.

WAGS! When he gets his NFL battle tested man body, he's going to be a force! He's just a baby and could very well be the leagues DROY.

My vote is for DT Jaye Howard. I don't think he got one regular season rep at DT, but he is coming out of the coaches dog house and onto the playing field. Howard's going to start at the 3-tech and get double digit sacks.

If this happens...wow, the sky is the limit for this team next year

Sweezy, Irvin, and Lane.

Wilson has to work better in the pocket and stop routinely miss open receivers.

Here is what I feel will happen. Russell Wilson will lead this team in the offseason. He will hold workouts, film sessions, and drills to make this team better. Anyone who attends those sessions will be better.

Wilson will get better. The few rookie mistakes he made will fully disappear. The next level is going to be changing the play at the line. I believe this kid has the intelligence and work ethic to be similar to Manning in that regard. Not saying he will be Manning but anything approaching that would improve his game and help out the team. I also expect the zone read to be less of a factor. ATL shut it down and he still had 385 passing and 60 rush on scrambles. It will still be around as a threat but I say he steps up big time next year as a pocket QB.

Expect the defensive rookies, Guy, Suggs, Lane, and Wagner, to have an even bigger impact. Trufant is likely out at least as a starter. If Thrumond is healthy him Lane and Guy can play the Nickle and Dime. Maxwell too. I just don't see Tru coming back. Maybe one more at low pay just to make one last run at a ring.

Sweezy will continue to grow.

Tate. He really came on strong this year and I think his best years are ahead of him.

Miller. He is a baller and if the line is more consistent I expect him to get used more in the passing game.

I'm so pumped for this team. Russell's work ethic and leadership has given us so much to be excited for.

1) Carpenter - saw a glimpse of what he can be if he stays healthy when he pancaked Justin Smith

2) Wagner - still learning to diagnose what the offense is doing. As he learns that, I expect him to start making the plays in the opponents backfield that he is now making on his side of the LOS.

3) Malcolm Smith - found a way to get on the field this year and once there found a way to stay even after Leroy Hill was healthy. :179422:

Michael Robinson- His Camera work in the locker room is shakey at best and he gave up one fumble of the camera to Rice.

Russell. I can easily see him breaking several records next year including passer efficiency. I also hope to see big gains from Sweezy, Carp and Breno.

On the defensive side I see more growth coming from Wags, and KJ.
