Jerseys to Buy, Jerseys to Burn
Rest of Article
Jersey to Buy:: Braylon Edwards, #17: Sure, Brady Quinn's the popular pick. But Edwards, the top pick from two years ago, is ready to explode in '07. Finally healthy, he should have a breakout year.
Jersey to Burn:: Tim Couch, #2: Even before the recent comeback and HGH stuff, Browns fans stopped donning the Tim Couch jersey. Now, it's just really lame.
Jersey to Buy:: Daniel Sepulveda, #9: Everybody's favorite Steelers rookie is a 6-3, 230 pound punter with a mean streak. A lefty with a wacky knuckleball punt, fans may be most familiar with Sepulveda from this crazy YouTube clip. Whether he lays out any punt returners or not, his jersey is going to be a hot seller in the Steel City this season.
Jersey to Burn:: Amos Zereoue, #21: Zereoue came to pittsburgh with a lot of hype and tons of promise. He just never delivered. It's safe to say it's now finally OK to retire his jersey ... to the trash can.
Jersey to Buy:: Leon Hall, #29: Michigan's recent performance aside, Leon Hall's supposed to be the poster boy for the "new" Bengals. A wonderful student, a steady performer, and a respected leader, the first-round pick should get plenty of playing time in '07.
Jersey to Burn:: Take your choice of first-round busts from the past 20 years: David Klingler, Peter Warrick, Akili Smith, Ki-Jana Carter. Up to you. Now that the Bengals are somewhat respectable, you probably shouldn't still be wearing any of the above mentioned jerseys.
Jersey to Buy:: Bart Scott, #57: The up-and-coming linebacker should make the jump to the next level in '07. Already the subject of a feature in the Sports Illustrated NFL preview issue, Scott could give Ray Lewis a run for his money as the most engaging personality on the Ravens defense this year.
Jersey to Burn:: Elvis Grbac, #18: The off-season following Trent Dilfer's heroic Super Bowl win, he was replaced by the highly paid Grbac at quarterback. After a disappointing 2001, Elvis "left the building" a year later. The whole thing was an utter debacle. So what if you bought the jersey then? There's no reason to still own it now.
