Default Your Pick for Potential 'Surprise' MVP

We have seen the Super Bowl often become a game where one or two plays makes a guy a household name. Think Timmy Smith, Larry Brown(gulp!), Chuck Howley for example. I was thinking about what Steelers' could have this type of impact and came up with a couple of of different players.

1. Timmons- He has been all over the field in the 2 playoff games nearly making some spectacular plays. Could this be the one?

2. Miller- Very possible because of the attention paid to Holmes and Ward.

3. Washington-Call it a hunch, but I have a feeling he is going to have one of those games where catches 4 balls for 140 yards and a touch.
Thoughts?

a surprise MVP...hmmmm...

Holmes - he'll make a few catches, but they'll be BIG catches and game changers.

Clark - he migh have a pick, but he'll be a big hitter and a few hits for loss of yard or breaking up plays.

Harrison - big sacks and big losses of yards in the clutch.

but i wouldn't be surprised if it went to Roethlisberger....just based on principle.

Default Re: Your Pick for Potential 'Surprise' MVP

Well I am going to say for my BIG SURPRISE, my #1 pick, that I can see this guy pulling off a couple big plays and making an impact. But I am gonna give 3 possibilities in my mind.

1. LIMAS SWEED (just sayin it would certainly be a Larry Brown type surprise.... but)
2. Ike Taylor (making some biggies against Fitz)
3. Willie Parker (Just blowing the Cards D up and completely controling the clock )

I dont think guys like Polamalu, Roethlisberger, Ward, or even Holmes would be what I would call BIG SURPRISES. Although I would put my boy Heath Miller in that category, but wouldnt be real surprised with Miller.

I feel Miller can be the key to the game. he is the TE who will be overlooked in the Cards practices, and when he gets hot recieving, he comes up big on every play either blocking or catching.

I have to agree

I think Sweed is pissed off (go ask Corey Ivy!) and due for a break-out game

I just got a feelin' about The Sweed!
