    For me, surprise would have to be M. Bennett. He's only had one standout season, and many figured it was because he was on the Giants. I was one of them.

    Disappointment, would have to be Lance Briggs. He's amazing as a playmaker, but as a playcaller, he leaves a lot to be desired.

    Surprise: Trestman, MBennett, Alshon Jeffery, entire oline.

    Disappointment: Tucker and the entire defense, except Peanut and Jennings.

    Really? With him playing better than last year he is the biggest disappointment considering everything else going on?

    Considering the hype with the QB whisperer.... yeah. He is still making the poor decisions that put us behind a rock. Sure, he led us to a a couple last second wins.... but his mistakes put us in that situation that he needed to get us there.

    This game was probably his best game because he did all he could..... but the rest of the team (minus jeffery) decided not to show up

    hmmm.. Well, I'm seeing progress with him so he is not my biggest disappointment. I would have to say the D is my biggest disappointment. I thought it might drop off, but never saw it happening to this level.

    there is improvement, you can see that on the 4th quarter drives that win. But those were only needed because he allowed other team to stick around and pull ahead

    well, I said I see improvement. Don't get that confused with fixed. But because of the improvement, he is not my biggest disappointment. That was my only point.

    With a totally REVAMPED team in the last two years ...

    the fact that we are 3-2 instead of 0-5 intrigues me.

    We are going to lose games ... but I didnt expect us to win ANY games.

    Lets look at the INJURYS so far.

    We are losing too many.
