The Beans 2012 season can all be summed up with the name of just one player: Robert Griffin III. Griffin brought the Beans back to relevance and captivated the league as he showed off his rushing and passing abilities on his way to becoming one of the most dynamic players in the NFL. Griffin and a scotch tape roster scratched and clawed their way to their first post season appearance since 2008. 2012 was an exciting season for the Beans and it will be interesting to see if they can build on their success in 2013.Can RGIII follow up on his blockbuster 2012 season?
Where does the production on this team come from outside of Jones and RGIII? Outside of these two players, Alshon Jeffery is probably the next best bet for some production. Bernard Pierce is slated for a bigger role, but will the Ravens really have Ray Rice on the sidelines while collecting a big check? It's unlikely. The Beans are going to need to find some production in the draft if they want to compete with the Chickens for the division title.
Player to Watch
Alshon Jeffery, WR CHI – Jeffery was a star during his early days of college but has seen his stock dip a bit due to erratic QB play his last year in college and then sustained a wrist injury in 2012. If anyone saw him play his sophomore year, they know this guy has immense talent. With a new offensive minded coach in Chicago and Brandon Marshall around to handle the double teams, Jeffery is poised to have a break-through season.
RGIII, Bernard Pierce, Alshon Jeffery, Julio Jones, DeSean Jackson, Martellus Bennett, Kicker, Draft Pick
Should RGIII return to form, the Beans will probably be okay. Bobby is excellent at plugging holes in his lineup. If Leshoure manages to carve out a role on the Lions, it would really improve the depth of this team. With the Huskers and Brothers seemingly having no shot in this division, the Beans will be right there waiting to steal first place should the Chickens falter.
7-6; 577 Points; 2nd Place NFC West
