    Hoping for Juwan Washington to latch on somewhere, but there are only so many running back spots to go along. If played similarly from a CB spot, there would be a place for him, but it is not the same. I am hoping to see Vinny Papale show up somewhere. It was fun to see him make the team in year 1 and continuously grow from game to game with the Bandits. In year 2, he took another couple of steps. I hope to see him continue at, at least that level in year 3.
